My kindle fire does not keep its charge. I can use it one time and during the ap it goes dead


If you charge the device fully, meaning 100%, and while using it with a simple app it doesn't last 2 hrs. then you need to replace the battery. Next time it goes dead, don't turn it on, instead plug the charger and let it charge to 100% while the device is off. Once is fully charge, use it as you would normally do. But still,it needs a new battery.

Help!!! Is my laptop battery broken?


99% charge is still pretty good so I'm not sure whether the HP health check is accurate. The only way to check is to unplug the mains voltage and see how long the laptop goes until it shuts down. This will help REFORM the battery to a degree and MAY restore your missing 1% of charge capacity. If the battery lasts more than 1.5 hours it's still pretty useable - why spend? Also if you do decide to buy a brand new battery and the old one lasts the best part of an hour you could keep it as a backup. Good luck.

Battery drains in 30mins


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My acer aspire one battery doesn't work. How do I check if the battery works or not


If you want to know if your battery works or not. Heres a simple way.

Use your laptop without using the AC charger. If the Laptop stays on for atleast 30mins and above that means your battery is ok. specially if the laptop stays on for 4-5 hours, your battery is working 100%.

Hope my solution help.

My dell 1545 inspiron wont operate on the battery works fine on charger and battery icon shows 100% and charging but as soon as power removed laptop immediately powers down. physically measured battery...


I think that if it's 100% it should say that it's fully charged.There could be something wrong there.

My computer blinks with a red icon on the printer saying that the it's recommended the battery be replaced when the battery goes bad. It shows 100% charge as well.

I just got a 9 cell battery off of Ebay for my Acer Aspire that lasts 3 or 4 hours and is a little big, but fits the contacts and locks on.
