Gripfitter is incorrect, that charger is made to charge in 15 minutes. It has a cooling fan and when batteries are inserted a red light comes on and the fan starts. When light goes out and fan stops, the batteries are charged. (light should not blink as that indicates one or more of the batteries has a problem)

Micromax x272 charging show but not charging

Hi, so it telling you it's charging however the scooter shows no charge once the charger is disconnected ???

1. First of all , is it possible to try another charger ? or test on another scooter.

2. If the charger proves to be okay, it's starting to look like the fault is with the batteries themselves, batteries can fool certain chargers into thinking they being charged when it fact the resistance inside the batteries have become too great.. They need replacing,...

3. Another issue could be the charger socket or the charging circuit to the batteries..
( is there a fuse ? )

Do i leave my radio on the charger all the time?

You didn't say what kind of radio or charger. If it's a "smart charger" and the radio has Lithium or NiMH batteries, it's not a problem. You should, however use the radio without charging it occasionally until the batteries have been mostly (but not fully) discharged. Ultimately that will give you the best life from your batteries.

If you're just using a "wall wart" charger. Only charge the batteries when they need charging, or before you know you're going to use the radio for a period near the maximum time it's rated to operate.
You probably ought to consider getting a battery pack that can accept "AA" batteries as a "spare". You can find AA batteries everywhere, and although they're not rechargeable (for the most part), they'll last longer than your rechargeable batteries - for one use. There's a reason the "Wildland Fire" people use nothing but standard AA batteries in their radios.

How do i know if my jazzy power charger is working

Without the charger the batteries would go dead. You could put a voltmeter across the batteries and you should read more than 28 VDC while charging.

How do you charge your wii console

The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.

  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    What does the flashing red light mean?!?

    The flashing red probably means that the charger is working correctly and is indeed charging the batteries. The light should turn green when charging is complete after anything from 1 to 16 hours depending on how this charger works.

    Do the following test: Fit the charger with your batteries and connect it to the mains. After 1 hour check if there is a detectable temperature rise in the batteries. You can do this without interrupting the charge cycle by touching the cells with the back of your fingers. If the temperature is still low, let it continue for another 15 hours or so, checking every now & then for any temperature increase. Should the temperature rise more than a few degrees, then stop the charging by removing the charger from the mains. Should the red lamp remain flashing after 16 hours, then I suspect you to have a defective charger.

    I have been use sony cycle Energy Rechargable batteries AA 2000mAh. They are properly charging. But now I'am purchased another sony cycle Energy Reechargable batteries AA 3000mAh. But they are no charging...

    It's likely your charger. You probably own a "fast charger" but it's also probably designed for your lower mAh power batteries. The charger does not understand the power difference of your newer high-capacity battery, thus it is automatically stopping the charge before completion sensing something is wrong. You'll need to either purchase a newer charger, clearly stated capable of charging 3000mAh batteries. An alternative is to use an older "trickle" charger (one of those that charges at very low power slowly overnight). These don't automatically turn off when the battery reaches full charge, thus will charge your battery.

    My chair is not charging. We are getting 34 volts

    Hi. A voltage of 34 volts is way to high. Most chargers are limited to about 28.5 volts. You will quickly dry out your batteries at 34 volts. I would say your charger is very faulty.
    You have probably already destroyed your batteries at that charge rate.
    Are the batteries new or a couple of years old.
    I serviced a machine last year, that, according to the owner, had been through 6 sets of batteries in 4 years. His charger had the same problem as yours.
    Good luck. Neil.

    I would go to Radio Shack and have them explain the proper charging procedure as well as inquire about the red and green lights as not all chargers go green when fully charged-Normally red indicates a charging action and if a charger has no fully charged light, then a required charge time period is noted in the instructions. Batteries can be ruined by over charging!
