It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totally shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunately that those batteries cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more. The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermarket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrosion. You can build your own battery for a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the lithium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks.Follow the below link for a step by step on how to build your own battery

How do I know when my phone is charged or charging?


chances are your battery is toaste, most are lythium ion bateries. oncve the charge is brought down so far, the battery will not have enouph power to transmit a signal to the charger to tell it that it is conected and to charge. i personaly hate buying batteries. there is a fix but its for sure. iff you cna find another battery, (normal battery like a 9volt or a aa,aaa,c, or D cell,) you can can manualy transfer power to the lythium batery to give it enouph charge toi register that it is there to the charger. try taking the positive side of the good battery and ,with a small wire, conecting it to the negitive side of the dead battery, and fron the negitive side of the good battery to the positive side if the cell battery, for about 30 sec,. then place the cell battery back in the phone and see iff it will charge...im assuming you have completly dried and ventalated your phone....good luck!

How to charge new battery in my laptop


as i do not know what laptop we are talking about here i asume its not a notebook
if it is the time is slightly lower (6-8 hours)
a normal lap top 10 - 12 hours.
some super batery laptops come with an own (long) guide how to keep the batery alive.

to keep the batery alive a long period of time charge it from 50% not when its at critical.

If u can take out the batery when you are using cable and its fully charged it also has a longer life time. or just take out the cable when its at 100% and recharge it when it gets to 50%

dont have your computer in the lap it can over heat the computer/batery and the lifte time gets even lower.

The batery of my toyota highlander hybrid is too low; how can I conect other batery for to solve the problem?


You don't. If your battey is running low than run your car. A 2009 should not have a battery that is running low on charge. If the battery is not being charged by the charging system than bring the car back to the dealer from which you purchased it.

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Batery hang problem


batteries have a charge memory in the, when you purchase a new battery the best thing to do is to fully drain the battery before charging it up, this will tell the battery that it needs full charge, if you charge the battery before this it will only charge the battery to a certain percentage.
what you need to do now is find a way to fully discharge the batteries

kind regards

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
