The battery should last 3/4 hours without a charger.

I think tomtom are aware of a ton of units with faulty batteries / poor life span.

arrange for it to be returned asap.

My golf buddy starts reporting low battery after being on for 1/2 hour although it is fully charged

How old is it ? Rechargeable batteries will only accept approximately 1,000 charge cycles before they stop charging. As you approach this end-of-life, the charge-LIFE will also greatly decrease. Additionally, if such a device is put back on the re-charger with most of its battery-life still present, then it will tend to drain faster and faster in the future.

Blackberry 9720 suddenly went dead wont charge

Hi Michelle. I have the same phone and it happened to me a few times. On most phones the battery swells up when it reaches it's charging life end. In the 9720 the battery can still LOOK okay even though it might have reached its life-span. I eventually purchased a new battery, and wholaa, problem solved. A piece of additional advice is: Do not chat with you phone on the charger. Unplug the charger when battery is fully charged: We tend to charge the phone anytime and every time before we go to work or somewhere - you have to let the battery run flat on its own at least once a month, then start a fresh charge from fully flat to fully charged. This will prolong battery life. I a new battery does not solve the problem, have the charging pin checked out. Alternately if you know someone that has the same handset as you, ask them to stick your battery into their handset and visa versa. Hope this info help :)

The battery does not charge anymore

Usually, the battery life can (quickly) decrease if your GPS is always plugged into a power source (even when not in use).
Like all such (lithium) batteries, to keep the battery healthy, it's better to charge it fully, then use / deplete it fully (while not plugged into a power source) and repeat the charge cycle.
If your battery doesn't charge anymore, you'll just have to use the GPS while it is plugged in. If that is even not possible (because the device actually use the battery to power it, and not the direct current from the charger), you may want to consider replacing the battery. Or, replace your GPS.

Hi, I have samsung SGH - X700, my phone gets switched off automatically when i speak for 15-20 min over the phone. When i put for charging, it shows full charged in 30 min.. Could you please...

The problem is with the battery. The battery life is down.
My advice is that you purchase a new battery from a recognised store.
When you have done that, before you use the phone, charge the battery fully. Also, ensure that the supply of power is steady.
In addition, to sustain your battery life, once in a whlie, like every 2 months, fully discharge then fully recharge your battery.
This should make it last longer.

Hope this helps?

Hi I have a 2year old kodak easyshare zoom digital camera V1253, When I press the on button the camera attempt's to come on but very quickly switches it's self off again, I have replaced the battery and...

This camera takes 2 size AA batteries, preferably the longest life batteries possible. I use re-chargeable batteries, and when they have about given up the camera does the same thing; prepares to open the lens and then switches off. I am confident that you will have success with new re-chargeable batteries, and a close attention to their charge life.

Have fun using this wonderful model for recording life events. Comment on this fix for me when you are successful...

Tom tom wont stay charged what can i do

If it will not stay charged then the battery is defective, these type of batteries have an average life of 2 years, less if they are run dead allot, more if they are left on the charger and kept fully charged between uses.

My tomtom 920 keeps shuting down every me 10sec to yes or no .

If the battery is flat or dead it will never go on until you either charge the battery or change it. Batteries have a life of 2-3 years if used correctly.
That is charged using an AC source and definitely not starting the engine while the unit is plugged in.

1. Ensure that the battery is fully charged.

2. Try with different battery to determine whether the issue is with the battery or with the GPS device.

Hope this will help you.

Good Luck!!!!!!!

Hi, I was wondering why I cannot use rechargeable batteries in my camera? Everytime I put them in, the battery icon flashes as if they were dead and I know they are fully charges.

Sometimes when the battery is no longer functional, a charger will say it is fully charged but the camera knows it has no life. I experienced this with my Canon Powershot Pro and had to get a new one.

Batteries can lose their ability to recharge if they have been dropped, recharged too often when they were not fully discharged, or just plain reached the end of their life, as happens with most things.

However, if you are using ordinary rechargeable batteries (not proprietory ones), and you have tested them on another appliance and know they are good, then the problem must be with the camera.

Tomtom 720 standby

What you report is very very common. It's also common with other electronic stuff with similar type batteries. I ahve a portable DVD that charges OK 100% and will run for hours after a full charge but If I( charge it , then leave it for a day , the battery has gone flat or nearly flat . Doesnt present any problem or appear to do harm to the battery as it's been like this for about 2 years now. It's just inconvenient , thats all.
My Tomtom is the same , so I did a little modification . I used a read switch ( very tiny ) and broke into the battery cable inside the tomtom and connected the 2 resulting ends to the read switch then positioned the read switch at the back of the tomtom so it would be near to the tomtom mount when affixed . I then glued a small magnet onto the tomtom mount. The result is : The battery inside the tomtom is made disconnected when the read switch opens and it opens when its taken off the mount because it needs the magnet to be closed. ie . the read switch closed when a magnet is put near it and opens when a magnet is removed ( read switch is magneticly operated ). So now my battery doesnt drain as it has no connection to it to drain through. The tomtom will only switch on when its slotted onto it's mount . good luck.

Switch on problem

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...
