Default Battery question

Fairly new to the Spyder family. Just got a new ACS. Is there a battery charged indicator anywhere on the marker? I know there is one for 1/3 battery life, but how about a fully charged LED?

Thanks!

you don't. It takes 14-16 hours to charge a Kingman battery with a standard charger...6 hours for the fast charger.

when u turn it on u see a little red battery signal when you turn it off. If it is fully charged or just about when you turn it off the little red barrety indicator will not show up.

btw welcome to the forums

Not unless you have a charger with a sensor thing. I have a seperate charger for all types of nmh bateries, and it automatically detects when they're full, and stops charging.

using your car battery as a main charger for anything, batteries, cell phones, is not good because it will ruin your car battery and you will have to replace it.
