Kingston KPEX100/1GB Battery Prob

The battery on this unit no longer holds a charge. It is out of the 1 year warranty, and Kingston says they do not offer a replacement battery. This makes the unit throw away in just a little over a year. This pretty much sucks in my opinion.

I could install a replacement battery if it were available. Do you have any suggestions for a source for this battery? It looks like a one-of-a-kind battery.

Thanks for your help.

Run your batteries on a battery reconditioner analyzer, this can give you a diagnosis and recondition the battery.
Also, with Impres batteries you can use an Impres battery reader to find out more info about the battery including capacity, age and number of charge cycles.

If the battery is under 1 year old it is still under warranty. Contact your dealer.

Best regards.

I also have lost my manual for a Brinks Digital Timer Model 44-1073. How do I get a copy of the manual for this little thing. I downloaded produtools. com but no help.

Brinks is Hampton products:

This product has 3 star rating at Home depot.
Timer has 1 year limited warranty so expect immediate failure to 3 year lifespan, or sometimes longer until internal rechargeable battery is no longer able to hold charge.
For indoor plug-in timer with lifetime warranty, Intermatic DT620 costs $2-8 more from Amazon.

My phone battery goes flat after 4 hours, i have the powersave on, bluetooth off, plane off , i have replaced the battery and its still the same

Oh dear. 4 hours isn't going to get you far thru the day. With the battery in fair health it should still last you all day with regular use (at least). Due to the nature of rechargeable batteries, the battery life with gradually get lower as time goes on. As a rule, it should still hold 85% of it's original charge after 1 year.
If you are getting less than this and you have had it less than 1 year, the manufacturer (LG) should replace it under it's warranty (in some countries you may have longer)
Further warranty information, and to submit a warranty claim, Visit the LG support page or refer to the original manual. LG KU990 Support:
Batteries are also available at amazon and eBay (be careful to avoid fakes)
Good luck

My dv4 1548dx battery will not retain it's charge. My warranty just expired, but i believe that this is a hardware malfunction. I've only had it for 1 year and 1 month. Can I get a new battery for free?


Batteries are not covered by the same warranty. It is shorter and HP batteries often have this problem of not holding charge after only few months. If you used it for more than 1 year you're kind of lucky!

Pretty sure you will not get a replacement for free. Check your documentation for battery warranty.

Hope this helps!

While on Battery at airport, it went off. Pushed

Try removing the battery from the unit and re-connect.
Do this without the adaptor plugged in.
Next, plug in your a/c adaptor and see if the power light and battery starts to charge.
You may want to try at last resort, after the unit is running without the battery, install you battery and see if the charge light comes up.
Sometimes, just removing the battery and re-installing it cures the problem.
If you do not recv. a charge light and the unit will not start, HP has offered a extended 1 year warranty on top of you the original 1 year warranty.
Contact customer support by email and log your problem.
Hope this info has helped.

Out of range, buttons don't respond, battery won't hold charge

when you have a problem with anything under warranty, you take it back for new units or a refund and anything under 12 months old is under warranty
if you have lost the receipts get a copy of your bank statements as that shows where it was bought , how much it cost and when
That is a legal document to trigger a warranty action or refund

Hello babytiff,

Like all batteries, rechargable battery inside the iPod has a limited lifespan. The amount of play time that you get in between charges will gradually diminish over the life of the battery until youn get to a point where the iPod will no longer hold a charge.

If your unit is less then a year old the battery would be covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty and you should click the link and follow Apple's normal procedure for getting service on your MP3 player.

If you are outside of the manufacturer's warranty (which seems likely since you are posting here) then you have fewer options. Apple does offer a replacement programs for iPods with defective batteries. For a fee (around $60) you can trade your iPod in to get a refurbished unit with a new battery. For details on this program go to:

Or, you could try to replace the battery pack. The internal battery is generally NOT considered to be user replaceable and I would not recommend attempting it unless you have some experience and are comfortable repairing delicate electronic devices. Taking apart and working on an MP3 plauer is not for the inexperienced or faint of heart. If you do have the requisite know how you can find several companies selling aftermarket battery kits for the iPod just by browsing around on the web.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use us."
