Battery life

In order to keep your battery life from minimizing over time..only charge your battery when it is dying or dead, because when you charge it when its still green or on yellow ect. you are overcharging it..trust me.i learned this the hard way..an all i have to do was only charge when necessary.

*this also applies to ipods.

I got this camera last June and it's been dead since January. Every time i try to charge it, it will not respond to the charge.The battery is completely dead, but when the charger is plugged into either the wall or the computer, it will not charge at all. Is it the battery? Also, Ike th recently just ordered a new charger for my camera and the same result happened; the camera will not respond to the charge.


Hi, Sounds like the battery is toast. Batteries can stop charging any point in their life span. Usually I'd suggest just buying a new battery but because a battery shouldn't die like that within the first year I'd suggest contacting Nikon in your country and seeing what they'll do for you.

battery goes dead if not driven for a few days


That would happen because of two reasons 1.Your battery needs to be replaced and has lost its life. 2.The battery is known to die if not used for some time, keep charging it by running your vehicle more often.

What is the battery life expectancy for the 2006 Buick Lucerne?


Battery life is a very complicated issue, there are TONS of factors. High temperature kills batteries, if the fluid goes low, that kills batteries. If you forget and leave lights on, and the battery goes totally dead, (totally dead, zippo, not anything) that kills batteries.

Alternator diodes that fail kills batteries. So 4 to 8 years is typical life IN ABSENCE of the above types of issues. My favorite battery is Interstate. They just work really well. Costco has great battery prices, bumpy for service... Really Dislike Sears die easy.

walkie talkie batteries don't last


The Batteries that Motorola uses will die after a while mainly because people leave them on the charger all of the time. But there is a way to refresh them. You let the battery die completely, then you charge it up for about 12 hours. Then you let the battery die completely. Do this a couple of times and the batteries will last long.
Also, Motorola use to make a battery refresher (or did when I worked there.) It will charge and drain the battery automatically. It will even give you a fault if the battery is completely dead. For the HT1000 (for example) it would be the WPPN4065BR.
For future reference, don't constantly charge a battery. Only have it on the charger when the battery is actually dead or very low. This will increase battery life.

motorola razr battery problem


The only solution is to get a new battery. When you do, charge it completely when you first get it, then discharge it until it dies. This will maximize the life of the battery.
