Can't be old because 2.0 amp is only out for a year.


Normal charge time should be around 25 Minutes for a 2 amp on a DC18RC.


" if" the batteries were hot then the charger would have cooled them down to a good temp before starting to charge them.


Drain em  ( no worries.  any tools that had 2.0 amp batteries with them has over discharge protection ) and try charging them again and check the time again.


If problem persist:  Take it back to your dealer and have it replaced. Could be a construction mistake :)
