You should charge the battery (on the first charge) for 18-24 hours. They 'initializes' the ions in the battery.
A way to fix this if you didn't do this the first time is to drain the battery entirely and charge the battery on the WALL SOCKET for 24-48 hours.
Otherwise try a new charger or cable, if its none of these. Its the battery. If you are still in Warranty (1 year) or AppleCare (3 years), take it to any Genius Bar in any Apple Store

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last. I just bought new batteries in Feb/March this year...


You have to charge the batteries for nearly 8-10 hours. Brand new batteries also require a full recharge of 8-10 hours.Not only making sure the batteries are charged, have you changed the battery in the menu under type of batteries.

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700


There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

We got our grandson one of these last christmas and we lost the charger and I have found the charger now but, need directions how to charge it and where to plug it into? Please help with any...


Open the hood, and look for the battery. The battery has a blue connector that is connected to the Gator. You need to squeeze the plastic tabs on each side of the connector to separate them. The charger has a similar connector as the battery. Once you have the battery connector separated from the toy, plug the charger in to the wall and connect the charger to the battery by pushing the connectors together. Allow the battery to charge for about 18 hours for a full charge then remove the battery from the charger. The battery should be charged once a month to mantain the battery. People often forget to keep the battery charged once a month, otherwise the battery won't charge when the kiddies come to play. Hope this helps.

Rapid discharge usually is a sign of weak batteries, and they should be replaced if the charge indicates that they are full after charging for several hours, and then dissipate rapidly.

If your not getting a full charge indication after several hours, then you need to check the charger to make sure it is putting out about 28 Volts DC. If it is, then it is for sure the batt's.

The sweeping lights should not occur when the chair is off the charger. They sweep while on charge to tell you that it is charging and you can't move the chair. If they sweep while off the charger, turn off and restart and it should go. If not, call a tech. rep. for Quickie.

Not holding a charge


This is not a battery problem. Some IC on the board must have blown somehow or it is a factory defect.

See a mobile repairer or retailer for necessary checks.

Battery not holding a charge


Hi try this I had a new Blackberry which required charging every single day, take out battery and press and hold the on button on the phone for a min, then put battery back in and try charging again! mine is perfect now again.

Somebody told me that it's to do with static or something that builds up and flattens the batt.

Charger will not fit anymore


If you got a USB cable with the unit, you can connect to your PC and recharge the battery that way. Just be sure to have the power switch turned ON. The screen on the player will indicate its connected and you should see the battery indicator in the lower right corner showing a charging condition (bar moving)
