Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
This is a replacement for an Axim that would hang up more and more frequently until it didn't work at all. This ones back up battery has gone bad more and more frequently until now the battery will go to 0% and not charge up in a week or two and I lost all my info. Is this a known issue and what would probably be the solution and cost. Or is this just a crappy model that is always going to have something wrong with it. Bob Thornton
The Dell Axim x5 does not recharge the backup battery, only the primary battery. The backup battery can be replaced and purchased at any Walmart store for about $5.

It is a knows issue for the backup battery not to take charge once they reache 0%. The backup battery is a pretty crappy NiCD cell. As the job it is supposed to do is pretty important I recomand to have it changed. For most PDA's this is a standard 3V battery. You should have your pda dissasembled and either have the battery manually charged (to see if the PDA can handle it later) or simply have it changed. This shouldn't be an expensive repair. For more info, feel free to reply. Good luck.

I tested this camera for a client. I didn’t have the light running for more than 15 minutes. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours before recharging. The LCD, however, had a few dead pixels - never saw this before. Tried returning for exchange and had to put up quite a fight. Anyone else seen this? http://www.batteryfast.co.uk
