I purchased Samsung R528 laptop, 10 months back. Its battery lasts for only 30 mins even though it's fully charged. What could be the problem? I'm also thinking to get it replaced from the company as it is under warantee period.

If you have a warranty for the battery, use it. The battery seems to have developed a problem with "memory" or was manufactured poorly. If the battery is old/refurbished then bad "memory" would happen. If it is brand new when purchased, the battery has an internal issue and should be replaced.

The rechargeable battery is the problem, you should get it replaced from the company since you still have warranty.

I have a Advent 8315 the turns itself off when unplugged even when its fully charged


Try removing your battery, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in and see if it powers up. If not, take your battery out, put it in the freezer overnight, take it out and let it sit in room temperature for 12 hours and then put it back in ....DO NOT put it in right out of the freezer and into the laptop ...let it warm up .... after 12 hours, try it and see if it shows 0% and charging ...if it still shows 100% charged, your battery is shot. Let me know how it goes

R530 switchesoff


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery dropsoff to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

The gyropter will not charge when I plug it in


Hi,
Check the charger adaptor if it has any output power. If no power comes out replace the adaptor.
Check also the battery terminal, it might already corrode and needs clean up.
If all does not work, the battery in the helicopter is already malfunctioning.

hope that helps you out!

Hi, I have samsung SGH - X700, my phone gets switched off automatically when i speak for 15-20 min over the phone. When i put for charging, it shows full charged in 30 min.. Could you please...


The problem is with the battery. The battery life is down.
My advice is that you purchase a new battery from a recognised store.
When you have done that, before you use the phone, charge the battery fully. Also, ensure that the supply of power is steady.
In addition, to sustain your battery life, once in a whlie, like every 2 months, fully discharge then fully recharge your battery.
This should make it last longer.

Hope this helps?
Success.

Battery


This isn't something to get overly concerned with. Most likely it's just the battery, and not a problem with the machine. Batteries are funny. I own a small computer shop, and we specialize in laptops, so I've seen many batteries (with laptop attached) come through. The thing about batteries is that, although they may be the exact same make and model, they will have different characteristics, and no two batteries will be the same. I've had batteries that held a great charge, and would hold a charge for 3 to 4 hours, but only had a life of about 8 months before replacement. Then I've had batteries that will only hold a charge for approx 45 minutes, but lasted 2 or 3 years before replacement. I'm going to say that you just have a weak battery, and suggest that you purchase another to use on a regular basis, and keep this one for a back up (or vice versa). I think it's always a good idea to keep a back up battery.
