Help, 12v DC Lipo charger red light blinking!
I'm new to this forum and to rc model planes. I recently bought my first rc plane, the Phoenix 2 from phase 3. It was really easy to assemble, but there is no instructions on the basic charger that was included with the pack. It is the Z-PH018-19, a 12v DC balanced charger.
I read a lot about the risks involved with Lipo's and now I'm trying to charge the battery. There is only one led on the charger and it is blinking red. I searched high and low on the net to find a manual or guidelines but nothing.
Can anyone help please!!

Cant seem to find this particular chargers info. It looks like it had some descriptive text on its face. Maybe find a clue there.
If its like other cheapy chargers the blinking indicates that the battery is near full charge and is in 'trickle' mode. The blinking should get slower and slower. When it blinks like once every 3-5 seconds its pretty much done.
But thats just a guess.
