Sonnet 2 Batteries Question


Joel

Recommended Posts

I get the sound alert on my Sonnet 2, that my batteries (dischargeable) are low, yet when I test them on a battery tester, they rate as 'good.'  Is anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks,

Joel

That happened to me often when I used ZeniPower implant batteries with my Sonnet processors.  When I switched back to PowerOne Implant batteries, everything worked fine.

Oddly enough, quite a few other Sonnet users reported the same issue when using ZeniPower Implant batteries.

Thanks, but I wouldn't think so ... especially if both batteries tested 'good.' I'll see if it happens with the two new batteries I just put in.

 

Thanks,

Joel

Also check the rubber seal at the connection of the battery cover and Sonnet control unit.  One time mine tore and it caused problems staying powered up.  A loose battery sleeve can do the same.

 Before  it actually tore it was loose and started causing intermittent problems with staying powered on.  Here is a link to a pic and post about it.

Power One Implant batteries have been very reliable for me.  I peel the sticker, wait and allow the battery to fill up with air so it is fully activated and all works great.  Once in a very rare while I notice residue on the battery when I peel off the label.  I remove that residue before using.

That rubber seal has caused problems for me a couple of times.  After replacing it, all has been fine and I ordered back ups in case it happens again.

The actual Sonnet battery cover causes issues for me.  They loosen up over time and require being replaced.  Otherwise the disposable batteries do not connect correctly.  They are under warranty for a time so check with your customer service rep about replacing them under warranty if needed.
