Tips for battery Indentification: A charge mark is provided on the battery pack to help you remember whether it has been charged or not. Two colors are provided (red and grey) - you may choose which one indicates charged and discharged.

My Pride Victory 10 scooter has newer batteries. How do I troubleshoot why it shows fully charged, needs charging, then fully charged?

Your description suggests one or both of the batteries are sulphated - been allowed to remain partially discharged or even fully discharged for a few weeks or more.

Charge the batteries, allow them to stand for a few hours and connect a voltmeter. A healthy young battery should read 13/13.2 volts while an older battery that is still serviceable might only achieve 12.7. Much below this and the capacity will be much reduced.

If these are the sort of voltages you have, the charger is probably ok. Ride the scooter until the battery indicator shows recharge is needed and test the voltage again - if it has fallen considerably, at least one of the batteries is faulty.

Traction, semi-traction or deep cycle batteries are the only ones that should be used and cheaper batteries will serve for a time but rarely survive the warranty period.
Batteries that are discharged generate heat when recharged and it is the heat that shortens battery life. Batteries last longer if they receive a top-up charge after each use.

Never leave a battery in a discharged or semi discharged state...

2 year old Worx snow blower battery charger says battery is fully charged, but the blower kills after just two seconds of power. What is wrong?

Batteries are capable of telling lies and fooling a charger, even a modern so-called intelligent charger. The only reliable way to test a power tool battery is testing the voltage under load.

2 years old and it is now the third winter your snow blower is seeing and two summers - I wonder what you did with the battery during those summers?
Batteries hate being less than fully charged and a battery that is less than fully charged for many months will emerge less than optimum and even possibly useless.

Modern lithium batteries don't like being completely discharged because when recharged with a fast charger they get quite warm and it is the heat that tends to shorten their lives...

If any of this seems familiar - your battery is probably faulty.

When I charge it and it indicates that it is charged (green light flashing) as soon as I disconnected it from power source it indicates that it needs to be charged (1 red light on).

Most likely the battery in your device is worn out , This can happen a number of ways depending upon the type of battery . Standard lead acid batteries as used in automobiles fail this way when they are discharged completely too many times . Lithium and some other types of batteries can be sensitive to being left on the charger too long or NOt being discharged completely before being charged . In any case you need new batteries

I have a Fuji Finepix S7000 digital camera. I works fine, but, when the batteries get discharged, the camera looses all the "setup" info (date, time, etc...)... Is there an internal battery or something...

There is no internal battery. When the batteries become discharged or removed, the camera retains the date/time settings for about 24 hours. Most people have backup batteries fully charged so when one set is low in the camera, they can make the change quickly.

Chair has no power after a full charge, only allows user to go oneway before it has to be pushed Batteries are good anf fuse has been checked and changed can you help us

Many a times batteries shows you full charged but due to some reason few of the battery plates are not working, and it will only work till the charged plates get discharged.

Batteries plates turns weak or get damaged due to non use of batteries, or expiry.

I bought KODAK NiMH 2400 mAh and it isn't rechargeable when I recharge it it jus work for few minutes.

NiMH tends to have a "memory". What this means is that the batteries will get used to being only charged and discharged a certain amount. What could be happening is that the battery THINKS it is charged when it is not... or.. it THINKS it is discharged when it is not. You can try to recondition them:
  1. Charge them
  2. reset the charger and charge again
  3. put them in your device and drain them
  4. let them sit, drain them again
  5. recharge them
  6. drain them again
Do this a few times. If you don't notice an improvement, you may want to consider getting a new set of batteries - I would recommend lithium rechargeables.
