How to Revive a Cell Phone Battery

When mobile phone batteries have reached their limit or are left discharged for a long period of time, they eventually lose their ability to hold a charge. If your cell phone battery dies, you don’t need to throw it out right away, why not try reviving it first? Maybe all the battery needs is just a little push to make it functional again. Learn how by proceeding to Step 1.


Method 1--Jump-starting the Battery


1. First, gather your supplies. You’ll need the following:
9-volt battery—Any brand will do.
Electric tape—You’ll need no more than five inches.
Electrical wire—Basic thin electrical wire will do. Red (+) and black (-) are preferred.


2. Connect the electrical wire to the positive and negative terminals of the cell phone battery first, as these are smaller. You can identify the terminals of the battery by simply looking at the side of the battery. It will have a plus (+) and minus (–) sign to mark the terminals. Remember to use two separate wires or split wires for each of the terminals.
Do not connect the positive and negative terminals of either battery with itself.
Most cell phone batteries have more than two terminals, use the ones that are furthest from each other, or the ones on the outside. The center terminals are not to be used.


 3. Cover the connections with electric tape. Take note which wires go to which terminals of the battery, as not to connect a positive side to a negative.

4. Connect the wire coming from the positive terminal of the cell phone battery to the positive terminal of the 9-volt battery.
Do the same with the negative wire.
Do not connect opposite polarity, positive to negative, because this can short out your cell phone battery.


5. Secure the connection of the wires and the terminals of the batteries with electrical tape.
Place them in a cool, dry place, away from any water or heat.



6. Leave the connection for up to a minute or until your cell phone battery gets slightly warm. You should check the battery every 10-seconds or so for heat.



7. Remove the connections once the cell phone battery gets a little warm to touch.


8. Insert the cell phone battery back into your phone and check to see if your phone powers on.


9. Check the battery level once your phone is on. If the level is low, plug the phone into a charger and wait until it is fully charged.

HOW TO FIX A PHONE THAT WON'T CHARGE PROPERLY(2)
A previous article is about the first 6 steps of How to fix a phone that won’t charge properly.
7. Charge from the right source Charging from a wall socket will always be faster than charging via PC or laptop, because computers' USB ports don't deliver very much power. A wall socket can deliver twice as much power as a USB port, and fast chargers it can deliver as much as five times the power – which means much, much faster charging. So if your phone is charging slowly and you're connected to a laptop: there's your problem.

If your wall charger doesn't appear to be delivering the goods, check that it's appropriate for your device. A charger from another phone might not deliver the right amount of juice — for example, a charger for a Bluetooth headset won't put out as much power as one designed specifically for smartphones. In the case of recent high-end phones, you might have a phone that supports fast charg…
Your buying guide for the best power banks in 2017

Your guide to the latest and best power banks of 2017. What is a best power bank? It should have some innovative function and it is just what you need. Phones get faster every year, but the more powerful they become the less their batteries can keep everything going. And, of course, all batteries will degrade over time. If you need extra battery power for your smartphone, tablet or other USB-powered device, you need a power bank. You might assume all power banks are much the same thing, but you would be wrong. You can get compact power banks that will charge your phone once, slightly larger portable chargers that might offer two or three charges, or high-capacity banks that can charge your phone in excess of 10 times! Working out how many times a power bank will charge your phone depends on more than the mAh rating on the packaging. No power bank is 100 percent energy-efficient, with every portable charger losing power through voltage c…
