    Hi just bought a wcw big boy backpack secondhand.

    Couple of questions

    1. How long do they take to charge ?

    2. How do u know when its fully charged ?

    3. Flow rate seems high even on lowest speed is there any way of turning it down more ?

    1. Mine took all day to charge full.

    2. On the charger, there is a light, when it turns green it is fully charged.

    3.Flow rate is high........it drinks water faster than I can drink a Guinness :Image13: .
    Turn the speed down to low, then you'll have to adjust the tap on your hose to restrict the flow......but it's still thirsty.

    Just a tip depending on how new your big boy is the on/off switch may have two settings I and II. I makes use of the regulator setting, II overrides it and runs the pump at maximum.
