    Unhappy How do I re-charge my Frogman?

    I guess I am alittle slow on the uptake, but I had my TC Frogman in the drawer for a long period of time. Now it does not display the time, it flashes a small message "recharge".

    I left it out on the counter under a bright light for 3 hours, but nothing yet.

    Do I need sunlight?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Two days of direct sunlight will do the trick.

    Direct sunlight works best.

    Now I'm starting to hate solar watches, it's been raining and no sun for the past several days!

    you don't need necesarrily bright sunlight, even if its cloudy the light is still plenty bright, but of course it will longer to charge the watch. this is particulary the case with a frogman or any other model that uses the ML2016 battery.
    but once fully charged you don't have to worry about a few rainy days, weeks, month even.

    That's too much! I left 2 hour under direct sunlight; after that the LCD got all black and too hot.

    Manual says 5 minutes under direct sunlight will full charge the watch.

    Yeah, sorry to tell you man, but your Frogman is ruined. Go ahead and box it up and send it on over to me and I'll take that junk off your hands.

    my recharging system consist of a 1W/3W LED flashlight (rechargeable NiMH AA for guilt-free lumen), a piece of thick white paper and a rubber band

    (1) fold a paper cone and use the rubber band secure it on the business (LED) end of the flashlight
    (2) place the open end of the paper code close to the dial of the tough solar G-Shock/Casio
    (3) power up the flashlight and adjust the distant and diameter of the "device" so that most light are directed on the solar panel of the G-Shock/Casio
    (4) go watch TV or place video games for the rest of the night

    recharge and repeat as necessary

    or simply wear the watch out in the sun for a day and have some fun
