Yes you can charge your gps using the USB cable, but it will take a few hours to fully charge, If you still have the booklet for the unit under Specs it will say what kind of battery you can pick up at any RadioShack store

Sprint makes these GPS units so I would say get a battery there

LG Optimus L9 Screen blacks when charger/usb-to-computer cable plugged in.


sounds like you have a usb cable for charging only.You need a "2 way " usb cable,the kind used to transfer music and pictures to and from phone to computer.These one way cables are usually used in mobile chargering,as you don`t need to transfer things,just charge.Or you got wrong cable for your phone.

I lost the battery charger of my olympus fe-320. Can i charge it using the usb port ?


No, you cannot charge the battery in the camera via the USB port. You need to use the LI-40C or LI-41C charger or equivalent.

One source for a replacement charger (along with a battery and a camera case) is

Iphone 3g proper charging


Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.

Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active, which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan. The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A
Thanks!

My camera needs to be charged and i have lost the battery charger. so i put my camera on the usb cord and into the computer and tried to turn it on but it wont work.


You don't say what model camera it is, so I am going to have to do some guessing. If your battery charger normally charges the battery in the camera, then it probably will charge when connected to the computer by the USB lead. However, some cameras require the battery to be taken out and charged in an external charger. If that is the case with yours, then it probably won't charge by connecting to the computer.

It is normal for a camera connected to a computer via the USB lead to go into a kind of passive mode, just acting as an external disk drive so that files can be transferred, so not being able to turn the camera on while it is so connected might be normal. However, if you mean that you left it connected for awhile to charge up, but it wouldn't turn on after you disconnected it, then it is obvious that it cannot be charged up that way.

My psp go has run out of batterie and no longer charges pls help


There are two possible causes for this, one your charger is broken, in which case you will need to buy a new one. Hopefully thats the problem, because the only other possibility is that the Charging port is broken, in which case you will have to send it to Sony to repair. However, there is a work around to the second problem. My psp has the ability to charge via its USB port, if you have a compatible USB cable, connect your psp to your computer and see if that will work.

Garmin will not come on. Hasn't been plugged in for a month.


Given that you've tried other chragers, it seems likely the problem is battery related - especially if you've already tried steve's suggestion. How old is your nuvi? It is not uncommon for GPS batteries to go down after a year or two as they are subjected to temperature extremes and repeated charges and discharges. If the battery is the problem, it makes more sense to replace it for $30 than to spend another $300 on a new GPS. This can be done easily enough:

The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+205W&Show=ExtInfo

I hope this helps. Happy travels!

Best,
Rob

Can cell phones charge through the computer ?


Yes cell phones can charge through the computer. This is via a usb data cable. My phone (L7) charges through the computer after being connected to it via a usb cable. You need to connect it as a memory device or a modem. In case of modem u need to install the proper drivers. For each phone this feature may vary.So please check whether the battery meter is moving when it's plugged to the computer.

Garmin nuvi 360 power problem


You'll need to open the case and replace the battery. Batteries can be purchased online here or a couple other places on the web by searching for "nuvi 360 replacement battery". I'd get the 1400mah or greater for a replacement, it'll burn a little longer than the weaker models. If the unit operates when plugged into the charger, then the fuse and cable are good. Open the case by removing the retaining screws, then carefully prying the unit apart. The new battery simply plugs into the connector after removing the old one.
