Battery run-down on iPAQ 2495

New 2495 with fresh charge (to 100%) will be completely dry the next day with no usage in between. I have seen postings that suggest that the device turns itself on at random times and runs down, but no solutions posted, and anyway, what would run it down in 6 - 8 hours? Is it watching movies or playing mpgs? There are none loaded. I hate to purchase a new battery if there could be some simplier solution. Thanks, Tom Skinner, kj3d@comcast.net

I know this is an older thread, but my 2495 was doing the same! I found out that it was my Outlook that was causing the problem. It was set to check for new email every 1 minute, and it appears to have been turning itself on over night to do this check (every minute!!). I disabled this feature and did a soft reset and volia! I did turn it back on to test this fix, and sure enough it kept turning itself back on! Did the fix again and it works fine!

Car doesn't start


try using a volt meter after you shut it off and watch the meter and see if it drains,which would mean something is still drawing power when the car is off,then try removing fuses one at a time too possibly narrow down where the draw s coming from.if the battery is new then it should not have a bad cell which could cause it too drain.

One of the things is usage does drop the scale each time you use the battery without having the power supply unit plugged in. This is common for it to drop. The thing to worry about is if it does not charge back up to 100% at all. The ideal way to not ruin a battery is to let it go completely down to about 10% then charge it to 100% and go that route always charging will over time decrease battery life. So there is nothing that you are doing wrong or the battery going bad not at all this is normal. It will discharge normally without any usage especially over a two week period of time not being charged and just sitting there. John

FS240BX battery how Long should it take to charge.


Hi .Charge the battery initially for 9 hours.

After the initial charge, under normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the power pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.

The red light is just a power indicator. The light will not go out, change color, or blink when the charging has been completed.

To prolong power pack life, avoid leaving the power pack on charge for extended periods of time (over 30 days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly reduce overall power pack life.

The power pack will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal usage.

There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteries
Hope this was of some help to you.

My Ipaq rx3715 won't charge. "AC only"


its obsolete now, why use this thing?
wait for battery? then post?
or go to HP and ask them,
we are not HP, this is chat bs boxes here.

ever heard of HP? this is the official HP forum, try it?

If HP cant help you who can,
learn this ,when compelled to mess with obsolete products
buy 2 of them for like $3 on fleabay (most are in the trash now)
then mix and match parts, all day.
its obsolete, so doing tests on it lacking full spares is impossible.
why not buy a $3 used smart phone from same place,

Battery charging status remains constant (not increasing)


I've have seen a number of different batteries do this, and I recommend what is called 're-conditioning the batteries. Do this by running the battery completely down to 0%. Then do a complete re-charge of the battery to 100% (if possible). If it charges to 100%, run it completely to 0% again and then recharge it. If it does not charge to 100%, then you may have a faulty or old battery which will need to be replaced. The AC adaptor and battery have circuitry in them and might be retaining incorrect info in them. They can be reset by unplugging them for a few minutes and then plugging them back in. There might be a specific sequence of what to unplug and when, in order to reset this circuitry. Try a couple of them. (ie. Battery, AC adaptor in to battery, AC adaptor into the wall, etc.)

Let me know what happens. Binary Bob

RTM?
read page 27 , carefully and the gravity of these words

"Keep the battery charged.
The programs and files you install or create are stored in volatile RAM memory. If the battery
completely discharges, all user-installed programs and user data files
created will be erased and you will have to reinstall them. To prevent
losing valuable programs and files, keep the battery always charged.
Optionally, you can store a limited number of programs and files in the
iPAQ File Store folder so that if the battery completely discharges, they
will not be lost."
the store, is a NVram?, not flash. and the STORE has a battery
what is the chances of any 13year old battery still good.(zero?>)

see the coin cell here, it unplugs other models are soldered down.

Can you get the iPaq hooked up directly to AC power? There's apparently a charging threshhold for badly depleted batteries that the USB port cannot get over.
