Question about HP iPAQ H5550 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Battery Is the battery life/usage on the h5550 usually short? I lowered the backlite time, I don't use any of the indicator tones, and as of yet, I haven't used the bluetooth or wireless connections. Is there another battery that will give me longer usage time? Thanks for any comments.

Re: Battery

If you take a look on the back of your battery, it will give you a mAh value ie 1550mAh, the higher the number, the longer it will last.. most replacement batteries are 1550mAh, and very cheap, but you can get 3000mAh batteries, which should last twice the time, but they´re as much as 5 times as expensive... they obviously take longer to charge too..

My t-mobile g1 keeps randomly turning off and wont turn back on unless i put it to a charger but then when it comes back on the battery life is fine. it only happens when calling people, listening to...


Hi,

I believe this could be a battery,well we have the same phone and all process you take note sounds like it was my problem before.

Why is this things happening?

Battery can be easily damage due to improper usage like charging the phone while calling,listening to music,browsing etc. two current supply is entering your phone simultaneously. One is coming from the battery powered and the other is coming on the dc charger.the result, it will make your battery deform.

Just replace it a new one and for sure it will be fine again.But please avoid or minimized using your phone while on charge.To be able to preserve your battery life for long time usage.


Hope this simple guide helps you. Thank you for visiting FixYa....

Why my battery have a short time of life?


HTC phones and all android phones use much more battery life then your previous phones. they run many applications all at the same time, whether you want it to or not. To save battery life, download an app killer from the marketplace. I purchased an extended battery and it made it much more tolerable about charging occurances

The battery life of my ku990 is abnormal


The two main causes of battery life loss that no one thinks of are:

backlight settings (if you don't really need the backlight to stay on for 60 seconds after the last button press, lower it. this is a huge waste of battery life and it is easily changed in the settings menu of nearly every phone i have seen)

poor signal areas (when you have low signal, you phone wastes its battery life searching for acquirable signal. if it is unable to locate the signal, it will continue to search. this search uses up your battery life quite rapidly)

Battery goes flat very quickly


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you use a car charger, use a wall plug instead and replace the battery; because a lot of car chargers can harm battery life…especially if that is all you’ve ever used. Also check the settings on the phone, if you have disabled power saving features that dim the screen after so many seconds then the backlight will drain the battery very quickly. Use name brand batteries and not the ones that come with the phone. If you have not tried to buy a new battery yet, the ones that come with the phone can often ****. Finally, make sure that you do not have a short in your wall charger and that the first time you use a new battery you charge it fully to begin with and don’t charge it again until it is completely depleted. Supposedly newer batteries do not have to be primed, but I find it is a good practice anyway.

Battery usage


Yes simply because of the heat your computer makes it will deteriorate faster. If used for long periods take battery out and store in room temperature place. Remember that not using the battery for long periods(days-weeks) can be bad for your battery.So try to use it once in a while.

Lying ipaq H5550!


It's a problem with either the memory board or the button board. With my h5550, the bottom buttons started to stop working and eventualy the PPC stoped charging all together. You can find parts for it online. If all the buttons are working fine, then it's most likely the motherboard. Otherwise it should be the button board.

Fully charge the Mobilepro battery


No. Lithium Ion batteries prefer a partial rather than a full discharge. Repeated full discharging robs the battery of its capacity (useful life), the Lithium Ion battery prefers shallow over repetitive deep discharge cycles. Besides cycling, the performance of the Li-ion is also affected by aging. Capacity loss through aging is independent of use however the capacity is affected by both aging and usage. Battery wear-down on lithium-based batteries is caused by two activities: actual usage or cycling and aging. The wear-down affects by usage and aging apply to all batteries but this is more pronounced on lithium-based systems. The Li-ion batteries prefer a shallow discharge. Partial discharges produce less wear than a full discharge and the capacity loss per cycle is reduced. Simple Guidelines to extend useful life of the battery Charge the Li-ion often, except before a long storage. Avoid repeated deep discharges. Keep the Li-ion battery cool. Prevent storage in a hot car. Never freeze a battery.
