Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

How to increase battery life by up to 2X

When you charge your cell phones and other portable devices, don't wait until it reaches low battery. Always charge when the battery is half depleted. This ensures that you get the most out of your battery. When you wait until it's completely gone, you won't get as much energy as when you started before. One thing about rechargeable batteries is that the energy is less available for you per charge.

my phone will not turn on


Charge it. Once the battery is depleted, if you plug the phone into a charger, the phone will for some time refuse to show any life even while plugged into a charger. If you have some sort of fast charger, it may come to life almost immediately. Otherwise, you are in for a bit of a wait. How long? -An eternity if you need to make an immediate call or receive on. Otherwise, my "guess" is that it will at least work briefly within a half hour.

Make sure your charger IS plugged into the wall to a working wall socket.

If you accidentally completely powered it down, simply power it up. Seems obvious but you have to eliminate the possibility.

There is always a possibility that the battery is not holding a charge. Ask yourself how old is the battery.

acer aspire 5935g battery problem


Many users do not use their notebook/notebook batteries correctly. The battery in a laptop/notebook/netbook is a rechargeable battery, like the battery in a Cellphone, a Digital Camera an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player. This type of battery needs to both charge and discharge, if it is to perform to its maximum capacity and have a full, long life.

You would never dream of using a Cellphone, Digital Camera, an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player only with the devices permanently connected to the mains electricity, because they are all devices that are designed to be used while the user is moving around whether indoors or outdoors, powered by their rechargeable batteries. the batteries of such devices are only recharged when the charge in their cells is depleted and then only for as long as it takes to restore full charge to them.

As with the other devices mentioned, a laptop/notebook/netbook's battery is designed for mobile use and the user should charge it to 100% full and then stop charging it to then use the device on battery power alone, until the battery is low on power, when the recharging cycle can then be repeated.

A notebook/netbook has more flexibility than the other devices mentioned because, unlike the other devices, it can also be powered directly from the mains electricity, without the battery installed.

If your laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used away from the home or office, it is fine to leave the battery permanently installed. If, however, it is mainly used indoors at home or at work and always or almost always on exactly the same desk or table, then it makes little sense to use it either on battery power alone or with the battery permanently installed.

Charge the battery up to full charge and then disconnect the battery from the device and keep it safely for when you next need to use the laptop/notebook/netbook on the move (if the battery is stored for long periods it may require additional recharging to both maintain the battery's condition and to keep it fully charged because low level power dissipation takes place in a disconnected battery). Then connect the device to the mains electricity without the battery and continue using it like that.

If the laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used in a single permanent indoor location, then charging has to stop when the battery has reached 100% full charge and should only be resumed when the device gives a low battery charge warning.

It is also important not to let rechargeable batteries drain completely by ignoring the low battery charge warming and continuing to use the device until the battery runs out of charge and the device powers down suddenly. Sudden shutdowns like this are neither good for the battery nor the device and can shorten the lifespan of both.

Continuing to charge any rechargeable battery when it has already been fully charged damages and shortens the life of the battery. It can even damage the internal Power Management System of the device if done over a sustained period of time and/or for prolonged periods of time.

When your notebook only shows 75% as the maximum charging level, this is an indication that one or more (probably two) of the individual cells that make up the battery are fully depleted, damaged and probably no longer capable of storing a charge, for the reasons given above. You should stop charging this battery after it has reached 75%, otherwise more cells are likely to become damaged and so on until the entire battery is dead, unresponsive and useless.

i want to know how to completely deplete the battery before charging it again


Use your cell as long as its battery depletes completely itself or play Music, Games or call in order to deplete your battery completely.
When your cell gives "Empty Battery" or "Low battery" type warning for three times and turns off itself your cell's battery is empty then. Recharge it till its battery full to have more talk time then usually you have.
