There are reasons or cause why that's happening to your Samsung Galaxy S4, first is you overcharging it, so when you charge it, check it every hour to see if it is fully charged and it is not good to overcharge your phone because it will overheat. The second cause is if you unplug it when it is not fully charge, when you charge a phone, you must wait and wait till it is full so that it will not weaken the battery of your phone. The third cause is if you charging it everyday, it means you keep on using your phone (non-stop using your phone) that's why you charging it everyday and the result will make your battery weaken or decrease the life of your battery. Since your battery is weak, you must replace your battery with a new one and when you buy a new battery you must not do what you did with your old battery.

I have bought a new battery for my Samsung S4 and am charging it?

It has been charged for an hour, but I can't see the battery charge on the screen and there is no light showing on the phone

It is possible that the new battery is drained. Your phone might detect it as a "dead battery" because it does not have any charge left in it. You might need to "kick start" the charging by using a universal charger, it looks like this:

You can buy it from here:

http://www.ebay.com/bhp/universal-charger

or at your local tech store.

Now, charge your battery for 10-20 minutes. You can choose to fully charge the battery (usually charging is at 1-2 hours, if fully drained or new, it will take you 2-4 hours) or put it back to your S4 to fully charge.

If the phone still would not turn on or charge, it is possible that the battery you bought is dead. Buy a new one or an old working one and check. If the working batteries still do not work, send your phone to a Samsung service center to get it fixed.

Hi, 1st time charging the Galaxy S4?

Hi, hope you are having a nice day. I just bought the Samsung Galaxy S4 and was told to use the phone with the partial charge from the factory and wait to charge until the phone battery goes down. While the using the phone a message came up battery low.(battery was in the yellow). Plug in. Do something with applications in task manager, or continued use will damage something. Do you know how to go into task manager to delete unused running applications? and does it do any damage to charge the phone before getting rid of those running applications? When I plugged in the phone, looked like about 15% left battery (showed green, not yellow). I just want to make sure if I should have let the battery go down more or even to where it powered itself off. I'm just worried about compromising the battery life, where it won't last as long (and not hold charges as long). And when it's charging there is a red LED on the upper left corner on the face of the phone while charging. Will that turn green when fully charged? I don't want to overcharge. And most phones take about an hour and 15 minutes to an hour an a half to fully charge. This phone I saw somewhere that it takes 3-4 hours. Does that seem about right?I thank you so much for your response. Thanks Keith

I have had a problem with my S4 charging slow before and this can be fixed by first completing some steps at home before having to consult a professional to help you to fix your problem. Below are a number of steps that you can take in order to help your situation:

Check your USB chord to see if your cord is malfunctioning

Check your charging base to see if that is the problem

Check your battery to see if that is the problem, this can be done by purchasing a new battery or using another battery to see if it holds a charge

If indeed all of the issues above do not solve your problem you will need to take your device to a service center to have the charging port checked out to see if it is functioning correctly.

Hi Initial charging of battery Samsung Galaxy S4?

Initial charging of battery Samsung Galaxy S4

If the phone is brand new, I'd let it charge until it's full before powering it on. I'm not sure what percentage of power it would have out of the box, but I imagine a full charge would take about 3-4 hours. I would use it until it gets to about 15% and then do another full charge. You would want to do this for the next few cycles to train your battery's usage.

Hello. The question is: How long does it required to charge the battery of Samsung Galaxy S4 for the first time?

How long does it required to charge the battery of Samsung Galaxy S4 for the first time? Should the battery to be drained first then charge it?

There is probably some charge available in the phone the first time you take it out of the box. I would let it sit and charge til it's full before using it. You'll then want to use it for a couple cycles down to about 10%-15% before charging it again each time. This will "teach" the battery on how long it holds a charge before needing to juice up again.
