these are quite famous used in Asia so you dont need specific chargers for old battery phones at a time where all manufacturers made their own charger.

in fact i have one at home and would like to test for you as long you can give me clear instructions which ones are the pins to charge the battery with.

cause i remember the middle ones you mentioned are +/+ in polarity that means it cant be charge putting them in the middle right.

Basically the battery inside had three plates, i need to know which one are minus and plus and then know which one outside are running parallel to it.

I think the other two remaining are for data purposes.

I think we may have been at cross-purposes, but not to worry, we can still help.

I was looking to make an alternate charger while the battery was inside the TS - I think you are wanting to charge the battery outside?

The device you posted - it looks like it has 4 pins as outputs, and the levers used to set a voltage to each one - yes?

What is the distance between each pin - does it look as though the TS (not the battery) could sit on top and all the connections meet?


Anyway, to answer your question, Ive attached a couple of picture of the battery only - it shows the max charging voltage, in case yours doesnt.
I used a meter to test the voltage of the battery - as far as I can tell, the middle pin is not used, so you may be able to get away with just applying a voltage to the other two. It may be the middle one is used as a control - to send a stop charging message for example.

I have now got the SUUNTO clip working with just 0V and +5V to the outside pins - its all about lining them up properly!

yes the battery can be charged already with the universal charger faith the pins but it's a hassle to unscrew the backplate all the time.

It only has two pins with bended pins but hard to reach the four designated pins from outside

What is the distance between each pin - does it look as though the TS (not the battery) could sit on top and all the connections meet?

Pins are bendable in Some way...these chargers are 1-2 pounds region on eBay

My question is more could you figure out with pins can be used to charge OUTSIDE with the universal charger? I didn't get a green light with the pins which I did had using the battery putting those pins in the outer two plates (from the pic battery) I would have thought those 4 dots outside two of them are the same as the two outer ones I from battery

Replied within I your text inside sorry not very clear

From My earlier Post:

With the clam shell opened to the left, so the 4 contact pins are on the right, the voltages (top to bottom) are: GND, +2.00V, +2.57V, +5V. [This is plugged into a wall plug charger, not PC)

Hopefully from this you can orient your TS and the charger so that only the two outside pins are connected with the correct polarity.

Tried... no "green" light for good polarity If I try to reverse the watch I can't
Reach the terminals without modding it...😓

could you mod the charger instead, so its connections are reversed?

I don't mind sending you the charger so you can figure it out as I don't have loads of time
As long you send it back to me PM me you address we take it from there

im thinking by the time we've both paid for postage, could turn out to be exoensive.
If all you want is another charger: https://www.smartwatchmarket.eu/en/a...truesmart.html
