Default Can you charge the glow driver battery while connected?

Hello I have a 1s battery connected to my microsens glow driver. Tha battery powers the glow driver via a deans connector but the battery has a futaba second connector. Is it possible to charge the battery by the futaba plug without diaconnectong it from the glow driver or I will fry something?

Usually chargers put out a higher voltage than the rated voltage of the battery. I'd be concerned about it frying your plug, just as if you turned the knob on your field box panel up too high. But certainly you have a way of turning off the current to the plug.

BTW, with all the asinine want ads showing up as threads you night want to change your title so it doesn't look like it might be something for sale. I took a chance on it being a thread and was right but others might not.

When I charge the battery the glow plug would be off because it only turns on if the receiver is on and you move fast the throttle channel from 0 to 100% so the glow plug driver wouldnt be on.

Charging the battery as you ask is fine.
