  1. Hi all. I joined this group a couple of weeks ago, but haven't been able to find an answer in the forum about charging my Seiko Astron 7X52, during our dark ... and often sunless UK winter. If there is and answer in the forum to my following question, then forgive me that I couldn't find it. I somehow managed to 'put away' my Seiko Astron in a drawer some 18 months ago and forgot about it until 3 weeks ago. After checking it over and finding no charge (not surprisingly), I placed it on a front windowsill, facing the sun (of which there hasn't been a great deal where I live) in the morning and moving it to the back of the house in the afternoon to recharge it. It took 5 days before the watch was ticking along nicely and I was able to set to the correct time. The question I would like to get an answer to, (apart from not hiding it away in a dark place again for so long) is, are there recommended LED light chargers to boost the Astron's energy storage, to get it going again, more quickly if the same happens again .... or just as a top up during the winter. Or is it not recommended at all to use such a device. I have seen several on websites, but would value opinions on this subject, from those, far more knowledgeable than me . Regards ... Steve s21
  2. Hi all. Thank you richy176 for you suggestion ... I will re-post in the general section at the weekend, under a less specific heading. My Astron looks very similar to yours Also, thank you to nursegladys. I have seen led lights meant for specifically charging solar powered watches, but I like your suggestion of checking the lux outputs of various led lamps, as this may be a cheaper alternative and would be potentially useful elsewhere. Steve.
