Is it my battery or bad system?

My zen micro lasts about 1-2 hours on a fully charged battery, I even bought a new battery, but it's the same. Is there something I can do to remedy this?

I had the same problem a few years ago. Creative said that it was due to connecting the player to a lead that was plugged in to a socket which was already turned on. They recommended pluging in the player, then turning on the socket. They also had downloadable firmware to fix this problem.

Good luck.

Hi there i just bought ASUS,X42 series laptop but it seems the battery can only last for an hour.please i want it to last longer,how many hours should charge cos it a new o laptop i just bought..thanks

The battery should be charged overnight ie for approx. 10 hours.
When the battery runs down then charge it up again until it is fully charged, you may need to do this several times until the battery reached it normal capacity.

How long should my battery last? I bought an nintendo DS lite and I forgot to ask?

Hello there, the Nintendo DS Lite has four levels of brightness. The battery will last 15-19 hours on the lowest settings, and 5-8 hours on the brightest.This can also vary depending on the type of game activity."
So the DS should last the whole time in even on the highest brightness settings, if fully charged. Nintendo states that it takes 3 hours to fully charge the DS. 

hope this helped, also this site will also help you to get your ds battery to last for longer…

good luck

MY Zen WONT TURN ON. It also wont charge.

Connect the player to a USB port on the back of a desktop PC.. Check the display for the charging icon . As the display times out after a few seconds, press any button on the player to reactivate the display. If the battery is fully depleted, the charging icon may not be displayed. Cup the player in your hands to check that the blue power LED behind the Play/Pause and Options buttons is blinking on and off repeatedly. This indicates that the player is successfully charging. After 1 hour of charging, power on the unit to activate the display. The charging icon should be displayed. Allow the player to charge for at least 6 hours. During this time, if charging from a USB port, please ensure your PC does not enter a power conservation mode (Standby, Sleep, or Hibernate) as this will interrupt charging. If the player does not indicate a charge, or will not power on after at least 6 hours of charging, please contact Customer Support.
You might try updating your ZEN V or ZEN V Plus firmware to take advantage of new features and functionality.

This is the second Ni-MH battery I've bought that I've used infrequently over the last year and now it doesn't hold much of a charge after I charge it. Some people say I shouldn't leave it on the charger...

Any battery should start charging for over 8 hours and then it goes down to 4 hours, however no one working on a job wait 4 hours to get the batteries charged so they start cutting time and for that it get less and less charges inside and after a while it refuse to take any charge..Drain your batteries totally, charge them over night, see if that work if not just use them tell you are done with them, and get new equipments not new battery. When buying new equipments and charging them remember never use it until you fully charge it for 8 hours and not even use it for a second before it’s fully charged... Let me know if that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so I can keep providing this service to everyone and improve on it. God bless

Batter life in the second season

When batteries are only used seasonally, and they are stored, they can become damaged from weather or from storing them when they are not fully charged. In general, batteries used seasonally will have a shorter lifespan, so it sounds like you likely need a new battery. Check out for a replacement, and be sure to charge it fully before storing.

Zen Vision M battery not charging

The problem was partially solved in that I put my old battery back in and at least it charged properly. I did receive a new battery from BatteryMill and I fitted it and left it charging for 5 hours. However, when I unplugged it to see if it had charged at all it did the low battery thing and then when I tried to recharge it the battery fully charged symbol ame up. I suspect that had I left the new battery charging for say 24 hours it might have charged fully. However, I have decided to send my batteries back and get a refund. The problem must be something to do with a battery memory problem.
