Sudden Battery drainage - from full charge within 14 hours

I have a Nokia N95 8gb. All of a sudden rapid battery drainage occuring and what used to be a full charge every 3-4 days is now every 12 hours. Bought new battery; same problem. Different charger used; same problem. As if an application is on permanently, but I cannot trace. Really frustating.

Turn off bluetooth if its on because bluetooth wastes battery life on any phone.

go to Tools > Settings > Personal > Display > and change the light settings. if its on the highest light setting then that would be a major factor on why your battery is draining quickly.

hold the menu button and check if any applications are still open, close any that you don't need open.

Acer 4830 battery suddenly dead


Your battery is still alive, the problem is in the laptop, it may have a blown resistor or charging ic. I can bypass these parts tru jumpering if ever these parts are not available in the electronics store. Now, take the laptop in the computer repair shop nearest you for this is a hardware related problem.

Lg thrill wont charge


Date: May 16, 2014

I have an LG Thrill 4G. My phone just went thru an issue where it wouldn't charge past 4%. Sometimes, it wouldn't go past 2%, so I had to leave it on the charger ALL the time - or risk it dying, completely.

For days, the only services shown on my battery usage were:
Cell Standby: 33%
Bluetooth: 33%
Phone Idle: 32%
Display: 2%

I replaced the battery with a brand new one - NOTHING changed. Battery still sat around 2-4% for the entire day, while on the charger. So, I started uninstalling apps like crazy - just to see what would happen.

NOTHING. Same thing.

So, I decided to at least install the Facebook app back...and the upgraded version had to be installed - so I did it.

VOILA!!! My phone instantly started charging ...8%...14%...24%...52%...80%...91%...all over a period of about an hour. Just a constant charge going up a few percentage points every few minutes...

...and all of a sudden, started going back down pretty rapidly when it hit 92%. Within maybe 3mins, the charge went from 92% to 78% - and I wasn't using the phone. I was just watching the meter drop 2 percentage points over a period of a few seconds, each time. I decided to quickly turn the phone off at 78% but left it on the charger.

After roughly 5mins, I turned the phone back on, just to see what the charge would be sitting at. WOULDN'T YA KNOW - 3%.

How can battery life go from 78% to 3% - while it's OFF - within a 5min span??? Therefore, my question is: was it really charged to 78% when I turned the phone off? Or was the battery meter being "tricked" by some app that might be installed?

The first battery it did this to was the 1500mah. Used that battery for like 3 days of this before I replaced it. The battery the scenario above JUST happened to is my new 3500mah battery, and it's been giving this 3500mah battery the 3% capacity for a whole day and a half now...

Hi. i got a dell inspiron n4010 laptop. my battery backup suddenly dropped to half. i bought the laptop just 25 days ago. what may be its cause?


I am glad to HELP YOU!

The problem that are you describing here occurs many times - even for the BRAND NEW laptops!
The RAPID DRAINAGE of the batteries can have multiple causes:
# a defective battery
# the humidity of the storage place
# a bad connector
and so on.
What I'd suggest you is to take back your machine to the store and to ask for a BATTERY REPLACEMENT. I assume that if you said you've bought your Dell 25 days ago it should be under some WARRANTY CONDITIONS...
The next battery you will gt do like this:
# attach the battery into its slot
# make sure your Dell machine is OFF
# connect the AC power supply into the wall plug
# with the machine still OFF let the battery fully charge for AT LEAST 16 HOURS.

My best regards!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

My calculator drains a set of four batteries with every use. Why?


I am not sure what every use means: duration, programs running etc. But that drainage is properly excessive. TI estimates that with 2 hours a day of usage, the batteries should last a school semester.

Possible causes of rapid drainage.
The most common causes of rapid battery drain are mismatched batteries
  1. Batteries of different brands
  2. Batteries of different types (alkaline (1.5V + rechargeable NiMH 1.2V)
  3. Batteries of different charge levels (new batteries with old ones)
  4. Negative charge build up
Another cause of rapid battery drain is the use of third-party programs: Certain of them keep large amounts of data in memory. Some of them are tweaked to bypass the TI power management scheme and disable the TI APD (automatic Power Down ) after 5 minutes of inactivity.

Possible remedies
  1. Remove all batteries (main batteries and backup battery)
  2. Leave them out of calculator for about 15 minutes. (Beware that this will clear the contents of the memory and that data will be lost along with all applications installed). However Applications cam always be reinstalled once calculator returns to its normal state.
  3. The possible benefit of the removal of all batteries is to make the negative charge build up disappear.
If that fails
If the foregoing steps fail to restore the calculator to its normal behavior, you may have to contact TI Customer Assistance by filling out and submitting a customer assistance form.

My htc touch dimond consumes the battery all of a sudden. i changed the battery but the problem is there. the battery shws full charge and after 3 4 hours the mobile goes off , and the battery has to be...


Make sure that the WiFi and Bluetooth is disabled unless you need them. Try changing the charger and use the wall charger instead of the USB one. In case after changing the charger, the battery still dries out, then it might be some fault (voltage leak in the mainboard) or it is time to change the battery.

My suns Quickie P320 (dual battery) requires very


Rapid discharge usually is a sign of weak batteries, and they should be replaced if the charge indicates that they are full after charging for several hours, and then dissipate rapidly.

If your not getting a full charge indication after several hours, then you need to check the charger to make sure it is putting out about 28 Volts DC. If it is, then it is for sure the batt's.

The sweeping lights should not occur when the chair is off the charger. They sweep while on charge to tell you that it is charging and you can't move the chair. If they sweep while off the charger, turn off and restart and it should go. If not, call a tech. rep. for Quickie.

How long should I let my battery recharge?


If you have the PS130 12v Battery, and the one-hour rapid charger from Black and Decker, then, in theory, it should only take an hour to charge the battery (according to them). However, I would leave the battery on charge for at least several hours to guarantee a full charge each time. That battery is a NiCad cell battery, and these typically take longer to reach a full capacity charge. So give it a few hours at least, but it probably wont hurt it if you left the battery on charge even overnight either... But don't let them charge for longer than 18 hours maximum!

Laptop sudden poweroff randomly


I googled "fujitsu laptop forum" and read a couple of posts and it may be an AC input jack problem. If the computer does this without the battery and only AC plugged in then you could assume it's not the battery or charging circiuts. Some laptops get mother board problems but that was not what I read. It wouldn't hurt to go to http://forum.notebookreview.com/forumdisplay.php?f=7 and post your problem. good luck.
