While the battery is being charged, the Ready/Park button pulses yellow; it changes to green once the battery has been fully charged.

With the winter hitting hard everywhere this year, we wanted to remind you that gita should not be left in temperatures below 40°F. This could result in the inability to charge your gita. It is a feature to protect the battery from freezing. The battery will not begin re-charging until it warms to a temperature of about 50°F.
If you keep your gita exposed to the outside cold for an extended period of time, bring it inside and let it warm up before charging. We recommend giving it 24 hrs at room temperature before attempting to charge.
