Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

3680 charging issue

I posted about my 3680 not charging and i got a solution that the batteries are lithium ion and tend to lose charging abilities and that i need to replace them. I understand this but would the batteries cause the computer not to charge ONLY while its turned on? Because it charges perfectly while it is turned off.

    I have had this laptop since Christmas. It has worked great up until recently. Even if its plugged in the charge seems to go down on the battery. One day, it was plugged in and still shut off on me and told me I only had 2% left on the battery when I turned it back on.

Ok " new batteries would be a cool Idea, but did ya know you can set your laptop for desk top mode and laptop mode, desktop uses more power , laptop conserves power .

go to control panel look for power management.

I just bought the Lithium - ion batteries for replacement for my 18.0 volt ni-cad battery. when I put it (ion battery) in the charger (ni-cad charger) no lights come on. what's up?


Lithium Ion batteries don't charge the same way ni-cads or ni-mh do. You need a lithium ion specific charger to charge them. (Some chargers do multiple types.)

Also, Li-ion batteries crave their own chargers (NiCd and NiMH batteries can generally use the aforementioned charger) and at abounding ability can irreversibly lose amid 5-20% of their accumulator accommodation annually.

Because of this, nickel-based batteries (both NiCd and NiMH) are almost aerial maintenance. Also, the cadmium in NiCd batteries is toxic.

My Sony PEG-T615C/G works well but the battery will not hold a charge. Can I replace the battery? if so, what type is it?


Hello

Your system definitely uses a lithium ion battery.

Over their lifespans, lithium-ion batteries can lose the ability to hold a charge. After a few years, some batteries will last only a fraction of the rated runtime. Replacing a battery is relatively simple; most pop out from the bottom or back of the laptop.

Many retailers, however, charge hundreds of dollars for a new battery. Sites like batteries.com specialize in discount laptop batteries and can save you money on a brand new battery for your laptop. For example, a Dell Latitude D620 Li-ion battery costs $139 on Dell's Web site and $83.99 on batteries.com, as of press time. (The company even offers a two-year warranty and 45-day money-back guarantee on all laptop-battery orders.)

My battery was charged the whole night but it can only used for half an hour is that means that the battery is already loose?


could be. oNe thing to try is let the battery die completely. Then try an overnight charge. If it still works the same, then the battery has bad cells and will need to be replaced. Good Luck.

What Ryobi batteries p103 or p104 will a battery charger that came with my p100 batteries charge? Or will the charger work with these batteries?


If you have a P100 NiCad battery, the charger for that will not charge the new Lithium Ion P103 or P104 batteries. You need a specialised Ryobi Lithium Ion battery charger like this one

My samsung L730 digital camera will not turn on, i have charged it overnight and am using a lithium ion rechargablt battery that came with the camera


Some lithium-ion really loose their life easily and sometimes quickly.They are affected by temperatures too.I noticed that when I am charging the batteries tend to heat up and I found out they loose their power quickly when you let them charge and leave them warm.Secret to of prolonging their life is after a full charge zip lock it and freeze them.Of course dry them upon use.Do try a new set of batteries it will resurrect your camera back to life.

Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?


Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.
