How long should a new battery be charged before using?
I just got a new battery from ifixit and i wanted to know how long should i charge the new battery the first time.
Charge till 100% full, however long it takes. Let it trickle after that for say 30 minutes (means leave it connected to charger after it reaches 100%).
From there use it in one go without charging until almost 0%.
Then charge it in one go without interruption till 100% full. You can let it trickle a little bit.
The above is called calibration.
If you decide to leave your phone turned off and unused for a long period of time, do it when the battery is at 50% capacity.
Always use a genuine wall charger, and a genuine or certified cable.
Heat will damage your battery.
Extreme cold will diminish its capacity temporarily, until the temperature rises again.
So there are conflicting instructions on iFixit when you follow the instructions such as the ones from iFixit Battery Calibration
How to calibrate your battery
For phones and tablets:
1:Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours.
2:Use your device until it shuts off due to low battery.
3:Charge it uninterrupted to 100%.
When you receive the kit you get a card it says battery calibration with the I'll fix it logo on it it says (For Optimal Performance, calibrate your newly installed battery. Drain battery below 10% then charge uninterrupted to 100%.) And that is all
So it's a little conflicting I'm going with the one from the wiki.
The funny thing for me is it's been at 1% for 5 hours this is a Samsung S7 Edge does anybody know if this is normal? However, it did say the battery was too low to use flash when I took that picture maybe it's getting closer to shutting off.
I just want to say iFixit is really cool I couldn't believe what I paid for my kit $32 came with everything to replace the battery. The instructions were straightforward and clear to understand to tear it apart however, they should have an up-to-date adhesive strip tutorial because that got a little confusing for me even with doing some Googling but I did manage to figure it out. Perhaps on your tutorials iFixit after congratulations you've installed your battery now let's put the phone back together in this second tutorial just a thought. :-)
I broke my screen and digitizer on a iphone 6 plus and the battery was going dead.
I bought a new screen & digitizer and battery on ebay for $45 and DIY. Looks and works GREAT!
How if I doesn’t wait till 0% I already charge, is will damage the battery?
“There’s a reason Apple no longer recommends calibrating the battery in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. It’s bad for battery health. They’re even introducing a new feature to keep your battery from charging to 100% when you don’t need it to.”
I have a IPHONE 8 Plus and I purchased a new battery a couple of days ago and it seems to still take a long time to charge?

I just got my phone battery replaced as my previous battery had bulged out, my new batter seems to take a long time to charge, is it normal for a new battery to take longer to charge as it's new?
PS: THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE PUT THE PHONE TO CHARGE AFTER REPLACING THE BATTERY AND ITS TAKING A LONG TIME.
