You have to try as it would be new : turn off the phone and charge it for 12 hours. Check out if battery bars are moving. If not then battery is dead and you need to buy new one.

The battery life is VERY much shorter on my phone than it used to be. I'm having to buy new ones every 3/4months? What's wrong? I always buy the best possible type from a reliable supplier.


battery life depends on 2 things
the amount of time you spend on the phone and the number of apps you are running
and the level of charge at which you recharge the phone
Recent questions put to a phone repair shop got the answer that 3 days from a fully charged battery was exceptional as most only do 1 day on normal use and less if watching live streaming
as to the level at recharge , batteries have a habit of developing a level memory and will not charge past that point
So if you continually recharge at almost flat, and allow for a full recharge , you get full battery life
at the other end of the period , if you recharge at say 75% charge , the battery memory starts and then it doesn't matter how long you charge the battery for , it will only charge 25% which means you wind up with a flat battery more often
so how to overcome the problem---the more you use it the quicker the battery runs down and when recharging always allow the battery to be less than 5% charge before recharging it ( dead flat is best) and leave it on charge for the max amount of time ( overnight is best)

How to make the battery life of a rechargeable electronic device last longer.


Have you noticed how the more you use a rechargeable appliance, the shorter it's battery life is? I don't know the exact reason, but what makes sense in my mind is that if you let the battery run out over, and over, and over, there is a little bit of the charge that you cannot recover and use, thus making the life of the battery shorter, thus giving you less time with the appliance. I have experienced this with my first Nintendo DS, which after letting the battery die over and over, would charge for hours on end and only last for a little bit more than half an hour. The way to stop this from happening is quite simple. I have a second generation Ipod, which i have had for about 3 years, and it still has almost full battery life. The trick is to keep the battery more than halfway charged all the time. The only, I repeat, the ONLY time you want the battery to run out is the first use. Yes, that is the opposite of what I just said, but it works. Trust me. I bought a new DS and used the same tactic, though i dont know if it was more than half a battery, and I have had it for almost 4 years, and the only thing wrong with it is the right trigger. I've dropped it several times on the trigger, and that is why sometimes it doesn't work. So, next time you buy a rechargeable appliance, keep this in mind.

Battery Conditioning.


Anything and everything that uses rechargeable batteries should be conditioned initially and then on a regular basis in order to extend the life of your battery. These products can be your MP3 player, iPod, Cellular Phone, Cordless phone, laptop and other similar products with internal batteries or proprietary batteries. I have a 3 year old laptop that I can still get over 1.5 hours of battery life out of. The secret is conditioning your battery. The manner in which you condition your battery is the same whether it is a brand new product or you have had the product for a time. You must do the following: 1) Fully charge the item. 2) Use the item only on battery until he battery is completely drained. 3) Charge the item fully once again. 4) Fully drain the item a second time. 5) charge fully and use as you would normally for 60-90 days then repeat this process. I know it sounds pretty simple and t most people you would think this has no effect on battery life but instead of getting into the details of how and why this does work let me just impart that I have graduated from courses as an Electronics Technician and a Technologist and I have a e year old laptop, 4 year old Cellular phone and a 3 year old iPod all with battery lives that exceed what most people get from their items with much less use and age than mine. I was also offered a job with those geek squad people by their regional manager here but I turned them down, I hate robbing people and that is exactly what I believe the geek squad does here. This does work you just have to stick to it. Now Laptops are a difficult thing to condition because you have to go in and change the power settings regarding running off battery. What you want to do is set these in a way that will drain the battery completely in the shortest time, that means maximum brightness, never turn off display and never turn off hard drives. Best of luck to you all and

Battery life only half


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Milwaukee tool 18 volt nimh battery won!t charge


If the battery pack is more than 2 years old its time for a replacement. The typical charge/discharge life cycle of a rechargeable cell is 500 - 700 times and the shelf life is about 3-4 years from the date of manufacture. If the charging indicator lights up when you dock the battery on to the base and still does not work after 5 hours - its due for a replacement.

Doro 5065R +3 not working after replaced battery


I have replace my doro batteries with Duracell rechargeables, just make sure you fully charge them before you put them in the handset.  If you find after a time that the charge goes again, charge them again (in the charger you buy when you buy the batteries)! Hope this helps.  PS, do you know how to turn the answering machine on?
