How to order a lithium ni-cd rechargeable battery for a Mansfield Dual Head Drill Model 11-707? Please help and advise.

Battery is either ni-cad (nickel cadmium), Ni-mh (nickel metal hydride) or Li (lithium ion)
I do not know what the original battery was. You may be able to obtain a Li version but may need a different charger as charging rates for each type vary.

My Euro Pro X has been packed away for a few years in storage. When I plug it in, does it take a while before I see an indicator light for it to be charging?

If it has been in storage a long time and the battery is a Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride battery, it will be ruined. You will probably have to fit a new one.

Microphone drains batteries even when off.

If you are using Nickel-Metal Hydride, rechargeable batteries, they are not designed to hold a charge for a week---just a couple of days if that. They are meant to be continuously charged or when charged, used immediately; best use for cameras/flash.

I charged the battery and now I receive the following message on the camera display "for use with compatable battery only" then the camera shuts down.

Make, model?

Some camera's have a setting in the menu, to swich them between, Alkaline, NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) and NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries.

Well i tried to take a picture and i took it and then it turned off once i took the picture

Sounds like the batteries.

Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.

They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)

The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.

Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:

Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)

The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.

Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.

Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.

The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,

Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.

Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.

Good luck with your Digital Camera.

Won't charge

2 screws hold the shaver together. The second one is under the trimmer (open your trimmer).

As I am an electronics hobbyist, I am able to unsolder the 2 nicad batteries. It is a bit of a trick to pop this thing apart though, but can be done. See comments from another guy who stated it well...

The batteries are most absolutely 100% replaceable, though I do *not* recommend you try unless you are an electronics hobbyist/electrical engineer/ham radio operator/genius. This requires the ability to work with delicate electronic components, solder, and desolder.

In case you are not familiar, "planned obsolescence" is all the rage these days. The definition is quite simple. Literally, it means that major consumer electronics companies plan products to fail in a given amount of time, to increase their profits. Lovely, huh? Modern battery chemistry for consumer grade rechargeables is Nickel Metal Hydride. These batteries do *not* have a memory which affects charge cycles. The older technology is Nickel Cadmium, which is dangerous for the environment and develops a memory, impacting the amount of charge the cells can hold over time. Philips intentionally continues to use Nickel Cadmium cells instead of the better Nickel Metal Hydride. They also make it extremely difficult to replace the cells; that is, they build these brushes with "planned obselescence" in mind.

If you are extremely careful, you may try to replace your batteries. When your brush no longer chargers to your satisfaction, VERY gently pry open the handle with a flat-bladed screwdriver, after running down the battery. Once it is open, you will see two "AA" Nickel Cadmium cells soldered into place. This is when you find your ham radio operator, electronics hobbyist, electrical engineer, or genius friend. Or, if you are one of the above...

Carefully remove the existing Ni-Cad cells, and recycle them properly. Find some high capacity Sanyo Nickel Metal Hydride cells, and put them in instead. Reseal the whole deal with epoxy, and see how it turns out.

Remember, in doing this, if you mess up, you had nothing to lose. Let me add here that if your dog turns in a squirrel or your ear turns to pudding in attempting this, I am *not* responsible!

Battery will not continue charge after a few seconds

Run the battery all the way down until completely dead and then try recharging. Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries don't develop a "memory" quite like the old nickel cadmium (Ni Cad) batteries, but this seems to work when my cell phone won't hold a charge for more than a day.

Batteries always low

If you're using regular alkaline batteries that?s fairly common. If you want longer life most people purchase rechargeable nickel-metal hydride batteries and a charger. Depending on the camera you?ll get 40 or more flash images out of a charging. I have two sets, one in the camera and one in the charger. Expect to pay about $5 to $10 for a set of four and around $10 or $20 for a charger, make sure its for nickel-metal hydride batteries and not the old style nickel-cadmium. Good luck and don?t forget to rate this post.
