    Default Mobile Charging Time

    I hear different things from everyone regarding the time to charge your mobile, sometimes i leave my mobile on charge for over night although i think this is excessive but because its overnight i don't get up to turn it off.

    What is the ideal time to charge a mobile, until its just shows that the battery is full or longer than that?

    I don't know the exact time for full charge because it depends upon model to model but it normal full charge must not take more that 2-4 hours max.

    Warning: Never keep your mobile on charging mode for whole night as it weekens the power of your battery which slowely reduces the back up time for your mobile.

    I am not sure about this but I have always believed that when the phone says battery fully charged it actually stops the process and it doesnt matter how long you keep it plugged into the charger for... this is probbably not true for the older phones.

    Ditto.

    I have seen this feature even in rechargeable torches(Britelite).

    Most of the times i charge my phone in office so Battery Full Message works for me, at home i just leave it on charging without thinking about anything. Overnight charging problem is not applicable in my case as i never sleep before 4-5AM

    Today's mobile phones have Li-Ion batteries. The Li-Ion batteries stop charging when they are full. They do not get overcharged.

    Li-Ion batteries also do not like to be discharged fully. So start charging them when the battery indicator shows one bar to three bars (out of 5).

    so you mean to say that if i leave my phone on charge over night, once its charged the charging process for the phone stops, although its connected to the socket?

    Thanks for clearing my misconception. Even I was in impression that charging your mobile phone for longer than required hours, weakens it power.

    Well, SE phones are generally have longer battery lifes than that of Nokia, maybe foe the fact that they use JAVA system in SE and Symbian platform in Nokia. Nokia has the best features but SE is faster i guess in some processes.

    It would depend on phone to phone, some phones take less time to charge and some take more time to charge. I would say on average a good 20 minutes would fully charge a mobile phone.

    Over charging and using adapters other that the ones recommended for your phone can harm your battery life. Charging time depends on your adapter, if you are using the adepter that came with your phone, your phone will be normally charged in 90 minutes.

    The phone will stop charging if it's full so it is not really that harmful. Charging while using though is a different story. It can make your charging port loose or it can get your battery bloated. Using while charging really harms the phone.
