Fortress 1700 Quad (DT or TA?). Charger overheating

When charging the battery, the connector from the charger gets very hot. It has never done this before. The battery is not old and does hold its charge. Would you have a suggestion as to the source of the problem?

SOURCE: battery charger wont switch over to charge on a sonic scooter

The Sonic has an off board charger. IF the scooter is not charging, you may need to replace it. If you a technically inclined, you can measure the voltage out of the charger, it should be more than 28 V. You may need to contact Pride for more help.

SOURCE: 1700 Fortress Scooter won't go forward or

Hi. Has the machine been in regular use before the fault occured? You say that the brake is in brake release mode, this mode is only ever used if you need to push the scooter by hand. It releases the brake on the motor, and also operates a switch to disable the controller from driving the motor. It does this because it would be to dangerous to drive the scooter with the brake disabled.
Move the lever back to its correct position. If it still does not work, then the disable switch might be faulty, or it might be a different fault such as a stuck brush in the motor.
Is this machine produced by shoprider ( Phisang ) of Taiwan.
Please let me know how you get on. Neil.

SOURCE: I just bought a new battery charger cable called

ismail the charger you bought should do the job. By stop charging do you mean the light on the charger turns from yellow to green? Your scooter has small batteries 12/12 and don't require along period of charging. Now the scooter has a heat sensor for the batteries and will cut off charging when temp of the batteries gets too high. The older charger could have overcharged your batteries and made them weaker instead of stronger. I would suggest you replace the batteries (2 12/12AH) and charge them with the new charger. Remember to reinstall the heat sensors on each battery when replacing. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 v dc and put the leads into the 2 outer plugs in the charger port on the battery pack. You should read 24-26 volts dc when the batteries are fully charged anything less would mean weak batteries. Hope this helps you

Trio Quad Core Tablet will not charge


Either the charger or the battery is faulty, from the sound of your fault description. If the tablet will turn on and run normally when the charger is plugged in, then the problem most likely lies with the battery. If it will not run even when the charger is on, then the charger is most likely the cause of the fault. If your tablet is still under warranty, either problem should be repaired free

Go-go battery won't charge


PLEASE NOTE: The Low Voltage Protection feature on this battery charger will not allow the charger to activate unless it is connected to a battery pack that has a minimum voltage of 16 volts. Battery packs with voltages below that level of charge cannot be recovered or recharged. This is a safety feature to prevent overheating in the event of a faulty battery. This battery charger will not output any voltage to the XLR connector until connected to a battery pack meeting this minimum voltage requirement.

My propel gets really hot on the back when i charge it. is it the battery or the charger?


It's the battery and the charger. It's best not to use the propel when it is on charge because it will stop charging and say, 'Charging Stopped, Overheating' Or something like that.

MOTOROLA T5522 BATERIES


Hello mironas3,

A general rule of thumb when dealing with rechargeable battery packs is to take the capacity of the battery divided by the charge rating of the charger and then add an additional 10%.

Offhand I am not sure what the voltage / capacity or voltage / charge rating of the battery and charger are but you can determine that by examine the labels on both items. Let’s say (for example) that your battery is listed as 7.2 volts and 1,000 mAH and your charger is rated as 9 volts and 100 mA. (These are just theoretical examples. Substitute the numbers from your own items.) You would divide 1,000 mAH by 100 mA to equal 10 hours. Then add 10%. So you expect a full charge to take around 11 hours time.

Of course, actual charge time will vary depending on how discharged the batteries are when you start charging them. Since the charger that Motorola provided doesn't have a charge indicator determining when the batteries are done charging is a matter of making an educated guess. If you touch the batteries while they are charging and they feel warm to the touch, that's a pretty good indication that they are done or nearly done charging as once the batteries are topped off excess power will turn into heat. (Note that batteries in a charger should never be HOT. If they are ever more then just slightly warm, something is wrong with the battery or the charger or both.)

Also, just a word of warning here: remember to always use the correct manufacturer recommended charger. Substituting a charger with twice the charge rate to charge the batteries in half the time is not a good idea. Rechargeable batteries are meant to be charged slowly. Fast chargers exist but they typically have built-in circuitry that pulses the charge rate to prevent the batteries from overheating. Using the wrong charger can result in damage to your battery or radio or worse could possibly even lead to a fire.

Best Regards,
Ken

Gateway MX8711 CHARGER IS OVERHEATING.....NOT CHARGING FULLY NOW CHARGER HOT TO TOUCH...CAN'T LEAVE NOTEBOOK CHARGING TOO LONG


how old is this charger?? might be time for a replacement, also im sure the battery is no longer good either

take the batter out see if the computer stay on and gets hot.

if it does still get hot check if the CPU fan or the fans are spinning, if not, the MOTHERBOARD could be shot.

check the fan make sure they are free moving, no dust.
