Is not working I need to connect my phone charger how to change fuse

Phone chargers usually don't have fuses that are replaceable. If it is a car charger then you would unscrew the barrel near the center tip of the end that plugs into the cigarette lighter socket. That's where the fuse is.

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.

I have a samsung f480i.. and lately it just died, when i plug it into the battery charger, all it does is keep flashing the samsung logo and gets extremly hot, it doesnt even turn on anymore, just flashes...

If the cell phone senses that the charging is too strong (that is, if the charger is giving too much voltage that could make damage) the cell phone will react with a message tha tcharging is wrong or by blinking until you remove the overcharging item. Also, it could be that the battery is shorting (internally) and causing the charger to react toa short and the cell phone sense this as incorrect voltage, and thereforeis warning that something is wrong. Try the charger problem by attaching the cell phone to someone' elses phone charger and see if it continues, or if you have or can cheaply buy a car charger adapter for the cigarette lighter outlet; this will tell you if the wall electric charger is at fault or it is the battery.. if you still get the same results with the car charger, hopefully you can go to a cell store or a friend and try another battery before buying one. If a different battery does not stop the blinking, the problem is the phone.. if it is ithe phone, try turning off the phone and wait one minute before turning on.

My cell get heated when i put charge batt chg circuit of cell isnot functioning i get batt chg from universal charger nokia1100

Usually it is the battery hat is becoming old enough to internally short and this will cause it to work poorly and not ever fully charge, and get warmer than normal or hot when attempting to charge for more than 1/2 hour. Sometimes the chargr can go bad and over charge, thus making the battery too warm. if you have a car cell phone charger that plugs into cigarette lighter outlet , you can atach this and see if battery gets too warm, but these chargers usually charge faster than electric plug-in type, so expect some warmth within 20 minutes, but again if too warm than you know itis the battery. For these unnits batteries are not expensive.
