Dear Olympus design engineers,

I just sold my E-PL1 and acquired an E-M10. Of course I am happy and satisfied with this exchange, except for one little detail:

I wish I still had the old battery charger.

The old charger did something normal and reasonable, when the battery was fully charged: The LED color changed. The new charger turns the LED completely off. Do you agree with me, that a dead LED is not a meaningful means to signal a full battery inside a connected, active charger? Aside from bleakly signalling a full battery, the dark LED might also signal:

defective charger,

defective cable,

disconnected power plug,

defective fuse,

defective grid,

defective power plant.

I am a design engineer of electronics, and my desk is loaded with different devices and meters. More than once it happened to me that I had the active chager with a full battery connected for days without taking notice.

Therefore I am asking you to kindly give me back my old charger in exchange for the new design.

Sincerely, Herbert
