Reply to "Legacy Command Base"

I have had my base fixed twice - both under warranty.  The first time was to get a code update (required a tech to perform), the second time was a dead base. A Lionel technician informed the charging circuit was the probable cause of failure because it is not designed to self regulate itself. I don't know if that was the actual failure mode,  but I no longer use the base to charge the remote batteries.

What is the concensus?

Hi Scott,

Since I sent it back I told them to also look to see if the charging circuit needed to be looked at. When I got it back, I felt obligated to test it. It did charge the remote but when I returned the next day it would no longer power up.  The law of 20/20 hindsight comes to mind. I certianly will not use the new unit for charging. The first thing I did to the new unit is tape over the contacts and flip the switch on the back.
