    This is more a bug report than support request, I have a battery charger. I just lose the clock time when I remove the batteries to recharge them.

    Roughly 1min. after plugging into a charger I get "Charge Error" on the screen. I've tried 6 different chargers just to verify that's not relevant. 5v 500mA, 5v 850mA, 5v 2.1A, 5.1v 2.6A, 5.1v 5.8A, and 4.9v 37A.

    Firmware: 180617
    Model: RX300

    NToolbox Version:
    18.05.10.2217

    Settings used:
    USB Max Charging Current: 1.5A
    USB Max Charging Current: 1.0A
    USB Max Charging Current: 0.5A

    If there is any additional information I can provide of use, let me know.

    Hello!
    Did you try to charge on stock firmware? Does it charges normally, or gives the same error?

    Unsure, didn't quite test that. I never ran it on stock before, loaded this up out of box. Will give a try and edit the results in this post after I do.

    Still got Charge Error on stock. Seems it's the unit that's got a problem and not related to the firmware. Guess the question now is if it's worth not having anything for a while for the wait of a RMA.

    You may try to change your device since it malfunctioned. Also i want to notice that charging batteries through mod is not a best choice.

    There are few reasons to not do that:
    1. Very low charge speed;
    2. Software balancing that is far away from ideal;
    3. Shortening the life of the device;
    In my opinion charging batteries via mod appropriate only in critical situations ;)
