The internal charger in the camcorder has sensors to prevent overcharging. Be sure to use an original JVC battery, as there is also a sensor in the battery to prevent overcharging and the inexpensive replacement batteries will not have the same sensor (some have NO sensor at all!)., In terms of keeping moisture out, avoid going from an extremely cold environment to a hot one, or vice versa as this can cause condensation to form in the camcorder. If you are taking the camcorder to a place where it might get wet, say the beach or out in the rain, place the camcorder in a ziploc bag to protect it. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Can't find float charger, can I just use a regular battery charger?

You can but keep track of charging time and unplug after use. Constant charging will damage battery. Float chargers use trickle type charging and are designed to keep battery topped off without overcharging. Got it?

Ndrive g800r battery charging

Li-ion battery packs in laptops have a circuit board that prevents overcharging. Unfortunately it also keeps count of the number of times the battery pack has been through a charge/discharge cycle and eventhough the batteries maybe still be good; IT keeps batteries from accepting a full charge and and that is why they will not keep a charge for as long as they did when new. Also if any battery in the pack goes bad it effects the whole pack because of the way they are assembled.

I have a very noisy fridgidare upright freezer causing snow on contents inside it?

Hi Lisa, thank you for your post! New freezers retain colder temperatures. Especially on hot humid days, moisture entering the freezer (when the door is opened) can form frost inside the appliance and moisture collection inside the unit. Reducing energy use to meet government requirements, defrost heaters have shorter run times. Light loads in the freezer also contribute to the problem.

Here are some tips to keep moisture low in the freezer:

Use your air conditioner to reduce humidity.

Arrange shelving and food items so air circulates.

Don't "overload" or leave the freezer empty. It should be at least half full.

Set the controls as recommended in the use and care guide. Manufacturers may suggest different settings for summer and winter.

Properly seal liquids and high moisture foods stored in the unit.

Open the freezer doors as few times as possible.

Clean condenser coils at least twice a year. Check your use and care manual for specific procedures. You'll save energy, too.

Cover pots and pans and use the range hood fan when cooking to reduce moisture in the kitchen.

Check and maintain door gaskets. A good door seal keeps warm moist air out of the freezer.

These tips will help control frost and moisture in your freezer, but won't always eliminate the problem, especially when humidity is excessive. If you have taken all necessary steps to prevent moisture and humidity, you may need to reach out to a professional for further diagnosis.

Hope this information helps resolve this issue.

I have some tips to keep your laptop battery live longer
1.don't undercharging and overcharging,laptops battery can reach 100 degress Fahrenheit and such heat can damage your battery. slowly but sure
2.ideally,you should try to keep your battery charged from 20 percent to 80 percent. i know it's inconvenient to unplug the charger before it reach 100 percent,but try to keep it charged near 80 percent
3.try to charge your battery constanly,and unplug it when you think its almost fully charged,overcharged can heat your battery and damage it
4.keep your laptop as cool as possible,don't try to charge the battery when the computer is turned on,even if the battery is going to 0 and you still need to use it,just shut down the laptop first and charge it,at least until the battery is charged 20%,unplug the charger and turn it on

It depends on the charger taht comes with this drill, the dumb charger will just keep on charging the batteries even when it if fully charge and does not sop, which will be bad for the batteries, the smart charger (more expensive and has electronics inside the charger) will go into floating charge when the batteries are fully charge which will prevent the batteries from being overcharged. If in doubt, remove it from the charger after overnight charging.

Hey what to do my phone battery not charging

I hope the battery is not old. If so then replace it. I also hope that you have not been keeping the battery most of the time as overcharging reduces the life of the battery and thus dead. Open the back cover and clean the battery terminals on the Battery and the cell phone as moisture or dirt can cause this. If all this does not help then you have to show it to one of the technicians.

Hearing aids keep shutting down. Batteries get wet.

First you should probably keep your hearing aid and battery away from water.I suggest taking it out while in the shower/bath and cover your head with a hood or umbrella while out on a rainy day.If battery keeps shutting down then replace the old battery with a new one.If problem keeps accorring then maybe its time to take your hearing aid into your local hearing aid repair and let them solve the whole issue with why it keeps shutting down

How often should the camera be charged

This is not a straight forward question, it would depend on how often you wisg to use it. It also depends on the type of batteries you have installed. Nic Cad, Polymer, NMH. Polymer don't need charging often because they have good holding power for months. The cadmium and NMH types need a regular charge, for instance at least a top up onjce a month to keep them live. If you dont use the camera much remove the batteries whjen in storage place them in a kliplock bag and place in freezer. This may be extremem but keeps the batteries alive for years.

Always before use fully charge the ewith an intelligent charger, one that stops when capacity is reached. This prevents damage from Overcharging.

hope this is helpful,
