Question about Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia Unlocked Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I have a Samsung Omnia and my battery life is down from 2 to 3 days between charges to 8 hours. Thought it was the battery and replaced it but still have the same problem. I have checked settings and can't seem to find anything that is out of the ordinary. When I first purchased the phone I could consistently go 24 to 48 hours without recharging and now I can't make it through a work day without it going dead.

It could be some application, that is draining the batt. Do a hard reset and see if any better.

Went to use it and it won't come on. Thought battery might be dead and plugged it in and it still won't come on.


Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.

New Samsung Galaxy Note 10.0 battery life and charging time


Sounds normal to me!!
The further away from wifi router you are the more power is needed by the wifi card.... etc etc so the 8 hours is in perfect conditions with the screen brightness at minimum and no apps running!! It's safe to say that, whatever battery life is quoted for any device you should only expect to acheive half that in the real world.
The screen is prob responsible for 80% of the battery's power drain. Turn the brightness down. Stay in same room as router. close down un-used apps that demand cpu and network (wifi card) time.
Shut it down completely when charging don't just let slip into standby. Also don't charge it on a cold or hot place such as a window sil. To high or low tempretures will increase charge time and will damage the battery lowering it's capacity.

My office has 2 Tekk NT 90 radios, but no user's manual or instructions for them. Need basic operation info so they can be used.


The Tekk NT90 is a basic walkie-talkie style radio. With a good battery they will operate a full business day on a charge. The radios should be charged overnight (or 8-12 hours) after the battery is depleted or nearly depleted. If using these in a business situation you can usually go a full 8-hr day on a charge. Battery packs have approx a 2 year life expectancy before needing replaced.

If you need more info, contact Tekk Inc at 800-521-8355.

Best regards.

How much time to we have to charge Samsung Omnia phone


Depends on your firmware. Updating your firmware on the somsaung site will prolong your battery life. Mine used to last about 2hours with heavy repative use. Music, gps, video etc. Standby would last about a day and a half with a few calls. Now it lasts about 4-5hours with heavy use and standby up to about 4 days with calls here and there.

Battery life is rubbish


The first time you charge a battery, you must charge it for at least 16 hours, otherwise the battery builds up a memory, and it will not charge further than that. Try buying a new battery and charging it for at least 16 hours, if this was not done the first time. If this was done, or you are using a new battery, it might be that the battery connector is faulty and needs to be replaced
