laptop battery

  1. I have a high performance lithium ion battery(replaced old battery) bought in June of this year for my HP laptop that I charged fully and discharged 4 - 5 times as told by the directions. After a little use I stored it for about a month and used my A/C cord for at home use. I installed back into computer and it didn't work at all. I turned off computer, took out battery, disconnected A/C plug, reinstalled battery, plugged A/C cord back in and the battery light stayed on for about 30 seconds than went off. I can send it back to manufacture but I just feel that there is something I might be doing wrong to get it going especially with light coming on. Laptop: HP Pavillion zv5320 Babs1

    If you don't use the battery, it will automatically lose charge and then completely discharge itself. You need to charge it again.

    That is what I am trying to do but the light comes on for about 30 seconds and goes right off. Last night I left the battery in with A/C plugged in and thought maybe it would charge but it didn't. I just can't believe that after storing it and than trying to use it would complete destroy the battery. I realize now after reading some articles that it probably lost its charge but I don't understand why it won't recharge. And I don't know what the deal is with the light! Babs1

    Maybe it was a bad battery or it got damaged during storage. If you have warrenty on it, you should get it replaced. Otherwise you might be outta luck.............
