  1. That helps a lot. Now at least I know what I need to do... I'll let you know how it works out.
  2. I bought it through Ebay. I realize this isn't the ideal way to purchase something like this... anyway to clear up confusion about what I was trying to describe, here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...74046&rd=1&rd=1 I'll try charging it for 10 hours... since it does at least have short circuit protection. But it only has one light - red, to indicate power, but nothing to indicate charge complete. Sorry, I realize I'm a completely green novice... I'm just trying to have some fun adding a video cam to my helicopter and trying to use this battery to powe
  3. I forgot to mention that the tiny video monitor I am trying to power with this battery has the following rating: DC 8V 4.0W.
  4. I recently purchased a lithium ion battery with an AC adapter for charging. I purchased to power a tiny video monitor. I tried charging the battery for 1 hour, 3 hours, 4-5 hours respectively, but it doesn't seem to work.

I don't see any relevancy at all. In the future, you would be wise to answer questions for which you have an answer. If you want to make smart-ass commentaries, get a blog!
  7. I purchased a mini wireless color video camera to install on a radio-controlled helicopter. The camera is about as big as a quarter in size. I subsequently purchased a wide-angle lens to replace the lens on this camera. I unscrewed the original pinhole lens and, to my pleasant surprise, the threads on the wide-angle lens matched and it screwed on nicely. However, I discovered that in order to focus, I had to unscrew the wide-angle lens to the point where it hardly has any threads holding it on. Is there such a thing as a lens length extender? Or should I maybe just use some electical tape to s
