Tungsten E battery reset.

I own a Palm Tungsten E and have had it for over a year. Recently the battery in it drains very quickly. I read through some forums and found that this can be a common problem with the Lithium batteries.

People suggest that it would be cheaper to get a new PDA than to try and replace the battery. It seems there is a circuit of some kind built into the battery that keeps information about said battery.

To reset the battery simply plug in your charger and perform a soft reset. Don't mess with the unit for a couple of hours.

I tried this and it seems to have worked. Thanks to the forum at PDATnutsandbolts.com for the help!
