Question about Palm LifeDrive Mobile Manager Handheld
My LifeDrive was not keeping a charge and then not charging and I replaced the battery with a new one. Now, after the battery has been changed, it continues to not charge above 33% and it almost seems like the unit does not charge, even if the charging light is on, unless I "jiggle" it to get the lightning bolt to appear. This happens consistently even when I plug it in to 3 different charging units that I have (a Palm LifeDrive stand and two other portable plug-in cords).
Is this a battery problem or a problem with the physical place where the charging cord is to be plugged in? I do not get any error messages or other alerts.
I had the exact same annoying problem. Easy fix though. Get the palm universal cradle. The power connector is either worn or loose and making partial contact. So when you use the normal adapter there might be a position that works but generally it won't. When you use the cradle the weight of the LD presses the contacts more and it will behave.
I went through a couple of chargers before getting the cradle and fixing it once and for all.
