Default did i buy a faulty glo plug ignitor???

I bought a hangar 9 sure glow, glow plug ignitor. I has been charging since yesterday and the battery meter says it has no charge???

Cant try to start my car yet. I have everything but transmitter (getting m11 by the way) buggy, servos, engine, pipe, starter box and glow plug ignitor.

I have no way to test it. But shouldn't the meter still work???


Sorry bout all thease questions. I am still new to this and want to make sure i do it right.

glo plug igniter will have to charge prolly around 16hrs for the first time and to check a glo plug you have to FULLY insert it into the glo driver (pull the handle back, insert plug, release handle) don't leave the plug in there for more than a few second's cuz you could burn it up....

i have a glo driver with the same stupid meter, i feel like ripping the meter off so it fit's in my pocket better! a glo plug either work's or doesn't work, if you have a "bad" plug you will know just by how the car is driving or not driving lol
