The problem may lie between your battery and the adapter. The increase in the temperature in your adapter may only mean that yours is somewhat damage. Due to this, your battery may not be charged fully that's why it drains faster than normal. Have your adapter check for correct voltage output. The other way around, your battery may have a leaked, or shorted that cause the increase in the temperature of the adapter. Leak battery is not user-serviceable. Go to your nearest shop for it to be check.
Good luck.

My iron is leaking water. Can it be repaired? I picked it up off the ironing board today and it was sitting in a puddle of water. It continued to pour out the bottom. Is this fixable?


I have had several do this after many many years of use. I did not find a fix but ended up buying a new model. If you do not need to use the steam function, you can still use it. Might want to use a spray bottle with water to add the steam the old fashion way.

Tip

How to avoid damage your hair when using a hair straightener


1. Choose a hair flat iron depend on your hair type
The plate of a flat iron can be made by different material, while some materials will straight hair in a single pass, others might require more effort. So, before you go out and buy a straightener, you need to know which plate material suits your needs.

2. Go for Adjustable temperature Controls
No matter what type of material an iron has, it can malfunction. So, always invest your money in a straightener which has low, medium and high temperature settings. Afterward, to give your hair your favorite styles, try to keep the heat as low as possible.

3. Choose Size wisely
If you have short hair, you might want to go for a smaller iron. Conversely, only if you have extremely thick hair than going for a larger iron.

4. Fully Dry Your Hair
Unless you are using a wet iron, it's imperatively you fully dry your hair before ironing them. For, if you have wet hair while ironing, boiling the moisture out of them might do serious damage.

5. Use a heat protectant
Better be safe than be sorry. You don't want your hair to lose too much moisture while ironing. So, you might want to apply a heat protectant which will retain moisture in the face of excessive heat.

6. Don't heat one section for too long
While ironing hair, it is best that you divide them into different parts. Afterward, straighten each part for a specific time period which shouldn't be too long. For example, if you are using a flat or curling iron, it is essential that you never heat a single section of air with it for more than 5 seconds.

Battery status incorrect


This recalibrate's the battery.

Charge the battery completely. Monitor the battery indicator, which is usually found that the bottom of your computer screen, to check if the battery is already fully charged.

Plug off the power adapter and use the laptop until the battery is completely drained. To drain the battery faster, run several programs at once and keep the contrast of your screen to its highest levels. Turn off all power-saving features as well. Turn off sleep mode.

Make sure that the battery is totally drained by waiting for your laptop to shut off or go into sleep mode automatically because of very low battery charge.

Plug the power adapter again and charge the battery again completely. Once this is done, restore the power-saving features and adjust the contract settings of your screen to normal.

I have several "Chi" Flat irons that no longer


When the flat iron does not heat up, it is usually the ceramic fuse that is located under one of the heating elements. I fixed my daughter;s CHI flat iron for $1.97 with a ceramic fuse I bought at Radio Shack.

Iron is not heating up hot enough stained glass soldering iron:


hi friend,
check this out
Consider the wattage of the soldering iron. A good soldering iron will have wattage of 80 to 150. A wattage of lower than 80 is not ideal for stained glass. You need a soldering iron that will melt the solder fast enough for your project. Consider the type of temperature control you want. Some irons will have a temperature control built in the tip. When the temperature drops, it will turn on and when the temperature is reached, it will turn off. Other soldering irons have a built-in rheostat. You control the temperature by turning the dial up or down. A separate rheostat can be purchased to plug your soldiering iron into. Rheostats are highly recommended. This lets you match your temperature to your soldering style and allow you to do decorative effects.
  • Step 2 Consider the heating element. There are two types of elements, ceramic or wire-wrapped. Ceramic core irons maintain heat more efficiently than wound wire heaters. In a ceramic core, the heater core extends into the tip for faster heat transfer. This will keep the tip hot for a longer period so you can work quickly and faster. Ceramic irons maintain their temperature longer and heat up within 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Step 3 Consider the weight of the soldering iron. You want a soldering iron that is lightweight and balanced. You will have less fatigue when using a lightweight soldering iron at long stretches of time. Check to see if it fits your hand comfortably. Check to see if it has a good rubber cushion for your hand.
  • Step 4 Check for the ease of changing tips on your soldering iron. When soldering stained glass, you want to match your tip to the technique you want to use. There are a variety of tips on the market for soldering irons, and you want to be able to change them easily.
  • Step 5 Check the soldering iron to see if it has a heavy-duty cord and a three-prong plug. You want a grounded three-prong plug to prevent the possibility of shock.
  • hope this helps u

    My iron light goes on but does not heat up


    Like many other appliances that use heat to perform their function, your iron probably has a a thermal fuse inside to prevent fires if the intended heat range is exceeded. These fuses are cylindrical with one pointed end (this one connected to the metal case) and the other flat and ~ 4-5 mm diameter and 10-12 mm length.
    They are normally spot welded to one end of the heater element and can't be replaced using normal solder due to the exposure to heat.
    I suspect a repair would be economically a bad move.
