Battery Recharging Myth-Busting: Don't Completely Drain Your LiIon Batteries

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Articles & Resources" @ 01:30 PM

"Battery-centric web site Battery University explains the real relationship behind battery life and charging. Lithium-ion batteries-the batteries present in most modern smartphones and laptops-don't need to be fully discharged every once in a while to retain battery life, as many of us have been told. In fact, it's quite the opposite..."

Over the years, I'm sure we've all heard a lot of crazy battery advice: don't recharge your phone/laptop/MP3 player until it's completely dead; don't charge it too often; when you're not using it, take out the battery, etc. Much like telling someone they need to defrag their Wi-Fi connection, some of these "tips" just aren't true. This article gives you some important tips about how to maximize the battery life on your portable device.

Are You Having Battery Trouble With Your Windows Phone 7?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Talk" @ 05:40 PM

Over the past month or two, I've seen scattered reports of people having trouble with their Windows Phone 7 devices related to the battery charging. I haven't had any problems yet, but I don't think this is an isolated incident. Symptoms include:

  • Connecting your phone via USB to your computer and having the battery drain rather than charge
  • Connecting your phone via USB to a wall charger and having the battery not charge at all even after hours of being connected
  • The battery is showing a low power indicator, but if you power off the phone, take out the battery, put it back in, and power up the phone, it will actually be fully charged
