I bought a makita tool set from Home Depot not even three months ago and i just tried to charge my batteries and the red and green light is coming on for both batteries. Is it possible both batteries went...

Hi David, there are 2 things you can do.
1) If you still have the reciept, I would take it back to Home Depot and attempt an exchange, assuming the tools look like they only have half an hour on them. That will be the quickest, if it works.
2) Follow the link below, type in your zip code and take it into your nearest Authorized Warranty Center. They will also require a receipt.

At this point it is irrelevant what is wrong with it if its under warranty. If it ends up not being under warranty for whatever reason, your assumptions are correct. It could very well be both batteries at the same time, or a faulty charger. Big box stores like Home Depot dont recycle stock the way they should. I went to a local Home Depot and found a DeWalt battery with a date code that was 4 years old.

I hope this helps, and good luck.

It sounds like your swimming pool light is not holding a charge. This normally indicates that the batteries have expired their useful life and need to be changed. Even rechargeable batteries are not designed for permanent use.

According to the owner's manual for this pool light, a blinking red light indicates that an error has occured during charging. It says that if you have unplugged and tried again and still have a blinking red light, the condition of the battery is questionable and it might need to be replaced. The only place that you can purchase these replacement batteries is from an authorized pool store or directly from the manufacturer. You will not be able to replace the batteries yourself.

I have a ka08 cell phone and my battery went dead and now it will not recharge. I hav d right charger and it will not come on at all. I only used my phone a few times.

I had two black batteries that came with the phone (KA08) two years ago, and I bought another 2 white ones later. I kept them in storage last whole year, and when I took them out recently, 1 black and 1 white were still working, but the other two seemed not. However, after a persistent changing from the working to the non-working ones, I seem to revive the other two also. Therefore, the 4 are all working now. If there was any trick to that, I think all I did was while the screen was flashing, I switch the non-working ones in to sort of trigger the electrons if that was what. There was actually some hissing sound coming from the plugged phone without any battery, so I would not leave the phone plugged to the USB without the battery in it.

Where is the time/date battery located? My 635

If you are using the batteries that came with the camera or just regular or Lithium batteries, this could be your problem.
At Walmart or any discount store, buy 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries with the charger. Believe me, years ago when I bought my first digital camera, the same thing happened to me. I was only getting a few pictures and the batts went dead, especially if I was using the LCD screen and not the view finder, or using the zoom which both of them take alot of power.
NiMH batteries are made to last using when using digital hardware.
Hope this works for you!!!!

Battery life

The rechargeables are only meant to last a couple years maximum (pretty good that you got three out of them). Also rechargeable NiMH's have approximately 5 times the power of standard alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries should only be used in emergencies in digital cameras as they will only last for a short while before they are drained (as you've discovered).

The obvious solution is that it's time to consider purchasing a new set of rechargeable NiMH batteries. Look on the package for a power rating of at least 2,500 mah. Avoid batteries that do not list the power rating as they are generally inferior batteries.

Glowbuoy flashes on and off after charging,hardly been used

If your swimming pool light is not holding a charge, it could be that your battery pack is defective. For this particular light, you cannot change the batteries yourself. It is designed so that the housing cannot be opened by the owner. You would need to take it to a pool professional and have them change your rechargeable batteries.

My braun plusonic wasable 549 class 2 will not hold a caharge i bought it 5 monthes ago 

You may have ended up getting an older model even though you bought it 5 months ago. The rechargeable batteries lose the ability to recharge after some time (usually a few years). You may still be under warranty with Braun, so check.
