  1. My beats battery was not holding a charge, with the red light staying on. Tried resetting and everything else without success. I had previous success extending the life of remote control batteries by placing them in the freezer for a few hours, so I placed my power beats 3 in a small sandwich bag and left them in the freezer over night. Surprisingly it appears to have worked, as I was able to fully charge them this morning and so far they are working fine. Will see how long it lasts and if freezing needs to be repeated.
