BATTERY (Li Ion) NOT RECHARGING

Battery (Li Ion) is not recharging. Replaced with a brand new battery. Still no recharge. Batteries run machine when still charged. Machine runs fine on AC power. Must leave unplugged when not in use. Burned out an external power supply, as it was endlessly trying to charge the battery. With directions, diagrams, etc., and parts I am capable of working on the machine. (Journeyman Electronics Mechanic) Please advise.

My pendo wont fully charge, and now it won't come on at all


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.

Battery charging


Only the Li-Ion batteries designed to work with the radio can be charged inside the radio. If you have Li-Ion rechargeable batteries such as those you can buy along side the
Alkalines in a store, the answer is no. This type would need to be charged in the style of charger made for recharging this brand/type of battery

Camera keeps turning off


Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
