    zapiao,

    it will probably come back to life, but be aware that with every full discharge cycle, you decrease the life-span of the solar battery drastically. there is a good reason why casio always recommends in their manuls to expose a solar watch to a light source whenever possible. there is a good reason for the "power save" function, the (usually) shorter backlight durations, shorter alarms etc. the goal is to preserve power and therfore to protect the CTL battery.


    cheers

    Re: How much time in "CHRG"

    Of course i have, i am on vacations, and this is a test to all of us to see how much time can a batt (CHRG blinking) survive in complete darkness. Ps: today my Pulsar Kinetic 5M42 took a bath in boiled water and survived

    If you completely discharge the cell, don't be surprised if it collapses and will not recharge. The worst thing you can do to any lithium based cell it to deep discharge it, or far worse completely deplete the cell.

    The key to longevity with this technology is to keep the cell fully charged, this way it will last for many years without issue, and may literally last decades. Best thing is to leave solar`s exposed to indirect light and normal wear, and they will remain fully charged; no spot lamps, no windows, this way they wont overheat which can also degrade the cell...

    By the away, if the batt fully depletes it will be necessary to short A/C ? Like we must do to reset the watch when we change the batt?

    Yes, if the watch shuts off completely due to low voltage, it`s the same as removing the cell, you will need to perform A/C
