This means that your battery bulb on your device has been broken. This is the equivalent to your headlight being broken for it will show right rather than the color which is projected through its casing. Check the indicator to see if the phone was damaged around the lighting area at this time to ensure that all you will need to do is fix the outside casing.

Charging Battery Not Using Micro USB Port?

My Micro USB Port has gone bad... I'm currently charging it directly at the battery with a modified USB cord... How do I know when it is done charging? My battery level says 100% but when I remove the stripped wires of the USB cord from the battery and reboot... It is considerably less... Any Thoughts?

This is incredibly unsafe -- not only for you, but also your battery. Your phone's battery is not designed to take a charge from any other source than the device's charging port. You will need to get your micro USB port fixed to properly charge your device.

USB tethering is overcharging battery till its swollen and ready to explode- help?

Not an S4. I have a Samsung Exhibit T599 with lithium ion and I use it to tether internet to my PC and it's plugged in A lot. I didn't think it was supposed to charge in the config but it did and swelled the battery to almost 3 times the thickness but they're not supposed to overcharge "they" say. Is that true? Is this an equipment flaw? I've also read that there's no apps that can shut off charging even on a rooted phone so what are my solutions, aside from not tethering via USB? I'm not comfortable tethering via wireless.

If your battery is fully discharged (0%), what damage does that do to it? Is it "dead"?

Have a Galaxy S4 - charging connection appears to be damaged so that it is hard to charge or if it charges, a warning notice saying that the charger is not the original charger (false) and that any charging will be less than full effectiveness. I have tried: Wiggling the charger connector. Blowing the connector dry with air.. I think it was caused by: No idea. Intermittently charges fine and then has periods where it's a nightmare to charge
