LC-e6e charger lights stopped blinking and had burning smell while charging original canon battery

The lights on the original charger of my 5dmk3 stopped blinking while charging the original canon battery and had burning smell. i have hardly used the charger as each charge would last me months. anyone know if this is a known issue with this charger. i never had any issues with my previous 30 d charger for 8 years. this one only lasted 2 years.

Do exactly as Canon says on this one; they're being unusually cautious for a reason. If all that happened is that the charger burned out, it's no big deal. But a defective lithium-ion battery can be a fire hazard.

I agree with Bob on that. If there was a burning smell don't try plugging it in again etc. Also recommend storing the suspect battery in a non combustible container or area such as a cement floor away from things that can ignite.
