Hi. I hear conflicting advice on how to charge a cell phone battery. Will overcharging shorten life of battery or make it's charge time shorter? Does charging it before it's completely drained affect it's "charged memory" so that it won't hold a charge for as long anymore? Before using a new cell phone battery, does it need to be charged for 24 hours whether it needs it or not? Is it bad to do short charges and start using it again before battery is fully charged? Thanks a lot.
Okay, i have a few env's. charging is a problem. When you do get a new battery you should charge it for 24 hours or at least until the phone says fully charged, if not it will effect the over all battery life. and no, charging it before it is fully drained is not bad. but if the phone does die DO NOT turn it on until it is on the charger because that will effect the battery life also. alsooooo the short charges are bad, but not if you do it frequently. anymore questions email me [email protected]

Please replace with same rating/type as given on cell that is normally NI MH, Rating current rating - 600ma, 900ma, higher ma means lasts longer after charge. Brand- panasonic, sanyo, any standard brand, initially charge for 10 to 12 hours. Pl do not keep hand set always on dock, this overcharges the battery, shortening cell life.
In order to keep your battery life from minimizing over time..only charge your battery when it is dying or dead, because when you charge it when its still green or on yellow ect. you are overcharging it..trust me.i learned this the hard way..an all i have to do was only charge when necessary.
Always allow your mobile phone's battery to drain before charging it. Let it warn "battery low" at least three times before you can charge. charging in-between before battery is drained, shortens the battery life gradually. this is from a personal experience.
This depends upon the quality of the car battery, and how you take care of it. If it is in a car and the car is driven daily, you should expect the battery will last 5-7 years.
If the car is not driven for extended periods of time, a battery tender should be placed on the battery, and failure to do this can ruin a battery. If it is a boat battery, during the off season the battery should be removed from the boat and a battery tender put on the battery.
If your battery has removeable caps on the top, make sure the battery is filled to the interal ring with distilled water. It is especially important to do this before charging a dead battery.
Do not store batteries directly on cement (place a piece of 2x4 under it). I know why, but batteries stored directly on the cement seem to die much faster and have a shorter overall life.
Actually, you can't overcharge the battery. The base is designed to hold the handset indefinitely. Once the battery is charged it doesn't do any damage. You probably just don't have the battery charged enough to use the phone. Leave the handset on the base overnight, let the thing charge, and it should work properly.
Sadly phone batteries don't have the long life they used too. There isn't a lot you can do besides purchase a new battery. Samsung only covers the battery for one year from date of purchase, so you might be able to get a replacement if you have had it for less than a year. Otherwise, eBay is your friend. You can extend the life of the battery by changing some habits of how you use the device.
- Let the battery run completely down about (dead phone) about once a month. This helps ensure a longer life.
- Try to avoid using car chargers. The power provided isn't always the most stable and can greatly shorten the life of your battery.
Once you get a new battery, don't charge it right away. Let it run down the first time to empty before first time charge. That will ensure a long, healthy battery life.
maybe your battery is too worn out and we know that the battery has life expectancies. try to have a new one, an original one to help you maximize the battery life. do not overcharge your battery for it may shorten the life span.
try to change your battery, maybe it's worn out. 2nd, maybe your charger is broken. if you have another nokia cellular phone with the same charger, try to charge it up. if it won't charge, then, your charger is damaged. an advice: let your battery be drained before you charge it up so that your battery will last a bit longer than the actual battery life itself and don't overcharge it also. if it is full, unplug your charger always.
if you use the lcd screen a lot, which i know i do, it really shortens the battery life. good to carry extras, NimH batteries have a shorter life but can be recharged 100s of times.... try different sets and let me know if any particular set gives you less life than the others. Sometimes NimH batteries go bad, usually the charger lights will reveal this when you go to charge them... but one bad battery will greatly shorten the battery life. you are lucky the camera gives you the option of using either, so you could, say you were at disney world and your nimh were dead, pickup some AA to get you thru the day. rsvp ;)
