I bought the same camera in December (just before Xmas), have used it a handful of times. Long story short, charged the camera before usage, and it didn't turn to 'fully charged' even though I continued to leave it in there for the full day, and then overnight when that didn't charge it. Original battery might last 30 mins max now.
Recently decided to just buy a new battery, thinking that the original battery must be the issue, but no, exactly same thing is happening to my brand new battery. SO in my case, it MUST almost certainly be the charger that is the issue.
As I have only owned it for just over 6 weeks, can I provide proof of receipt and request a replacement for the charger?

Contact Canon and get them to exchange the charger. It is malfunctioning and if it decides to reverse its malfunction behavior it will go from under to overcharge which creates a fire hazard. Currently at least your charger has failed in a safe manner.

I would return the new battery and try a replacement. Generally the continuosly flashing light indicates a defective battery.
It is best to stick with a Canon sourced battery because third party products are a gamble at best.
