Why it Does not fully charge

Have you ever let it completely discharge. Let it go say to... 5%. This type batteries for lack of a better word have memory. You must let them completely discharge a couple of times before hooking it up to the charger. Also do you have the correct ac charger that the tablet requires such as how many volts and how many mah does the tablet ac adapter need to be. Last ditch effort, I know it sound odd but plug it into a different outlet.

It won t charge since the snow storm last Thursday the battery wont stay on

Does it use an AC adapter or a USB cable to charge? The AC adapter or the USB cable could be bad. Try another cable/adapter. Does the tablet show a lightning bolt on the battery icon when you connect the charger or nothing at all? Does the tablet power up when you are connected to a power source? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then it is probably a bad battery or charging jack. If the tablet is under warranty, contact the store where you bought it or the manufacturer. If it is not under warranty, try an independent cell phone store that might be able to open it for you and see what type of battery you need to replace it. Get the battery pack model number, size, voltage and maH rating and search for a similar battery on Ebay.

Why wont my nookhd wont charge

If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.

General charging recommendations.

If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.

Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.

If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.

One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.

You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.

How do I charge the iPad battery.

USB hubs typically don't generate the 10 watts necessary to charge an iPad when it's connected to your computer. This basically means you can't use your laptop to recharge your iPad.

Apple recommends finding an AC outlet and using 10-watt power adapter that came with your iPad.

My kindle will not turn on

  1. Connect Kindle to a different outlet and/or USB port. If available, also try using a different USB cable or power adapter
  2. Verify the yellow charge light in the power switch at the base of the Kindle is on. When fully charged, the light will appear green.
  3. Restart Kindle by pressing Home > Menu > Settings > Menu and select "Restart." Is the charge light on?
  4. Is the charge light off? AC adapter needs to be replaced.
  5. Contact Amazon if under warranty if those steps don't work

?how do I charge the battery


You use one of two methods
Method 1
1. Install the battery in its compartment.
2. Plug the AC adapter

The battery will start charging, and the status light for the battery will appear amber. The light will remain amber as long as the battery is not fully charged. When the cahrge is completed, the light will turn green.

Of course, if your are using your computer while battery is being charged, it will take three to four times longer to complete the charge.

Method 2

Toshiba sells battery chargers which you can use to charge a battery outside of the computer.

Hope it helps.

Acer Travelmate C112TCi- Won't power on

Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.

The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.

Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
