Two years is actually pretty good for a rechargeable battery in regular/constant use.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have around 500 recharge cycles and then will loose capacity very quickly as for your unit.

This internal Li-Ion battery will now need to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.


try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

Our Super Gaucho 24volts is 2-years-old and barely used. Now the battery is not lasting to long. Is this normal? I mean, with a more frequent charging/use will its performance be improved? Thx ahead &...


Unfortunately the batteries just lose their holding power after awhile, and if you don't keep them charged every few months (like during winter if your child isn't riding, you still need to charge / refresh the battery every 2 months or so, if it isn't charged for a few months, it'll lose some of it's holding power), that's a very common problem. Our 24V Perego batteries for our Gaucho only seem to last like 30 minutes of constant riding (my son rides non stop sometimes for 30+ minutes). If you check out the site modifiedpowerwheels.com , people convert them to use non Perego batteries that run for much longer!

If the battery is approaching 2 years old and your only getting only 30 minutes of use, it could very well be that your unit needs a new battery. Please see this link:

New batteries in Smart UPS 700 only lasts 2 minutes at 30% load


If you blistered your older batteries a good chance your inverter is going or will go bad. The heat alone can do damage to your components. Time to replace the unit and remember next time not to wait so long to replace your batteries. Replacement of batteries every three to approaching four years is a good idea.

Ipod 30gb battery shuts off in 30 minutes


your issue could be one of 2 things.
Either your battery is becoming old and needs to be replaced or your mainboard is malfunctioning and causing the low battery signal.

If you have your music library backed up in iTunes, I would connect the iPod and restore the firmware. You can accomplish this by pressing the restore button in itunes.

If your battery is more than 2 years old, replace it and see if the problem goes away,

Charged battery only lasts 30 minutes


Try fully draining the battery and recharging it fully. If that does not work chances are the battery is going bad. How old is the dvd player ? If its still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement.

Phone loses connection after few minutes


I looked up the battery specs for your phone. They are 3 X 200mah= 600mah battery packs. They should last 8 hrs talk time with the headsets. This style of battery pack in my experience only last about 1 1/2years and sometimes longer and "sometimes" shorter...much shorter. I bet you never had problems when you first got them. Basicly this "battery design arrangment" goes back many years before newer battery technlogy was developed. But designers still insist on using them even today. They are cheap to make. ****Time to replace them with new ones.**** Make sure you follow the mfgs charging instructions: "After battery installation, place the handsets in their base unit or charger and allow to charge for 16 hours before use. You can keep the battery charged by returning the handsets to their base unit or charger after each use. When the battery is fully depleted, a recharge takes about 12 hours. Average talk time on a fully charged battery is about eight hours depending on environmental conditions, standby time is approximately four days." Good luck
