When you open the case and your glasses are charging inside, the LED will show the charge level of your glasses. Red means the case is out of battery or your glasses are not charging, green means that your glasses are fully charged, and pulsing orange means your glasses are charging. If your case is plugged in, the LED will remain on. If your case is not plugged in, the LED indicator will show charge level for 8 seconds.
