Tip & How-To about Cell Phones


MANY REVVL 2 Cellphone owners complain online and at the cellphone shop: My is BATTERY is "too weak", it's junk and "won't hold a charge". So your REVVL 2 battery may lasts just 6 hours before you need another charge!

This post tells you WHY! The REVVL 2 PHONE FIRMWARE is the problem... Most of us charge away until the REVVL 2 shows "100% charge", but IN FACT, your REVVL CONTINUES to CHARGE at about .75 AMPS (stock charger)... Folks, that's 750 milliamps and your battery is still ready for more, but we are deceived by that 100% on the phone display!

Ya, they could fix that with the next "update", but don't hold your breath for that.

Please know my REVVL 2 will continue to charge until the automatic charge rate tapers off to about .04 AMPS.Know this "truly full charge" takes almost 2 HOURS (or so) more!

DURING this additional 2 hours+, your REVVL 2 display continues to show "100%" charge, but the phone battery meter is simply calibrated wrong. Most of us LOOK for that 100% ~ then take our cellphone packing, but the batteries are actually UNDERCHARGED, so like you,I am soon going back to my chargers 'prematurely'.

Now after a FULL charge my battery lasts almost 2 1/2 full days!

How do I know? Go to eBay and hunt for: "USB Charger Doctor Red and Blue"VOLTAGE TESTER"... The kind you need looks like this:

Don't buy the version with ONE METER because 'flashes back and forth' between Amps <> Volts again and again ~ it's very distracting and will drive you LOCO! This version takes just a glance to know WHEN your battery really IS charged!

Of course regulators within the charger and cell will prevent overcharging... but how fine to KNOW your REAL battery status and enjoy many more hours (and perhaps a day) between charges.

Where can I buy a battery for my MP3 Player?

generally we need a 3.7v battery in this player which is also used for the classic cellophones. One should try it from India or China where the classic cellphones are still in market. The battery will cost less than 4$ bt the cost of courier or postage will approx 30$ internationally. I will try if u can send me the actual image of the existing battery in case if u want to replace it. I will find the model of the cellphone and then u can buy ur batery from any online shopping website. Check for the battery model number and voltage & amp. I m a banker and have many contacts with cellphone and accessories distributors. u can write me back.. [email protected] else try on any of shopping site. i will wait...

Batery will not hold charge for more than a few hours

If the cellphone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
