Question about Apple iPod touch

Battery run time

After a full charge my runtime is at the most 3 hrs! Regardless of what I'm doing on it. Could I have a
defective battery? It is still under warranty. Only had
it a few months and this is the way it's been from the start.

I used this ipod repair guide that shows how to replace the battery on an iPod touch using photos and instructions. The batteries wear out over time, expect about 1.5 years of usage if you recharge your iPod almost every day. Sometimes the batteries have manufacturing defects, in other cases the logic board has an error and drains the battery (ipod touch would get warm, if the latter was the case).

If you are watching many videos, than this is normal. but if you are only looking at pictures or surfing the internet and listening to music your charger is either broken or you have a defective battery. if you have a defective battery, Apple has a 1-yr Warranty on the iPod Touch so you can go to a local apple store and either it fixed or replaced, depending how bad the problem is. here is a link to all the apple store locations.

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...

Charger model FY 4101 green light stay lite all the time, and hoveround battery is still dead

When the green light stays on regardless of dead battery, this means the battery is defective. The battery must present a load to the charger, which causes the charger voltage to drop, turning the charger on. When the battery is defective, it will not load the charger, and the charger voltage stays at full charge value. This of course, causes the green light to be switched on.

I am charging Remington Shaver FS360 for the first time I have put in charge for almost 12 hrs (the instruction is to charge it for 24 hrs at the first time) but still the charge led is not glwoing. I am...

Wait the full 24 hours then try using the shaver. If it functions normally, then I would say only the charger light is not working. If the shaver runs down before the end of the 2nd shave, then you may have a defective charger and/or shaver. In that case, take it back where you bought it for a replacement.

Reduction of runtime between battery charges.

The only other things I can think of is a bad motor brush, or a bad gear not turning freely in the gear box. I am not as familiar with the drive scooter, but it should have two caps on the motor that have brushes in them. The brush is held in by the cap, unscrew it and take brush out ( it is spring loaded) and check contacts. If it is worn down too much or unevenly worn it needs to be replaced, also if the spring is not set right or the brush is stuck it will cause drag, Put the brushes back in the same way you took them out if they are good, if you need to replace you need to wear them in by putting rear wheels of scooter up on something and run scooter by putting a rubber band on throttle. If it's the gear box it needs to be replaced

Battery charge

Put 2 batteries in flashlight and ran completely dead. Charged them in 1hr. 50min. Pulled plug per directions for first time charge and plugged back in. Light went out in about 10 - 15 min. Plugged in third time with same results. Is this normal. Haven't tried them in camera yet.
