SOURCE: Just purchased Blackberry Playbook. Set

Sounds like a bad install on the new operating system. Since your question was posted in April, I'm assuming you have the problem solved by now, or returned the device, but for anyone else looking at this, I suggest either returning the device and exchanging it, or if you prefer to solve it with this device, then leave it on and let the battery run down. Once it is dead, try plugging the device in and powering it on, hopefully that gets you back in business. Blackberry Tech Support is also helpful, their phone number for your country should be on their website.

Why is my power not holding a charge?

Batteries can become corroded over time, and can short-out internally. Sometimes a slight over-charge can rectify the problem, but chances are that it has had too many charge-cycles and it depleted for good.

I was able to keep my phone battery in good condition for over 2 years by topping it up at every opportunity. Batteries degrade mostly due to the degree of deep discharge-recharge over time, and less from the number of shallow recharge cycles.

Why will my ellipsis 7 no longer hold a charge ?

All rechargeable batteries will eventually fail to take and/or hold a charge. In some cases it is due to being worn out, in others it is due to what is called "battery memory". Battery Memory occurs when a battery is charged often, but is not allowed to fully discharge between chargings. It was really bad with the old Ni-Cad type batteries, but all batteries can have some affects.

I am having with e-mail only. However it doesn't hold a battery charge as long as it did either.

Rechargeable batteries have a finite lifetime. As they age, they slowly wear out and it is normal for them to not hold a charge as long as they used to. If it gets so the battery is only lasting an hour or two, having a new battery installed is probably your only viable option. Five years is probably old enough so that battery will not be near as long-lasting as it was when new.

Insignia tablet will not fully charge

With new devices, you have to go through at least 3 charge, discharge cycles, before you can see how long the battery will last. And then not all batteries are the same. Nit all users are the same. Some have to replace a battery after half a year, some can last as long as 10 years. When you have an older device, and the charge is not enough anymore, think of replacing the battery (or let it replace). You also could check what apps are all running in the background and kill off some of them. Use a system app (most are free) to check what is running for you. Better switch of GPS when you are inside, because it does add nothing and drains lots and lots of power.

How to prolong my battery life.

I find that if you don't just charge up when the unit is half full and wait till it is Drained completely and then charge the battery tends to last longer. This is especially the case for your very first charge on any rechargeable Battery.

When will my Kindle Paperwhite need a new battery and can i purchase a new battery

I've had a paperwhite for 2 years without any problems. As soon as the low battery comes on I plug it in to recharge. Don't plug it in for just a few minutes, anytime you think it's getting low. Best thing is to charge any of todays electronics is to fully charge it and wait until it says low battery to recharge. Then charge it fully and continue the same way. Batteries last longer that way. As to where to get it and how to replace. Check Kindle user info or contact the help desk.

I have a nextbook 7 or 8 tablet. it no longer charges in any way, and it gets extremely warm when connected to a charger no mattet how short a time it is plugged in for.

Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

How long will an I Pad battery last

It should last 3 to 5 years, if you keep using it until it has less than 10% power remaining, and then recharge it to 50% to 75%.

If you keep it always connected to the recharger, the battery gets "lazy", and won't hold a charge when you need to use it on battery-power.

Samsung battery wont charge need to reset it

If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
