Once again, yesterday, we ran into problems with the winch phone battery. The battery was showing a full charge however, within a very short time the phone went dead with a depleted battery. The phone was plugged in and the winch master switch was on so the phone should have been receiving a trickle charge. We had to swap the winch and launch director phones so that we could charge the winch phone on the launch directors big battery. This delayed winch launching about 30 minutes.
I suggest that we get new batteries for the phones and also look into the charge rate of the winch phone.
