    So I plugged it in for the first time and laid the charger on my drive way

    Unexpectedly someone was about to back c car over my charger

    I unplugged it really fast to move it in time (from an extension cord)

    There was a spark and when I plugged it back in the charging time went up from where it was before

    Didn't see any lights on the dash

    Really really freaked out by this

    i think it's fine. you really can't damage it, unless you run it over. nice save :cool:

    I figured it was probably all right

    Any idea of why it says 6 hrs rather than 5.5 or why the charge time jumped after?

    Also thanks for the quick response man you were right in that lol

    it probably reset the computer when you unplugged. it has to reread the charge, and then adjust the time. it isn't instantaneous.
    see what it says next time you need a full charge.
