Iphone 3g proper charging
Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the
fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this
time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.
Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY
night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active,
which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer
chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect
the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully
charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not
damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the
battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you
fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating
your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure
your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily
remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the
iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a
cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan.
The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you
can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly
rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure
your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A
