Can i over charge my mobility scooter go go pride


Yes you can overcharge a battery, it all depends on the charger your using. Most chargers are single stage chargers. Most scooters come with a single stage charger. My scooter has a built in single stage charger What this type of charger does is output a constant 24v @ 4amps.The problem is batteries amperage requirements decrease as the battery charges. An overcharge will occur when the battery is charged. It requires very little amperage to maintain a charge on a fully charged battery. A single stage charger like mine will output 4amps regardless of the state of charge of the battery. Batteries bring charged with single stage chargers loose their electrolyte. What happens is overcharged batteries break down the electrolyte into oxygen and hydrogen. So overcharging will cause a battery to "boil-out" its electrolyte. Batteries don't work without electrolyte. In the old days there were only single stage chargers. That was the state of the art back then. So to cope with the constant overcharging batteries had refill ports where you could replenish the electrolyte using distilled water.

Scooter batteries are far and away different from the lead acid of the 1970's. Scooter batteries are sealed, they are deep cycle, they use a glass mat soaked in gelled electrolyte. These glass mat batteries optimize the electrolyte used so they can use allot less of it. These newer batteries have a lot more power in a lot smaller package but they have a draw back, they must be charged properly. You can absolutely can not charge these batteries with a single stage charger. Actually you can charge with this device but you will loosed electrolyte each time you charge.

I use a three stage charger 24v @ 5amp. This charger s different from a single stage. Its what they term a "smart charger" it monitors the state of charge of the battery. As the battery charges it turns down the amperage. When the battery is fully charged the amperage is turned low enough were the charge is maintained. The entire charging process is designed to preserve electrolyte. In short this type charger will not overcharge the battery.

I have flipshare on my desktop. It now says "your


look on your computer under either My Videos or My Documents and see if you find the FLIPSHARE DATA file. You can open that file and then see 3 files, videos, flipshare and previews. If you have an external hard drive, back all these up on that. If you don't, then try copying and pasting all three files or the one flipshare Data file somewhere else on your computer away from My Videos and my documents. that way when you uninstall the flipshare software it won't take those files with it, or shouldn't. then when you reinstall all, if the files remained, fine, if not copy and paste from wherever you stored them back to where they originally were stored by Flipshare. Your other choice is to take the videos you have on computer, put them into Windows Live Movie Maker and make a movie of them onto DVD. then you'll have them for sure. Just open the movie maker click on Add Videos & Photos and find the Flipshare Data file, then the video file and choose which ones to make your DVD. here's link to movie maker: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials
you do have to create a name and login, but its all free and wonderful! just don't make your DVDs too large remember a regular disk holds 4.7GB 120 min. Have fun.

My flipshare video has frozen-will not even turn off


Try holding the power button in for 10 seconds,this will reset the Flip usually.
If that doesn't work there is a pinhole in the bottom of the camera where the
tripod screws into,take a pushpin or something that small and push in for 5 seconds.

Then press the power button and it should reset.

It may be freezing because it needs the firmware updated,plug in your Flip camera to your computer and the Flipshare software will come up and check for new updates to the firmware.

I got a targus charger with a lot of charger tips with it. I found the one that works and it has been working for a while. Today i was on my laptop and it died. I noticed that the charger wasn't in. So...


Check to see if the charger tip is obstructed, dirt etc, check for fraying or a kink in the wire at either the charging tip or the wall plug. you can attempt to open it up to rewire it, i would recommend using caution, it sounds like as you got them in a pack of multiple chargers that it would be best to simply replace it.

Won't turn on after charging


It happened exactly the same to me. What I did is just plug the cam to my Mac while Flipshare was running and just waited till it woke up. Took around 10min. :)

Flip software (Flip Share) quits unexpectedly on my Mac 10.5.6

Dear Suzie,

Thank you for contacting us.

We will need to try to uninstall and reinstall the FlipShare program on your Macintosh computer. To do this please try the following:

2. Reboot the computer

If you are receiving the message, "Unable to update database file," when upgrading to FlipShare 5.6, there may be a corrupted file within your existing FlipShare database.

Please try the following to upgrade to the current version of FlipShare and import your videos into the application.


1. Copy your entire FlipShare Data folder onto your desktop or another drive

Flip share video application unexpectedly quits


Solved - I had the same problem.

The original "Flip Video For PC" software that came preinstalled on my Flip worked fine. But after being nagged to "upgrade" to FlipShare, I experienced the same crash problem mentioned here. Even worse, the FlipShare installation nuked the original program files from the Flip!

In my case, I think my computer's processor did not meet the minimum system requirements of the newer FlipShare software. The original "Flip Video For PC" software requires a 2Ghz P4 or higher; the FlipShare software says it requires a dual-core 4Ghz or higher. So when the FlipShare software tries to load the ippvideodecoder.ax module on an under-powered processor, it just crashes. Bad design.

I bet that most of the people posting this same problem here have processors that are "borderline".

Anyway, here's how to get the original Flip Video software back and re-install it on your computer:

Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility if you screw up your Flip or lose your videos. I can only tell you this method worked for me.

1) Use Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs to uninstall FlipShare and 3vix.

2) Download "Flip Video For PC" v3.7 from here:
http://www.theflip.com/app/prius/37/update/

3) Follow the written instructions here for formatting your Flip and reinstalling the software:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYc8N3dmxhU

Important: this guy tells you how to back up any existing videos on your Flip BEFORE you format it.

After formatting, I had some initial trouble with the installation not finding my (empty) Flip. Here's a workaround: the installation creates a folder called "FlipVideo Updater Support Files", and within that a subfolder called "files_to_install". Copy the entire contents of that subfolder to the root of your Flip. Re-run the installation and it should now be recognized.

4) Bonus: once you've got the old software reinstalled and working, you may want to disable the annoying "Upgrade To FlipShare" nag screen that bugs you every time you run the software. Simply browse your Flip and delete the following file:

[drive letter]\System\VIEWER\PD\checkForUpdate.txt

No more nag screen!

I hope this info is helpful to those who experienced the same problem. Flip tech support people are absolutely clueless.

best,
JohnB
