SOURCE: How do I charge the TomTom XL 330

Hi There!

You Can charge your Tomtom when you drive, or you can charge it with a USB port on your computer.
I don't think they come with a mains charger anymore?

You can either charge in the car, or you can use the docking station (USB cable you connect with to use TomTom Home) to charge from your computer

NI-MH D 14.4V 8000mAh Charger Hack. I need an alternative charger like charging on a car battery?


NI-MH batteries a re very different than car batteries and even tho voltage may be similar, you risk destroying your battery, camera or worse, an explosion. Your batter may only need a limited amount of amperage to charge (likely not much more than 1500ma or 1.5 amp) a car battery charger may put out twice or even ten times that much - hence the explosion risk! Also these kind of chargers detect when your battery is full and will quit charging or switch to a maintenance mode. I'm afraid you're pretty much stuck with using the charger meant for it.

How long does it take to charge battery in solar fence charger?


    1. A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

If the batteries needed changing would the green charging light still come on and would the alarm beep when attached to scooter and turned on?


Yup. The alarm beeps if you have the charger plugged in and turn on the key even if the battery is flat. The charger won't bring a totally discharged battery up to full charge. You can charge the battery individually using an automotive style battery charger. The charger should NOT be the automatic type. It may take some time to recover a flat battery. Charge it until you can see at least 10 volts on the battery. The scooter charger can then finish up the charge. If after you go through all this and the batteries will not take a charge, then it's battery time.

PEG Perego Battery doesn't charge.


You have to first know what type of rechargeable battery you have. lead-acid, lithium-ion, ni-cad? NEVER use an unmatched charger for a different type of battery, they can EXPLODE in your face. Your current battery may have a memory from incorrect charging procedures, your charger could be bad. You don't know enough to handle the problem yourself, take it somewhere, a car repair, or even a TV shop.

Pro logix charge does'nt start


Do you mean that the charger doesn't start the car? Have you waited long enough for the charger to charge the battery? Sometimes it will take a long time. A battery will lose its efficiency up to 60 percent during cold weather. That means it will take even longer to charge up the battery for a start. Especially if it has been sitting for a long time. Remember, to start a car with a battery charger, the battery must have a partial charge. Put your battery charger in the low setting of "2amps" and allow it to charge for a dozen hours. If it doesn't start the care by then, you better have the battery tested. It may not be able to hold a charge. Which could keep it from starting the car.

My old 611 dosent hold the battery charge for long even though I have put in a new battery


An in car charger will not charge as well as the mains, when charging for the first time you should use the mains, and charge for at least 8 hours. If it didn't charge correctly, it will be the same low charge all the time, as the battery has a memory that makes it charge the same each time. Try charging from the mains, you might be lucky.

Iphone 3g proper charging


Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.

Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active, which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan. The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A
Thanks!

My phone wont turn on or charge even tho i charged it all night


It sounds like you need to replace your battery. But first, if you're using a home charger, try charging the phone with a car charger (or vice versa). If the problem is not with your charger, then replace your battery.

When you get your new battery:
1) Make sure you are using the proper charger for your phone (not one of the cheep $5 kind), and
2) charge your battery for at least 12 hours before you use it for the first time.

Battries are discharged and now charger does not operate


The batteries will discharge below the reference voltage required for the charger to "see" the batteries if left uncharged for more than a month or more. You have to carefully bring the batteries back up to about 12 volts each for the charger to see them. The easiest way is take them to a qualified battery shop that has a step charger for sealed batteries. If you attempt to use a car charger on sealed batteries, you will ruin the batteries or even blow them up as the cases are sealed and the gas from charging has no way to escape. Some people have used a standard car battery charger on low only, applying a charge to one battery for about 15 minutes, then the other for 15, etc. until the batteries are back up to 12 volts, but again, using a car charger is dangerous and could cause the battery to explode.
