PAK Thread Two: Catwoman Blues

Hey, /toy/. About a week ago, I put up an in-depth and non-bias review about Play Arts Kai Metal Gear Solid Meryl. While she had her flaws, I loved her to death.
So I decided to pick up another PAK figure to see if either my enjoyment of Meryl was a one figure thing or something that all PAK figures have. On the recommendation of several other anons, I bought Catwoman from a seller on eBay for $50.
This is what I got, right out of the mailing package. I gotta say, I'm none too happy about this purchase.

Okay so I picked up an Invictus 10MT RTR along with an additional battery today and have read through the manual. In there, under the "Charging the Battery" section, it clearly states "The LED on the charger should turn from RED to GREEN when charging. Unplug the battery from the charger when the battery is slightly warm to the touch, and the LED has changed back to solid RED, indicating the battery has been charged." Source:
Now, on the charger unit itself it has a sticker with an LED guide that says the following: "LED status: Red - Charging. Green - Charged/Trickle"
What gives? A few other questions/notes. When jiggling the connector/wires the LED color changes between red and green. The batteries are 9.6v 1800mAh NiMH. Do these come fully charged or depleted when you buy them? Is the charger perhaps faulty? I've had one battery plugged in for about 2 hours now, I have no idea if it's charging or how I'm supposed to know when it will be done.
