Default mini9/ extended battery source? - 09-30-2013, 12:38 AM


I bought a larger battery for my mini9 a couple years back, the unit was idle for a bit and now it says 0% and won't charge.

I saw the other threads about plugging/unplugging the power frequently to try to get the battery over .7V so far no luck.

Where is a reliable source these days for either a regular, or extended, battery? I'm BIOS A06 and hadn't had trouble with the extended battery, the light didn't flash incessantly or anything.

Thanks for thoughts!

Try leaving it on the charger overnight - I recently had a similar situation and this revived the battery.
