Why plugged in not charging

Is the computer at full charge (or at least 90%) prior to the attempt to charge it? I know that my Lenovo is set to not charge from 90% in order to keep the battery from overcharging.

Battery won't charge

In most things I get biofeedback telling me I have either screwed something on correctly, or that I know it's cross-threaded. I know from the feel as I make the connection.

With my UV5R+ and its charger stand, I really don't know if it's sitting in the charger stand and making contact -- unless I see the light turn solid red. That means it's charging.

I have set it in place and it slipped right in, making the light go red. And I have set it ip place, jiggled it and set it again, and have slammed it in, all without success It is of a very poor design.

That may be your problem, you have it "cross-threaded" and don't know it. Have you ever seen the battery charger show Red?

I don't know if my experience is a one-of-a-kind or if it is widespread.

Now, if you do get around the design flaw I have described and the charger does go red, your battery may be faulty. it's not charging.

How do I know it's charging?

If you put a meter across the battery posts, set to dc volts, while it is charging, it should read about 13.5 volts.

While the Nano is charging there will be a symbol like a "lightning bolt" across the battery.

Once it is finished charging and charge is full there will be a graphic of a plug over the battery.

If the unit is turning off before it is finished charging and you cannot see the graphics you can go into your backlight settings and have it set to stay always on.

Then you will be able to see the plug graphic to tell when it is fully charged.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

OK, on the first original charge that is required when you first purchased this unit, it can charge for at least 8 to 10 hours. this is called a set up charge. After the first original charge, it is recommended to not charge over the set amount of time given by the actual cell unit. your phone will beep or, display a completed charge message after the charge has been completed successfully. if you go over the set charge, this can damage most cell battery's. Standard charge time after the original set charge is 2 hours.
