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.

    No manual came with battery. Even if one did, there were other questions in my posting. Thanks anyway.

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 britkneesaysss@aim.com

Which battery cell is better for ntl cordless vs2000?


Please replace with same rating/type as given on cell that is normally NI MH, Rating current rating - 600ma, 900ma, higher ma means lasts longer after charge. Brand- panasonic, sanyo, any standard brand, initially charge for 10 to 12 hours. Pl do not keep hand set always on dock, this overcharges the battery, shortening cell life.

Tip

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.

I have a GE model 25836CE-B cordless phone. My problem is this: when the phone is off the charger base, after a few minutes it will keep on beeping even if no one pressed the paging button at the charger...


Actually, you can't overcharge the battery. The base is designed to hold the handset indefinitely. Once the battery is charged it doesn't do any damage. You probably just don't have the battery charged enough to use the phone. Leave the handset on the base overnight, let the thing charge, and it should work properly.

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!
