Battery fully charged but still shutting down when disconnected from mains

Just purchased a new acer aspire one. Charging battery for the first time,Icon on desktop telling me that battery is fully charged but when I disconnect it from the charger it shuts down?? The manual doesn't tell you length of charging time needed so therefore "assumed" when hovering over battery icon and it tells me that it is charged 100% that it is fully charged? The battery is locked into place and seems to fit perfectly. I would be really grateful and appreciate some advice on this. Thanking you.

New batteries have been sitting on the shelf for possible a long time. These batteries need to be cycled quite a few times before they reach their full amp hour capacity. The batteries need to be charger to 100% and then discharge to nearly zero. Do not half discharge and the charge to 100%.

Find another battery it says like the one you have is faulty. If you try another known good battery and that fails just like yours then try a know good ac adaptor. If that fails, then its a problem with the motherboard not charging batteries properly but it really does sound like a faulty battery from my experience.

Acer Aspire 4830T laptop battery behaving vaguely


Do you still have the old battery. If so charge it, and see if it charges properly. If so then you have a bad battery.

My laptop shut down every one hours Exactly


Remove the battery and use the laptop with the adaptor plugged in to check if it still shuts down after one hour. Do a similar test with the fully charged battery installed and the adaptor NOT plugged in. If no problem with both tests there may be a problem with the charging circuit or possibly the battery.

How many hours to charge a new acer 4738?, mine is too long to charge, is it natural if new?


A brand new battery has to be charged for 8 hours.For any battery related issue, a reset or calibration can be done.Just drain all the charge in the battery by using the laptop only on battery power( ie,with the Charger/Adaptor disconnected).After the comp shuts down due to no power,then charge the battery for 8-10 hours and then check if its fully getting charged or not
At times a BIOS update can fix battery related issues.
