    HI, Charging a depleted batteryIf you have not used or charged your MP3player for a long time, the player's battery can become depleted ordischarged. When the player is connected to a PC, Windows may notimmediately detect the player as being connected. It also might notshow any sign of activity (with the exception of the power LED). Another symptom of a depleted battery is that the player turns off immediately when it is switched on. To charge a depleted battery, follow these instructions:

    Turn off the player.
    Connect the player directly to a USB port located at the back of the PC with the supplied cable.

    Avoidconnecting the MP3 player to USB hubs located in on the keyboard,monitor or other accessories. Also avoid using the USB hubs on thefront of the PC.
    Close all Creative applications and Windows Media Player.
    Let the player charge for at least 60 minutes.
    If it is available, download and install the latest firmware for your player at www.creative.com/support/downloads. For more information about the firmware update, please refer to its Web Release Notes.Ifthe firmware update does not detect the player, unplug the player andplug it in again. You can also try a different USB port.
    Do not disconnect the player once the firmware update is in progress.Whenthe firmware update is complete, the player will start chargingautomatically. If the player does not indicate that it is chargingafter 60 minutes, reset the player. thank you for using fixya,rate my answer, vijay

Stanley 450 amp how long does it takebto charge


Sealed lead acid batteries are at the heart of most jumpstarters, mobile power supplies and equipment with standby capability. Such batteries arrive in a wide variety of qualities and while not particularly unreliable they do tend to fail suddenly.

Most often it is leaving them in a discharged state for more than a few weeks that hastens the death of all lead acid batteries. Even leaving one in a half charged state for as little as a month will permanently damage the battery causing it to have a reduced capacity.



The instruction leaflets supplied with such equipment invariably say recharge should take place periodically and after every use.

Usually there is an indicator light to show when charging has been successful but an overnight charge should be sufficient for a simple top-up charge and perhaps 24 hours for a periodic charge.



Use a digital voltmeter to check the battery voltage after it has been off-charge for 24 hours. A young healthy 12 volt battery will read 13.2 volts. An older but still usable example will read perhaps 12.7. 12.5 volts could be usable but the battery is definitely past its best.

A 12 volt battery that has a voltage of 12 volts is only half charged and is practically useless...

Less than 12 volts after charging and it is ready for recycling.

I had not used the chair in 2 months, when i charged the battery in my electric wheelchair, the lights near the top of the joy stick shows its fully charge, but when i unplug the cord, it go's...


Yep It sure does Why didn't you charge the chair for 2 months? Charge at least once a week if you don't use it daily. Always break in the new batteries by using the chair daily for 10-15 days charging everynite then charge once a week if it sits for that long without use. Always put up fully charged. Do this and your batteries should last 3 -4 years Charge overnite if you use daily and never charge more than 24 hours Good Luck

First time charging up of archos 5,it has now been charging for about 14-15 hours. but the green light did'nt blink yet. it says after fully charge, the green light blinking. what can be the promlem about...


@wilkerwkocer 

On an Archos, battery is fully charge when the CHG LED light is flashing, while that light is ON all the time, the unit is still charging.

Now, in order to charge your Archos you must leave it on Suspended mode, by holding the Power button for about 4-5 seconds until it says "Suspending", DO NOT leave it on completely "Shutdown" mode, or your battery will never charge, and you are also risking the life of your battery by doing so.

So in other words:

1) On a PC via USB it should take around 8 hours to charge, while connected to an Archos mini dock, battery dock, or DVR Station, it should take around 3 hours to fully charge.

2) Leave your unit completely "Shutdown" (hold the Power button and wait 10 secs. or so until it says "Shutting down" and let it go off.

3) Connect it to your power source, either USB on computer, or external charging device as mentioned above, it will come back on, the two LED lights CHG and Power will come on, leave it like that, and after a few minutes the unit will go into Standby/Suspended mode by itself, and there is when you are charging your battery the right way.

3) Wait 8 hours if connected to your PC, or 3 hours if connected to an external power supply (as described above). If still after being in suspended mode (not completely off) your CHG light isn't blinking after the 8 hours on PC, 3 hours on external power supply, then suspect your battery is defective.

In that case, if the unit is still under warranty contact Archos, if it is out of warranty. If it isn't under warranty, you can buy a replacement battery on eBay and either replace it yourself, or find someone with the technical skill to do it for you.

I hope this helped you.

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.
