What to watch out for when buying a cell
- As cell phones have grown in popularity,
counterfeiters have jumped at the opportunity to make money.
Currently, counterfeit batteries are fairly prevalent in the market.
Buying a counterfeit battery is not only a waste of money, but can
Counterfeit batteries are not manufactured or tested to the same
standards as the name brand batteries. As a result, there have
been more than one instance where a counterfeit battery has
overheated and burned through the phone destroying the phone and
causing injury to the phone user. Phone manufacturers will not
honor a handset warranty if damage has occurred from a poor quality
battery. At Discountcell, we guarantee all of our items are
authentic as we only buy from US distributors.
What are some signs a battery is not authentic?
Price is an easy warning sign. If a company
is selling a battery too cheap, it is almost always a sign the item
is not authentic. There are exceptions such as when a
particular battery is on clearance or sale. Don't put your
expensive cell phone at risk by using a cheap imitation battery.
Location of the company selling the battery.
In the last year or so a number of companies out of Hong Kong have
started offering product on the internet shipped direct from China.
This can often be determined by looking at the companies return
policy and address. In every one of these types of companies
we have looked into, the items are not authentic.
Warranty and return policy. Anytime a company
requires you to return a OEM cell phone battery to them versus the
manufacturer a red flag should go up. This is almost always a
good indication the cell phone battery is not authentic.
Poor Quality aftermarket batteries. While these are not
counterfeit, a poorly manufactured aftermarket battery can damage a
handset as well. Cell phone manufacturers will not replace a
handset under warranty that has been damaged by an aftermarket
battery. If the aftermarket battery manufacturer does not
guarantee their battery with a handset replacement policy in the
event the battery damages your phone, it is unwise to use their
product. All of our aftermarket batteries come with a
guarantee the cell phone battery will not damage your phone.
In the event the battery was defective and that defect resulted in
damage to your handset, our battery manufacturers will replace the
No one wants to be stuck with a dead battery on their
phone. While a dead phone can be used as a paper weight or maybe a
hard flying object, it is not of any use as a phone. A new or
spare cell phone battery can be one way to keep your phone powered up
and ready to go.
So what kind of battery should you purchase? A number of
considerations should go into the type of cell phone battery that will
best suit your needs as well as some strong cautions regarding some
batteries currently on the market.
What types of cell phone batteries are there?
- Slim Cell Phone Batteries - Slim
batteries are thinner than the standard battery supplied with the
phone but provide less talk and standby time. Some phones
require a new battery door for use with the slim battery.
- Standard Cell Phone Batteries -
Standard batteries are generally included with the phone when
purchased. These batteries provide a good balance between size
and talk/standby time.
- Extended Cell Phone Batteries -
Extended batteries provide the greatest amount of talk and standby
time but are thicker than the standard battery. These
batteries may require an extended battery door.
- NiCD - Nickel Cadmium batteries
were common during the 80's and 90's. These cell phone
batteries are heavy and have a memory effect. These batteries
require a full discharge (often referred to as conditioning) before
being charged or they will lose capacity.
- NiMH - Nickel Metal Hydride cell
phone batteries replaced NiCD batteries in the late 90's and are
still used in a small number of phones. NiMH batteries do not
have the memory effect and are smaller and lighter than NiCD
- Li-Ion - Lithium Ion cell phone
batteries are the most common battery on the market today.
These cell phone batteries are small and light and not affected by
charging memory. As a result they can be charged without being
fully dish-charged or conditioned. At times, new li-ion
batteries will require multiple charging cycles to activate all
cells and provide the advertised talk and standby time.
- Li-Poly - Lithium Poly batteries
are the latest technology. These cell phone batteries provide
the most talk and standby time using the smallest and lightest
battery cells. While these batteries are available for a
limited number of cell phones, they have not yet gained popularity
among most cell phone manufacturers. These batteries are not
subject to a memory affect and so can be charged without the need
What do terms like talk and standby time mean
- mAH - This term refers to
the capacity of the cells within the battery. The higher the
mAH the more talk and standby time the battery will provide.
- Talk Time - This is the amount
of phone call time the cell phone battery should provide. This
time may be affected by the signal strength and type. If a
phone is in analog mode, the talk time is greatly reduced.
Talk time is generally rated in hours.
- Standby Time - Standby time is
the amount of powered on time the cell phone battery will provide.
Standby time is reduced by using the phone whether talking, surfing
the web, playing games, checking messages, texting, calendaring or
other activities. Most current phones have standby times rated
