Corrosion of Charging Plates?

Post by detectorman5050 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 4:49 pm

I was reading on another website somebody reporting that their charging plates have turned green and corroded?

Has this happened to anyone else out there?

I just checked mine, and they appear to be fine, so far!

have had to clean mine a number of times usually rubbing it with my finger tip seems enough to rub green off it seems to effect my charging when it is not clean enough the green light glows very dim until I get charge points cleaned up.
