Question about SanDisk Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

How do you recharge one of the rechargeable batteries?  I'm thinking of buying one of these for my 82 year old mother who is legally blind, to listen to mp3 books-on-tape.  She doesn't have a computer, so the USB connection won't work for recharging a battery, if that's the way it's done.  I can't find any definitive explanation on this product except, "built-in rechargeable".

You can easily buy a standalone charger with a USB adapter from eBay to solve the problem. Just make sure that it is compatible withthe SanDisk MP3.

I bought a 4 pack aa nimh2700 mah brand new sit for a long time without using them now they don't charged what can i to make them work?


  • Rechargeable batteries get old and can loose effectiveness after sitting for a while. You could have a charger problem as well. If you have another charger laying around you can see if the batteries take a charge with a different charger. But, even with rechargeables, they do go stale. If you buy new rechargeables make sure they are "fresh" as buying outdated rechargeable batteries can be a waste of many as many don't work. Buy from a reputable place as well. So many rechargeables from over seas are just not worth a dang.

  • Hope this helps.

My black 360 controller with a rechargable battery, has been having 4 major problems, 1. It started disconnecting while playing Halo Reach and after. 2. My controller was not able to charge any...


Rechargeable batteries will only hold so many charges before they finally die. The controller should be fine, but your battery pack has finally died. You can get new rechargeable packs on Amazon pretty cheap, but don't buy any that seem too good to be true (like the $0.01 ones) because they are old inventory and have lost the ability to charge as well.
I think they run about $15-$20 for a new one, but it's still a better deal than needing new batteries every time your controller dies since the rechargeable ones can last for at least a couple years.

I don't know how to recharge the battery


Just to be clear: you can either buy the rechargeable battery or regular batteries of the same type. I'd rather get the rechargeable battery, saves a TON of money.
To recharge a battery, you need a charger for the battery - they come in plugs for the wall or for the car. Just place the battery in the charger, plug it in. It depends on the brand, but usually there is a little button that will glow red but when it is fully charged it will change to green.
I'll put a picture on here for you. The battery itself is "KLIC-8000". 12_19_2011_7_12_37_am.jpeg

I need to buy a drill/driver for DIy at home, I am medium skilled handy. Do the batteries in the battery operated ones die if not used/recharged regularly. What are the medium to good avilable.


The battery tools are the way to go, the batteries last a couple years or more. I have a couple that are almost 5 years old. For the home and light construction I would go with the Ryobi 18 volt. The price is very good and they are very dependible. Think about a set (drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, and flash light) they will all come in handy around the home and sets are cheeper. You can find them at Home Depot

Uniden cordless handsets don't hold charge


Have you tried replacing the batterys with new rechargables? if not open up the back and replace old batterys with new ones, just see if it works with a normal non rechargable batterys if it does buy some new rechargable, other than that your base i.e. charger may be faulty most likely it is the batterys.

Camera Wont turn on


It really could be the batteries. You may want to buy a very good pair of high power Duracell or Energisers first just to make sure that the problem is not with the camera.

I bought my mother this HDC-1061E camera and it was fine for not very long until it seemed the batteries that came in the camera box ran out. A short time. And I offerred a new pair of batteries I found lying around, they were cheap batteries I would use for something not requiring much power. And they brought the camera on but it went off within a second or two each time.

Though then I recalled an 8.2 mexapixel camera I bought for myself last year made by Kodak, and I found that some cheap batteries would not even turn that camera on. And expensive duracells didn't actually last long at all.

What's the solution? Buy a couple of 4 packs of NiMh (2700, no less) batteries (UniRoss is a good buy for this, around £9.99 a 4 pack in Amazon), and a recharger separately. If you're thinking about the environment you should think about a solar recharger though that will recharge a good amount slower than recharging from the mains (there are some more expensive units, if you look around, that offer solar and mains recharging).

I suggest two 4 packs so you have the batteries you are using, another set to exchange for a long day out (maybe not so long in fact, these cameras eat batteries so quickly), a further pair of emergency batteries, and then a pair kept always at hand at home if you need to load fresh batteries at any time. Recharge as soon as used.
A cheapish mains recharger won't cost more or much more than £13 to £20 and may esaily be a few pounds less. Solar rechargers are available in this bracket too, usually a little more expensive than mains ones. If you buy the battery I have specified this should work fine.

With a fully recharged battery my computer battery only last a few minutes. Should I buy a new battery?


Seems like the battery is just old and leeking power. I suggest you take it to a computer shop nearby, ask them if anything can be done about it, and buy a new one if they can't fix it. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Rechargeable batterie won't work in my Camera.


Not sure what camera you have, but some cameras require a very steady power supply voltage. Also not sure how old your rechargeable batteries are either, but batteries (alkaline and rechargeable decay over time. With the rechargeable ones, the more you use it, the less it can charge to full capacity over time. For example, if your rechargeable battery is supposed to charge up to 1.5V, over a period of a year with constant recharges, you can test with a volt meter and see that it never really goes back up to 1.5V, but more like 1.48V, 1.45V or maybe even 1.4V.

Depending on the camera or other item you use rechargeable batteries on, it can adapt to low voltages with special circuitry inside (but only to a certain limit, when a battery is old, it is old).

You can try buying a new set of rechargeable batteries and use it few times and see if this fixes the issue. If not, your camera may be faulty and just draining the battery (not too likely, but it happens).
