Same thing happened to me a few days ago. The box on the charger was overheated so I just unplugged it for five minutes and then plugged it back in and voila.

i unplugged everything overnight while i put the battery in the freezer.
i turned this on with a full battery 10 minutes ago, and now im at 89%. still plugged in, still "charging"

could your charger be fucked?


and putting it in the freezer probably didn't do anything..

well i read that it might help. i guess not.

and idk about the charger. it charges it normally, but once it reaches 100 it just says "fuck you" and kills me battery.

and unplugging it just makes it go down faster, since this battery was fucked when i got it.

i don't get it? it charges from 0 but then when it hits 100 it goes back down? so you have to wait for 0 to charge it again?


so it does charge? so what's the problem? you can't leave it unplugged?


like if it's still charging it then what's the problem

problem is its going down, but charger is plugged in and its telling me its charging, yet the power is decreasing.

every computer has a internal watch type battery. Once that watch type battery dies then it won't hold a charge anymore. Take it to comp usa and they will fix it for live 5 bucks.

yeah but you said the charger still works until it gets full

yeah then once it does it goes straight down, even though the charge light is on

unplugging it and plugging it back in doesnt do anything. basically i have to wait until it gets to 0 to charge it back up again.
