    Should range extender be on or off when you charge or does it matter? Also should you charge using computer or can you use a sub adapter and wall outlet?

    I charge mine with it off. I use an AC USB adapter/charger. You should see the light on the extender come on indicating it's charging.

    I have done that with mine during flying season. Unplug over night and later the next day, plug it in and it can take another 30-40 minutes to finish. Maybe a weak battery?

    Don't very often charge from PC. Too many times the PC wants to "talk" to what ever you plug in.
