Light will go out when connections are made and come back on when battery charging is complete.

If you have a digital volt meter, put it on the battery while charging. Should read about 14.5 volts when the battery is fully charged. Don't leave the charger on after it hits that voltage because it is hard on the battery.

Another thing to mention is that the battery charge indicators that Vexilar uses are not terribly accurate. It is possible that the last LED is not going to come on until the battery reaches a voltage that the charger may never reach. In other words, the last LED may be calibrated to come on at 15 volts and the charger can’t get there or the indicator is properly calibrated to about 14.5 but the charger does not have enough oomph to get even that high. As I mentioned in my last post, the only way to accurately tell if the battery is charged is to use a digital volt meter.

Is this a new set up? If it is I would take it back and get one that works right. If the battery is several years old it might be time for a new one.

If I understand the vex. instructions correctly, the battery is fully charged when the charger led light comes on.

If I use the flasher for any length of time I leave the charger on all night. I have a battery that is 3 years old and the little trickle chargers that come with the battery has never hurt any of my batteries. I have left the charger on for 2 or 3 days with no ill effects that I have noticed.

    • Going off your description I think you’ll be fine leaving a small dock in over the winter.  Anything that would happen shouldn’t be a major disaster.  Keep the deck above the water line.
    • I'm no bird expert, but I'd like to think one of those big neon signs that lights up orange with "OPEN" on it, would help!!
    • Swap the wild bird seed for sunflower chips. Goldfinches love it!
    • Probably 10-15 years. At least.
    • At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town.  LOL.    Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo.    How long has this arrangement been in place?  I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.  
    • Another summer with few birds. Anybody see any problems with this feeder assortment? I have 1 or 2 Oriole pairs when I had dozens last year. I have a couple catbirds. I have nuthatches galore like everyone. Purple finches are still around. Also have cardinals like last year. I did have 1 Indigo Bunting but no neat/unusual visitor birds even passing thru. More red-wing black birds than before. No hummers. No goldfinches. No grosbeaks.  I've read house sparrows chase things away and I do have a quite a few but not infested by any means. Lots of blue Jays. Very few of the assorted bigger blackbirds. Haven't seen a cat prowling around hardly all year either. Feeders are kept well stocked (safflower,thistle, premium wild bird seed, black sunflower, grape jelly, & hummer juice) and clean with fresh seed but none of my favorite birds I mentioned. That PVC pole hasn't had a squirrel figure it out for at least 2 years and the couple that did aren't talking. Is this too much too close together? Any suggestions?
    • Dang...  I just passed through Ely on Sunday and glanced at the store, thinking about him.  Quite the character.  No more rides in the Pope Mobile. 🙁   Rest in Peace Sir Maki.   Thanks for posting @leech~~
    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
