Need help with Cool Fire 4
So i just got a new Cool fire 4 off Amazon, came today and i started charging it, the red led was on obviously so i check back 4 hours later and still nothing the red led is still on, okay so i though maybe give it another hour, and no its still the red one hasn't even changed to orange. 

I am charging with the main switch set to "Off" because when i try to do it on "On" its stays on green but not much happens.

RE: Need help with Cool Fire 4
Hi and welcome Matiik16!

Not so sure on the details of that mod. But it may take a very long time to charge up on a 500mA charger. 4 hours at 500mA is 2000mAh at best - probably half that. At least 8 hours may be needed for an initial charge...

I don't know how long it takes to charge - this is just an estimate from other mods. Just let it charge till the lights go green.

If it is too slow - get another charger. They aren't expensive.

RE: Need help with Cool Fire 4
When my coolfire arrived it was fully charged as are most integrated mods. Have you tried using it as it is. Will it fire up.

RE: Need help with Cool Fire 4
Try hitting it 5 times quickly.

The charger should be a 5v 1a, less and it will take ages to charge, if at all.
There is a pass through function, see if it'll fire while on charge. I don't recommend using it while charging normally but for a test I'll let it slide.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

The charger I'm using is 9.0V  1.67A
I was charging it all night and it still at Red :/ 
Does it make a difference if the main switch is set to On/Off ? 
But even if I have it On its a green led, tried that for 4 hours and nothing changed.
If I unplug it from the charger then I don't even turn on or nothing.
And when I hold down the fire button the display just starts flashing and the LED lights keep changing from red to green

RE: Need help with Cool Fire 4
I would send it back - It should have been charged ready to use straight from the box - there is obviously something wrong. It is acting as if there was no atty on it.
