F505 Battery Question

I was wondering if anyone knew what the best method for caring for your battery is. In other words, is it better to recharge it after every picture session even if it's not 100% discharged or should you wait until it's almost empty to recharge it. The second part of my question is whether the battery should be stored when not in use fully charged or discharged. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Some VERY good questions that I pondered myself. The answer is not at all obvious to me. Some barttery chemistries are better stored discharged (e.g. NiCads) while others are best kept fully charged (e.g. lead acids). Others will loose significant charge on storage (e.g. NiMHs drop about 3%/day) and are therefore only fully useful right after charging or when kept on trickle. I suspect that the Li Info system is about the best of all worlds and it's probably not critical how you use them. I have two and store one after full charging and keep one in the F505. I'll switch them when the one in the F505 gets low on a shoot, or sometimes just when it gets to be a month or so since the last switching.

The Sony battery for the F505 is the info lithium type from Sony. Since its lithium you don't have to worry about the memory effect of the older technology. The battery has a chip that will regulate the amount of charge the battery needs. It will stop charging if the battery is full, so you can charge it at anytime. You should store it fully charged from what I've been told, if it for extended period of time. For short interval it should not matter.

When the alarm sounds, turn the key to the RUN (NOT START) position, then OFF - do this 10 times rapidly.
Many alarms will turn off and allow the car to start with this method.

What I would do is plug the laptop into an electrical outlet and give the machine a chance to recharge, then try to boot up. That should fix the problem. A word of advice if I may. You should never do any heavy downloading (such as system updates) while running off the battery. It really tends to drain it and, as you've found out, the machine could die in the middle of doing a system update. The battery should be fine, just let it recharge. Good luck!

How do you recharge a Motorola sp10 I need to know how to recharge it. I lost the manual.


There are three methods of charging the HNN9044 battery used in an SP10 radio:
1) Use the HTN8232 10-hour wall charger. It plugs into a jack under the flap on the side of the radio (opposite side from the PTT button).
2) Use the drop-in style charger by setting the radio in the charger (this works if your radio has silver battery contact showing on the bottom.)
3) Use the drop-in charger to charge the battery alone. (The battery will set in the charge crossways to the way a radio would set.)

Lastly, if your battery will not charge by one of the above methods it might need replaced.

Best regards.

Dvd player does not hold a charge ( has a new battery )


take a voltmeter and test charger or borrow a known good one from a friend if you know anyone who has one , sounds like bad charger word--- it is much better to run all rechargeable devices mostly all the way down before recharging as these batteries will do what is know as establish memory and will shorten battery life do not leave on charge except when charge is needed

F505 Battery


I think not. The FS11 is the sequel to the FS10, which was of lesser capacity. Their lineup is the FS11, FS21, FS31, each one being thicker and longer life.
