Default Aurora 9 charger

Hi the charger that came with the set doesnt appear to charge the trans. the light wont come on at all. I have a flash 5 set and the charger that came with that has a different volt output. Can I use this charger with the aurora ? I am scared to try in case I cause damage to my new transmitter.Thanks Michael

1. There are two holes on back of Aurora, plug fits into both - check using correct socket on rear left
which has "Charge &(+ center)&(- Outer)" symbols above it.
2. No, do not attempt to charge the six cell NiMH battery with an eight cell charger (Plugs are also diffeerent suzes to prevent accidents)
3. Aurora 9 - Battery is not charged. Charge before first use so as not to damage battery.
Battery is 1300 mAh_charge rate is 80 mAh (to minimise damage if left on to long at any time) = 19-20 hours for first full charge - please read the further details.
4. Aurora 9 - 110/230 Vac charger Charge Plug/adaptor sizes.
[Red LED does not change to Green simply dims out but charge continues same rate].

Thanks A.T. for your reply, I just received an email back from the importer and was told that sometimes theres a faulty light but the unit is still charging. I am a bit anal about putting things in the wrong hole so I got that part right. Will charge overnight and see what happens. I wasnt to keen on removing the battery each time I charge otherwise I would use a quick charger. Thanks again the pope
