I had charged everything up the Saturday before but noticed that the coil battery indicator on the remote was showing very little charge & was flashing sometimes as well, spoke to one of our club members who said that maybe it did not charge correctly & to try charging it on its own. I did that Sunday evening & when I checked the battery indicator was showing solid bar on the remote for the coil 2/3 of the way across the coil, I left it for another hour & it did not go any higher so assumed this was as far as it went. I went out today for 3 hours, the bar was the same as it was on Sunday after charging so went on my way, after a couple of hours the battery was half gone according to the bar on the remote for the coil is this right ? if I stayed out all day I am worried that the battery is not going to last. I have the receipt for the detector & I think if I remember reading correctly that the warranty is transferable. I know very little about the Deus so hope someone can advise if its ok or not

I had a similar problem after buying a new 11" coil. I spoke to Nigel at Regtons and he told me that the Software version of the coil may not match the version of the controller? After re installing , everything was good and the charge status was as it should be. Might be worth trying??
I guess I have to go to the XP site & try & find a download for version 3.2. I had a quick peek but only saw version 4. Is it just a matter of plugging my Deus into my pc finding the version & then clicking to action it.
I did that but still shows flat after 3 hours with coil logo flashing on remote as it cycles.
It's all been said before - design of Deus charger clip is daft - OK we clean the contacts, don't wiggle the clip around, etc. but why should we have to do that? If I want to charge my phone, I plug it in - simple. Come on Deus - come up with a more practical plug-in charging system and reliable charge indication.
