Cozmo robot won't hold charge?

So I put the little guy on the charger, he lights up, and I wait a good 15 minutes just to make sure the battery is full. I boot up the app and the moment he disconnects from the charger he turns off. I tried a few adapters just to make sure, even plugged the charger directly into my laptop, tried a few outlets and still nothing. He lights up on the base but won't hold the charge. Edit: I have contacted Anki about it, they said they can replace it but y'know...I'm attached.

Testimonial: "That's the problem, it's a custom lithium polymer battery. There isn't anyone who manufactures them aside from Anki - and they don't sell them."

  • Bill Boyd Apr 21, 2017

    that is not quite correct
    Anki make the unit but the battery is made and sold by a vast range of manufacturers
    go google and type in --manufacturers of lithium polymer batteries --and there a dozen different manufacturers sites

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.

Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Cordless power tools

To maximize your battery life let them cool down 15 minutes before you put them on the charger.Also let them cool down after charging before use for 15 minutes.Store your batteries with a full charge and condition them every month by using them a little bit and return them to the charger for a full charge.

Alcatel 960c stuck on the little boot guy

Try powering off. Take out the battery for a minute and put back. This usually works for problems.

My battery for canon camera 550d flashes orange when charging, its been 4 hours now and it hasnt turned green yet.. I am charging it first time.. is this normal

Okay what happens sometimes is the charger gets into a feed back loop. What to do is remove the battery unplug the charger wait a few seconds (Maybe 20/30) plug the charger back into the outlet and then put the battery back in the charger. It should start to charge again and a few minutes later go to the blinking for full charge green.

It'll happen the other way as well meaning if the battery gets a memory (they say they don't but they do) you need to unplug the battery let is sit till it's cool and put it back on charge again. I've had this problem many times and have put it on charge and back off several times with in 15 minutes before it started to charge as it should.

Also these batteries do have a life span and if it's a three year old battery with many charges it could be failing meaning it just won't take a full charge.

I took this blackberry bold out of a recycle bin at my school and when i plug it into my dads bb charger the red light comes on but after 10 minutes of charging it still wont turn on.I think its a corrupt...

try this:


1. Plug wall charger into wall and then plug into blackberry
2. Take off back cover and pull the battery out (while it is plugged in still)
3. Wait 30 seconds. The red LED may remain on (tech said it didn't matter).
4. Put the battery back in and wait about 5-10 seconds and it'll begin to boot up (white screen with clock icon).

Dewalt battery charger won't charge

As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.
