JTV-59 spare battery not fully charging...


Recommended Posts

I bought a spare battery when I got my JTV-59.  The original battery charges fine.  The spare only charges to the point where I get two green lights on the back of the guitar when I install it.  Is it defective, or is there a way to drain it and charge fully?

Same happened to me, with my main JTV-59 battery. And this happened since first use, so I guess was an old battery, probably left without juice for years, sitting in its box. I don't think you can do anything to it.

The one thing I'm dreading. I was hoping I could use my JTV Variax until I can't do anything physically anymore (if ya know what I mean). Now, once the JTV Variax batteries aren't in production anymore, I'm stuck with the VDI only or the magnetic pickups. There's a thread somewhere where they have come up with a power supply that will fit internally in the JTV. At least it worked for them. We'll see. what happens

I don't know if it's some sort of battery protection to soft-charge (not fully charge) the initial few times, or if it's just the optimization and whatnot that happens as it learns your sleep/wake cycles and can save power during the night. It also could be because when you get something new you play with it all the time, and that drains battery faster.
