I just had the same problem. Could be dirty terminals. I took the battery out, cleaned the terminals on the battery and phone with a pencil eraser, put the battery back in and it's working fine. (Says fully charged, where just a few minutes ago it said low battery).

You may need a new battery.
You can get Sidekick Batteries on ebay for about 10 dollars.

Follow the procedure below to recalibrate the battery meter when you get it.
Try this to recalibrate the battery meter if you get a new one. This trick really only works within the first week of use. If you've used the device for 2 months already, this won't help as much (but it'll still help). Keep in mind, when I say "train the battery," I mean RECALIBRATING THE BATTERY METER:
A) I cannot stress enough that the initial charge out the box is crucial. Instructions state you should charge the device 6-8 hours upon initial start up. Most people are so geeked by getting the device that they yank it off the charger 3-4 hours later so they can go out and floss their sidekick. HUGE mistake. Despite evey urge to do so, let it charge at least 6 hours out the box.
B) Now, for the next couple of days try and let your device totally drain out it's battery before you charge it again. I've had a couple nights where I come back from work with the device already dead (Sucks for my commute, but well worth it in the long run). When you finally do plug it in, make sure it charges 4-5 hours minimum before you remove it. I usually leave them plugged in overnight...
C) You'll begin to notice an improvement in your battery life. Your device now has new "baselines" for when it's full and when it's not. Keep it up for another day or so (but don't waste an entire week doing it) and then you're set. Sometimes I would bypass the old automatic cutoff for charging by charging it while off just to make sure I "topped it off" (NOT reccomended for consistent charging, tho').

Hello batterbum, from the info you listed you have the right battiers & charger, with alkaline the radios work leads to wrong or a bad batch of Ni-MH battiers. Vibrations from a battery pack states too much current being drawn for battery capacity. Note: depleting a battery and recharging with a charger will place the battery in a false full charge state. Recharging a depleted battery with a DC power supply with current limit can reboot the battery to a 90% cycle. I suggest returning battiers for correct replacements, if they are correct 'by the book' ask for the highest in mAhr specs. Please inform me of your outcome. Good Luck

The above posting is correct, and the cell is a CR2016. The main batteries are removed by unscrewing the battery holder on the right grip. Most Maxxum 7000's have AAA's, some have AA's, and if you have the lithium holder, it uses a 2CR5, available at the photo shops / pharmacies.
