I own the RCA Lyra RD2726A (4Gig) and I have had similar problems with the battery, only it doesn't last longer than 1/2 hour sometimes. The trouble with mine seems to be that the backlight is what is draining the battery - when I can steer clear of causing the backlight to come on, I get more play time out of it.

I also just noticed today, after having the player connected for some time to my computer, that it seems to be holding the charge better than when I charge it with the AC adaptor. I wonder then if it isn't my AC adaptor that is the culprit. I think that for now I am going to continue to charge it via USB cable, and see how that goes.
I just thought I'd share those thoughts. I hope they are maybe just a little bit helpful!

How long have you had it? Read below, pasted from, basically if it's 1.5yrs old more the battry needs replacing. Some capacity deterioration is noticeable after one year, whether the battery is in use or not. The battery frequently fails after two or three years. It should be noted that other chemistries also have age-related degenerative effects. This is especially true for nickel-metal-hydride if exposed to high ambient temperatures. At the same time, lithium-ion packs are known to have served for five years in some applications. Manufacturers are constantly improving lithium-ion. New and enhanced chemical combinations are introduced every six months or so. With such rapid progress, it is difficult to assess how well the revised battery will age. It's an internal battery and the player needs to be taken apart to replace. Hope this helps L8R

Motorcycle battery charging

Use a trickle charger no more than 2 amps. Initial charge will take 8-16 hours if done this way. The dealership can put a service charge on it which usually takes an hour, but I have found that the battery doesn't last as long this way.

Don't know how to charge my new nextbook . . .

THIS FROM SUPPORT SITE> GENERAL 1. How long should I charge my battery and how long does it last?
It takes about 5 hours to charge fully and one charge will last for about 4-10 hours (with default system settings) depending on the work mode where you are. In default system settings and full charge mode, it is about 11 hours of ebook reading, 11 hours of music playback, 9 hours of video playback or 7 hours of web browsing. The time will get shortened if your Next2 handles multi tasks at the same time.
2. How do I charge my Next2 properly?
The device features a DC-IN port for connecting to power or charging battery. To charge the device, connect your device to any standard wall outlet through the DC-IN port using the AC adaptor.

How long should my battery last? I bought an nintendo DS lite and I forgot to ask?

Hello there, the Nintendo DS Lite has four levels of brightness. The battery will last 15-19 hours on the lowest settings, and 5-8 hours on the brightest.This can also vary depending on the type of game activity."
So the DS should last the whole time in even on the highest brightness settings, if fully charged. Nintendo states that it takes 3 hours to fully charge the DS. 

hope this helped, also this site will also help you to get your ds battery to last for longer…

good luck

How many hours is the normal charging of toshiba laptop?

That depents on what you do with it.
Battery drainers are:

- Big applications (Photoshop, Music, Video, 3D, Games...)
- Wlan/Wifi/Bluetooth
- Sound and Video playback
- Display set to brightest
- Burning/constantly reading Dvd/cd

a new laptop just sitting there should last 4-5 hours.
Under full workload i doubt that itll last longer than 2-3

but it also depends on the modell.

Unit will not turn on

Your battery is recharged when connected to your computer. Turn the player off and connect it to your computer via the USB cord. The computer must be turned on. Initial charge should be for 10 hours with subsequent charges 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. A quick charge of 1-1/2 hours will give you a 70 percent charge. A fully charged battery will last up to 15 hours under normal use.
