Car charger without overcharge protection - fear of overcharging Mororola Razr V3

I have a car charger for a GPS navigator. I do not think it has an overcharge protection feature. It does fit the mini USB charge port on my Mororola Razor V3.
What are the dangers of overcharging the battery?
If I keep a constant check on the phone's 'Charge Complete' indicator to disconnect, how much potential damage would result if I go 'over' a couple of minutes?
I do not feel the need to purchase a separate 'Mororola Razor V3' specifice car charger ?!?!!?!?!? I have too many other unusable ones as it is.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thx - CH

    What is the difference between a mobile v3 charger (for my Motorola Razor v3) and the mobile GPS car charger? I was told (by Cingular - Ha Ha) I needed a Mororola brand mobile charger for the overcharge protection feature - I was also told (by Cingular) that not all mobile car chargers have this 'important battery life protection' feature.



    Do I need (really need) a mobile v3 charger (specific for the the Motorola Razor v3) ?????? Or, is it just 'preferrable'.



    Thanks for the help & insight - Bajanguru (and all those who help by replying).

How to charge a battery of this car?

Put a new alernater an still over charging


Over charging could be the result of several things including:
    Faulty Voltage Regulator
  1. A car's battery will overcharge if the voltage regulator isn't working correctly. A voltage regulator is usually part of the alternator, and is used to keep a steady flow of voltage to the battery. If the voltage regulator is defective, it will send either too little or too much charge to the battery. If it sends too much, the car battery will overcharge. The voltage regulator is easily replaceable at an easily affordable price, sometimes for as little as twenty dollars, as of 2009.
  2. Faulty Alternator
  3. Sometimes the alternator itself can be at fault. The alternator is the device that converts the mechanical power of the engine into electrical power to charge the battery. When an alternator breaks, it usually stops creating electricity for the battery, which will then eventually die. However, if the wrong alternator is placed in the car, or if the alternator is running at the wrong pace, it will create too much energy for the car battery, causing it to overcharge. The alternator is another easily replaced part.
  4. Incorrect Charger Use
  5. If a battery charger is used to charge your battery outside of your car, improper use of the charger can result in overcharging. If a battery is placed on the charger too long, it can result in overcharging, and a significant decrease in your battery's lifespan and efficiency. This is why it is important to read about your specific battery and understand how long it needs to charge to be effective. Too much charge will lead to problems.
  6. Faulty Battery Chargers
  7. Sometimes chargers can be faulty. Their settings may be wired incorrectly, or the charges labeled incorrectly. As a result, your battery may be getting overcharged, even if you are carefully monitoring your charging. This is a problem that is hard to avoid, as manufacturing mistakes can happen anywhere, anytime without warning. It is a good idea to test your charger regularly to see if it is running correctly.
  8. Heat
  9. Extreme heat in the summer can also have an adverse effect on the car battery. If the battery has been previously overcharged, extreme heat can increase the problems caused by overcharging, and exacerbate any other problems with the battery. This problem can be hard to avoid if you live in a warm climate. The only real way to ensure safety against this problem is to avoid overcharge in the first place.

Can you overcharge a gps battery with a home charger if the system is not turned on?


no it doesn't overcharge, in fact leaving it on the charger all the time extends battery life

Can my Magellan 1420 be left on the car charger all the time without overcharging the battery.


There is nothing in the manual about overcharging, or a warning no to leave the unit plugged in.

Most vehicle lighters do not have power when the car is off.

Some have tow ports, a lighter and a power port.

Check your port, if the lighter does not work when the vehicle is off then you don't have to worry.

You can also contact there support dept at there website.

Motorola V3 RAZR


ya your battery needs to be changed... this type of battery problem occurs due to use of duplicate chargers for charging or by overcharging some thing ... so i suggest you that after taking new battery if you want ur battery to lost long & to give good battery back up then just use original charger & while charging charge until the battery is complete & dnt over charge & charge only when your battery is fully down ... if you follow some of this tips you battery will be fine...

no the phone book is not lost when you take out your old battery bcoz every cell has the RAM memory to store so only it is called as phone memory.....

no need to worry change ur battery dnt take duplicate batteries try taking original ones
