Hi, When I purchased my phone at timtechs one of their tech support told me not to charge the battery unless it's really empty. Recharging the phone while there's still battery left will shorten the life span of your battery and you have to keep in mind to put it away from other appliances as this drains the battery (people have a habit of putting the phone on top/ beside the fridge or TV). Also if you are worried that your phone will run out of battery while you are outside and you badly needed your phone but you cannot recharge your phone since your battery is still halfway empty then you can always buy a spare battery and use it alternately with the original battery of your phone making sure of course to have it fully charged as you go. Hope this helps

Their knowledge is outdated. That was true for NiMH but Li batteries are different, you can change and unplug any time. Also, the less you wait for the battery to become low for charging the better it is for life span. I read that on a battery manufacturer website.

Hi Fairen.
I am Mary. It is not necessary that you should charge your phone battery whenever it is empty. I think L-ion Battery is good for all the kind of Instruments. It lasts long as my self experience says. I would say that do not follow any misguidance.
Thanks You.

Almost all phones today are delievered with a Lithium based cell.

So, a lot of "old knowledge" is still floating around as "the truth" about discharging and charging.

1. Never deliberately fully discharge your Lithium based cell!!! You can distroy it if it's discharged outside of the phone, for example with a bulb. The phone itself sees to that the cell is not fully discharged.

2. There is no need for any special treatment for new cells, no "breaking in" of a new cell.

3. Charge it whenever you feel like it, preferably often. It does not harm the cell if charged often.

4. All Lithium based cells have built-in intelligence for perfecting charge/discharge.

5. The capacity of a Lithium based cell actually gradually increases. After about 5-10 charge/discharge cycles it has reached its full capacity.

6. Don't believe those manuals saying that you should fully drain the cell and the charge for 10-14 hours. IT IS NOT FOR LITHIUM CELLS, it's for alder types of batteries containing more than one cell. Lithium "batteries" has got only one cell, they're not really "batteries". Battery means that more cells have been connected inside the battery.

What I do is that I turn it off when I go to bed. This simple practice increased my battery life like anything.

Actually, i have one spare battery BST-38 for my K850i thanks to playtime and rookwise. Now i want to preserve the spare one. Currently, i am using this one and kept aside the one which i got with my K850i. Let me tell you that both batteries are genuine one-original. What can i do?

That was exactly how I understood it - it's worse to leave your battery to run near flat before recharging.

I see SE have put up their own mini version of this thread on the battery pages on SE.com Click 'Charging FAQ' under Features. http://www.sonyericsson.com/c[....]/overview/bst-38?cc=ie&lc=en#a

Some general battery info too! (click 'Energy Efficiency' under Features)

There's really not much I can do for my battery, seeing as how my X10 used up 50% of it's battery during standby. POS...

Posted by Xion
thanks

Posted by RyanJMB
That was very helpful information, i will be using that, i have never had an iPhone before, but they drain battery power like no ones business, so going to try as much as possible to keep the battery at its best for as long as possible

2. Disable sounds and vibrating alert
3. Lower the Brightness of screen.
4. If you are not using an application switch it off.
5. Keep the battery contacts clean

That advice will help for sure, but how boring! I like my screen bright, I like to come back to apps in the same place I left them, disable sounds and vibrating alert?? How will I know if someones calling or texting?

I suppose turning off bluetooth isn't such a bad thing, but it means if I want to bluetooth something to my handset I have to actually touch the thing, how painful...

Ya, thanks for sharing good information. i like it..

Posted by Allen29
Yup, rhea is right. But the most important thing is that, dont over use thy cellphone

thanks for this helpul thread..godbless.

Actually, lithium polymer batteries and lithium ion batteries need not be discharged before you charge it. It actually reduces the life cycle of the battery if you discharge it too often. The number one enemy of these types of batteries is heat. In the manual of my SE Elm, it is actually advised that I charge my phone as often as possible in order to prolong battery life.

N.B.
The discharge-recharge of batteries that we had became so accustomed of is because the older types of batteries like the Ni-CD and Ni-MH batteries which really need to be cycled because of the memory effect. The newer Li-Po and Li-Ion type of batteries does not suffer from the same memory effect as the old Ni-Cd type.

Hi again, Jojo!

These are wonderful bits of information when it comes to battery information. I am about to start the third charging cycle of my new phone's battery and the first two cycles I did were based on the second set of battery facts you mentioned.

Thank you, kabayan!

Posted by jms2367
@alenn

Wow! The phone melted? What was it? was it due to over charging that the batteries overheated?

It's a good thing that modern chargers stops charging when the phone is already fully charged but I still remove the phone from the charger once the phone is fully charged.

@aldrinus

Glad to be of some help kabayan!

Cheers.

Posted by aldrinus
kabayan Jojo, these are actually some of the post that are really worth reading as they contain very useful information indeed.... thanks again!

1.Turn off your Bluetooth
2. Disable vibration mode.
3.lower the brightness at specific level.
4.Set the Power saver mode and the listening volume to the low values will help too
5.Switch off the phone if you don’t use.

It is important to condition (fully charged and then discharged) battery every two or three weeks. If not, can significantly shorten the battery life (this does not apply to Li-Ion batteries which do not require air conditioning). Filling just run the battery of the device until it shuts down or until you get a low battery warning. Then recharge the battery user manual for instructions. If the battery is not used for months or more, it is recommended that you remove the device and stored in a cool, dry and clean. This keeps the battery will lose its runtime, and possibly damage the battery or device. It is normal that battery becomes hot to touch during charging and discharging. Only in extreme heat should be considered as potentially dangerous and the battery for a professional.

@alfiealvins

Conditioning applies only to Ni-Cd and Ni-MH batteries and like you said, it does not apply to Li-Ion batteries. It also does not apply to Li-Po batteries which does not suffer from the memory effect like I posted earlier.
