What happens when you dis-connect the battery from the controller, tryin to charge the battery but its a red instead of white battery screen with a yellow exclamation mark ? should I disconnect it, or let it go its been this way for less than 2 mins ?

What I cant figure out is how the st16 battery went from a full charge before disconnect to 8% (hence the red battery display on the screen in charging mode), it just doesnt make any sence ? Heres what I got the battery display in chargeing went from red (with the yellow exclamation mark) to orange, or yellow, then the normal white ?

You can keep it fully charged it's a Lithium ion battery, you'll have to keep an eye on it to make sure it's not discharging dramatically, it maybe because something happened when you reassembled the controller?

Thanx, I thought that was really odd, Does the 16, and 16s use the same battery as I will buy each a spare ?

No different ones, the ST 16s is more expensive and slots in, not plug in
