Re: When should I replace my backup battery?

The back up battery should be replaced immediately upon seeing the message "Backup Battery Very Low - Your back up battery is very low or missing. Data loss may result from failure to replace the battery very soon. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for directions on replacing or charging the backup battery." Warning: It is important to note that the back up battery in the MobilePro 900 is not rechargeable, thus, to prevent data loss, it is important to change the back up battery immediately when this message is displayed.

How do I prevent loosing data when my battery discharges


Hi. Actually, on pocket pcs there's a backup battery onboard, but in your case maybe backup battery is dead. So you can have that changed or you can charge your PDA on regular basis. Hope this helps.

Backup battery is not charging not visible.backup battery none


hi thanks for using fixya!

I recommed that you bring your Imate PDA to a service technician to check further the error. It is not a good sign, especially if there is a problem with the back up battery.

Regards!

Low Battery DATA Lose - HP iPAQ Model h5450 Packet PC


The h5450 comes with what HP calls a backup battery. It is built into the device and not accessible by the user. However, the backup battery has only enough juice to power the Pocket PC for a few minutes while you change main batteries. Don't expect it to keep your RAM data alive if the main battery runs out.

"Backup Battery Very Low"


NEC has identified an issue where the system can erroneously generate the "Backup Battery Very Low" message. There are two possible solutions that will eliminate this erroneous low battery warning message (the first method is the preferred solution, the second method can be used if the update file is not available). Solution I. Install a new version of the driver that controls the battery monitoring circuit. 1. Download the Low battery warning fix to your desktop. 2. Using ActiveSync or a compact Flash Card, copy FixBatt_HPC2K.EXE to the MobilePro internal disk. 3. On the MobilePro, double click the FixBatt_HPC2K icon. 4. When the message "Low Backup Battery Issue" is displayed, tap the "Patch it" button 5. When prompted turn unit over and momentarily depress the Reset button using the stylus. Solution II. Change the default power management configuration. Configure your MobilePro 900 to suspend when the LCD lid is closed on battery power and AC power. To ensure that the device suspends whenever the lid is closed, please make the following changes and perform a soft reset: 1. Go to Control Panel. 2. Open MobilePro Settings. 3. Go to the LCD Suspend/Resume tab. 4. Place a check next to "Enable suspend while on External Power." 5. Click the "Advanced" button and place a check next to "Enable suspend while on External power. 6. Click OK to close the Advanced Setting window and click OK to close the MobilePro Settings. 7. Turn unit over and momentarily depress the Reset button using the stylus. NOTE: Both the software update and power management settings are cleared on a hard reset and must be re-applied.

Loss of data when battery goes dead?


-are all pda's this way? All PocketPCs are this way. I don't own a P**m so I can't speak to them. -When the main battery depletes to the point where the unit shuts off how long do you have before data is lost? Until the backup battery dies. -Is the backup battery just used when changing main batteries or does it take over when the main battery goes dead? If so how long do you have before it is dead? I've never had it happen, so I cannot say how long, but if you continue to try to use the PDA on the backup battery it won't be long (minutes) if it even lets you do that. The backup is there to bridge over battery changes and to act as a safety net if you run the main batteries totally flat. -does the backup battery recharge or does it have to be replaced? Replace. -with a fully charged unit how long can it be left off before data is lost? Depends on the machine. Most of us leave the thing in the charger overnight every night, so this issue doesn't come up. You could try an experiment for 1, 2, 3 days, looking each day at the battery remaining and work up an estimate. I would expect maybe a week or more. Remember, even "off" the machine is still drawing power to maintain the RAM memory.
