That battery LED shows up when you are connected to AC power. When the battery is charging, the light is up. However, when it is fully charged, it will change color or disappear or does not light. But I am begging you to not use your laptop always with the AC power so as not to destroy your battery. When you are at home, plug your laptop to charge but dont open it. When it is fully charged, remove the battery and turn it on while the battery is out. It is the safest way to conserve and lengthen the life of your battery. Use only your battery when you are in places where there is no power outlet or when you are on the go.
Regards!

Cracked it! Instructions and website are useless!
What it does not tell you to do is:-
1. plug in wireless usb part and let windows install.
2. put batteries in mouse, it turns on automatically but turn it off by pressing the button underneath for 3 - 5 seconds.
3. Press the button on the wireless usb stick until the green light on the stick comes on. When you release the button it stays on for about 10 seconds. In the time that the green light is on turn on the mouse with a short press on the button underneath to register with the wireless usb stick.
4. Well it worked with mine after I figured it out - no thanks to the instructions. tried on vista ultra and xp home.

Inspiron runs on ac power but not battery


Sounds like you have a faulty ac adapter or jack on the laptop and its not charging the battery fully. More like a trickle charge. I would recommend leaving the laptop on default power settings or the best power settings and see if their is a differance in life or either shutdown the laptop and let it charge until the light shows fully charged.

T20 batteries wont stay charged


It might be that you are using older batteries. However, you should try dimming your backlight to the lowest possible setting and performing any other power-saving actions such as limiting the processor's power (if available on your laptop.) Hope this helps.

Battery Won't Calibrate nor Hold Charge


TRY PUTTING THE BATTERY IN A ZIPLOC BAG AND LEAVE IN THE FREEZER OVER NIGHT. THE NEXT DAY TAKE IT OUT & LET IT WARM TO ROOM TEMP, WIPING OFF ANY CONDENSATION. THIS MAY PERMIT IT TO CHARGE. THIS IS A DESIGN PROBLEM WITH THE BATTERIES THAT ACER BUYS FROM WHOEVER (MAYBE FROM CHINA??), WHICH ALLOWS THE BATTERY TO SELF-DISCHARGE ALL THE WAY WHEN IT SITS FOR A WHILE.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THE FREEZER TREATMENT WORKS BUT IT DOES. I DO KNOW THAT FREEZING RE-CHARGEABLE BATTERIES THAT ARE ALREADY FULLY CHARGED ENABLES THEM TO HOLD THE CHARGE A LONG TIME - I DO THIS ALL THE TIME WITH NICADS, NICKEL-METAL HYDRIDES, ETC.

HOPE THIS HELPS & APPARENTLY WE NEED TO LEAVE THESE THINGS ON CHARGE ALL THE TIME. :-(

Battery back up is limited to 1 hour only


Did you do a full cycle charge when you got the Laptop? When you buy the Laptop you have to use the computer on battery till the battery dies and then charge battery for 12 hours and you repeat that another time. Most likely your battery it is damaged. Maybe you call the company and they might replace it for you.
