Does it makes any difference if I'm alternating two batteries on my phone? (two samsung original GT-9100 batteries, one two months old and another brand new. In a laptop, if I'm not wrong, there's a chip inside the battery to measure its stats, I don''t think that my phone battery something like that, does it have? If the batteries are both of the same capacity and relatively new I don't need to calibrate with both batteries, right?

Help! Phone will not charge or turn on!!!
Hi. I have an HTC Sensation. I used this program to calibrate after I got to 100% charge. I then unplugged the phone then ran the power out over the next several hours. Around 0% the phone died. Now when I hook it to a charger I get nothing... no lights, no charging, nothing. I've tried different chargers... nothing there either. If I take out the battery, then put it back in, then I get an orange LED light for about 5 seconds, then nothing....

Please help. Thanks

This is not a good sign. I've seen another similar thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4#post15985764 in which a guy with a galaxy s2 is having the same problem. Run out of battery and then the phone is dead. I don't think this is related to the calibration app. I would try to do two more things before going to a service centre:

- Try charging the battery with a battery charger, without the phone, or alternatively try another battery which has charge. This because It is possible that either your phone is not charging your battery for some reason, or your battery has died, not your phone.

- Try to put the phone in download mode with a USB jig. If it works, it means your phone is not dead.

Good luck

thanks for the app, it makes things much easier.

i'm just wondering if it will help with this problem: when my phone charges, the green led comes on at 90%, then the number jumps straight to 100%. i've calibrated once with the hope that it would fix this, but it didn't change anything.

i've attaached a pic of the battery graph. it's a bit hard to see, but the graph starts to flatten out as it approaches 90, then it's a straight line up to 100

any ideas?

Do you have perma root and CMW? IT will not charge your battery when your phone is off.s

What minimum mv values can I expect on a Desire S battery (standard - BA S530 - 1450 mAh - 3.7V) when I discharge down to 0%?

I have tried to calibrate several times and at 0% the mv value differs from anything between 3450 mv to 3680 mv?

Additionally, is the mv value of any importance in the regard of calibrating/optimizing the battery?

Thx

Hey

Do I have to reboot the phone after running calibration? Also there are a lot complicated guides on how to calibrate (e.g. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...18&postcount=3 // http://theultralinx.com/2011/07/cali...s-battery.html). Are they really neccessary or is it enough to follow the instructions in your app?
Also when draining the battery until the phone shuts down (after deleting stats), should it be used normal or can I just run some applications to use up battery fast?

Thanks!

No, it shouldn't be necessary with a reboot since only the stat.file is erased and os creates a fresh within a short time.
Regarding the method of draining the battery... I have no evidence to back this up but I believe that I see a overall better battery performance if I choose to drain with normal use instead of pushing it.
Regarding the other guides I am blank...

I've never seen anything like this before. Sorry but I don't know, what the problem could be.

No worries, thanks for the response. My battery is lasting long enough anyway at the moment so I guess I just won't worry about it.
