Try reinserting the battery. of nothing happens, then most likely you need to replace your battery as the circuit inside the battery might be fried already.

I left a 1960 sears battery charger plugged into my boat battery, how long before it ruins the battery, when I forgot the battery was plugged in, it was fully charged.


Hey Mike, I can't find a Sears model #1960 charger, so I don't know the specs on it. If it is a typical old school 2 / 6 amp charger or any other that does not automatically shut off or switch to trickle charging, you may be in trouble in a day or two or longer - depending on the charge rate you picked and the percentage of full charge battery was before you connected it.

How To Extend Your Laptop's Battery Life


Hi... This is Vikas Sharma From M/s Computer Solutions, Patiala - Punjab, India

Im Going to give you one good advice that if you want to make your laptops battery life batter and want that your battery should run and give proper backup then use the battery as much as possible and when laptop shown the message that battry low or less than 5% then charge it back full. do it atleast once in a week.

Acctually the purpose is that when you charge and discharge the battery full all the cells used and charged and discharged. when you charge your battery when it is having i.e. 40% or 30% etc. charging to full and then you use the battery upto i.e. 40% and again you charge it then the remaining 40% cells are not charged and discharged then they become useless and again and again this process dead the cells that are not in charging and discharging position. This is the one big reason for battery problem.

so I suggest that charge and discharge the battery for better results.

Thanks Take Care

Gps shuts off regularly


From what I've experienced, repeated restarting, and frequent shut downs, can be traced back to a defective power cord, and/or a low battery state. Garmins operate best with a full battery charge, regardless their connection to external power.
If you can get it to connect to your computer, and can see it as a device with removable storage, right clicking on it's icon, and select "properties" to show you the battery-charge state detected.
Mine won't charge when connected to the computer for some reason, and won't boot even if left for a few hours, but if I connect it to a dedicated usb charger, (the kind that plugs into an A/C outlet with a USB port) it will begin to charge. After fully charging it returns to normal operational state. If it still can't charge it may need a new battery...

My Gateway laptop, NE56R1u, shuts down automatically when unplugged even though fully charged?


Dear Leslie,

I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.

Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

This is the procedure for solving consider replacing your battery problem. Start by running the command prompt with administrator privileges. This will give the full control over the command prompt. There are those commands that can only be executed when you are using the command prompt with administrator privileges. Change the destination path showing on the command prompt to be set to C:\ then type the command POWER -ENERGY( to change destination path to C:\, type CD\ ). This command will make the computer scan the battery status and after 60 seconds, a report will be generated and saved in C:\. Simply open the energy report and scroll to check the battery information. Look for the design capacity and the last full charge, note the difference in this figures.

My phone only works when it's plugged into the charger


New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats. When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power adapter to charge the battery. • Turn off your device.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.
