    GS-1100 out of battery

    Hello
    I need some advice. My Casio GS-1100 has been in the dark too long and have stopped totally.
    I put the watch under a lightbulb now for 5 hours and still no sign of life. Is there anything I can do?

    Doesn't sound promising, but I'd put it in daylight for a day.

    Sunlight brings life to Earth, it will resuscitate your watch too :P

    Göran,

    the lightbulb will only temporarily bring the solar battery back to life. if it was really completely drained, it is best to put the watch on a sunny south window (yeah I know, kind of hard these days) and leave it there at least for one week. the "good" news is, that your watch has an extreme low capacity solar battery (only 5.5mah) which should be fully charged in one week even with suboptimal light conditions. however, I recommend to let the watch sit on the window sill whenever you don't wear it.


    cheers

    I don't own any solar G-shocks yet but if there is no sunlight (overcast and grey clouds), will the sunlight during the day be enough or does it have to be better weather conditions for sunlight?

    well, bright sunny daylight obviously works best, but even cloudy weather is still a lot brighter (and therefore superior) than most artificial lightsources ( nuclear detonationes not included )

    Daylight (rather than sunlight) is fine.

    Yes, 5.5 milliamps is a very small battery.

    I have placed my new GS1300 for at least two hours in a south window near noon for just a week, and will continue this for this month of January.
