Hey all I have been having an issue with the battery life of my pda. When it is fully charged and I switch the front light to Super Bright and in two minutes the battery is at 10 percent. Any Ideas what would cause this or how I would fix this? I never have had this problem before. Thanks

How old is it? - Just guessing that it's a couple years old, and your battery is shot. in this case you need to purchase a new one obviously.
Also, there are battery monitor programs you could try out to see the status. A hard reset might help - it has been known to correct a "faulty" battery status.
Hope this helps.

This equipment is approximately seven years old now - if you are still using the original battery, it may have reached the end of its useful life, even though it indicates fully charged. Try with a replacement battery - if you still have the same issues, then a visit to a service centre is called for, I'm afraid.
Either the power converter (wall Pack) has no output of voltage....Or the battery has run its cycle of life. Symptoms of bad battery are,will take no charge,or not hold a charge for very long, or will not charge fully.I have an IPOD that I charged fully,and then put it away for a long time, when I got it back out....it wouldn't take a charge at all. These kind of issues are common with batterys . Hope this is helpful.
There seems to be issues with magellan batterys, being subjected to the cold has also been proven to effect the battery life, magellan offers a 1 year service on all units. I hope this has answered your question.
