SOURCE: My shaver won't hold a charge.

this fixed mine. i noticed in instruction manual i copied off web that the base will completely discharge the shaver and then recarge it. its the nature of this battery type to accept a smaller charge each time. ignore the base. use or run the razor until lcd says empty. recharge useing shaver cord not base for 4 hours ignore lcd. i did this 5 times and the 6th time it took a charge and ran for 47 minutes. if this doesnt fix all you have wasted is a little time. ps if you do neeed to replace battery in razor cause its worn out, you will have to replace also the circuit that the battery is mounted on. why i donna know. good luck.

SOURCE: Battery replacement for Braun 8585

If the "reset" described didn't work all that well, as a last resort you can replace the batteries. You have two choices: put in a battery/circuit-board part replacement (drop in), or solder in new batteries. If you've got some soldering experience, I recommend replacing just the batteries. You can buy new NiMH AA 1.2v flat top batteries rather cheaply (less than $4 per cell) and using a soldering iron, take out the old ones and secure the new ones. Look for batteries with at least a 1650mAh rating. Good luck!

You can repair yourself if you are able to solder the new battery pack into place. You will find the correct batteries at See link below (you will need two batteries)

If you are unable to do this yourself, can do it for you. See link below for information

Looking for a battery for a conair gmt180 trimmer.

My local BatteriesPlus store assembled a custom equivalent battery with a slightly higher capacity. I didn't know they offered this free service, took the guy about 5 minutes. Because the OEM battery is soldered onto the board they didn't install it but I did it myself.

The battery pack sounds to be bad and in need of replacing. You will find batteries for most all shavers at You ill need to match the deminsion of your batteries to ensure that you select the correct type.

I have had my Conair GMT 800 for about 8 months. The battery will not hold a charge, I can't believe the battery goes that fast.

The battery is a custom made item and is not sold anywhere. It was made for this specific trimmer for Conair. I have the same problem. Great trimmer when it worked, much better than most. I actually purchased a Wahl (Made in USA) trimmer and am very happy with it, although it does lack some features the Conair has (or had). What can I say? Conair is a good company, but I guess this one did not work out.
