    Take it down to the waterfront or beach and let the Doctor from Rottnest Island blow on it as it charges in full Sunlight, while you RTFM.

    took me about 2-3 weeks to go from around 50-60% - which was what it came as new - to full.
    and this is basically in direct sunlight but filtered thru a window mesh...so it isnt that hot.

    As long as that? I was told few days Max! I was worried at first but I'll give it some time first. Glad I asked...

    If not, google the 4 digit number in the square on the back of watch, download the manual and read it carefully before the 12k.
    Thanks buddy I didn't even know you could! Does anyone know if these watches need or can be registered with casio for warranty issues if they arises?

    I saw one of the guys in my unit place his GW-9400 in a live fire area, approximately 10m from the point of impact using F1 fragmentation grenades, and it took no damage except a scuff on the bezel and some gravel rash on the crystal amazing toughness! I'll see if I can find the photo we took...

    Thanks! the thought had crossed my mind regarding damaging it! so as you said I might refrain from doing it again.
