What happened?. I wrote quite some...grrrrr these forums.

Anyway. I have two transmitters, both using the latest FW.

If I leave either of them plugged in, even if they turn off after 4min they still discharge faster.

Anyone else notices that?

When the G10 transmitter is plugged in, such that the tiny microswitch at the base of the Transmitter's shaft is depressed, the G10 transmitter is activated for Four Minutes. If no audio signal is present for 4 minutes, the Transmitter will then go into Standby Mode weher it will remain for 200 hours if the battery is fully charged.

To prevent this from occurring, simply remove the G10 plug slightly from the jack so that the shaft's microswitch is not depressed. In this status, the lithium battery in the Transmitter will hold a charge for weeks! And, top charging the G10 Transmitter takes a mere few minutes if not used for weeks.

^Yup, that^

 

Just pull out the transmitter from the base about 1/4" when it is done charging, and it will be good for a couple of weeks.
