Why does my Reveal FirePRO X not appear to be charging while plugged in?
Under rare circumstances, the Reveal FirePRO X charging logic may not recognize being plugged in and charging will not commence. If this occurs, please wait 30 seconds and then reconnect the USB charge cable; the device should wake up and commence charging normally.
Make sure that the plug of the magnetic cable connector is properly seated in the magnetic charge receptacle of the Reveal FirePRO X; under some circumstances, the magnetic charge cable might be at a slight angle, not allowing the charge pins to make proper contact. If you notice this, try disconnecting and reconnecting the cable. You may also try making sure that both the charge receptacle of the Reveal FirePRO X and the corresponding cable connector are free of debris that may have built up during heavy use is dirty environments. Use a cotton swab or cloth damped with alcohol or water to aid cleaning.
Look for a charging indicator in the lower right of the display when the device is powered on to ensure a proper connection with the charging cable connected to a power source. If the device is powered off and connected to a power source, a quick press and release of the center button should briefly display a charging indicator on the LCD if the cable is connected properly and the device is charging.
Can I mount/attach or wear a FirePRO X?
Yes. All Reveal devices have been designed to be easily attached or connected to standard utility belts and clothing. When installing a D-Ring to your Reveal, do not over tighten the screws. We recommend using a small screwdriver to "finger tightness," not to exceed 4 in-lbs. Additionally, we recommend using a dab of Loctite 222 on the installation screws, being careful not to allow excess to contact the plastic housing.
