These batteries for the laptops cannot be revived or extended. over time that cells in these batteries eventually fail. The newer laptops are starting to use the newer Lithium Ion power cells that do not get Cell Memory and can be used over and over regardless of charging procedures. E-Bay has several good US sellers and shippers that are relatively inexpensive.

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


Hi

I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge.
I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....
