Rad battery question

I just installed my battery after a full charge. After turning the key to on I pushed the charge level button on the battery which I've never done before. It showed 3 green lights and one red light. Does this mean my battery didn't fully charge? The charger light showed red and green before I removed it.

I don't know, but I've never relied on the battery lights at all. In fact, they don't work on my batteries, but my batteries work fine. What does the bike display indicate about the battery level?

It showed full and my range has not changed since new. That's the first time I tried the button on the battery as I never noticed it before plus there is no mention of it anywhere in the manual. When I got home from a 20 mile ride there were 2 green lights left and the one red which I guess indicates I used about 1/3 the available battery power which matched what the display indicated.

I think the last (or under 25% charge) LED is always red when you check the battery charge at any level. I think it is easier to put a red filter on that LED than doing the electronic means of turning that light from green to red when the power drops to that LED only. Even my 11.4ah 2016 Rad Rover batteries have the same red only filter on the last LED like my wife's 14ah battery for her Radcity step thru.

Yes that is the same on my Mini. As far as know that’s Normal

I've never paid any attention to the lights on my batteries, except a long time ago to notice that they didn't work. Maybe someone else more knowledgeable will chime in, but in three years with two batteries, my battery lights only worked for about 5 minutes and it's never been an issue at all.
