Something you may not know Sunday! The Lowdown on Cell Phone Batteries
I got this article from Woman's Day, April 17, 2010 issue. It is something you may know of or something you may not. Maintain your knowledge or gain some :)
Tech 101: The Lowdown on Cell Phone Batteries
Charge it! Most batteries won't overcharge-you can leave the device plugged in overnight without a problem.
Know the lifespan! Batteries only have 300 to 500 charges in them (a charge "counts" when there's less than half of the battery's life left). Once the battery no longer holds a charge (usually one to two years later), get a new one.
Buy it right! If you're buying a replacement battery, make sure it says "cells from Japan," where they have the highest production standards. If it doesn't, you could be buying a battery that's improperly made and will overload and burn out! Replacement cell phone batteries cost between $20 and $50.
