WPS 500 charging

Postby Liteace » Thu Apr 23, 2015 10:13 am

Couple of questions

Whats the run time of WPS with fully charged battery and when is it fully charged, in the manual it says:

Charging indicator:
Lights up when
battery is charging

Does the light go out when its fully charged, on mine the red LED will light bright to start then glow dim after a couple of hours but it never goes out out, in this pic you can see the LED glowing but it making it look brighter than it is, I have to shield it from any light to see the LED glowing dim

If I do leave it charging all night like I do with me phone and laptop will it overcharge and damage the battery ??

Thanks

Hi there

the charging circuit in the WPS500 is safe to be left on over night but to get the best out of the battery I would not keep it on charge continually.

The battery should take around 4 hours to charge fully from flat but for the best result I would recomend discharging the battery before recharging.
