What is the difference between an OEM cell phone battery and DuracellDirect's cell phone batteries?
DuracellDirect aims to provide customers with replacement HTC cell phone batteries that will either meet or exceed OEM
manufacturer specifications. This doesn’t mean just the life span of the battery: most of our aftermarket cell phone
batteries will tend to have better quality cells, which gives us an advantage in terms of durability and safety. All
of our cell phone products will come with a one year warranty, and also attain various safety certifications, including
CE, RoHS, FCC, and UL.
What different types of HTC cell phone batteries are there?
The cell phone batteries in today’s market contain cells made using certain chemical compositions. However, each cell
will only be made from one chemical type. These battery chemistry compositions include NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride),
Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer), and Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium). Each battery chemistry type has certain
advantages over the others, such as a better total life span or faster charging time; however, all types are widely
accepted for creating high quality cell phone batteries.
Why do HTC cell phone batteries have different capacities?
Our replacement HTC cell phone batteries may have different capacities for many reasons. The capacity is measured in
milliamperes-hour, or “mAh”. The overall size of the battery, the size of each cell, the voltage and wattage, and the
chemistry type are just a few of these reasons. Normally, larger cells will have a larger capacity, due to containing
more electrode and electrolyte material. When comparing cell phone batteries of the same type but differing sizes,
the larger-sized battery will likely have a higher capacity.
How long will my HTC cellular phone battery last?
On average, our aftermarket HTC cellular phone batteries will last through several hours of usage. When charging, up
to 80% capacity can be reached in just one hour, but the charge-time can take roughly three hours, depending on the
condition of the battery and the initial capacity upon charging. Our HTC cellular phone batteries are expected to last
through 500 discharge / charge cycles, or up to three years of use.
These averages can vary per customer and battery. How you take care of your cellular phone battery will affect its
life span and daily usage.
How safe are these HTC cell phone batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my HTC battery?
As mentioned earlier, each DuracellDirect product (from our aftermarket HTC cell phone batteries to replacement cell
phone chargers) will attain various electronic safety certifications before being sold to our customers. These
electronic battery safety certifications include FCC, CE, RoHS, and UL.
As rare as it may be, even the safest batteries can sometimes have a chance for defection. It is up to the owner to
care for their HTC cell phone battery, which is sometimes as simple as avoiding extreme conditions. For example, cell
phone batteries should not be exposed to extreme freezing temperatures or heat. Be wary when leaving your battery in
your car throughout the day. Do not let your cell phone battery come into contact with water such as rain, or any
other liquid as it can seep into the cell phone battery and damage the internal cells. Do not attempt to take apart
the battery, as this can cause it to malfunction. Avoid high impact environments that can cause physical damage from
dropping or throwing the battery. If you notice the battery leaking, dispose of it immediately and do not attempt to
