well I charged on PC usb + cable light comes with, and got the green light within an hour, so I guess I will try a few different sources and see if the fault happens again.

I haven’t had a problem with low voltage so far.

Charged it up after more than a month, and my “USB Tester” showed ~32 mAh consumed. i.e. routhly 50% of the expected capacity, though that’s not accounting for losses. Light output wasn’t noticeably low yet, but my use is infrequent and for short bursts.

Only once did I try to deplete the battery fully, but the light never turned off and just got really dim. I’d be curious to see how many mAh it would take from that state, but I also don’t want to damage the battery without LVP..

I also got a green one from the BF deal. I was also hoping for another color. At least it makes a good gift.

I was charging mine but fell asleep, when I got up the indicator light was still red 7 hours later or more, it seems to have charged though, anyone have this issue?

Yes. I had a 3 hour charging session where the light remained red. It seemed charged. The next time I charged it after a little use, the light turned green after about an hour. Unsettling.

Happening again. It’s been charging for maybe 12+ hours, with a few interruptions, and the charging light is still red.

The flashlight shines bright again, so it’s not like it didn’t recharge. My USB meter shows it pulling just 0.016A. I wonder why hasn’t terminated charging and switched to the green light.

Btw, even when it started charging with the battery quite drained, it was drawing only ~0.050A.
