Tried to restart but battery flat! What do you think please?

Hi, has your supplier actually tested that the mower is charging? If you have a multimeter check the battery voltage with the mower running at about quarter throttle. It should be higher than 12.7 volts, usually somewhere around 14 volts. If it is not the charging system requires checking. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Our son got the Digiland Tablet for Christmas, there were times when it would just power down. Now it won't come back on at all. Is this something that happens often? Can it be fixed?


Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

Hello there. You may need to replace your battery pack, as leaving it charged for over 4 hours can lead to "overcharging" a condition which can dramatically shorten your battery packs lifespan and charge retention.
Also, be sure to charge your console while the device is turned off. Although you may charge it while it is powered on, it will take longer.
As stated, be sure not to leave the system on charge for more than 5-6 hours, as this can damage the battery and is liable to cause battery leakage, burning, or overheating.

Battery life is largely dependent on the game being played - some games can give you up to 10 hours of battery life, though the real-world estimate is really more like 5-7 hours of constant use before you'll need to recharge.

I hope this helps you. -

Frankie.

FS240BX battery how Long should it take to charge.


Hi .Charge the battery initially for 9 hours.

After the initial charge, under normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the power pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.

The red light is just a power indicator. The light will not go out, change color, or blink when the charging has been completed.

To prolong power pack life, avoid leaving the power pack on charge for extended periods of time (over 30 days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly reduce overall power pack life.

The power pack will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal usage.

There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteries
Hope this was of some help to you.

Konica Revio KD-400Z. Internal battery appears to have expired meaning I have to reset date etc. each time I remove either the l-ion battery or the SD for downloading. Can I fit new internal battery and...


First the bad news. Konica got out of the camera business in 2006...all service is now handled by Sony. The internal battery is not user replaceable. It is a rechargeable battery that recharges itself from the regular battery. It takes about 3 hours to accomplish this. If you remove the main battery for 24 hours, the internal completely runs down and all date and time settings are lost. If after setting them again, you don't leave the fully charged main battery in the camera for at least 3 hours, they will disappear again.

I have a b&q rechargeable 1m candle power lantern, how long do I leave it on charge from being flat as the charger unit does not have a led incorporated in it.


Probably between 3 to 5 hours.
Check battery regularly. It should be warm while charging. When it begins to get hot it is charged. If you charge the battery for longer, there is the increased danger of fire or leakage from the battery.
Note how long the battery has been charged for and during for future charges, reduce the charging time.
NiCad batteries should be run flat before being recharged rather than being topped up in order to get maximum life out of the batteries. This is less critical with NiMh batteries.

The battery dose not get the full charge


how old is this battery? if its a ni-cad then you can try to recycle it by running it till its nearly flat (by using a small light bulb) run it down till the lamp is just glowing use a 5 watt bulb for this just dont go trying to SHORT IT OUT!!! with a bit of wire or that will be the end of that battery,,after recycling it a fuw times run down recharging it it may start taking a full charge,, if its a nickel/hidrate its past its sell by bate and nothing can be done with it, also check the charger it may not be putting out the curent to fully charge this battery,, and how long do you leave it on charge??? it needs 16 hours at least, if its flat to fully recharge it,, this 1 hour charge lark is a load of clap trap,,all you get in the battery is 75% charge and a very short lived battery with it,,
so its slow and slower for a full charge,,

Laptop battery charging problem


Excessive heat could ruin a battery. You might just want to get another battery for it (check ebay or Lenovo.com).

One other thing to try is to run it on battery until it is forced to shut down and then let it set that way without turning it off for half an hour to completely discharge the battery, then recharge it fully again. See if that might help refresh the battery.
