It is possible to replace the battery

My Motorola S9 Bluetooth headset had getting a bit long in the tooth and wasn't lasting very long between charges - time to replace the battery! Too bad that it's got a non-replaceable battery, but since when has that ever stopped me? (Maybe it should have. Spoiler warning: it was a nightmare.)

Getting a suitable replacement battery is the easiest part. The official battery is an SP0530AD, but a cheap 051235 battery off Aliexpress for $5 or so works fine as a replacement; a 611235 should fit too if you want a little extra capacity. The hard part is actually getting at the battery to replace it. It's located inside the big lump at the back of the headband, together with the electronics. Carefully peel away the rubber covering the inside back of the headband and the power button to reveal an access cover beneath a layer of clear tape and goop. Don't try and peel past the outside edges of the two shiny black bands - it won't come off and you will cause damage if you force it.

Having done that, you should be able to see that the two shiny black plastic bands are actually clips. Prise them off to reveal 4 tiny screws that hold the battery cover in place, one in each corner - they're kind of hidden by the goop and tape so you'll probably have to push it back a little to see and unscrew them.
Now you can very carefully peel up the clear tape covering the power button and prise the cover off along the top and bottom seams to reveal the battery. Be very cautious when doing this - the cover and headband are really fragile once separated and it's easy to damage them like I did. It doesn't help that there's rubber in your way whilst doing this. The flap over the charging socket will fall off, make sure to put it somewhere safe.

Once you're inside, you can peel the old battery off the PCB and either unplug it or just cut the wires and solder the new battery's leads onto them - make sure to protect the joints from shorting with heatshrink if you do that though. Finally, you can stick the new battery in place and carefully put everything back together. Don't forget to put the flap covering the charging socket back when slotting the battery cover back in place, and double-check it's still there before you screw the cover on, or you'll have to repeat the most fiddly part of the whole procedure! (I made this mistake more than once.) Finally, you can stick the rubber back in place.
If you're lucky you should now have a working Bluetooth headset with a fresh new battery - and hopefully it won't have to be patched back together with glue and prayers like mine now is.

My pendo wont fully charge, and now it won't come on at all


Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

Battery exhausted even after charging.


There are two possibilities. First, rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Take out your rechargeable batteries and replace them with non-rechargeable ones for test purposes. If your camera works ok, it may be that the camera's charger circuit has gone bad. Try charging your batteries on an external charger. If they charge, it is your camera's charger, if they do not hold a charge, it is probably time for new rechargeable batteries.

Dead battery


Be sure to charge your batteries fully before installing them. If the batteries are non-rechargeable, dispose of the old batteries properly, and then replace them.
Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge/discharge cycles before they become exhausted. If your rechargeable batteries are dead after a full charge cycle, they may also need to be replaced.

How can I charge my centon 4gb mp3 player?


I have the same player. You can use a rechargable battery. But you cannot charge the battery by connecting it to the USB. You must charge the battery with a AAA battery charger - they sell them at walmart for like $15. The rechargable battery really works excellent in this player - I listen to my player all day long and rechargeable batteries are the only way to go for me! Make sure you have four batteries though so you can always have a backup charged as the charger takes 8 hours to charge the batteries.

Printer will not charge camera batteries. camera screen said to go on line and look for m627-435


Did you go online and look up this troubleshooting tip from HP?  Did you make sure the batteries are rechargeable and in the correct orientation ( + and - )? Here is the results from looking up the error code M627-435 at the HP website:
Solution
  1. Ensure that the batteries are rechargeable. If the batteries are not rechargeable, replace them with rechargeable batteries.
  2. If the batteries are rechargeable, take them out and check for obvious physical damage. If the batteries are damaged, replace the batteries with rechargeable batteries in good physical condition.
  3. If the batteries are in good condition, charge the batteries using the external charger that shipped with the camera before using them in the camera for the first time.
  4. If you have tried each of the steps above and the status message still displays when you try to charge the batteries, replace the batteries.
Cause The Batteries cannot be charged status message is usually caused by one of the following:
  • When first connected to an optional HP AC power adapter or placed on an optional dock, the camera performs a test to determine if the batteries are rechargeable. If the test determines that the batteries are non-rechargeable, an status message displays in the LCD.
  • If the battery charge falls below 1.1 volts, the camera cannot detect that the batteries are rechargeable. The camera does not charge batteries below a 1.1-volt threshold to prevent charging non-rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries discharged below 1.1 volts can be charged in an external charger.
    Apparently, your batteries are either seriously discharged where you need to use an external AC charger to recharge the batteries or their damagaed and need replacing. Hope this helps.
