Q: I can’t see the red LED charging light when I plug in the Mito Meter into my computer but the instructions say there should be a red light?
A: Although going to the black plastic casing for the new Mito Meter was a brilliant idea in terms of aesthetics, you will not be able to see the red charging light in the black edition meters. Note you were barely able to see the charging light on the white Mito Meter unless you were in a dark room. The new instructions will reflect the change.
When you turn the Mito Meter on you will see the LED lights cycle from left to right indicating a successful boot followed by a right to left cycle indicating the meters battery level status.
Meanwhile, if you charge the Mito Meter for an hour from a flat battery status, it should give you a full charge that will run it for 8+ hours. (Up to 48 hours on LFM-X Powergrid monitoring Mode.)
If the battery is at 20 to 40% charge you can top the meter up for ten minutes or so before heading out to screen an environment. The battery should last you for years and can be easily replaced.
To charge the battery the meter can be left on or turned off.
The meter can’t be overcharged so you can leave the Mito Meter on charge overnight.
Just don’t leave on charge indefinitely as this can cause the battery to swell making the meter unusable.
If this does occur we can provide a replacement battery.
To charge the battery the meter can be left on, or turned off.
