You see TWO red lights on the charger base when it is charging, right? The right-hand one turns to blue once the unit is charged.
I get around 5 days of use of the MX-1200 without a recharge - maybe more - it lasts so long I don't really take note of how long I am able to go without recharging.
It sounds to me like you have a defective battery or a defective charging base.
You can get another battery. I have used an ER-D210 in the past. The model numbers tend to change and they claim different amp-hours. But, it's nice to have a spare when you accidentally let it run all the way down.
Yes, I am getting both lights. If I leave it on there for 24 hours or so, I may get a blue light. It seems I have to charge it every other day.
