    Thanks!
    Without it being hooked up, can you still tell the difference?

    Not sure if it is 100% reliable....but.... my generation 1 Charger had a separate wall mount hanger for the cord and plug. Both of my generation 2 chargers have a place in the right side of the charger where the plug attaches when not plugged in.

    Correct. I was thinking UMC. Sorry about the confusion. I have a Gen 2 UMC permanently mounted on our wall.

    The Reset button is on the left on the Gen 2 and on the right on the Gen 1. Internally, of course, many differences (DIP vs Rotary configuration...).

    And as for 'glowing green', there is a moving green 'bar' when charging. Steady when connected and all is well.

    That's Gen 2, of course:
