If the rechargeable 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 and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Why will my ellipsis 7 no longer hold a charge ?

All rechargeable batteries will eventually fail to take and/or hold a charge. In some cases it is due to being worn out, in others it is due to what is called "battery memory". Battery Memory occurs when a battery is charged often, but is not allowed to fully discharge between chargings. It was really bad with the old Ni-Cad type batteries, but all batteries can have some affects.

My Thomas 6v Ride -On Train works, but VERY slow. It sounds like its really struggling to go. I have TWO fully charged batteries so I know its not the battery. Everything else on it works great...

It sounds to me like your battery needs to be replaced. The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge after some time (especially if they've sat for a long while without a charge). You can get the battery tested at a trusted shop, but it might be more econimical to just replace the batteries with fresh batteries and see if that solves the problem. New batteries will charge much better and hold the charge much longer.

When battery is being charged the dis light keeps coming on

charger or batteries are dud, or short in the wiring, check all wiring for shorts, check to see if you can charge the batteries with a car charger one at a time, if they charge and hold that charge then you need to replace the charger, if they will not hold a charge or you have a similar problem with the car charger, then the batteries are dud and need replacing,

Batteries do not charge

If your batteries aren't charging than they just might be old. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Also if you charge them whenever they are not in use they're lifespan will shorten. You might just want to consider new ones.

Batteries will not hold charge very long???? almost brand new power chair will not hold a charge and has only been charged a hand full of times???

anthony thats the problem batteries seldom used will not be broken in correctly and will get weaker rather than stonger. charging a handful of times will not do it. MK batteries recommends that new batteries be charged nightly for 20 days to break them in. Sorry you will have to get new batteries. Now new batteries usually have a 6 month warranty and if its been less than that try getting them replaced via warranty through the provider that sold you the chair Hope this Helps

I have an electric scooter chair that would charge, do i need to replace the battery? i had not charged it for about a year and i think the batteries are drained. I tried to charge it and it is not holding...

Hi. Sounds very much as if your batteries need replacing. Batteries loose there ability to hold a charge if they are left for long periods of time.
Some times repeated charging and discharging will help, but will not be as good as new ones. Good luck. Neil.

Battery won't hold a charge - go-go elite travellor scooter battery charged overnight but won't hold charge.

We have had problems with scooter batteries from time to time and the repair man said to take apart the battery case and disconnect the batteries and use a car charger. I put the two battery in parallel and used a amp battery charger. This worked fine.
Don't run your scooter batteries all the way down when using the Go Go as the scooter charger won't always bring them up to full charge and you may have repeat this. Also running the batteries all the way down shortens there life.

We have two handsets, and neither will hold a charge, despite being in the cradle, with the charging icon lit up the whole time. At first one would charges, and the other not, now neither will hold more...

Sounds like the handsets work fine aside from inability to hold a charge.

Which to remedy that it sounds like the factory shipped the product with el cheapo batteries that needs replaced.

I'll not degrade brand names here but it's became a quiet common issue lately.

Batteries won't hold a charge

Are the batteries really gettin a full charge or is your charger faulty. If you can borrow a voltage meter you can see what your battery is putting out and check the charger (plugged in) to test how much voltage it is putting out. If the Razor is 12 volt you can hook up a car/motorcycle charger to pump up those batteries. I don't think your batts are not holding a charge, i think they're not gettin a charge....good luck to you...Tim
