Default Which charger is better?



Well I have this two charger,idk which one is better for my battery,since I have 3 battery I take turn to charge them with the left charger the one that u can buy in ebay,ok back to the real question,when I charge my phone with the right charger (original) it take 2 hour to fully charge stock battery but not the china battery ,it take 5 hour to fully charge this China battery with original charger,if i use the ebay charger (wall charger) it charge all types of battery within 5 hour? Why is it so? Any idea?

Probably the China charger identifies itself as an USB port, so that it can charge any type of battery with a lower amount of current. Shouldn't damage the battery if you charge it with the HTC one though.

But about the amount of charge that store in the battery by using the China charger,will it like lack charge of a few hundred mah of the battery since its not genuine charger? I talking abt the battery charger that u put ur battery on that port and charge not the USB

The China charger will take to long to charge any battery above 1200mha . Since most of thoes chargers only charge at a crappy 500ma-700ma to get a good charge you need minimum of 800ma and 1000ma=1amp to get a good charge and still be able to use the phone while charging to reduce charger heat up. As for the wall battery only charger mimicking "USB" I'd does no such thing it just gives straight voltage to the battery and meters it till it reaches Max voltage and to avoid over charging the input amperage to the battery is like 200-500ma .. hopefully this helps you guys out on choosing a charger. Fyi all HTC official USB wall chargers are rated at 1amp

„Better” in this case means that it will charge faster. Think of it this way - you want to fill a glass with water. If you pour it from a bottle with a large opening, it will fill faster. If you pour it from a bottle with a smaller opening, it will fill slower.

Which bottle is better/worse? Depends on how fast you want to charge your battery.

Since I got 4 battery(don't ask me y,2 of them were China battery it die off pretty fast,1 stock and yoobao)..I have no choice but to use the China charger,but China charger are much slower..but will it fill up the full capacity of the battery?

I see no reason why it should not. It's not like it suddenly stops at a certain percentage or something. Just be sure to not let it too much in case the charger doesn't have overcharging protection (a.k.a. it knows when the battery is full so it doesn't overcharge it)
