The first time I read that you have to discharge your OP-1 for 18 hours and do a voodoo dance to get the thing to charge, I thought to myself WTF?!!! Did no one hold TE responsible at the time this first happened for defect in design? I mean, a properly designed LiPo battery management circuit is not difficult to implement, especially for a single cell.
WTF is what I thought to myself after reading what you just wrote lol
Call me crazy but I had to do no such thing, my OP-1 and OP-1F both were playable straight out the box, no charging issues, no voodoo dances.
back to bed
Woke up this morning went straight to bed.
