Power Runner Battery issues?
« on: October 21, 2011, 10:41:59 AM »
I've got a Tekkon power runner battery that stopped putting out a voltage a few years ago.  It went in a box and was found recently after a few years.  Is there any way to reset the batteries so it will pass voltage again?  I tried putting it on charge overnight, but that didn't help.  I loved this battery when it used to work, and it would be very nice to have it back in working order.  Thanks!

Should make a nice paper weight.  Seriously though, I doubt there is any way to bring it back to life.

it's definitely the right shape and heavy enough!  It's a shame... wish these things had fuses that you could replace instead of having to throw the whole thing away.

As a last ditch effort, contact Chris at Tekkeon customer service. He has been pretty flexible with the out-of-warranty items. With me, I was able to send in a couple MP3450's that were not functioning correctly. Both were over a year old, and were bought through eBay. But he still replaced them with brand new batteries for free (I just had to pay for postage there). It's worth a shot, otherwise, it sounds like it's headed to the LiIon battery graveyard....
