Try avoiding charging them as much as you can, but don't let them go flat.
Keep them in a cool dry place.

If you are not using a device, take the batteries out of it.

Avoid unnecessary use.

Hope that i helped you.

How do I deep cycle my battery


Run it until the tool stops and then fully charge it again. Repeat a few times. If the battery has a short life, you may have some cells going bad.

Red light flashing without battery on craftsman c3 19.2 volt charger


There are many possibilities, but one I found was a short between the terminals on the small square logic chip. With the power off, take a sharp tool like an exacto knife and lightly swipe it between the pins on the chip being careful not to cut any circuit board runs. I used a probe small enough to fit between the pins and scraped all of them clean. I think it was some corrosion that caused a resistive short. I have some other chargers with the same problem, but this solution did not work for them.

My brand new Kin 2 from Verizon is having some problems it shuts down on its own randomly and the battery life meter says plug in all the time when i have charged it all night ?


Its due to the fact that you probably have overcharged the battery. Hence the reason when you get a new phone it says on the "to do"list to let it charge for a full 24 hours and then use the phone. Most people disregard that message and use the phone right away. BUT thats not what your technically supposed to do. Your SUPPOSED to let it charge fully then continue use, due to the fact that when you do end up charging it at night or whenever after having it for a little bit the battery can either ,"A": Blow up within the phone itself, or "b" will not hold a charge whatsoever or "c"do the whole 00 thing. So lesson learned, Let your phone charge thoroughly.

What does the flashing red light mean?!?


The flashing red probably means that the charger is working correctly and is indeed charging the batteries. The light should turn green when charging is complete after anything from 1 to 16 hours depending on how this charger works.

Do the following test: Fit the charger with your batteries and connect it to the mains. After 1 hour check if there is a detectable temperature rise in the batteries. You can do this without interrupting the charge cycle by touching the cells with the back of your fingers. If the temperature is still low, let it continue for another 15 hours or so, checking every now & then for any temperature increase. Should the temperature rise more than a few degrees, then stop the charging by removing the charger from the mains. Should the red lamp remain flashing after 16 hours, then I suspect you to have a defective charger.

My battery keeps draining in my starcraft travel trailer evry time i put a fully charge battery in the camper in less then 2hour the battery is dead and with nothing on and all the braker off


Hello,

Charge your battery, and connect it back to the travel trailer. Use a 12volt test light to make the connection between the cable and negative terminal on the battery.

If there is something drawing power, the light will turn on. Remove the fuses from the DC fuse block 1 at a time, make note of the current rating for each fuse position. When the light goes out, the last fuse you removed is where the culprit probably lies. Now that all the fuses are out, plug each one in, individually, and see when the light comes on. Look closely at the light. Some notorious items that are left on are the antenna booster for the TV, the radio (volume turned down), and lights in the storage compartment. Some fridges will have a small heating strip between the doors. This heat strip may not be turned off with the fridge switch unless it is put into storage mode.

2 hours on a freshly charged battery is signifiant. The average Group24 deep cycle battery, in good condition, has a capacity of approx. 100Amp Hours. Most are able to sustain a load of 20 amps for about 180 minutes, around 3 hours. To deplete the battery in 2 hours, is a very significant current draw.

There are only 3 things that can singly draw down the battery that quick.
1) Furnace - but you would hear this one running.
2) DC Cooling mode on the fridge. Silent battery killer.
3) The breakaway switch for the electric brakes. When the plunger is removed, full battery voltage is applied to the brake magnets. A dual axle trailer may have 4 magnets, at 8 amps each, gives you around 32amp current draw. If pulling the fuses doesn't yield a culprit, the break-away switch is probably it. Remove the plunger, and push it back in. Watch the light as you do so.

Otherwise, look at your trailer connector. If it has been contaminated with road grime and such, it can cause a partial short between the charge and ground terminals.
