I recently bought a new cell phone. Nothing was really wrong with my old one which I only bought just three months back. I just needed an upgrade and since there was no objections from wifey, I decided to get a newer model of my current HTC and gave my old one to wifey.
The poor girl gets cell phone hand me downs ... LOL! Not that she minds (at least I don't think she minds) cos she's not one of those people who likes fancy schmancy phones and all that. She's quite content to keep her old one as long as it works.
Every time I tell her to buy a new fancy one with all the bells and whistles, her reply is,
'As long as I can make a call and text from it, I don't need a new one'
So since I bought a new one last Saturday, I gave her my three month old phone which already had a host of fancy applications to it that even gave me headaches to use. She told me to sell it online at first but after some persuasion I managed to convince her to give it a try cos I'd rather she have it than selling it for below market value.
She was a bit daunted by the amount of functions on that phone at first but I think she's secretly liking it since it keeps her connected to her online stuff easily (admit it honey, you like the phone, don't ya ... LOL!).
Anyways, that really isn't what this post is all about. I actually wanted to ask a question which kinda stupefies me. No, it's not about the best multivitamins also. I'm just hoping one of you will give me a satisfactory answer to this mind boggling question.
Whenever you buy a new cell phone, the sales person will ask you to charge the battery for at least 8 hours. In this day and age, with the advancement of battery technology, is that something that must still be done or is it an urban legend.
I mean I can understand if our batteries were the old Ni-cads but not with the lithium ion ones that we use now. Besides, my HTC charger shuts the charging process down after it reaches its full capacity which is around 3-4 hours so how in heavens name do I keep it charging for 8 hours and most importantly, WHY?
When you ask the sales guy why do you need to charge it for 8 hours that can NEVER give you the reason. Most of the time they will just tell you that it must be charged for 8 hours but no explanations would be given.
So, someone please satisfy this curiosity of mine which has been giving me sleepless nights tossing and turning like a fish being fried! I would be greatly in your debt.
