Battery OSTC plus

Hi,

Since I changed my battery to a 1,5V AA duracel (non-rechargeable) the internal battery doesn't seem to charge anymore. The charging pad blinks twice a second green, what means that the battery should be full according to your FAQ answers.

However, whether I chose T0 (disposable 1,5V battery) or T2 (internal rechargeble) battery the percentages seem the same.

I used to see during charging that the battery percentage was highlighted in yellow.

What could be the problem?

Kind regards

??? There is only one battery in an OSTC - if you insert an AA non-rechargeable, you NEED TO enter the correct battery type und you MUST NOT attempt any recharging - never ever !!!

Batt-Percentage in yellow indicates charging is in progress. If you tell the OSTC it is a rechargeable battery when in fact it is not, and you then do charging, serious things can happen, so once again: don't do such things!

Here are some details: [www.facebook.com]

Current firmwares do not allow to choose this kind of battery in the OSTC plus. 1,5V batteries, even if selected, are not being charged from the internal charger but you create waste heat in the OSTC and should be avoided anyway.

Hi all,
is there a recommended limit in Amperes for 3.7V rechargable batteries to be used in OSTC PLUS? I am currently using a 750mAh and I'm wondering whether using a higher capacity is safe and could improve duration of recharge.
Kind regards

Hello,

You can use higher capacity ones. But please take in mind that everything above 850-900mAh is probably fake. There are no rechargeable 2000mAh 3,7V AA Lithium batteries.

Regards,
Matthias
