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.
