Re: Openspot3 turns off

The led power light is flashing yellow this morning. Web interface says its 80% and charging. What is interesting to me is that the webinterface does not state fast or slow charging, just "charging". Not sure where the Fast and SLow designation went!

The OS3 has been on for 37 hours.

Re: Openspot3 turns off

My OS3 was doing the same. If the Openspot is ON and the charge is slow, it will eventually turn off. I think the RFShark guru confirmed earlier in this thread or another that the SLOW charge cannot charge the battery and run the radio consistently. Mine would run for about 8 hours and die. I found ...

Re: Network - tethering via cable or bluetooth?

Great suggestion as I share your iPhone Hotspot frustrations outside of the OpenSpot connectivity. I like the iPhone but its hotspot implementation leave a lot to be desired.

Bluetooth might be a good option.

Led was flashing green and sometimes red for tx of connected reflector. It seemed to be connecting to reflector but just not allow...

Re: Openspot3 turns off

In the interface, does it say slow or fast charging?

When you plug in the charge cable, does the power led flash 1 or 2 times to indicate fast or slow charge?

OS3 - Battery Histogram

It would be nice to see a battery histograph showing current and past charge history. I know, abit ADD but still a cool feature.

Re: Openspot3 turns off

If folk are instructed to call support, I am sure everyone would appreciate the progress and results being posted in the forums too. Looks like my new OS3 has been up for 18 hours based on a ping trace. Unfortunately, its not opening the web interface by IP or sharkrf.link so I currently cannot chec...

Re: Battery - Long Life Mode?

What behavior will the Long Life mode do in terms of charging?

I assume it provides a partial charge and keeps the battery topped up to that charge? If so, what percentage of charge.

Thank you.

Battery - Long Life Mode?

What is the battery long life mode and exactly what does it do in terms of battery health? I don't see this in the manual when I searched.

Status Display instead of LED States

Just an ideas and I can see negatives to it but I wanted to throw out the idea anyways. How about including a display to displays states and connection info? Maybe something like the OS1 with hardware like the OS3 but Ethernet and OLED display. For static or base use at a location for power usage an...
