    As of 2011, dutchovencookbooks.com raised their price to $25. That may be worth it to some people since you'll definitely get what you're looking for. However, I opened up my lantern and it looks like it has a very standard sealed lead-acid battery in it. The battery is labeled "CB4-6" and has a logo that looks like it says "BEVE", but it's a bit too stylized to be sure. The specs on it say "(6V 4AH/20HR)" and then "Recharageable sealed lead acid battery must be recycled or disposed properly".

    A quick search pops up a lot of compatible batteries for $8 shipping. If "CB" stands for "CitBat", then it appears the manufacture now calls this 6v, 4AH battery the "CB6-4", which is slightly confusing, but makes more sense. Dimensions: Height = 100mm, Length = 70mm, Width = 48mm.

    When I buy my replacement, I'll probably get the UB645 made by Universal Power Group since it's cheap and it's rated at 4.5AH, instead of 4AH, meaning it can hold more juice and thus shine slightly longer than the original battery.

My phone battery goes flat after 4 hours, i have the powersave on, bluetooth off, plane off , i have replaced the battery and its still the same


Oh dear. 4 hours isn't going to get you far thru the day. With the battery in fair health it should still last you all day with regular use (at least). Due to the nature of rechargeable batteries, the battery life with gradually get lower as time goes on. As a rule, it should still hold 85% of it's original charge after 1 year.
If you are getting less than this and you have had it less than 1 year, the manufacturer (LG) should replace it under it's warranty (in some countries you may have longer)
Further warranty information, and to submit a warranty claim, Visit the LG support page or refer to the original manual. LG KU990 Support:http://goo.gl/u57P9
Batteries are also available at amazon and eBay (be careful to avoid fakes)
Good luck

Sony PRS 300 reader STUCK, FROZEN, 184 books on it!


did you use the usb to recharge it? maybe you've connected the usb to the ebook but it didn't recharge. The battery will drain if you just connect it to the computer but didn't recharge (bad contact between the book and usb, mine does that). try to recharge it, make sure the light beside the on/off button is on (red), let it sit for few hours that it should be fine

My dell axim x30 backup battery needs replacing. Is this something I can do myself?


i believe if you are a bit of a hands on type of person you should be able to do this yourself.
but not without researching !

read this page, should tell you everything you need to know, from the perspective of someone who had to do the same changing of the CMOS battery.

http://www.mobilitysite.com/boards/x3-x3i-hardware-troubles/96005-x3-backup-battery-revealed.html

or read below:

quoted from: Tenc hi4U

DISCLAIMER : I take no responsibility for any damage you may cause to your Axim. The parts and proecedures described in this guide refelct my own experience with my own Backup Battery (BuB) in my girlfriend's Axim X3. Your mileage, parts, anbd experience may vary.

Tools needed for successful BuB replacement:
1. fine tip jeweler's screwdrivers (helpful if you slightly magnetize the tip)
2. Varta V20HR rechargeable NiMH battery
3. electrically conductive silver epoxy
4. strong needlenose pliers
5. electrical tape or heatshrink (razor blade or scissors to cut to shape)

But here it is step-by-step:

1. Pop little rubber caps from 4 corners of back covers. Disassemble Axim X3 with small jeweler's phillips head screqwdriver. Be sure to plave all parts in a plastic bag or other container (4 scres rear cover, 2 screws near port). Disconnect the ribbon connector towards the bottom of the PCB and the speaker wire (also on the lower portion of the PCB). Backup battery should be the green covered circular item under the pcb).

2. Locate backup battery, Cut away BuB cover, & CAREFULLY use strong needlenose pliers to grip and "roll" the leads off of BuB.Be very careful with the leads.

3. Mix dime sized batch of silver conductive epoxy (do NOT hot solder this battery, heat will lead to BuB damage and destroy lead connection to wire).

4. Apply epoxy to both sides (not too much)and afix respective leads to respective side (red lead goes to +, black lead goes to -). Secure connections with some type of clamp (I used a binder style paper clip, but a wooden close pin or something else that will hold the leads to the BuB while the epoxy cures (Mine took 24 hours to cure).

5. Recover new BuB with protective covering (I use electrical tape cut to the shape of the BuB. Covering WILL have to be form fitting to fit back into Axim BuB "slot".

6. Reassemble and charge Axim and charge.

First check the specs on batt by taking it iut like this

How to Replace the Battery on a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which, in theory, can be recharged an infinite number of times. In practice, however, the lifespan of a rechargeable battery is finite. Replacing the battery yourself is possible if you have some skill with tools and a bit of patience.

Instructions
Difficulty: Moderate
Things You’ll Need:

* Star-bit screwdriver
* New z22 battery
* Palm z22

What to Do
Step1
Pull down on the back cover of your Palm Z22, and remove the cover from the device.there is a trick to it. The little translucent bezel surrounding the USB connector can be snapped out, revealing two T-5 (Torx) screws. Remove the bezel and the two screws and the other three sides will separate with some gentle prying as you have already discovered.

The best way to remove the bezel seems to be to slip a knife (or a thin fingernail) into the joint closest to the display. It's a tight fit but you don't have to separate it very far to get it to pop out.

The battery is not "user replaceable" - i.e. it is soldered in place, but you can buy one online if you're prepared to do the solder work.

Step2
Loosen and remove the screws from the Z22's casing using a star-bit screwdriver.
Step3
If there are tabs present on the circuit board, you will need to stop immediately. Consult with a technician about removing the tabs.
Step4
Find the battery. Move it out of the case so you can have better access to the power supply lead.
Step5
Pull the power supply lead from the battery. Grasp the base of the plug firmly and disconnect in one smooth motion.
Step6
Remove the old battery from the case and insert the new battery into the same position and with the same orientation.
Step7
Replace the rear cover on the Z22 and charge the new battery for at least four hours before use.
Tips & Warnings

* Use firm steady pressure to open the case. Sharp blows and delicate electronics do not mix.
* A star-bit screwdriver is not the same as a Phillips screwdriver. The star-bit has a six-flanged head which looks a little like an asterisk when viewed head-on.
* If your battery has a blue casing on it, do not attempt to change the battery.

How to Buy a Replacement Battery for a Palm Z22

The Palm Z22 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This means that you can use it forever, right? Well, no, because even rechargeable batteries wear out eventually. Since Palm currently does not offer replacement batteries, you will have to track one down yourself. Here is how to buy a replacement battery for a Palm Z22.

Instructions
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:

* Palm Z22

Step1
Write down the technical specifications of the Palm Z22 battery. The battery is 3.7 volts and delivers 950 mAH.
Step2
Shop at your favorite local retailer, electronics store or battery specialty store. Take advantage of the sales staff’s knowledge in your hunt for a battery that is compatible with the Z22. Bring your Palm Z22 to the store to be sure that the battery fits.
Step3
Search for an online retailer who carries the Z22 replacement battery. Once you have found a couple of vendors that have the goods, shop for the best deal. Remember to include shipping costs into your decision.
Step4
Get information about return policies or money-back guarantees before shelling out any money. Returns may not be an option for the Z22 replacement battery due to the specific complications involved with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
Tips & Warnings

* You will need a tool kit to change your battery. The screws on a Palm Z22 require a star-bit screwdriver to loosen the shell.
* Correct use of your battery charger will prolong the life of your batteries, whether the original issue or replacement.
* Be sure that your batter is compatible. You don’t want to fry the Z22 with a high-powered, incompatible battery.

My husband loves his Wahl 4000. It has totally stopped working. Is it possible that the battery itself needs to be replaced? It will not recharge. I cannot remember exactly how old it is...maybe four...


Sounds like the battery is done, but changing it is not recommended by Wahl. 4 years is a long time for constant recharging. The same thing happened with my SonicCare toothbrush.

You can send your shaver in for service here or buy a refurbished/new one from these guys. http://www.electricshaverstore.com/item.asp?n=7397500&k=7397500&sc=FRGL

You can also add an extended warranty on from www.squaretrade.com. You might want to call squaretrade and ask them if this is possible first. There warranties usually work on new and refurbished items on Ebay.

Tungsten E2 PDA battery


E2 has a great battery might not be it. Its not easyly replaceable like in some other models.

the battery can be replaced by a professional or by yourself.

The pda should work on charger? does it work while pluged in?
If it doesnt work while its pluged in theres something more seriour wrong with it.

You can try soft and hard reseting.

Instructions can be found in this pdf file http://www.palm.com/us/support/handbooks/tungstene2/en/maintain.pdf

If you cant open pdf files you need to find yourself pdf reader, google pdf reader and get one.

If soft or hardreset have any effect and the device still doesnt work even on charger then it has a hardware issue and I recommend contacting palm or the place where you bought the pda and findout about repairs and possible price, may be high.

good luck and if theres anything else let me know.

External batteries


Sounds to me like you have a winning plan of attack. I did the same thing a couple years back, bought one of those 4XAA battery holders with a little slide switch and put a jack on the end of the wire...worked fine. Then I bought a 6V 1500 mAh rechargeable battery from Radio Shack that was made for r/c cars and such. It worked great too. Never had problem one with either setup.
