    How do i know if the range extender is charging? Should one of the lights come on when charging? It worked the first time i tried it but now no lights. Could it be the charger? Purchased my P2V used so don't know if this is normal. Guessing not.

    I have a P2V+ so I don't know if the extender you have is the same. With the extender turned off, a yellow light comes on when I plug mine into a USB port. The light turns green when fully charged.

    Thanks. This a purchase from a previous owner. Think it may be shot. Appreciate your response.

    What are you plugging the usb into ? Maybe your cord is shot or if you do like me and use a phone charger plug it might have gone out. Have
    had several that have .

    It was the charger. Cheaper than a new range extender. Thank you!

    The USB should work to charge the extender.
