On mine the light starts solid green, and then after awhile it starts to blink...does that mean it is charged?
Answer is in the FAQ thread:
Q 11: I have a Revell Proto Max and use the TX to charge the lipo. According to the manual the charging light should go off when the lipo is fully charged, but it starts blinking instead?
A: This seems to be an issue only with the Proto Max batteries, which have a little Low Voltage Protection circuitry built in. Jtravel asked someone at Revell directly about this, and it was confirmed a blinking light means a charged battery, so the manual is not fully accurate there. Some users report that the light will go out a while later, but based upon current information you should remove the Proto Max battery when the light starts blinking. If you want to be sure the battery is fully charged, test with a voltage meter, it should read around 4.20V, might be a little higher when just coming of the charger.
Appears like there is an error in the manual. It should be full when the light starts blinking. Use a voltmeter to verify. And best, get a wall charger, these are pretty cheap, and you will have earned it back pretty soon because you don't need new TX batteries all the time.
