Found an end in my misc. electrical stuff box that fit so I gave it a try. Mine was one of the first ones out so my instructions don't cover charging using anything other than the wall wart. First charge was 45 mah. Thought I might be seeing the same thing you were. Hooked a well used glo plug to it and forgot about it for 30 minutes. Took just over 1,000 mah hours to charge. If your engines are like mine and they fire off with a short press on the box I don't think we are taking more than 40 to 50 mah out to start 7 or 8 times on a race night. You have to remember that a LiPo doesnot self discharge likea NiCad or NiMH does.

Just received it today and it doesnt charge using a lipo charger with a glow adapter. The charger kept saying low voltage.

Can anyone give me whats the rating of the charger V and mAH? i have a feeling it'll be a $12 paper weight.

You can't charge it through a glow adapter as there is a device stepping the voltage down to 1.2v interfering with the charge. You need to use the wall wart or a LiPo charger with an adapter.
