Uh oh. It sounds like you have a short somewhere that drains the battery. First make sure your negative battery cable has a good solid ground to the frame. (Usually you have to have a flashlight). Then look on your dash and make sure you don't have some dome light on. Then go watch the YouTube video put out by Scotty Kilmer:

Good luck!

Most user reviews place this netbook's battery life at minimum 5 hours at maximum capacity, and at leat 7 or 8 hours at minimum capacity. Can anyone tell me then why my battery only goes up to 5 hours at...

Battery manufacturing can vary, along with review circumstances. Your battery may need to be reconditioned (Drained the battery to empty, charge to full, drain to empty, repeat) so that it can use it's full potential. There is also the chance though, that your battery is just in poor health due to overuse or manufacturing defect. If reconditioning is no help, then call Samsung and complain that your battery isn't lasting as long as it should be, and they may send you a new battery.

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.

The battery on my 201 forerunner is only lasting 5-6 hrs, how do I change batteries and is it worth it. Cheers Tom


It is actually meant to last for 15 hour per charge, and it lasting just 5-6 hours simply means it is either not fully charged or the battery is weak.

It uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery, and it can be replaced, you will have to open it up to be able to locate the battery.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will strongly advice you get a repairman replace the battery for you.

Since taking a walk with it wont take up to 5-6 hours, it will be best you leave it that way, and try to recharge as soon as it drops, but if you use it for over that amount of time in a day then you can replace it. the battery is located right underneath the wrist band used in strapping the hand.

Take care

I installed a new battery and its not lasting for the time remaing. what should my battery be set on normal full power high power saver power

Toshiba usually has a power configuration utility for this... when on battery, reduce your inactive time values to the minimum... suggested ...screen off in 1-2 minutes and harddrive should shut down in 2-5 minutes. system standby in 15 minutes, hibernate in 1 hour.

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.

My Aspire 3680 Laptop will not charge the battery.

Although both could be the culprit, it is far more likely that the battery has gone dead.

RCA prov712 battery will only last 5 minutes

Be sure to charge for AT LEAST 14 hours on the new battery, even if the charger light goes out - it's still trickle charging. It's normal for most camcorders to auto-shut off after 5 minutes, if it's not recording. But if your batt light comes on, the problem is probably with the battery.
