So I just got mine. The instruction manual says that when charging the charger pulses red. Mine only did that for a couple minutes. Does that mean it is fully charged? Also the cobra libre device is still pulsing white.

If I remember correctly, the light disappears when it is fully charged. However, be sure that the magnetic charger is fully in contact with the toy. It becomes dislodged easily. Unfortunately, Fun Factory didn't design the position of the charger very well. The location of the cord combined with the port being so low causes the plug to displace easily. I have to prop the rear of the toy up so that the charger stays in proper position.

thanks for replying.

on my instructions it says it (charger) pulses when it is charging and when it is done it glows steadily red.

I haven't used mine in awhile, so I could certainly be wrong. However, the position of the charger has been a problem for most. My guess is that it is not on properly, thus why the light is going off. Try propping it up and see if that makes a difference. My recollection is that the first time took several hours to fully charge. I think the instructions said 12 hours, which was longer than my experience, but it did still take several hours (maybe 6?). Sorry, my memory isn't great on the specifics and it's been a year since I reviewed it.

I can check mine and reply later.

Ours glows red when it's charging and shuts off when it's done, but like Kindred said, sometimes it will go off before it's done if the charger disk gets moved.

I believe the 12 hour charge might make it last longer, but we've never charged ours that long.

I charged mine last night and the light on the toy goes off when it's done. I hadn't used mine in a few weeks/months, but it still took a few hours to fully charge. My guess is your charger is not staying in contact long enough.

My charger has been acting up lately and the light never seems to go off. I don't want to get stuck with it dying at the most inopportune time!

I just receive mine Cobra, so happy with it, but i also got confused with charging. mine charger is still red and cobra is blinking. first time i left it charge over night, then i use it till it dye and now i charge it again, but no blinking red light on the charger at all. So, maybe it is an issue with charger, it's uk version.

One of my chargers never blinked at all but it worked. Also, you have to constantly keep checking to to make sure it stays in place. =/

I've had my Cobra Libre device for a week and a half, and I've watched it charge pretty carefully each time it's been charged. Mine *does NOT* "Pulse" when charing, but the "Fun" part of 'Fun Factory', that is the upper word is on very, very bright while it charges fully.

As for full use, man if you can use it "until it died" as one poster wrote, either it's not getting charged fully or you are Mr. SuperDick! Can't imagine doing that with mine because it has never run out of power yet... And I mean major long session with the device, ie 1-2 hours or more straight time with it on its upper register settings. I do let mine charge as long as 18 hours however, and it takes all that time, at times, to completely saturate-charge the thing, don't ask me why.

Li-Ion batteries do not have "memory effect", so it shouldn't matter if you use it all up or just part of the charge is used up before you recharge it--it should charge successfully no matter what, the only variable being time itself to full charge.

About all this trouble many of you are having with keeping the thing connected, ie charge cord catch to Cobra Libre, I do NOT understand the problem as I have none of that! I simply place the Cobra Libre on the **EDGE** of my nightstand, or a rack of magazines (stacked about 2.5-feet high)nearby, and drape the charging cord so that it goes *straight down* for at least 1-foot of its length. This seems to keep the charging cord in proper orientation to where it never, ever comes displaced from the charging port's magnetic field and fix. I have never once had this problem of keeping the charger cord's magnetic catch aligned and affixed to the device, not once, and if you'd follow my lead I think you'll be successful also, and have no more hassles with the charging cord!!

The benefit to their charging system is the same as with my MacBook Pro laptop's charge cord connector to laptop port: if you trip or otherwise violently or very hard, knock the cord **OFF** the MBPro, it simply dislodges and doesn't break the end off the charging cord's attachment plug...a brilliant design, typical of Apple products. Looks like the nice Germans who are building this device took a lesson from the experts in the field of charge cords and connectors and designed the Cobra Libre's to mimic the Apple-design, and for me it works great!

You can rest assured that if you have an accident and trip over the Libre's charging cord that you will NOT damage the cable or the port connection, 99.99% sure of that. So look at the positive side of this whole subject, as the charge cord design is a winner, just like the device does what it's designed to do fantastically also!

Good luck to all who are using this trending device, because they are selling a ton a day it seems. Someone should write up a "how to" article on the Cobra Libre 'turbator device and explain many of the problems away. Problems like the charging cord issue that is so easily solved by placing the device on the literal edge of a table, night-stand, rack of books or magazines, and simply drooping the charging cord straight down at least 1-foot so that the cord's catch has no chance or reason to become dislodged from the Libre's magnetic charging port.
