bought one from an orange shop at the weekend for £9.99. It works fine in my car but doesn't work in my wife's car. I get the orange light for a few seconds before it goes green. This was from having only one bar in the battery symbol. So it obviously wasn't completely charged
Thanks guys for responding.
Can you tell me whther yours stays charging over say 20+ minutes whilst running tomtom 5.
I have bought 2 3rd party car chargers now and both have the same issue - namely after a short while of charging the orange LED light starts flashing - TomTom thinks its still charging and keeps the backlight on, but it is not and ofcourse runs the battery down.
I seem to sometimes have this same issue with the Mains charger when it is also running TomTom 5.0 and gets new 80-90% charge, it starts flashing Orange and stays that way rather than complete its charge and go Green as it should.
in short it sounds like there is some problem with its charging sensor - either in the phone or the battery itself.
