If it hasn't been charged in 4 weeks, probably is normal. It's not unusual for it to take up to 16 hours to complete a charging cycle if the batteries are weak.

This is normal in almost all cases and is called "equalizing". If you measure your PACK voltage when this is happening, charger showing the 3-5 volts, your digital volt meter should read under 64 volts. Your charger is set to take them to 62 volts, (mine hits 63.8 volts just before it shuts down at the end of it's charging cycle.)
