My used Evo did that when I used the wrong charger (The original owner gave me his laptop charger by mistake) When I got the correct charger, it worked fine, but it still will not charge properly (rapid flashes) when I hook it to a 12v car battery connection.

I have had zero problems charging my Evolution 8 with the charger that came with it.

So I received a new charger today and it is now charging .
Gently squeeze the connector of the old charger with pliers and you might find that both chargers work. A poor connection is a very common problem. But it's good to hear your problem is resolved.
One other problem with early Evolution chargers is that the United Kingdom adapter plug was only snapped together during assembly. If it ever came apart when extracting it from the mains socket (as mine did), it reveals a live 240v pin. I exchanged mine for a new charger that had the same fault. I then purchased an independent charger that met relevant UK standards.
Regulations on Chinese imported electrical goods into the UK have been strengthened, but be cautious about any Chinese chargers. I recently bought an electric steamer (cooking) that had no earth connection in the plug hence failed to meet UK standards. Amazon UK were horrified that it had slipped through their scrutiny (but it had been sold/despatched by the Chinese importer vendor).
