Cellphone Battery Charging?

Cell phone Charger - What charger do you use? Does it charge the battery that fast?

How long does your cellphone battery get charged in full? Does it take one hour? More or less? Last month I have a charger which takes 6 hours before I get full battery. It's really time consuming, so my brother decided to buy a new one. Pretty nice because it just takes less than an hour to have my battery full. How about you? Share your comments here. Thank's and have a nice day everyone!

If the battery is not spoilt, you should need more than 1-2 hours to give it a full charge. Is yours an old battery? 6 hours is way too long. If the battery is not old or spoilt, I suspect it is the charger (though it is less likely).

Maybe it was the battery, you're right. I bought my cellphone from my brother, so it was a second hand unit. I never know that the battery was already spoilt. Thank's for the information!

I don't use cell-phone, but my husbands cell phone gets charged within 1 hour. It all depends on the use,like how many calls you have made, etc.

no, he charges it daily for 1/2 to 1 hr, though he has used it too less, there is a green light indication which shows that the battery is fully charged.

My phone takes an hour to fully charge.Good that you have decided to buy another phone because if your old one took 6 hours to fully charge its electricity consuming.

That's nice. I really have to get a new unit for my business or else I might be in trouble. If I would be in a hurry, I may not charged the battery in full. Thank's for the response!

Hi! I don't usually wait for the battery to be completely drained before charging. When the low battery indicator has sounded at least 3 times I charge right away. A maximum of 2-3 hours charging will have the battery fully charged. Thanks for the post. Have a great day. Keep posting!

I have a sony mobile and it takes less than an hour. Your mobile will take longer to charge if thge charger has a low power and also if your battery is not in good shape. What phone do you have?

That's great! Well that cellphone that I mentioned above is Nokia. It was a second hand unit the time that I bought the cellphone. But now that I have purchased a brand new unit. It only takes less than an hour to have a fully charged battery.

Mine takes about 2 hours to fully charge but I have 2 batteries so i always keep an extra one with me while the other one is charging in one of my older cell phones

That's a nice idea. I should also have an extra battery for my cellphone. Thank you for your response!

I have a cellphone, a motorola. I don't think that this type of charger would charge more faster, but it's okay for me as I only use my cellphone when really needed. It takes about 2 hours for my cellphone to be fully-charged, but sometimes I tend to forget to remove it from the outlet!:(

Ohh no, don't forget to remove it from the outlet it may cause a short circuit in your electricity. Just a reminder. Thank's for dropping by!

when i first bought my cellphone i need to charge it for about 10 hours for the first time. then whenever it gets drained (i drain it totally out before recharging it) i charge it for about 2-3 hours depending on the battery indicator. but approximately 2 to 3 hours.
