Java Java Objects (Retired) Harnessing the Power of Objects Incrementing

while loop

It should be pretty straight forward but apparently it isn't. Some additional hints or explanation would be super welcome!

GoKart.java
public class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_ENERGY_BARS = 8;
  private String mColor;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;
  }

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;
  }

  public boolean isBatteryEmpty() {
    return mBarsCount == 0; 
  }

  public boolean isFullyCharged() {
    return mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS;
  }
    public boolean charge() {
    mBarsCount = MAX_ENERGY_BARS;

      public boolean charge() {
boolean wasCharged = false;
if (!isFullyCharged()) {
mBarsCount++;
wasCharged = true;
}
return wasCharged;
}
while (charger.!isFullyCharged()) {
System.out.println("Charge!");
}
if (charger.isFullyCharged()) {
System.out.println("Is fully charged!");
}
  }
}

The only you need to do is a while loop in the charge method using the (!) isFullyCharged method then increment the mBarsCount

  public void charge() {
    while(!isFullyCharged()){
     mBarsCount++;
    }
  }

Thanks a lot!
