That completely depends on the battery, my normal battery charging routine on new laptops is i allow the laptop to completely die and then i charge for 24 hours and then let completely die without charging and then charge for 24 hours. repeat this 4 or 5 times. This should give you the best battery life.

Charge time is normally a few hours for laptops tho.

for L ion batterys it is recommended you start a charge between 15% and 20% life remaining.

Hope this answered your question

Have a great day!

Battery won't hold a full charge


batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)

Motorola radius cp200 will not hold a charge


when charging a new battery for the FIRST time, most require a full 24 hours to be properly charged. Failing to do this will drastically diminish the life of the battery. If you did fully charge the battery the first time, another issue is recharging after EVERY use vs charging when completely drained. Battery will develop memory (although the manf. will say other wise). If you charge after every use and have only used a third of the charge, after a few time of doing this, you will notice that the battery will not last as long. Try one more battery in just one raido. Fully charge it the first time and only recharge when COMPLETLY drained. If the battery is still not holding a charge, it is most likly a short in the radio itself. Return it.

Cobra Micro Talk PR4750WX.New rechargable batteries will not charge in provided charging cradle.


The original Sanik batteries have a negative side with about ten mm of metal showing on the side. Trim the plastic off your new batteries to match and the cradle charges again.

My old 611 dosent hold the battery charge for long even though I have put in a new battery


An in car charger will not charge as well as the mains, when charging for the first time you should use the mains, and charge for at least 8 hours. If it didn't charge correctly, it will be the same low charge all the time, as the battery has a memory that makes it charge the same each time. Try charging from the mains, you might be lucky.

My battery charges but only lasts about 20 minutes once it says it is fully charged. Just purchsed a new battery thinking it was old (laptop is about 3 years old) and the same thing happens.


From what you describe and assuming the new battery was "new", I'd say you have an internal short which is draining the battery over a short period of time. I'd also investigate the accuracy of the battery charge indicator. Download this free utility which will give you a more accurate picture of your battery:

I'm assuming you gave the battery a "commissioning charge" when you bought and used it?
If not, this is something you should do with all new LI batteries. This bit is reproduced from a website that sells batteries for the Toshiba satellite series:

"2. The new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its optimum performance.
3. Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
4. It is normal if the new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special attention if the battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device. Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
5. To maintain the optimum performance of Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
6. New batteries are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15 minutes when Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack is being charged for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging procedure. Sometimes, the new Satellite a205-s4777 battery will suddenly refuse to be charged. If this happens, a suggested solution is trying to remove the battery from the device and insert it again. "

I have new laptop how many hour battery charge first time


First Time Charging
  • The amount of time it takes for your battery to fully charge depends on many factors, like your battery type and operating system. Many newer laptops will charge in 15 to 20 minutes, while others can take a few hours.

    When you're charging your battery for the first time, charge it fully before using your laptop. You may have to go through a battery cycle a couple times before your battery begins performing at its maximum capability. To do this, charge your battery fully, let it discharge to about five percent, and then fully charge it again

    Hello a_imeri,

    So the battery does not charge at all or it just shows that it isn't charged? Does the computer work when it is not plugged in? It sounds like it may be time for a new battery.
