Charging Retrostone

Post by nk02 » Mon 27 Aug 2018 11:19

Hi.

I received my retrostone 2 days ago.

I wanted to charge it before use it.

When I plug micro usb on the device the third blue led starting from the top lights up.

It stays on charge for hours, and the same led is again on, not the full battery one.

Is this meaning battery isn't charging ?

I used a 2.4A usb charger, I use for my phone.

Hi,

When the third led is ON it means it's charging.

The 4th LED turn ON when charge is done (should be about 5 hours for full charge)

Thanks for reply.

So I think I have an issue because I left the device charging for more than 6 hours and it's the same led that stays on.

Can you try letting is a bit more to see what happens?
If it does not change after can you try using it to see if you can play for several hours to see if battery is full or empty?

It should be 4-5 hours.

I mistaken in my previous message, fully charge is 5-6 hours. It's the battery life 4-5 hours.

I Had similar problem, so I tried to let my Retrostone charging a whole night to figure out.
4th Led was turned on when I woke up. I retried with several chargers. 4th Led always finishes to light up.

Maybe it takes a little bit more than 5 hours to charge the battery up to 100%

Hope this helps for worried users.

Hi.

I've done the charging test.

After 12 hours connected to usb charger, I only get the 2 lower leds on.

It seems it's not charging well.

I'll try playing to see battery duration wile device is in use.

The 2 lower led on means it's fully charged.

LED1 = unit on
LED2 = low battery
LED3 = charging
LED4 = Fully charged
