TSC2 Battery Life

Recently our TSC2 data collector has failed to take a full charge. We shut down controller mode & even do the shutdown that appears after 3 seconds into rebooting (holding down power button for 5 seconds), & even removed the battery for charging (suspecting some program may still be running), & tried 3 different chargers & swapped batteries with 2 other identical collectors but  cant get a consistent full charge.Has anyone else had (and hopefully solved) this problem?See More

"Hi mate. Trimble is phasing out TCS2 with TCS3. Had the same problem as well, tried a new battery but still could not go on. Then I started having software problems and what not. Get a TCS3 instead and you will be home and dry."

"I'd re-cell the battery. Battery Source was able to do this for me when I lived in Georgia."

"They do become completely inert. We have two dead. I have looked fairly extensively for replacements and have not found anything. Please let us know if you find anything. Otherwise it's recycle and purchase a new data collector."

"How old is the battery? Sounds like it is just getting worn out. Avg. recharges is around 700 before they start degrading."
