New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using
your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some
batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You
can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by
connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the
provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable
provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging
is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the
battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging
icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the
battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full
battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not
remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the
AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging
when it overheats.
When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately
save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power
adapter to charge the battery. • Turn oﬀ your device. Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. JimmyC
Hi Robert, actually its LG and the batteries are the worst - i did the same thing with my brand new shine! You need to be careful when you start a new battery - make sure you drain it 100%, then charge for 6-8hrs, then drain 100% then recharge - after that you are good.
a new chocolate battery goes for $25-40
If both the charger and the battery are warm to the touch, the battery is probably charged.
The low battery level warning level is learned by the phone. To train it, allow the battery to run down once until the phone stops working, then recharge it.
The best way totest the charging operation would be to try using the phone. Fully charged you should get about 6 hours of talk time from a fully charged battery, and at least a week of standby operation.
