I just recently purchased my T3i, brand new,only 1 or 2 weeks ago, something I noticed is that if I take the battery off the charged and put it right back on it'll say charging again.

Is this something normal or should i contact canon?

Thanks!

It could be just that the charger automatically starts charging when a battery is inserted no matter what the battery state is, does it take long to indicate that the battery is charged when you do that?

Sounds pretty normal. I think that the charger only knows that the battery is 'full' because the rate at which is accepts a charge, drops (or is has increased resistance)....something like that.
So when you put it back on, the charger starts charging as normal...but it may take a short while for it to realize that the battery is actually fully charged.

Not at all

Thanks for that explanation! I was scared that I might have done something wrong haha
