What kind of charger does this Kodak Dashboard CW330 take?


The original battery pack is nothing but 2 AA batteries held together with a plastic holder, you can use regular AA rechargeable batteries and save some money. I had a similar camera with the original battery pack held together with some plastic holder, I simply substituted that battery pack with 2 regular rechargeable common batteries and camera works the same.

Battery will not hold charge


Go to Wal-Mart Electronics dept. and buy a DR9576 Digital Camera battery pack for $14.00, then pry at the seam between the front and back parts of the razor after removing the trim head, dust collector cup, and beard rake assembly from the top of the trimmer and separate the two halfs of the razor. This should allow you to easily remove the battery holder-circuit board-charger plug assembly and pull outthe battery pack which consists of two NiCad batteries which are glued together so as to have opposite polarities next to each other. Carefully using a flat blade jewelers screwdriver, pry the metal tabs off of each end of the batteries and take the DR9576 battery pack which is already joined together in the same configuration and place the flat bar tab onto the end of the pack. Hold the battery holder with the wired side of it facing down, and carefully insert the end of the battery pack you just set the bar style tab onto in the end that has the charging plug closest to it so as to have the plastic "springs"
holding the metal shorting tab {flat bar tab} up against the battery pack. When you do this, be sure to align the battery pack so as to have the other end positive terminal lined up with the red wire with the metal tab on it. As you insert this end of the battery pack into the holder, insert the metal tabs with the wires on them in between the batteries and the plastic holder so that they are pinched up against the ends of the batteries. If you did this right and didn't let the tabs fall out of place, you now have replaced the old batteries with a pack with almost twice the storage capacity as the originals had. Reassemble the razor in the reverse order that you took it apart in and plug the charger into the razor for approximately 36 hours for the initial charge. Also these batteries are NiMH which do not suffer from battery memory which means that they do not have to be nearly dead before they can be recharged in the future. your trimmer should now be fully functioning after complete charge for the first time and should give you years more service while holding the charge for in incredibly long time. Congratulations!!!

It appears that my battery for these headphones doesn't hold it's charge....It's hardly been used Battery type.....BP HP550-11 for headphones Serial No MDR RF 840RK


Even though you can use regular AAA batteries (that you would have to replace often), there is a huge convenience factor with using the charging cradle that comes with the Sony headset. A solution I found was that I ordered some 550 mAh AAA batteries through Ebay (they came from England and cost me $8 total for four batteries). To make the charging cradle work with the new batteries installed in the Sony headset you MUST use the bottom part of the plastic battery holder piece on the BP-HP550-11 battery pack (all you need to do is peel off the BP-HP550-11 label and the bottom half of the plastic battery holder piece slips off of the Sony batteries). Then just slip in the new AAA batteries into the plastic battery holder bottom and then insert into the headset. The reason why you must use the bottom of the battery holder plastic piece is because the plastic piece pushes on a little switch. This switch activates the charging mechanism inside the headset to enable the cradle charger to charge the batteries.

NOTE: I am not an electronics expert so I do not know if there would be any problem using other rechargeable AAA batteries (with higher mAh ratings). So I decided to be safe than sorry and ordered the 550 mAh batteries through Ebay.

I need rechargeaable battery for wireless sony stereo headphones mdr-rf860r


Since many Sony headsets use the BP-HP550-11 battery pack, I assume your battery pack is the same. If not, I assume whatever battery pack your headset came with, it is some type of plastic holder that holds two batteries together. Even though you can use regular AAA batteries (that you would have to replace often), there is a huge convenience factor with using the charging cradle that comes with the Sony headset. A solution I found was that I ordered some 550 mAh AAA batteries through Ebay (they came from England and cost me $8 total for four batteries).
