Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook

Hi there.

You must only use power supplies which are specific to that particular laptop, even if you have a power supply of the same voltage but the amps are different it may power the machine but in my experience they have blown the PB (power board) which has resulted in no charge at all right down to the motherboard itself being blown.

I suggest you use the power supply specific to that laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

not exact, to charge apropiate needs 10% more than nominal voltage. if not, will not charge the batteries.

And the charger its very important because you can over charge the battery.An example,if you have a 12 Amps Batteries each one if you put it in series will be 24 Volts.at parallel conection will be 12 volts but the double of Amps.

At serial connection will be 12 Volts the amps will be the same but the volts will be 24.

The charger at 12 Volts must be 13.8-14.5 DC Volts and divide the Amps in Hours.

The charger at 24 Volts must be 26-28 Volts. to charge well.

The charger for 12 amps batt example must charge 2 amps per hour at 6 hours = 12 Amps.(2 Amps Charger by 6 Hours Charging= 12 Amps.(Fully Charged.

3 Amperes Charger needs 4 Hours to charge 12 amps Batt.

5 Amperes Charger needs 2 Hours charging an a quarter

All of this is at DC Current.

Luck.

most chargers these days regulate the amperage as the battery charges. My Motomaster charger starts off at 16 amps on a depleted or low battery and goes down to 5 amps once fully charged. Battery maintainers put out about 2 amps.

The red clamp on the charger goes to the + sign on the battery. The black goes to the -. I you want a deep charge(best) set the charger on 2 amps and run it for 8 to 12 hours. If you need to get the car started, set the charger on 225 amps for just a couple of minutes. Start the car while it is on..2 amps can charge forever. 20 amps for 30 minutes. 30 to 40 amps for 15 minutes. 225 amps for five minutes..DO NOT charge 20+ amps for hours. It will kill the battery

Hello, Is the battery in the camera or in the charger ?? Don't quite understand the question. You wrote "received correct wall charger AC/DC ?" was that a question concerning the new charger ? it sounds like your not quite sure about the charger.

Take the batteries to a battery shop or a Battery plus store have them load test the batteries. Deep cycle batteries are different from normal batteries. Normal batteries are design for max output for short periods of time, Deep cycle batteries are designed for a modest output for long periods of time. My batteries are rated at 35 amp/hr.. Basically a load tester places a load in amps [cranking amps] on the battery. How many cranking amps depends on if there is a voltage drop when you apply the load. I can apply 480 cranking amps before my voltage drops. What i do is load test a new battery of the same type to find out the cranking amps. You will not find a cranking amp rating for aq deep cycle battery but retail places have load testers that read in cranking amps. Use only deep cycle batteries in scooters, garden tracker batteries will not last. If the batteries are ok test the charger. A CHARGER KNOWS THE CHARGE OF THE BATTERY BY BATTERY RESISTANCE. As a battery charges its resistance get bigger. Once the battery reaches a preset resistance the light goes solid. You can have the charger checked by a battery shop. To properly charge a battery a charger will put out 27volts @ 4amps, they can easily test for voltage. Now if the charger is built in there is going to be an external fuse find it, check it. hope this helps

The battery is 12 volts and to charge use a 2-10 amp charger.

First Make sure the batter was charged with possitive on the plus and negative on the minus sign. For some crazy reason my battery drained and I charged it by just looking at the colored pads and the previous owner had them on backwards so I basically reversed the poles on my battery. (The car wouldn't start either). Use a volt meter to be sure it will show - minus sign if backwards

Make sure all your cables were reinstalled, (red wire to alternator and starter) Black wires to grounds.

If all that checks and your battery show good voltage try your (Large fuses) mains that are 20,30,40,50,and 60 amps.

How many amps does this charger put out????

A small trickle charger will take forever to fully recharge a dead battery, you'll need to have a battery charger that can put out enough amps to properly charge a dead battery.To clarify, the chargers sold at Sears, the large square types on wheels are the best for charging dead batteries and they also have an amp meter telling you how much the battery is accepting. After you charge your battery, you should be around 12.5 volts to 12.7 volts. DO NOT OVER CHARGE!!!

Connect your TomTom to the car charger and turn it on. Tap the lower right hand cornor where the sat. signal graph is. On the screen that comes up check to see if it is chargeing while connected to the car charger. It should say charging in the upper right hand cornor where it shows the battery status. If it isn't charging then you have either a bad pin on your windsheild mount or your charger is not working. If the charger is not working it may be as simple as replacing the fuse in the charger.

thats what i did on mine they blew when i hooked the cables up backwards (gotta watch that)

but i used 130 amp alt diodes from an old tractor alt i had
