How to extend battery life

After I charged the battery for 16 hrs, should I allow the battery to completely discharge before recharging or does it matter if I leave the phone on the charger between use?
Thanks Naomi

-great question
-the answer depends upon the battery type used in your phone
-look on the battery itself for one of the following letter types (NiCad, NImH, or Li-Ion)
-if the phone is fairly new....sounds like it...the it is most likely Lithium ion....which is great!
-to answer your question then...
NImH, -no
or Li-Ion-no
read below for further details

-if it is a NiCad (nickle cadmium) then YES....try to BUT this is a it will then 'die' when you least want/need it to
-this battery type will develop a false memory....where it thinks it is dead or fully charged when it actually isn't....very irritating
-a better solution is to every so often do it right it down...etc.
-this will remove the memory as it build up..just the nature of this technology

if the battery is nickle metal hydride (NiMH) then use as memory buildup..these are excellent on many fronts

last most commonly used is Lithium -ion (Li-Ion)....which is almost now the standard for high drain devices like your phone (cameras, etc.)...these DO not develop a memory...last long periods of time without use..etc

-there are a few other types of rechareages...but I';ve never seen them in phones

-if you need any other help...jjust ask...please!
-hope that FIX-Ya'd you...please rate me....and note that anything other than a FIX-Ya will actually reduce my rank....I didn't make the please consider the impact of your ranking :)

Low Battery Life.

You may have a bad battery. These batteries also lose capacity over time and over the number of charge/recharge cycles.
In addition, many batteries need to be fully discharged about once a month in order to keep themselves calibrated.
Once you lose the ability to get a complete charge, you need to replace the battery.

How do I revive a Hilti 36 volt battery from a TE6 nicdm

There is no way to revive a rechargeable battery once they go bad. Rechargeable batteries have a lifespan that is affected by how many times they have been discharged and recharged and how fully discharged they are between recharges. Most batteries will last longer if they are fully discharged before recharging and allowed to cool completely before recharging, heat being the main culprit to their longgevity. They will eventually reach a point where they will not charge anymore or if they do they will not hold a full charge for any appreciable time. The best test for the batteries ability to take a charge is to completely deplete the battery either through working it or sitting on the couch with the trigger pulled until it stops working completely, let it cool down then put it in the charger. If it charges, use it to see how long it lasts. If it dies quickly it needs to be replaced.

My yh-925 mp3 player and battery does not seem to hold it's charge when after being charged from the mains adapter. Coluld this be a fault with the recharablebattery?

Yes, rechargeable batteries only have a certain life cycle which is dependant on how they are used and how they are charged. Rechargeable batteries should be occasionally fully discharged and then recharged to increase their life cycle.

A replacement battery can be purchased from eBay complete with Instructions on how to replace it.

FS240BX battery how Long should it take to charge.

Hi .Charge the battery initially for 9 hours.

After the initial charge, under normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the power pack is run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged.

The red light is just a power indicator. The light will not go out, change color, or blink when the charging has been completed.

To prolong power pack life, avoid leaving the power pack on charge for extended periods of time (over 30 days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly reduce overall power pack life.

The power pack will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal usage.

There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteries
Hope this was of some help to you.

Asus Eee PC Series 1000he Battery Life

You can try to completely discharge and recharge a few times to take it through its full cycle. However, you probably won't get much improvement. Batteries wear out with time and, after one year, I'd expect to see significant capacity loss on a machine such as this with typical usage patterns.

Charged and ready to shoot

Why do you say they've expired? Rechargeables last for 1000 cycles, which should give most people several years use. If they're corroded, go to Radio Shack or Best Buy for replacements. Be sure to charge AT LEAST 14 hours to get the most out of the batteries.
