Spektrum Question

I just picked up my first Spektrum transmitter and have a few questions. It is a DX7s.

Does Spektrum use a diode in their radios that won't let you use a peak detection charger?

Does anyone sell a charge plug that will fit the DX7s?

Thanks,
Tony

The DX7s has built in charger inside the transmitter and only requires a 12v power source.
DO NOT connection your hobby charger to the radio..

Charging Your Transmitter
The DX7s includes a rechargeable NiMH battery pack. The DX7s has a built-in multi-chemistry charger designed to charge 4-cell NiMH and 2-cell LiPo batteries at a charge rate of 200mAh.
The charge port on the right side of the transmitter is not polarity-dependent.
CAUTION: Never connect a peak detection charger or fast charger to your DX7s. These devices can damage the internal charge circuit. Use only the included 12V DC source.
Charge in a safe place NOT affected by the usual heat that comes from a charger and batteries during charging.

Another DX7S question. Is there a way to assign the timer reset function to a switch?

No. It's always on the CLEAR button.
