The battery contains cells (about 12 batteries linked together, normally in groups of 3)
They will die just like any other rechargable battery will.
The main difference is if one individual cell dies, it can dramatically shorten the amount of power your overall battery holds.
Replacement batteries are easy to find, but they can be expensive. If you replace it, then anytime you intend on running the laptop from mains power for an extended period, remove the battery.

    Just a side note. The betteries in these are not your common household batteries and can explode (really explode) so under no circumstances should you open the battery pack.

Battery will not charge entirely


Take your battery to a auto supply store such as auto zone / advance Auto / pepboys these stores will check your battery for free, most likely your problem is you have cells dead in the battery,one cell being dead can make a battery not charge all the way.
Most batteries are good gor four years IF you are one who does not do any maintenance

My acer aspire 5741 battery charge keeps dropping lower and lower,it is now on 60%. Same thing happened a few months ago,got down to 15%,then suddenly charge d back up to 100%,was ok for a couple of...


One of the things is usage does drop the scale each time you use the battery without having the power supply unit plugged in. This is common for it to drop. The thing to worry about is if it does not charge back up to 100% at all. The ideal way to not ruin a battery is to let it go completely down to about 10% then charge it to 100% and go that route always charging will over time decrease battery life. So there is nothing that you are doing wrong or the battery going bad not at all this is normal. It will discharge normally without any usage especially over a two week period of time not being charged and just sitting there. John

Ultralite 480 lacks power, new batteries fitted 5 months ago, shows fully charged, dips down when accelerator lever pressed but stays in green area


The battery lights dropping down while the scooter is in motion is normal; the motors are drawing current from the batteries which is going to drop the battery level slightly. However, if you see the battery indicator lights dropping off steadily while the scooter is in motion (1 bar every few minues or seconds) this can indicate a battery problem. It sounds like this is normal operation!
Good luck!

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

Got new Palm TX out of box (although it is actually a few years old, but was never opened). charged for 3 hrs, but as soon as I unplug power cord, it goes dead. Battery appears not to work. found another...


The batteries have a shelf life. So they can die just from sitting and not being used.

What you can try is charge it and discharge it a 'few' times (few can mean 20-30 or more or less) it can revive the battery.

Replacement battery's are cheap $15 and up. So if you got these free it is worth putting one in.

Lenovo z51t, no indication of life when power up


Try this. Turn off unit. Unplug charger. Take out battery. Replug charger - not battery. Turn on computer. If it comes on the battery has a glitch and should recover after an hour or so. If it doesn't come on, the unit needs to see a reputable computer repairperson.

Good Luck
