First questino here did you fully discharge the battery before you charged it the first time. Secondly even then it should not only last 20 mins. That being the case i would suggest you claim warranty for it. Thirdly the blue light should come on and i would suggest you take teh unit in under warranty and have them check it as you should not be having these problems. Im assuming the unit is still fairly new.

I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.

Hi,
For better battery performance, perform the following tasks,
1. Switch off the bluetooth. If needed put into hidden mode.
2. Switch off the wifi netword scanning (if applicable)
3. Reduce the screen brightness.
4.While keeping in pocket, take care to ensure that the mobile screen not at all touched or pushed inside pocket even though the screen is locked.
5. Charge th emobile phone for continuous 5 hours and dont charge until fully discharged. Follow this for atleast 5 times.
Then you can see the improvement in batery backup time.
I hope this is helpful to you

Delll axim x30 screen remains dimmed even though fully charged


ok , you have checked the brightness settings, check battery power settings as well. you may have to do a hard reset so back up your info. If doing a hard reset, pull the battery and charge it on its own if you have a cradle. Hope this works for you

Charging indicator stays red


Hmmm...is the USB cable plugged in to a powered PC? Could be cable or battery issue. Red light means that the battery is very low on juice. Return it to where you got it from if you can't solve it on your own.
you want a repair service

Palm Charging


Synchronize your E2, then work on draining the battery all the way down in order to reduce the effect of battery memory. Memory happens when we repeatedly partially charge a battery. Over time the battery will forget how to keep a full charge, but will remember how to be partially charged. That's usually when users realize there's a problem. The first step is to drain the battery and FULLY charge it at least fully on the battery's indicator, but if you can, let it sit for 24hrs. The second step is to try to use the battery more before charging it and let it charge fully (ie-overnight) before using it when you need to charge it.

Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Battery won t charge or operate phone Problem - T-Mobile MDA Compact Smartphone


Okay, I searched and searched until I found a solution that worked for me. I tried the USB thing, I got my phone to turn on once, but never to charge. Here's what I did:

(Do this at your own risk)
I zapped my battery with a 9v battery. One wire on each terminal and then held it to the MDA battery (positive to positive, negative to negative) for about three seconds. I did this about five times. (Don't let the wires touch while they are connected to the 9v battery.) I IMMEDIATELY plugged my phone into a wall charger, NOT my computer (The computer wouldn't charge my phone). As soon as it was connected to the wall charger, I turned it on. After starting up, the orange light came on, and it started charging. I was skeptical about this solution at first, but trying everything else I resolved to do this and then if it didn't work buy a new battery, but it worked and my MDA is charging as I'm typing. The original ideal came from a post on the xda-developers website by dew1989. I added the additional steps that got my battery charging again. I hope this helps!

Battery Charge - First Use


My experience was similar to yours. The LED turned green after about only 2 hours. Because I didn't want to stay up until midnight to start playing with my Axim, I took it out of the cradle after the 2 hours and everything was fine. Besides, having downloaded and read the user's guide 2 days before receving my Axim, I knew that a green LED meant it was ready to go. 3 days later, everything is still fine and seems normal. A year ago, I received a Palm with similar initial charging requirements, and it also didn't take as long as the directions said it would.
