This may not be much help, but I have a similar problem with
one of my 2 Ultralites. One of them is normal, but the other one
will work only if it is plugged in. I haven't figured it out.
It doesn't seem to be the main battery, since I can exchange them,
and the problem doesn't switch. The same computer still has the problem.
