Discharge means run the battery down until it needs charging again. I don't understand why the camera would say this. You can't use a battery when it is discharged.

Why does my Plymouth Voyager not stay running and deplet the juice from the battery

Battery will not charge


Do you mean it discharges while riding, or after it sits?

If while riding, then the charging system probably isn't working.

If you mean while sitting, if it's the original battery (2007), the battery probably needs replacing.

Samsung galaxys 2 drain battery fast


The power cell should only get warm if you have it powered on all of the time. That is natural. 6 hours is short, and that may be one of two problems, the time of charge is too short, or the battery is dying. HINT! If you replace with a NEW battery; you must set the battery memory for the start. That means, when you first charge it, make certain it gets a long 24 hour charge to full. Use the phone until the device shuts down because the battery was exhausted. Now Do a full long term Charge. That process will set a Memory for the Power Cell and allow you to fully charge and discharge the battery from there on. One more thing...if you use a Charger Device, make certain it is working OK or else the Battery will not charge well.

Icom bc-179 do not charge the battery


Charging a battery requires two components. A working charger and a functioning battery. The concept is simple. A battery charger must output more voltage than the battery does, and at an acceptable current level. First determine the battery output from the ID sticker, then measure the charger output. It must be 1 or 2 volts more than the battery output. If the charger is working, charge the battery overnight. If the battery does not charge or runs down quickly, the battery must be replaced. All batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. The most common problem with Ni-Cad batteries happens when they are re-charged before they are completely discharged. Recharging a half used Ni-Cad sets up a short term memory and the battery discharges faster than normal.

Works fine on battery or charger with battery removed ,add battery and it quits in 5 minutes


Your battery could be old, therefore doesn't hold any long term charge.
Every time you add the battery it probably doesn't charge 100 percent therefore it discharges within 5 minutes, shutting down your laptop.

Ryobi charger model # 140295003 has a red and yellow light. When charging red light is on what does the yellow light mean? Also how long should the battery be left in the charger?


Completely wrong. Quoting from the user's manual:

"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.

After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."

So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.

The light on my Roomba flashes amber very quickly when plugged in directly with the adapter. what does this mean? it usually flashes slower when docked.


If Roomba senses that its battery has been significantly discharged, Roomba will enter a special 16-hour refresh charge cycle. When the 16-hour refresh charge is initiated, the CLEAN light will quickly pulse red/amber. Do not interrupt the cycle once it has begun. The 16-hour refresh charge cycle is initiated by the robot and cannot be started manually.
For long-term storage, always remove the battery from Roomba and store in a cool, dry place. Blue or black batteries should be stored after Roomba has been used. Yellow batteries should be stored after being fully charged.
Battery capacity reduces overtime and usually the battery will need to be replaced each year.

How do i discharge a new camera battery sanyo vpc-t1284


hi anna ... you probably dont want to do that (discharge the battery) .. depending on the battery chemistry, you cant gain anything and can damage the battery ... for long term storage, lithium batteries like about 70% charge and dont like any complete discharge .. in fact better chargers will refuse to charge the Li battery once the cell voltage goes below a threshold .. when your lithium battery shows dead it is actually still higher than that minimum voltage.. once the cell is below that critical value then conductive bridges start to form inside the battery, that can cause battery overheating and possible explosion during subsequent charging .. so lithium batteries want to stay at least partially charged .. ... NiMH batteries can be fully discharged but that doesnt gain you anything .. they have no "memory effect" .. and deap cycling doesnt improve performance .. normal use cycling of a new battery may increase its capacity slightly as it "breaks in" but deap discharge is not needed or recommended .. for long term storage they want to be in an initial state of fully charged .... in NiCd there is thought to be a "memory effect" which is actually an overcharging effect ... those cells can sometimes benifit from a few deap cycles (conditioning) to erase the effects of over charging, but NiMH and lithium have mostly replaced NiCd in anything less than several years old (since Cd is toxic) .. ... there is only one case where lithium batteries are purposly discharged ... thats on some laptops or other equipment that use relitively large batteries ... but thats not for the battery its to reset the "power remaining meter" in the laptop .. that is a calculated value that tries to measure discharge time vs charge time to guess at what state the battery is in .. it can eventually become inaccurate due to accumulated errors .. discharging then charging the battery will reset that to a new starting point .. so purposly discharging LiON and NiMH batteries is not a good idea and doesn't .improve anything ... there are a lot of people that think it does but thats just habit left over from the NiCd days ... even some manufacturers of electronic stuff still believe that, but you can easily look at the battery manufacturers site to get their view .. you will find that the age old custom/habit of battery cycling is wrong unless you are still using the old NiCd cells ....

How to maintain the durability of the battery


dont leave the computer pluged in all the time if the battery is being used. i would suggest if it will be plugged in for an extended period of time (mult. weeks) take out the battery. otherwise when allowing the battery to discharge let it discharge to below roughly 40% to avoid over charging or just charging, for lack of better terms, "to much".
