Rio Karma Battery

My Karma works fine, I have had it for several years and now the battery life is down to 1 or 2 hours. How do I get a replacement battery with instructions or where can I send it to have the battery replaced?

Try looking at Ebay item # 350057466979 or simply search for rio karma battery and you will find what you need. Replacing is as simple as taking some screws off and opening the rio. Don't have someone else do it because it is a simple thing that won't be worth paying someone else to do it.

The Most Important Considerations of Using Laptop Battery


1, when no external power supply situation, if the working conditions at the time slot being less than PCMCIA cards, it is recommended to remove the card first to extend battery life.
2, room temperature (20-30 degrees) for optimum battery working temperature, the temperature is too high or too low, the operating environment will reduce battery time.
3, can provide stable power supply environment, using a laptop computer, remove the battery for extended battery life is not right by. On Asus notebooks, when fully charged battery, the battery charging circuit will automatically shut down, so the phenomenon of overcharging does not occur.
4, the recommended average of three months to conduct a battery power correction action.
5, to minimize the number of NIKON en-el3e battery
The battery charge and discharge is directly related to life, one charge, the battery a step forward to retirement. Suggest that you use an external power supply,
6, the use of an external power supply when the battery removed.
Some users often plug the power several times a day, and the laptop is equipped with batteries, do more damage to the battery. Because each access to the equivalent of an external power supply to charge the battery once the battery life shortened by a natural.
7, after the exhaustion of battery charge and avoid the long charging time
Regardless of your notebook to use nickel-metal hydride or lithium electricity, to power after the exhaustion of a certain charge (charge less than 1%), which is the best way to avoid the memory effect. Lithium also have memory effect, but its memory effect smaller than nickel-metal hydride Bale.
8, the usual precautions
When used in peacetime to prevent exposure to prevent damp to prevent the erosion of chemical liquids, avoid contact with the metal battery contacts, etc. happen.
When you purchase your laptop battery
Laptop battery life - as no more than 3 to 4 years, it may be users of the most likely to replace things. Two years after the laptop, you will find the battery consumption and faster. If possible, you can replace the old batteries for new batteries to ensure the stable operation of the computer.
When the need to replace the notebook computer batteries, best to choose the same type of battery replacement. However, if the old computer using a nickel-metal hydride batteries, to make a longer battery life, of course, can also be specified by the computer user manual or manufacturers recommended models use lithium batteries. Although the nickel-metal hydride batteries for cheap, but there is memory effect, and in the same capacity than the lithium batteries under the weight of large, and lithium batteries have no memory effect, light weight, power supply for a long time, etc., has become a standard notebook computer batteries . Lithium batteries used in notebook computers at this stage because the different manufacturers in the power of time there are some gaps, and friends in the purchase process should be noted that different brands of the difference in the Sony vgp-bsp13/s Battery, the best among several brands compare.
Performance battery power supply in addition to the stated time manufacturers, but also need to pay attention to their capacity. Battery capacity is usually AH (ampere-hour, ampere-hour) calculated with the current laptop is 4000AH most about, and a battery can last for 2 hours or more. In addition to the battery power supply time by the whole power of computers and the impact of factors such as heat dissipation, the screen size (bigger and more power), screen brightness, and the implementation of the work and so will affect the power of time.
Now the price of laptop battery up and down the ocean in 1000, accounting to 10% of overall price notebook - about some of the ultra-thin models or even higher. The battery warranty period, is guaranteed 3 months, and is guaranteed six months, the longest, but also for 1 year; the reason why the warranty time is short battery laptop battery is easy because of consumables, the number of charge is constant, with a little time. Moreover, the laptop battery and other hardware different, there is no room for repairs, can only be a new one. The products of such a long warranty (replacement), intangibles to increase the burden on manufacturers, so buy laptop, be sure ask the battery warranty period and conditions.
Also in the purchase of second-hand laptop computers, they also do not forget to try it inside the battery can continue to work long. Under normal circumstances, the use of one or two years after the laptop is fully charged, the nickel-metal hydride battery can support about 1 hour or so computers at work, lithium-ion battery can support nearly 3 hours, but relative to the terms of this new battery requirements are already very low, and able to meet this target from the scrap to the battery of far away.
Causes of Damage Laptop Battery
Notebook computer CANON nb-6l battery a long time, often charge less for electricity, and even shows the battery is damaged, the specific performance of a larger resistance, the voltage across the charging up faster. So easy to charge control circuit is judged to have been filled, the capacity will naturally decline. Since the battery internal resistance is relatively large, the discharge voltage drop when a large, fast, so the system is easy to mistakenly believe that the voltage is not enough, lack of electricity. Comparison of the discovery of short battery life, should take appropriate measures.

Rio karma hard drive


Hi. I use this adapter for RCA Lyra MP3 players and it could be the same for your Rio Karma. To be sure that it is a mini IDE connector, open the karma up by going here http://www.takeitapart.net/archives/rio-karma/ and if it is a mini IDE then you can go to Ebay and search for item # 230283935161. I hope this helps.

Poor Battery life


Battery life on a portable system is a contentious issue, and manufacturer's marketing of battery life doesn't help the cause a bit.

There are several factors that will determine the ACTUAL battery life of your system versus the ADVERTISED battery life.
  1. Battery type and watt/hour rating. There are 2 types of portable batteries, Lithium Ion (LION) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NMHD) The LION battery is longer lasting and has a more consistant power output than NMHD batteries, and is more expensive. The watt hour capability is based on the number of cells in the battery (normally 4, 6, 9 and sometimes 12 cell batteries are available) The higher the watt hour rating (more cells) the longer it lasts. LION batteries are more expensive and higher watt hour ones are more expensive. So if you took the best price on the battery you bought, or if you got a system on SALE/good deal, you may have gotten the lesser battery in the DEAL.
  2. How the system is used on battery and power management settings. When manufacturers advertise battery life, they use the mose economical use of power configuration to get that possible life. LCD brightness to minimum, nothing running inoptical drive, minimum accesses of HDD, system running in cold room to minimize fan operation and essentially doing just enough with the system to keep it from going too sleep. They turn off every feature that can be turned off, the most powerful brand new battery available, and the "LIFE" they get in that senario, is the one they advertise. So, if you are playing a DVD, with all power management off and the LCD up full bright, your battery life may be less than 10% of the advertised life.
  3. Age/number of recharge cycles of the battery. Battery warranties are generally 1 year by most major manufacturers. This is because they consider the battery a consumable item and it gets used up. The normal battery has a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. Some last longer, some don't and are replaced under warranty. If the battery is not a year old, you can likely get it replaced by the manufacturer of the system under warranty.
  4. If you buy a replacement battery, get a LION battery with at least 9 cells. It will be more expensive, but you get what you pay for in batteries.

Can not copy files from Rio Karma to PC


Files can be copied to the computer from the karma although it doesn't work all that well.
You'll need to use Rio Taxi. I think you can get that if you connect the karma to your network using the dock then browse to the karma's ip address and get it. If not you may have to try and find a place to download it.
