Question about Televison & Video

What can I do about the rechargeable battery that came with my Sungale PD701 portable DVD player that only lasts for about 1-1 1/2 hrs max? I can't watch an entire movie on one charge.

    I loaned it to someone to use in their car while taking a trip, but when I get it back, I'll give it a try. If that doesn't work, what would be my next move?

How old is that battery ? ... basically you can make the battery "learn" to last longer by charging it fully then making sure it is completely discharged.... then charging it again and making sure it is completely discharged before charging it... the cycle should get longer each time. it would be handy to know if that is a lithium battery or a nicad.... and the number on the battery as well

    I've just been doing more research...... unfortunately that is the normal usage you can get out of that battery.... there is an extended battery that will last up to 3 hours. for some reason i'm unable to find a website that sells it tho. so in the end you would need to buy the extended battery.

    please read my further comments. i would appreciate you rating this solution as well... it's unfortunate that they don't sell the player with the extended battery.

Sounds like the battery is kaput.

Depending on the battery type, you need to manage the way it is used and recharged to maintain maximum performance. NiCad batteries hate being topped up. You gotta flatten them in the device before recharging.

Li-Ion (Lithium Ion) are the complete opposite. You charge those the first opportunity you get, and you keep them topped up. They hate to be fully discharged. It's the same for NiMH batteries.

Once the battery has been abused it's impossible to go back without the use of clever "recovery" chargers such as those expensive ones made by PAG for the broadcast industry.

Your best bet might be to replace the existing batteries in the portables and start afresh with good management techniques.

Rechargable Battery

You can check with Radio Shack or Batteries + and see if its a common item based on those specifications.

The Durabrand portable DVD players are no longer supported by Walmart because the company contracted to make them went out of business last year. has several complaints about the product line. Walmart has been exchanging them.
