It should switch off.

Note that it can take a while for first charge to complete.

If the battery is fully charged and you are unplugged, it will light up when plugged back in, but then turn off shortly thereafter.

Is it doing this while the robot is turned off? So power off plus a few hours charge time and the LED is still turned on?

Hi,

Charged switched off,charging Led did go off. Have always charged it switched on before thinking Arduino needed to be running to track battery charge.

Thanks for the response and help.
