Did not want to start a new thread since I have a similar charging question.
Was curious about the slimline charger. I got my replacement DAV in the mail last night (Tuesday) used it until it died and put it on the charger until I left for work.
My question is what color are the lights on your slim line charger when your DAV charges? I have the 900 (medium) DAV and as soon as I put it on the charger the light on the charger flashes red and green (2 secs red, flash green) it is still doing it 30 mins later. Also at work while it was charging the red light would flash no green just red. It is weird because my other batteries did not, they were just always a solid red until they turned green (well at least I did not see any color changes).
Help with charging DAV
My slimlines show red while charging, with a quick flicker to green.
When the charge is complete, they'll go solid green.
As above. Depending on the level of discharge and capacity, it can take quite a while to charge. For example, I use the 1300mah model and if I run them down completely (which I try to avoid) they can take well over 8 hours to charge back to full.

Thanks BHam! I just went out to place an order and saw the new chargers! Did you check the new USB with the DAV yet? I'm getting another DAV starter kit and I'm assuming the slim wall charger will be the new design. If the USB is new and works with the DAV, I'll order a new one of those too! Thanks
My current charger flickers too but stays green when fully charged. Maybe that will change with these new chargers.
What new usb charger Ms. Okieph? That's the usb charger they've always had, and will not work with the DAV without adapters. The slim line is still the only charger Vapor4Life suggests using (and the only charger they sell compatible with them for this reason) to use with the DAV. Once the slim line enters cv mode it will flicker green until the battery is fully charged.
Morandir835, I'm referring to BHam's 4/28 reply to my original post.
Once, in a pinch I used my Portable Vapor King Case Charger to charge my DAV...it seemed to work just fine...
I really don't want to sound like a witch with a capital B, but...
I really wish I had known that the USB charger does not work with the DAV's. While the description doesn't say that it does, it really isn't clear that it DOESN'T.
It works just fine with my EGO batts. Also it is FAST! Which was kinda what I was hoping for. It takes between 9-12 hours to charge my DAV's on the slimeline charger, and I was hoping that using the usb charger would improve that.
Being the geek-girl that I am I am tempted to do a bit of a case mod on the charger since the only problem seems to be that the threads are recessed into the case. Hmmm... It looks like a little light grinding with my dremel and that should be all that is needed.
Oh, by the way, the guys in shipping get a gold star from me! I ordered it on Friday and I got it on Saturday! Nice job fellows!
Ms Sandra, I use a couple of adaptors but believe that the case mod would work as well. Let us know how you make out. Good luck.
