I have had the KRZR for 15 months and I have used two batteries in it. You do not have to worry about anything like that. They don't have a memory. Just charge it when you want to.

2003 Jimmy 4.3 Battery drained down every few days and had to be charged. Today the battery was dead. Replaced it.


check charging rate on new battery with engine running, should be 13.7 +.
if not, check alternator.
if alternator checks out, may be a drain somewhere, light on someplace, etc.

What To Do When Your Phone Does Not Turn On


The simplest reason causing a phone not turn on is a dead or drained battery. It happens when the phone gets immersed in water, dropped or allowed to fully drain the battery. The symptom is phone not turning on and not charging the battery. When that happens, make sure first that the battery is not just dead or drained before you send the phone to the service center for repair or before you buy a new battery. You may decide to send it right away only to find out the battery is simply dead/drained or buy a new battery only to find out the phone is dead.

The first thing you can do is borrow a friend’s known good battery similar to yours and try it in your phone. If the phone turns on, you are pretty sure your battery is dead or drained; otherwise, it's time to send it for repair.

When it is verified that the battery is dead or drained or if you don’t have someone to borrow from, try to revive the battery before you buy a new one. You just need a 9-volt battery, a 6-12 volt power supply, or a DC adaptor (6 or 9 volts) and a set of wires.

Connect the set of wires to the terminals of the 9-volt battery, power supply, or DC adaptor whichever is available.

Look for the polarity markings on your battery and connect the other ends of the wires to the battery terminals in the same polarity as the source above. The positive terminal is marked (+) while the negative is marked (-). Do this for 10 to 60 seconds or until the battery gets slightly warm. Do not use this procedure to fully charge the battery.

Insert the revived battery in your phone and charge it until it is fully charged. If the battery works well and does not discharge easily, you don't have to replace it.

In the event that it is not verified whether the phone still turns on or not using a known good battery and the battery is revived but the phone is still not charging the battery, the phone is dead; send it to the service center for repair.

Lenovo y550 laptop, battery shows fully charged, everytime i un-plug the charger,system shuts down, and won't start back up until i plug it into an outlet


Quite simply, the battery is dead. What is happening, is that the battery is charging, but the cells cannot retain the charge and it drains straight away. You need a new battery

I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.


The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

The battery drains far too quickly on my Samsung G600 (have tried new batteries but same problem). Any idea what is causing the power drain?


In many instances, some phones run a lot of applications in the background unfortunately, in most cases of a fast battery drain, it is due to high screen brightness or a long screen time-out. Try turning down your screen brightness to a lower setting (one which you can still see without straining) and check to see how long your screen turns off. Some phones default to 30 secs or 1 minute. Use a lower setting if possible.

Also, cell phone batteries are lithium batteries. At first use and then on a periodic basis, try draining the battery until the phone will no longer turn on and only then plug your charger in. If you plug the charger in before it is dead the battery will not be used to its fullest capacity. Hope this helps!

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

How to maximize battery life of a laptop


In addition to all these excellent suggestions don't plug your computer in with the battery installed every time you need to use it. Most manufacturers don't recommend uninstalling the battery (unplugging it) while using it. The truth is, though, this repeated charge and discharge cycle from plugging in your laptop will significantly drain the life of your battery because it is only good for so many charge cycles. So if you're in a situation where you don't need to use the battery unplug it and just use AC power. Also don't always run the battery completely dead when using it. It is best for modern li-ion batteries to be charged to full when they still have 15-20% power still left in them. About every 10 discharge cycles it is best to run the battery completely dead as this will reset the battery meter in the computer so that it can read the available charge more accurately.

Charging battery unit turns off as soon as I shut down car and takes a very long time to find sateilites


I have the same issue. I did a diagnostics and found an error code that says "Abnormal Powerdown". Im trying to charge it via my USB right now, but it hasnt held a charge and its been charging since 4pm (7hrs). Im having the same symptoms as you, and am told that when the battery is dead, other things dont work, even when plugged in. Its worth a shot. If not, you can get a new c330 for 120 on the net.
