BATTERY CARE

1.  Some batteries are shrink-wrapped with a clear cellophane wrapper.  Remove the wrapper and install the battery into your phone.  It is not uncommon for your phone's battery meter to give a false reading of the battery's charge until the completion of three charging cycles.

2.  Charge your battery overnight or for at least 8 to 12 hours before unplugging the charger.

Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH0 batteries - Be sure to charge a NiMH battery fully and drain it fully before recharging.  This is called a deep cycle.  You can use the phone until the battery is completely drained.  This will properly condition the battery and will ensure that it will operate at its maximum capacity.  NiMH batteries need to be deep cycled once every 3 months or every 40 charge cycles to prevent the "memory effect".  This is recommeded for all NiMH batteries.

Lithium Ion (Li-lon) batteries - Carge time maybe less that NiMH batteries and do not require deep cycling.

Lithium Polymer (Li-Poly) batteries - are the newest chemistry of battery.  Follow the same recommendation for the Li-lon battery.

ALWAYS: Use a charger designed to work with your phone.  Charge batteries at room temperature.  Follow Charging Instructions.

NEVER: Never Freeze a battery.  Do not short circuit, crush, drop, penetrate, expose to high temperature or disassemble any battery.  Never come in contact with the fluid of gel within any battery.  If exposure occurs, flush with water for 15 min.

BULGING BATTERIES need to be removed from the cell phone and replaced.

DIRTY BATTERY CONTACTS should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab from time to time.  Make sure no cotton is left on the contact points.

Lithium based batteries should never get hot in the charger.  If this happens the battery is faulty or the charger is not functioning properly.  Discontinue using the battery or charger immediately.

STORAGE: Store batteries in a cool dry place away from heat and metal objects.  If you plan on storing your battery for future use, store the battery at partial charge.  Batteries are not intended to be stored for more than one year.  NiMH batteries will self-discharge and should be deep cycled every 3 months.

PROPER DISPOSAL of BATTERIES-Bring your old cell phone batteries to our office or the closest battery drop off location near you.
