Question about i-mate K-jam Smartphone

1 Answer

Discharging fast I bought my I-mate KJam last year in june. Since the last 2 months i am facing a unique problem. The battery charges upto 100% but soon discharges to 75% in 1 minute itself in idle condition (without even talking to someone). And furthermore it discharges even more as i talk on the phone.

Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall

How long does the battery last, when you use your computer WITHOUT the AC adapter connected?

Did you purchase a 1-year, 2-year, or 3-year warranty?
If the latter, you could exercise the warranty, and get the battery replaced.

Do you have any friends with a compatible laptop?
Does their battery charge to 100% in your computer?
Does your battery charge to 100% in their computer?

Have you looked on eBay to purchase a replacement battery?
Or, there is a company in Seattle that takes your battery,
opens it up, replaces the cells, closes it, and ships it back to you.
This could be less expensive than buying a new genuine-DELL battery.

Discharging Battery

hmmm..try to run it with battery out completely, just from the power cord.

also, does the battery have one of those surface charge indicators, with the sliding scale?

also, plug the unit in overnight, off, and see if the adapter will charge the battery.

sometimes, you get voltage, but no current, and when the computer/battery come on line, the load will drop the adapter.

does the adapter light stay on, when connected to computer?

My headset does not hold its charge

Usually Lithium-Ion batteries have a Memory effect, ie. the battery should be 100% consumed then only recharged. If the battery is only 40% used and recharged then the battery will give you only 40% of it's total charge. The battery starts showing you empty after it is 40% consumed even it was 100% charged. Now there is solution for this-Drain battery upto full, store it in a cool place like Frigde then charge it full then again use it upto last. Repeat this procedure for 2-3 times.Your battery should come to normal state. Also check the charging current of the charger.The charger might also be faulty.
