Your battery has likely been over charged. When this happens the battery itself may swell up.(become thicker). If you remove the battery and find it difficult to place it back into the casing, this swelling is likely the cause.
An overcharged battery needs to be replaced.

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.


try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

How long should it take to recharge my iphone 4 brand new battery ?


The first two or three times, don't look, but normally, when you use a 1 A (1000mA/h) charger, within 4 hours. I don't like to use the iPad charger that can deliver 2 Amps, because it will heat up the battery. And the wormer it gets, the sooner you need a new battery.
But, if you want to find out the quality from your battery, just visit the genius bar in an Apple store. They test it for free, and also can point out if there is an app consuming too muck power. I went in with my iPhone 4 and they found an older firmware version. They put in a newer firmware (not the iOS) and since then it is running 2 or 3 days with one charge, with a 4 years old battery. Before I went in, the battery would drain in less than 6 hours.

Battre low problam


Hello,

When your phone comes up with a battery low information, then it means you need to recharge the battery using the charger of the phone. If recharging using your charger does not help, then i will advice you get to insert the battery in another phone to try to charge there, it is definitely going to charge, when it charges fully, leave it in the phone phone and try to monitor the hours the battery lasts, if it last long, the the battery is okay, but if it does not, then it means the battery is weak bad need to be replaced.

Also test the phone by inserting a well tested battery that is fully charged into the phone and monitor how long it will last in the phone. if it last long, then the phone is okay, but if it drains off fast, then it means the phone is draining the battery, and that is the problem from the phones terminal head.

Also try to pad the battery in the phone with a folded paper so as to tighten the battery and make good connection with the phones terminal.

Also check the phones connection port.

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.

What is the maximum charging time of drained batteries?


There is no maximum - it will not harm the batteries if you leave it on charge too long. The minimum time to fully recharge should be 3 to 6 hours depending on the power source. If you are using a mains charger it should fully recharge in 3 hours, but longer if you are charging via a usb cable from a pc.

IF I WILL CHARGE MY PHONE IN A FEW MINUTES IT SHOWS FULLY CHARGE


I'm not certain what your question is you made a statement more or less.

I do know that alot of cell phones will show that they are fully charged after minutes of charging, but then very quickly go back down to almost dead within an hour. This is because the phone is not actually fully charged. Most batterys need at least an hour minimum to be fully charged after its drained completely.

LG KG800 charging problem.


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

thanks
