Flip Ultra HD Not Charging Properly... I think

Hello All,
I recently purchased a Flip Ultra HD camcorder. Whenever I plug the camcorder into the wall charger, the screen displays that it is connected and then it shows a battery icon with a red sliver showing that the battery is almost drained. It takes about 20 seconds before a lightning bolt appears over the battery icon to show that it is charging. I leave it to charge and then I come back in about an hour and hit the red button. The battery icon then shows that it has more power (red sliver is wider and is now green). However, the lightning bolt is no longer there. I assume that since the lightning bolt is not there, it is no longer charging. I then unplug the flip from the wall and plug it back in. It then again shows that it is connected, but when the battery icon comes back on, it is back to being a red sliver. I have repeated this several times and can't get it to fully charge. BTW, the front red light is on when it is plugged into the wall indicating that it is charging. Does the light go off or turn off to show that it is fully charged? Thoughts?
