I commonly use the analogy, laptop batteries are like flash light batteries, the more you use them the quicker they wear out. This is true, with the exception of that laptop batteries are considerably more complex, and have built in regulators and fail safes. What you have to keep in mind is that it is still a battery and they eventually wear out, so, when ever possible keep it plugged in, and you will get the most from your battery.

Good morning! I have a question about the BlackWeb portable battery 9000 mAh. It does not seem to be taking a charge.

Batteries do wear out and can die. Their longevity can be increased with proper care and charge/discharge cycles but no matter what, the chemicals will erode rendering the battery fubar. Needs replacement. After replacement I would read up on the characteristics of the specific type of battery (ni cad, nimh, lithium, lead acid, etc) and use the procedures best suited for max life for the battery. Example - ni cads like to be fully discharged for best charging, etc.

What to do if my phone stopped charging

1. try to see if your battery contacts are clean. remove the battery and rub the contacts with an abrasive cloth or metal nail file. then try it to see if it makes contact and will charge.
2. some times, even a fairly new battery will lose continuity inside. To see if this is the problem you need and inexpensive circuit tester set on continiuity check. If you check from one post to the other you should get continuity, even if the battery is uncharged. Also during this process, you can also set your testor to dc mvoltage and see if you can get a reading. If you get a reading, then your bATTERY IS OK and the contacts are dirty. The battery has been charging, your phone just was telling you it was not charging. If that doesn't work, you teckkie people might go a little further, as described later. This mnext step is not recommended unless you have already had your children, and lived a great life so far. (to be continued)

The Battery does not seem to charge so I want to remove it and see if it will charge if connected to an external charger. How do I remove the said batteries?

Remove the batteries .. Every Chair is different .. but if the batteries aren't charging it's probably that they were left uncharged for a time and they dropped down enough that the charger dosn't recognize them .. If they drop down below around 6 volts the charger won't charge them ... I have taken batteries out and charged them individualy with a car charger .. but they never come back .. at best half life.

The battery life for these lights are for about 2 years at the most if left uncharged. The best way to determine if you need new a new battery or batteries would be to dismantle the light, remove the batteries and check the voltage with a volt meter. If they are dead, you may be able to fine a suitable replacement at:

My battery dies very quickly

If your notebook unexpectedly goes into Sleep mode while you are using it but the battery charge is not low, you may need to recalibrate your battery. You should also recalibrate the battery periodically to maintain the accuracy of the battery gauge. Follow these steps to recalibrate the battery.

  1. Connect your notebook to AC power and let the battery charge completely.
  2. Disconnect the AC power and restart your notebook.
  3. Completely discharge the battery.
  4. After the battery is completely drained, reconnect your notebook to AC power.
  5. Charge the battery completely until the battery status indicator turns blue.

Laptop is not getting charged once it is switched on. where as when the laptop is off it is getting charged. Very much reduced baterry life.

I would start off by looking at the output voltage of the charger then pull out a volt/ohm meter and see if its actually putting out the correct voltage. If it is then u have a bad battery or DC jack in the laptop.

The baterry dies in 10 minutes.the motorcycle has only 6700km.should i change baterry?so soon?

Yes the battery can die in as little as 12 months if it is not used often, vibration and rough roads can also shorten battery life.
Check it has water in it up to the lines.
Put a multimeter across the battery should be just over 12v with engine stopped, rise to 13-14v with engine running to check charging circuit. Riding when the battery completely dies can overload the charging circuit.
