My samsung sgh a777 gets hot when I charge battery and my new full battery last only 6 hours. Thanks.


hi there!

battery life actually depends on how much you use the phone. you'll find it on the manual that you have, (product specs). age of the phone shortens the battery life aswell. its also normal for the phone to heat up when we're charging it (but make sure its only warm and not super hot). none original chargers (imitations, local) can make the phone too hot too. so first things to check would be these, but if you're using all original parts for your phone, and if the phone is not even a year old, and you think its too hot when being charged and you're seldomly using it for calls or internet in a day, then bring it to a samsung shop so that they can replace it for you ;)

How long will the battery in my portable computer last?


System batteries for portable computers are in general considered a consumable item. Because of that the battery warranty is normally limited to 1 year from the time of purchase.

The average life cycle of a battery is roughly 300 to 500 discharge recharge cycles, or about 18 months. The varies from system to system and battery types. Lithium Ion (LI) Batteries last longer than a Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) ones. The pattern of use also effects the lifespan of the battery.

As they age, the battery run time gets shorter and shorter as a normal progression of the battery life. So a 4 year old battery may run just fine, for 15 or 20 minutes. Failing batteries may also display LED indications on the system (On a Dell it will flash orange 4 times then green once)

Once a battery starts to degrade, it is time to buy a replacement. Some sources are:

Hi guys! Got a question regarding apple chip on nike shoes. Is the sensor battery replaceable? How long does it last?


No, the sensor's battery is not replaceable or rechargeable. The sensor's battery has a life of over 1000 active hours. The sensor sends a low battery signal when there is around 2 weeks of life remaining (based on usage pattern), indicating that the sensor needs to be replaced. Battery life will vary considerably based on use and other factors.

Most Nike + iPod runners and walkers can just drop the sensor in their Nike+ shoes and forget about it. When inactive, the sensor enters stand-by mode to save battery life.

When to recharge batter


hi right to be honest both ways are correct, but if your using it every day then its best to put it back on the charger after every use, but the problem with this is that the battery never goes totally flat, so never does a full recharge this reduces the life of the battery by upto 50% so if you are using it regular and need it charged daily then its best to once a month let the battery go totally flat so that it wont even make a sound then do a full recharge.
Doing this will ensure the battery remains at peak performance and make it last longer.

If how ever your only using it say once a week then its best to only charge after the battery has gone flat due to the fact that it would remain on charge longer and cause the battery to over heat reducing the life span of the battery.

But witch ever method you use always let the battery go totally flat once a month then do full recharge this will prolong the life of the battery and ensure it keeps working at full power.

Let me know if you have further questions ok

How long should a crv3 battery last?


I use crv3 batteries in my Pentax istD. Believe it or not, they last over a year! Keep in mind that the simple act of testing the voltage of a crv3 will shorten its life. Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Sometimes, an invisible film on the contacts forms and gives a false reading of battery life.

I have a brand new Lenovo R61, but the battery doesn't last for more than 1.5 hrs even after a full charge. The spec says it should last at least 3.5 hrs. They sent me a new one but it's performing the...


I would contact support, but the 3.5 is probably exaggerated. Spinning the CD-Rom takes juice, but you don't report doing that. You could try the power settings. Don't know where they are in Vista. Control panel, power probably.
