Time to get a new battery. For future reference, do not use battery and AC at the same time b/c it will kill the battery. Use one or the other (unless battery is being charge).

Battery charging


Depends on how much the battery is in use, and how much battery life is left.
If it's relatively new (3 years old) and fully empty, it could be full by 2 hours - 2 h 30 min. If it gets really hot before that time, it's full by then.

Battery


Eventually your battery will have a short/no life indeed. Though this happens to all laptops.
Using your laptop while it is charging isn't going to damage anything. It just means that the battery will take longer to charge because you're using the laptop.
To get the most life out of the battery, fully charge it and then use it until it is empty. It's also a good idea to remove the battery when the laptop is connected to the mains supply.
All you're trying to do is extend the life of the battery. The day will come when it holds a short/no charge.

Hi, I have samsung SGH - X700, my phone gets switched off automatically when i speak for 15-20 min over the phone. When i put for charging, it shows full charged in 30 min.. Could you please...


The problem is with the battery. The battery life is down.
My advice is that you purchase a new battery from a recognised store.
When you have done that, before you use the phone, charge the battery fully. Also, ensure that the supply of power is steady.
In addition, to sustain your battery life, once in a whlie, like every 2 months, fully discharge then fully recharge your battery.
This should make it last longer.

Hope this helps?
Success.

How long must a battery be on charge for it to be fully charged.


2 hours is enough for a battery to be completely charged...

Once the battery is charged you can remove the power supply and use the laptop till the battery drains up to 10% to 14%......
This will increase the life time of battery... If you keep on charging the battery continuously when using your laptop, then the battery life will be shortened very soon...
So charge and drain the battery properly... This will increase the life time of battery...

Inspiron runs on ac power but not battery


Sounds like you have a faulty ac adapter or jack on the laptop and its not charging the battery fully. More like a trickle charge. I would recommend leaving the laptop on default power settings or the best power settings and see if their is a differance in life or either shutdown the laptop and let it charge until the light shows fully charged.

Compaq Presario v2000 notebook reduced battery life


you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.
