Correct procedure for charging battery

Hi. I hear conflicting advice on how to charge a cell phone battery. Will overcharging shorten life of battery or make it's charge time shorter? Does charging it before it's completely drained affect it's "charged memory" so that it won't hold a charge for as long anymore? Before using a new cell phone battery, does it need to be charged for 24 hours whether it needs it or not? Is it bad to do short charges and start using it again before battery is fully charged? Thanks a lot.

Re: correct procedure for charging battery

Okay, i have a few env's. charging is a problem. When you do get a new battery you should charge it for 24 hours or at least until the phone says fully charged, if not it will effect the over all battery life. and no, charging it before it is fully drained is not bad. but if the phone does die DO NOT turn it on until it is on the charger because that will effect the battery life also. alsooooo the short charges are bad, but not if you do it frequently. anymore questions email me

Re: correct procedure for charging battery

Batteries no longer have a memory problem so charge away.  I plug mine in every night and have never had a issues.

Samsung gt-b7320 drains battery charge while charging. why?

hello there!
the battery of your phone is not functioning well. meaning, you have to replace a new battery for your phone.
don't use the phone while charging. let it be fully charge. and not to overcharge it too. because using the phone while charging will reduce the life span of the battery.

Battery life

In order to keep your battery life from minimizing over time..only charge your battery when it is dying or dead, because when you charge it when its still green or on yellow ect. you are overcharging me.i learned this the hard all i have to do was only charge when necessary.

*this also applies to ipods.

Prolong cellular battery life

Always allow your mobile phone's battery to drain before charging it. Let it warn "battery low" at least three times before you can charge. charging in-between before battery is drained, shortens the battery life gradually.
this is from a personal experience.

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 ;)

My n73 battery always discharges. what is this problem?

maybe your battery is too worn out and we know that the battery has life expectancies. try to have a new one, an original one to help you maximize the battery life. do not overcharge your battery for it may shorten the life span.

I have 3110 mobile i m havvving charging problem what should i do

try to change your battery, maybe it's worn out. 2nd, maybe your charger is broken. if you have another nokia cellular phone with the same charger, try to charge it up. if it won't charge, then, your charger is damaged. an advice: let your battery be drained before you charge it up so that your battery will last a bit longer than the actual battery life itself and don't overcharge it also. if it is full, unplug your charger always.

How many hours we should charge the battery fist time Nokia-2700

There are basically 3 types of chemicals currently being used for cell phone and laptop batteries. Ni-cad, Ni-mh and Li-ion. There is a fourth makineg its way in Li-ion polymer. A couple things are consistent for all types of batteries no matter what chemical is inside. You must initially give the battery a 12-14 hour charge on the home charger. (Don't use a cigarette adapter for the first charge. This conditions the battery and don't take it off the charger that first time even if the charging indicator says it's full after 3 hours. Also the manufacturer's also state to run it thru 3 charge cycles. What that mean's is that you fully charge and fully drain 3 times. 1 full charge + 1 full drain = 1 charge cycle. Here's where the way you charge the battery starts to differ.

Ni-cad: Mostly only on older devices, has a "memory" effect, should be drained before a full charge is put on it, should be removed after overnight charge or can be overcharged and burnt out.

Ni-mh: Still used for some devices, has slight memory effect but not enough to have to fully drain before the recharge, should not be consistently left on charger after full charge that can eventually burn out battery and shorten usage time.

Li-ion and Li-ion polymer: Used on a lot of newer devices, has no "memory" effect, should be recharged as often as possible, actually likes to be charged and draining it regularly can cause the usage time to be shortened, can NEVER be overcharged so whenever you're near a charger put it on there. Besides those benefits a li-ion battery is lighter and smaller but the chemical can hold more charge than Ni-cad and Ni-mh.

So the one reply to your question said to error on the side of draining the li-ion batteries. This is incorrect information. You want to charge the battery before it gets below a 20% charge. Also batteries will not go bad from accidentally doing the incorrect charging procedure here and there but normally follow the correct procedure. One last note try to use the home charger more often than the cigarette lighter charger for best long term results. Cigarette lighter chargers do not give a full charge (about 95%) which in the long run can damage any type of battery listed.

The battery on the j700 will not charge up keeps pausing and saying paused due to battery life what am i doing wrong

Your battery is going bad, it will no longer hold a charge. There is nothing you can do about it but get a replacement.

Battery life can be shortened by excessive draining, and recharging.
Also faulty manufacturing can cause this.

Sorry to hear about your luck, and thank you for choosing Fixya!
