Have you let the battery go totally flat as this is recomended to do every couple of months because if you dont let the battery go totally flat this stops the battery from full recharging and will cause bad cells in the batt so i would let hte battery totally flat till it wont even light phone up then fully charge for 16 hours see if this improves the battery if not then the charger is probably over heating and cutting off so you could replace the charge hope this is some help to you

My tablet will not power up. I have charged it over night and still nothing. I tried different chargers and still nothing. Help!!

It could be that you have damaged the on/off button.
It could be that you have damaged the USB charging port.
Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

My battery only lasts about 1 hour

There are many standard techniques to improve your battery life. Turn off bluetooth + wifi. Close unused programs. Change your screen brightness to lower levels. Disable location services when not using GPS.
If these don't improve your battery life then its time to change your battery. Also make sure you are using the right original charger to charge your battery.

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.

Nokia 1100 phone when i connect the charger only i can swith on my phone other wise i cant swith on the phone


The problem with your phone is battery, the battery on your phone can no longer hold charges, that is why it switches on when you connect the charger.

I would advice you get a new battery on your phone and make sure you charge the new battery for at least 4-5 hours before you start using it. doing this will solve the problem on your phone and charging the battery before usage will help preserve the life span of the battery.

Take care.

Battery does not charge

Will the old battery (that you are replacing) charge up at all? If the old battery charges but the new battery will not, then it's likely a bad replacement battery.

To rule out the possibility of a corrupted battery meter inside of windows, you may wish to leave the laptop on battery power only, until it dies. A 5% charge will usually only grant you about 20 minutes of laptop life maximum. Since you left it charging all night, you should get a few hours of life before it dies. If you get a few hours of life, the battery meter software is corrupted.

Most likely though, the replacement battery is bad.

Motorola CP040 charging time

The rapid rate charger WPLN41__ will typically charge a battery in 90-120 minutes. Your battery should be depleted or nearly depleted when you place it in the charging stand. Be certain your radio is always turned off, when charging an attached battery. The NiMH battery will generally go 12-16 hours on a charge when new. If you work an eight hour shift, you might see if the radio will go 2 days on a charge. Later as the battery ages, you will need to charge it nightly. (Think of putting it in the charger as putting it to bed at night.)

Rapid charging is necessary on NiMH and Li-Ion batteries. They require a "hotter" charger, a fast rate, to completely charge the battery. It will not harm this chemistry of battery. It is safe to leave the battery on the charger overnight, or for a weekend. We would not recommend leaving the battery on the charger longer periods of time, as that will age the battery and reduce its life.

(Sidenote: Frequent rapid charging will however reduce the life of a NiCD battery.)

Well, the white to pink dot is a sign of water in the phone. It is a moisture indicator and the first thing the repair fols look for so they can deny any claims.

They second thing is you can get an external battery charger for the razor. They run about 5 dollars and allow you to charge the battery seperate from the phone.

Battery not holding a you leave phone on while charging

firstly the battery from new will need charging for about 8 hours to boost it after that it should reach full charge in about 1 hour it will charge if it is on or off and when off should show a charging bar how ever there is no way it will recognise when fully charged so dont leave over night otherwise it will reduce battery life greatly
