Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

I have brand new just fitted MK Gel batteries and a known working charger. When the charger is plugged in and charging a orange light should come on or green when fully charged. At the moment only the red power light comes on and the charging indicator light does not. It is a Pride Celebrity 4 wheel scooter. I have checked the voltage through to the controller box. Lights and controls working fine. Kind Regards David Hornby

David, If you are not getting the yellow light on the charger then you have a problem with the charger. What voltage are you getting at the batteries when charging? You can check the charger by removing the end plate where the lights are to see if there is a fuse on the output side of the charger. if there is check to see if the fuse is blown. There probably is a fuse on the other end but since the red light comes on it is good. If you plug the charger into the charger port and put your ear to it you should hear a hum coming from the charger. Hope this helps you

ggirl why did you buy a pig in the poke they should refund your money because the batteries should have a six month warranty. Now always ask for the date code on batteries you are buying they shouldn't be any older than 4 months old. There are good batteries out there but if I offend anyone I'm sorry but MK batteries are very good also Interstate batteries and probably others that I'm not aware of. The best way to insure good batteries are buying fresh batteries, Charge them before you use the chair and always get into the habit of charging overnite if you use the chair daily. Never leave the charger plugged in more that 12 hours and if you don't use the chair daily charge at least once a week and always put up fully charged. Mk recommends charging the batteries daily for the first 20 days. Never run the batteries or let them fall below the red light on your battery level indicator. Your chair runs on about a 5 volt range (26-21 volts) after that the red light blinks like crazy. If it falls below 20 volts the charger will not charge the batteries. If you take care of them they should last you 3 years or more. Hope this helps

Laptop will not charge..


First of all, it could definitely be something with the battery. Batteries have a finite life-time, and yours might had reached it's end...

Anyway, chargers for laptops are quite "unique" for each brand, sometime even for each model. There's a chance that by your "trial and error" you might even caused more damage... :/ You should CAREFULLY take a look on what your laptop consumes, in terms of VOLTAGE and CURRENT. Connecting incompatible charger (even if it's plug fits perfectly) might (and often will) damage your battery and/or the motherboard.

With that said, try replace the battery (if you can try it without buying a new one - better), then use your ORIGINAL charger. Of that doesn't work - use a replacement branded charger. If that doesn't work either - you might need to check it the laptop still works.

Good luck!

Wheelchair battery charger will flash red and not complete charge. new batteries -- just got them last week. The charger behaves well in front of the tech. I've looked for a brand name on the charger, but...


You didn't mention what brand & model of wheelchair/scooter you have. To properly check to see if the charger is working correctly is testing the total voltage of both batteries together while the charger is plugged in to the controller joystick. First check the total voltage of both the batteries together before you plug the charger in. The total voltage of both fully charged batteries together should be around 24.5 to 26.5 volts. Plug the charger into the charging port on the powerchair/scooter. Now with the charger on, the voltage should read at the very least 1+ volts more than the total voltage measured earlier. If less the charger is bad and will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, if so please rate this solution which will help others who may have the same answer and thank you for using FixYa.

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.

Brand new psp battery will not charge


Did you charge it first? You need a good initial charge. Depending on the charger, it could be about 6 hours.

Also, remove the battery and check the metal contacts on the top and make sure that they are not covered by anything. Some come with a film to protect them.
