Ok, so as I said on Facebook, first of my own articles is about batteries – our explosive friends.

We just had problems with them, so I have a lot of things to share with you 😉

So, let’s start.

1. Li-ion batteries are forever
Most people saying that’s li-ion batteries aren’t getting older, they don’t have memory-effect etc. It’s a crap 😉 After a year of using phone, your battery will work a few percent less on one charge. My old, stock one Samsung battery have 4 years – when I pushed it into my Ace, it was working only 2h on stock ROM.

2. Chinese batteries aren worse than Samsung’s ones
Yeah, crap again 😀 More, Chinese batteries often works longer than these with Samsung logo. I’m using right now Chinese, gold battery bought on AliExpress for $3,50 (with free shipping :D). I have written on it 2450mAh (when stock one have 1350mAh). I didn’t believed that it’s real 2450mAh battery, but it’s really works longer. Also it’s cooler than my Samsung battery 😀

3. Don’t use your phone on charger
It’s hard to say if it’s true, but I was doing a lot of strange things on connected charger and nothing happened. So I don’t think it’s true.

4. When batteries are explosive?
It’s strange, but always when in use. When your phone is on your desk, when it’s charging, when your battery is swollen or not. Batteries are unstable all the time and it can burn or explode in every moment. Yeah, we’ve ticking time bomb in our pockets 😀

5. Chinese chargers can be dangerous
It’s the only thing here, where I have to agree. You shouldn’t use Chinese chargers with no logo. They’ve unstable voltage, cheap-built and sucks at all. Use chargers only from trusted manufacturers.

6. How to extend battery live?
Hmm… Charge it only when discharged, charge always to full (when your phone is displaying Fully charged after 1h after connecting battery, it isn’t true yet :D), use chargers only from trusted manufacturers. And I think that’s all.

Waiting for your replies and maybe other asks about batteries!

Cheers
Macław

Hello guys,
Yesterday something really bad happened to my original Samsung battery. Everyday it’s getting bigger and bigger, now it’s big enough to create a gap between phone and back case, I have to protect it with tape. I’m afraid it gonna explode soon. In addition, battery withstands only two hours. I’m asking for your help, because now we can’t work at new releases. I don’t need a lot of money, only 15$ to buy a new battery. I hope you can help me.

Cheers, Marcin!
