Seems like everything takes batteries, and some things take more than one kind of battery. I was getting a remote control Jeep of El's ready to give to someone and realized that the remote took a 9volt, but the Jeep itself used a huge thing that needed recharging. Amazingly enough, with a new 9v and a few hours of being plugged in, it works fine.

Em has a cell phone, the battery in which won't seem to stay charged. We've had this problem before with a phone used by the eldest. Here's what aggravates me: when you take said phone to the cell phone store, do they look at it? Do they grant your request to purchase a new battery? No! They disappear into a back room and reemerge with a battery. Not a new battery, but one that has been lying around for who knows how long (or possibly recently removed from someone's phone with the same problem that yours is having.)

Well, the replacement battery didn't help, but that didn't surprise me. They probably want to sell me a new phone. If this phone really doesn't work, I'll get a new phone. But if the only problem is the battery, that's what I want. So I went online and purchased a new battery. I tried the store pick-up shipping option. No deal! I guess that's why they never offer to sell me a new battery. They don't stock them. However, overnight shipping was free and the battery should be delivered by FedEx before 4:30 this afternoon.

Time will tell.

What are you doing to recharge your batteries? If you drain yourself, you must take the time to be refilled.

John 4:13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

  1. Quit using the car chargers. They will ruin a battery quicker than anything.
