Well, the G1 is a smartphone and it's constantly on the internet so it's obviously going to use a lot more battery power. However 3 hours is ridiculously short! You could try recalibrating the battery. To do this you use your phone until it has completely run out of charge and switches itself off. Then you turn it on again and again until all that it shows is a red LED and it refuses to turn on. After this you charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will help improve your battery life.

The battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Lithium ion battery does not last as long


There is no such thing as a memory system in your battery. If you charge the battery until the green light on the charger comes on, that is as much as the battery can/will safely charge to. With Lithium batteries, they will fully charge whether they are at 75%, 50% or 10% capacity when placed on the charger and discharge to 0% if you use them that long. If you need the battery before the green light comes on and you use it, it will still fully charge when replaced on the charger. All batteries do discharge at different rates. Most not noticeably but a few will discharge fast enought to be noticable. If it affects your usage of the tool, you may want to exchange it or get it replaced under warranty because it will only get worse with age.

I bought it last year, but now it seems there is a problem with charging the battery. It only charges about 22 seconds then it stops, I have to keep eyes on the camera when it is charging, when the green...


It sounds like the battery is damaged and needs to be replaced. If it charges far too fast and discharges far too fast, a few of the cells within the battery may be dead.

The battery discharge so fast even with a new battery


Hello,

Your phone battery terminals are corrode that is why it discharges all your phone batteries so fast.

All you need to do is to replace the battery terminal of your phone and you will see that your battery will last you very long.

Take care.

My cliq does not charge actually seems to discharge fasterwhen plugged in


If you're charging on a PC it needs to be "active" not "sleeping" or in"energy saver mode". Once the screen saver is on; the phone stops charging and tries to sync back with the computer this drains the battery real fast.

My g1 will not charge fast like it use 2


Have you tried recalibrating the battery? To do this you use the phone until it completely runs out of battery and switches itself off. Make sure it has completely run out by continuing to turn it back on until nothing happens except a red LED coming on. Then charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will improve your battery life.

Discharging fast


Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall
