Charge Multiple Times
on April 2, 2011
After reading some of the recent reviews I was a little worried, but because I had already purchased a blue battery pack that worked fine a year ago I decided to give it another shot. The problem that I think people are having is that they don't know how to charge it properly. The battery, after not having charge for so long, needs to be put on and taken off the charger multiple time for the initial charge. The first time you put it on the light will turn green very soon if not immediately. You then have disconnect and reconnect the battery, and you continue to do this until the light stays red. Once it stays red then it's charging the battery. I was very happy that the new battery worked just as well as the one I bought a year ago with a little charge tweaking (I have charged it once and used the battery for ~10 hours thus far and it still has 3/4 on the battery indicator).
