Just got a new Li-ion battery by RavPower for my S3, how should I charge it?

My new RavPower Li-ion battery is still in packaging and I'm trying to find out how should I charge it for the first couple of times

Contrary to popular belief, there isn't a need to charge a li-ion battery in any particular way. It's not a bad idea to charge it fully before use, but after that just charge as necessary. It's only older batteries (think 10 or more years ago) that had to be charged in a certain way.

I just got the phone today. Battery looked like it had one yellow ring. So charging it now, will red light change to green when fully charged?

They did not tell me to take the phone home and charge it but I am assuming yellow means warning?

Phone charger/battery problem. Any solutions to fix it?

Hello, I've been charging my phone for a decent time, but when I've checked my phone the battery says there is only 54% left. This battery I'm using is the original S4 battery but it has been dropped in the sea water once.

When a battery reaches full capacity, is it the battery or the charger, that is 'smart' (shuts down, so battery isn't over charged)?

Thank you so much for posting all this information. It is very helpful.I want to get an additional charger, for my Samsung Galaxy Tab4. Some people say that the ability to shut down, to avoid over charging of the battery when full, is a feature of the charger. I've also been told that it has nothing to do with the charger. That it is the battery that controls this. Which is true? Thank you so much! I appreciate getting the correct information.

My phone will not charge, it says the battery is overheating, but it doesn't feel hot?

It may have something to do with dropping it in water by accident this morning. It is an S4 mini and it is otherwise working fine.

Would a bad battery cause the phone not to stay on once booted up even when plugged into other power source?

I bought bypass charger because Verizon said it may be a bad battery but they had no way of testing. The battery place said it was my charging port gone bad. They were closing so no time to check my battery (said it took 30 minutes) but when they but a new battery in the phone it appeared to work at least for the 2 minutes they had it in. I ordered a new battery for 1/4 of what they wanted and I am waiting on that to come tomorrow but why won't my phone work when plugged into the wall if it is just a battery?

Hi, my Galaxy mini stopped working, when I try turning on after fully charged it just vibrates and continues ever 30secs. Do I need a new battery please. I have tried: Waiting for a new battery. I think it was caused by: Old battery
