Charge time

Post by onions » Wed Sep 04, 2019 9:18 pm

Hello everyone, I'm wanting to know if my Equinox is slow in charging. I went out yesterday on a full charge, and had a long day detecting, but the battery was showing 2 out of 3 bars still lit up. I put it on charge today, and five hours later it's still charging. The instructions say from flat it should take around 4 hours, and I'm using the right powered plug that I bought specially from a metal detecting supplier. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts and how long yours take to charge.
Paul.

Thanks Blackadder, I just didn't want to have a dud and not do anything about it under warranty.

I know my phones were as dead as a dodo, but the machine had a little juice left
Keep an eye on it though, maybe when you have a 4 hour session see how long it takes...mine is a couple of hours for that sort of charge

I'm hopefully getting out for a few hours tomorrow, so I will see how long it takes after that.

I have various USB chargers and find that the Nox & WM-08 can be a bit fussy. I once left it charging overnight and the green light was still flashing. x;
