If it's older it will suffer poor battery only due to age... other than that... this guide will help you get the best life you can out of your Zune.

There are ways to change the battery inside the Zune to a more powerful beast... but that voids terms and conditions... so I will not elaborate on it.

Watch taking 14 hours to charg


I made the mistake of purchasing a Citizen automatic rechargeable watch that is supposed to recharge with any light source. Not true.
It must be in daylight or else it will stop working.
It was left on the window sill for 24hours before any signs of life!

Tip

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

Using wrong adapter on my Gemmy Animated santa , What will this cause Because I am having problems but some things work? But the Hips won't move . I am using a 12v adapter but it is suppose to have a 9 v...


Using the wrong adapter will likely shorten Santa's life span. It is best to use the recommended adapter because using the wrong one may have fried his hips among other things.

How long must a battery be on charge for it to be fully charged.


2 hours is enough for a battery to be completely charged...

Once the battery is charged you can remove the power supply and use the laptop till the battery drains up to 10% to 14%......
This will increase the life time of battery... If you keep on charging the battery continuously when using your laptop, then the battery life will be shortened very soon...
So charge and drain the battery properly... This will increase the life time of battery...

After charging the wii remotes in the base until


I don't think you are doing anything wrong, just the setup you are useing is'nt as effective as you would like.

I use the energizer rechargeable (NiMH) batteries with the energizer 15 minute charger. The other batteries and chargers just don't seem to work as well. I get several hours of play time on a single charge, where I was only getting about 1/2 hour to an hour with the others. **No I am not a paid endorser, I just use and like the product!**

Hope this helps, please let me know how you end up or if I can help more.
