Repairing is now as simple as counting from 1 to 3.
Step 1 – Read Parameters (the software marks the failure)
Step 2 – Chip Selection (it is mostly detected automatically)
Step 3 – Clear Chip Errors
When a battery requires special attention, just open a topic on the community and we will be there to offer the best support.
Our Reset Feature unseals most of the chips using the master password within few seconds. Unsealing is mandatory to change chip parameters.
No need to try different passwords from a database.
No need to fully discharge the laptop battery.
By pressing the “Unseal” button the chip is unsealed and switched to FAS (Full Access) mode.
All battery parameters are saved into the EEPROM/Dataflash of the chip.
The Reset Option can read and write the EEPROM image.
Using this feature, laptop battery parameters can be changed, or even batteries with the same part number can be copied.
The EEPROM image can be saved into a file.
A laptop battery stops working and sets PFF (Permanent Failure Flag) when it detects a failure.
There are several types of failures but the most common one is over-discharged cells.
After fixing/replacing bad cells and checking the thermal fuse, clearing PFF is mandatory.
Our Reset feature can clear the PFF with just one button.
Reset Feature can edit the most important parameters in the battery chip EEPROM.
The parameters that can be changed after unsealing are: Date, Cycle Count and FCC.
The other parameters, if needed, can be changed into the EEPROM image.
Note that resetting the Cycle Count parameter to 0 does not bring the battery back to life. Only Clearing Errors will make the battery working again if the cells are good.
