Charging the LiteHawk ROWDY:
Your new Litehawk comes with a rechargable 4.8V 700 mAh NimH battery and has a 15 to 20 minute run time. Always have your toy turned off when not in use. You should fully charge your new battery before and after using. Let the battery cool off for 10 minutes before recharging or damage may result.
First, plug your USB charger into a power supply adaptor port. The LED light will be Red without the battery plugged into it.
Now attach the battery to the USB charger, and the LED light will start blinking a Red light, indicating charging.
When the LED light on the USB charger turns off, the battery is fully charged. Charging takes about 4 hrs from a depleted state. Maybe 2.5 hrs for the very first charge out of the box.
Unplug the battery from the charger, and if you are ready to play, install into your toy. If storing, remember that all rechargeable batteries degrade over time, and need maintenance charges if left for a long storage period. Every other month or so will usually keep the battery in good working order.
Installing the Battery into the LiteHawk ROWDY:
Until you are ready to play, always keep the ROWDY turned off.
The battery compartment is located on the White side of the ROWDY, and is opened with a Philips screw driver. You may have to open the clip that holds the door closed and apply a little upward pressure while you turn the screw driver to release the screw completely and free up the door. You will need to do this again as you replace the door. Apply pressure downwards while turning the screw in until it starts properly, then fully secure the door. With the door off, install the battery and carefully hook it up, then carefully close the battery door. It is a snug fit.
