IPhone Battery power Problems

I just read that someone is suing Apple, claiming that despite their claims the iphone battery can't last more than 300 recharges. Apple mentioned several times that the battery can be fully recharged 400 times without losing potency. I know the iphone was just released buy I wnated to check if anyone noticed any decrease in battery power.

Re: iPhone Battery power Problems

There is an issue with the IC that handles charging the battery and generating the different voltages the iPhone needs. Historically there have been problems with this chip so I am not surprised you are experiencing glitches with the 3G already. If the problems comes back it is most likely not caused by the battery, since the battery should not cause problems in the first year. If the battery has a manufacturing problem it will not recover spontaneously and you can take it to Apple. If you are out of warranty or unlocked your iPhone there are independent iPhone battery repair services that can open the iphone for you and replace whatever is needed, but they will charge for it.

No, my cousin has one and it works fine, but remember if your battery isnt fully discharged it wont last as long. before you go just charging it all the time you should everynow and then let it run out before you recharge it.

My china iphone run out of power when i switch it on i had a call after receiving the call the phone went of i have charged it for about 4 days now but its still not working

try changing the battery, most defects of china phones are the batteries. they don't last long because those are not really original batteries but only class A batteries.
But I am not really sure if you will be able to find a replacement battery in your area but usually china phones includes 2 batteries.

Quick discharging of the Iphone 3gs battery

Yes its normal. To maintain the most power adjust your brightness bar down to 1/4 or 1/2. Keep the push mail function off when you don't need it. Don't recharge the battery until the unit shuts itself off. Then recharge the battery to max before using. This is called conditioning the battery, even though many say you don't need to on lithum ion batteries because there is no memory effect. But their full of sh.t, cause you do the first time you get the battery and should do it once a month to extend the life of the battery.

I have plugged an extended battery to my iphone - while I was downloading information - Iphone and battery went dead after a while. Now plugging in the Iphone it seems dead - not even itunes see the phone

It's starting to sound like the phone may very well be bricked. Holding down the power button and home button was the first thing that came to mind, so it's too bad that didn't work.

Not all hope is lost, though. You can try and see if somehow you can get the phone in DFU mode, even though it is unresponsive. Follow the directions here. They even have a video to help, which is really helpful, as timing is key with DFU. The only thing you'll be doing is acting as though the iPhone is currently on like in the video, even though yours is not.

If that doesn't work, unfortunately, you may need to make a claim with the extended battery manufacturer and try talking to Apple. The battery company has it in their best interest to fix your situation in an effort to keep you, their customer, happy. Hopefully they see it that way!
