I'm betting that the batteries are DOA just as you surmised. My CMS has the same disc type laser system as your and the battery that came with the saw didn't last very long. The replacement battery that I bought at a Walgreen's store has so far lasted 3 or 4 times longer than the OEM battery did.
~~Don't worry about old age; it doesn't last that long.
