    Your battery is shot and needs replacement. You could borrow a friends if it is the same battery and make sure you are charging and get a good discharge time before replacing if you would like. Please rate this solution if it has helped you. Thanks, Gary

    thanks. I've had a battery that was shot before, I don't think its the case.

    The battery stays on, full energy, no indicator of energy depletion, and just shuts off

I have seen defective batteries exhibit these same symptoms. If the battery is more then a year or more it is suspect. If you can try a known good battery that will show if the battery is defective.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.

Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Should I Remove the Laptop Battery?


    Question: Should I Remove the Laptop Battery?

    I have a dell latitude d820 laptop at home which I use as a desktop replacement. As such, 99% of the time the laptop is being used it is plugged in. I wonder if I should remove the dell latitude d820 battery so that it is not permanently being charged, or does the laptop cut off the current to the battery once it is fully charged? I do unplug the laptop when I turn it off.

    Answer: When using a laptop as a desktop replacement the battery should not be left in for long periods of time. The laptop will over time discharge the battery. Remove the battery – making sure that it is charged to 40% and store it in a dry, warm place. Ensure that it is wrapped protectively and nothing will be dropped on it.

    The battery should be re-installed every 3-4 weeks and allowed to fully discharge. Leaving a battery in storage for longer than this without using could cause the battery to fully discharge as the circuitry of the battery itself consumes power.

    Leaving a battery in a laptop while using an electrical outlet for long periods of time will keep the battery in a constant state of charging up and that will reduce the life cycle of the battery.

    Remember that when you have removed the dell vostro 1500 battery from a laptop while using with an electrical outlet – the automatic battery backup is no longer functional. Make sure to plug your laptop into an uninterrupted power source (UPS) not directly into an outlet or surge protector.

    How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


    To charge the battery using your computer:
    Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
    If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

    To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

    Dell inspiron 1525 - plugged in not charging shown on battery icon. Battery power light blinks 4 times amber then once blue.


    The diagnostic procedures from the Dell User Guide are as follows:

    Total Power Failure When Using a Battery
    If an AC adapter is not connected to your computer, the computer's power source
    is a battery. If the battery indicator flashes amber or is a steady amber, the
    battery needs to be charged. If the battery is flashing green and amber, the
    battery may be defective. To troubleshoot this problem, use the following
    procedure.
    1. Turn off the computer and peripherals, and disconnect them from AC power.
    2. Reseat each installed battery by removing it and then replacing it.
    3. Turn on the computer. Does the green power indicator light up?
    Allow one minute for the computer to initialize its components before checking
    for signs of power.
    Yes. Continue to step 4.
    No. Use the AC adapter to connect your computer to AC power. If the computer
    operates normally when using AC power, go to step 7. If the computer does not
    boot when using the AC adapter, see the previous subsection, "Total Power
    Failure When Using the AC Adapter."
    4. Does the battery indicator flash amber or show a a steady amber light?
    Yes. The battery needs to be charged. Go step 5.
    No. Go to step 7.
    5. Connect the computer to AC power, and fully charge the battery.
    For instructions, see the topic titled "Charging the Battery" in the online
    System User's Guide.
    6. As the battery charges, does the green battery indicator light up?
    Yes. Go to step 9.
    No. Go to step 7.
    7. Is the battery indicator flashing green and amber?
    Yes. Your computer may be in a hot environment. Charging the battery in this
    condition may affect the life span of the battery. Continue to step 8.
    No. The problem is resolved.
    8. Disconnect the computer from AC power. Is the the battery indicator still
    flashing amber?
    Yes. You may have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
    No. The problem is resolved.
    9. Remove the battery, and press its test button. Is the uppermost indicator in
    the charge gauge of the battery flashing?
    Yes. You have a defective battery. Continue to step 9.
    No. The problem is resolved.
    10. If a spare battery is available, fully charge it, and then install it in the
    computer.
    11. Turn on the computer. Is the power indicator off?
    Yes. Your original battery is defective. Call Dell for a replacement. (See
    Chapter 5, "Getting Help," for
    instructions.)
    No. Call Dell for technical assistance. (See Chapter 5, "Getting Help," for
    instructions.)

    The adapter is working correctly. The battery is either slow to charge or in need of replacement.

    It's possible your battery isn't charging at all so to test this boot into bios -> battery status and watch it run overnight.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


    This is directly from the User Manual:
    If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
    • Solid green: The battery is charging.
    • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
    If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
    • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
    • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
    • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
