English term or phrase: The indicator light turns green when the battery is fully charged.
I would like to know what is the most appropriate proposition for "turns green". I have received two kinds of translation from the native Spanish speaking people; one is "encender en color verde", the other is "encender de color verde".

si hay varios indicadores de distintos colores, también puedes traducir \"el indicador luminoso verde se enciende cuando...\"

La verdad es que casi mejor la segunda opción, porque \"ponerse verde\" en español puede tener un doble sentido ;-)

your phrase reads \"turns green\" that means \"cambia a verde\"
if your phrase would read \"ligths green\" then it should be \"enciende en verde\"
