SOURCE: battery does not hold charge new battery fitted

Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

SOURCE: 08 650 executive, new battery but charging system doesn't charge

Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.

SOURCE: battery keeps loosing charge- kymco cruiser 125, 2005

I had this exact same problem on a hipster 125, it was a faulty regulator module ( mounted under the seat) I also found a short circuit (somewhere) in the wiring loom between the regulator output and the chassis (probably what killed the regulator in the first place!) I cut and replaced the entire wire to save removing most of the loom and after testing reg to ensure it was dead i fitted a new one (about £60) bike charges and runs like a dream now even with fully lights approx 80% of the time. good luck

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Suzuki SV650.

The same thing happened to me (2002 sv650) and it turned out to be the voltage regulator. Check it.

SOURCE: My suzuki drz 400 seems to drain the battery and

check that all the wire connections are good, start at the 3 stator leads and follow it to the rectifier and to the battery, also if you have a multimeter, rev the bike up to 3000 revs and hook up the multimeter to the battery (positive to positive and neg - neg), this will give you the charging voltage, should be between 13-15 volts dc, if its not, it could be a bad stator, but is more likely to be the regulator rectifier unit

How do I fix a Kindle Fire whose battery runs low too often.


The only real ways are to 1)Install Android and keep it connected to the charging USB cable. You lose the original Amazon OS and the free Amazon Prime movies. or 2)Install a new battery, There are YouTube videos showing you how. I chose method ! and I'm having fun learning Android KitKat 4.4.2

Battery won't hold a full charge


batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)

Battery keeps draining already put in a brand new alletantor and brattery still draining and battery lights comes on and truck won't start


You would have checked the charging system before replacing the alternator, so I will assume the charging system is good.
If the battery is being discharged overnight or over a few days, you would need to disconnect it and check every circuit on the truck to find the drain.

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

Battery keeps going dead. Installed new Honda battery, checked charging rate while running, 14.5 volts and battery static voltage is 12.65. After sitting for one day, car won't start, lights but no sound,...


diode pack on the alternator is most likely suspect ,alternator will charge but drains to earth when not running ,pull the big terminal lead off and see if it goes flat overnight

Battery dies after a day or two of no use


Sounds like you have a power drain, have you installed any new electrical items recently, lift off your Neg batt connection, as you touch it back, is there a spark, if so,this shows a power drain somewhere. Does your battery go flat when car left to stand, or does it go flat regardless of if you run the engine?

well Marie the reason your vehicle is acting this way is because even though you put new battery in you still have to have a viable altenator to run the vehicle. the battery is only used to start the vehicle and run the radio and lights and other accessories. while the vehicle is running the altenator is not only suppose to charge the battery but it is suppose to supply the amprage to energize and coolapse the coil to give the vehicle spark. a bad altenator while driving doesn't charge the battery it drains it . a quick check is to have the vehicle running and then remove the positive battery cable if it dies you know it's the altenator.... please rate this and good luck keep me posted

Battery drains


I too have problem with camera on/off switch . Solved the problem by charging battery fully and installing only when I needed to take pix. Then removed it when not required. I found I could open battery cover and remove battery while camera was 'on' as an emergency measure, without apparent damage.
