The problem is not the battery its the charging part of the unit, I also have this problem before that unit is nit charging , so what you can do for this is to take it to a celphone repair tech becasue they will need to check the charging part of it they may just solder it or replace thst small piece of electronic so it will charge again..

Hope that helps............

This is not a problem with charger or battery.

some problem either with the metal contacts that hold the battery. else some other hardware problem inside the unit.

first manually inspect if all the contacts are fine wit out any loose connections.

thank you

You need to replace the charger

    Well, sorry I am re;reading the problem, if battery does not reach fully charge even using USB, and you replaced battery with a good one, then is a fault in the unit.
    If battery charge reach a good level I think you can still use the LG like this, if battery charge stays very low try to get a refund, the unit is faulty, probably a faulty component (capacitor etc.) in the battery charger side of the pcb inside your LG.
    Check also that battery contacts inside the slot are not covered with oxide.

BATTERY CHARGER IS THIS A SERPERATE ITEM


That depends on the camera.
Some cameras include battery charging circuitry. You plug the camera into a wall outlet or a USB port and it charges the battery. Some cameras come with a separate battery charger which plugs into a wall outlet or a USB port. Some cameras use standard batteries, disposable or rechargeable. With these you need to use a separate battery charger compatible with the type of batteries.

If you're asking about a specific camera, please add a comment to your question and specify the make and model of the camera.

I live in South Africa and my son has brought back a Panasonic shaver from the USA. Can our std 220v power outlet be suitable to charge the shaver? The power pack only mentions 120v input AC?


If the power supply that came with the unit says only 120V, you must use a voltage converter with the unit. If you plug the charger into your 220V system without a convertr, it will damage the charger

How do i charge my camera so that i can explore


You can charge the battery in two ways.

Use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a power outlet.

Connect the camera via a USB cord to a powered USB outlet. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. You might want to consider a cell phone charger that plugs into a power outlet.

Sidekick 3 does not receive charge


All right. The Sidekick 3 has a known charging issue that crops up on some phones. If you are under warranty, call t-mobile and get it fixed. If not, the repair is going to run 100+ to fix the charging port.

A fast and simple solution is to by an external charger and an extra battery. They run about 30 bucks total on ebay.

Check out Sidekick Battery Chargers.

Be glad the battery is easily removable. The original sidekick and sidekick II had internal batteries that are a pain in the butt to remove!!!
