What is the difference between an OEM cell phone battery and DuracellDirect's cell phone batteries?
DuracellDirect provides customers with only the highest quality replacement Kyocera cell phone batteries. Aftermarket
products tend to have a better build, giving them more durability, than their OEM counterparts. For example, our
aftermarket Kyocera cell phone batteries will meet, if not exceed, OEM specifications. Our products have also passed
numerous safety tests, and come with a one year warranty.
What different types of Kyocera cell phone batteries are there?
There are four different types of cells that can be used when making cell phone batteries: Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer),
NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride), Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), and Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium). Each type of battery chemical
composition has distinct advantages over the other types, such as a better capacity for extended life span, faster
charge time, or power per cell; these differences are minimal though. All types are widely accepted for creating
exemplary cell phone batteries.
Why do Kyocera cell phone batteries have different capacities?
A cell phone battery’s capacity is measured in milliamperes-hour, or “mAh”. The capacity of our replacement Kyocera
cell phone batteries can vary based on a number of conditions: the type of cell used, the voltage/wattage, the number
of cells, and even the size of the battery or cell. Larger batteries of the same type tend to have larger cells, due
to the cells containing more electrolyte and electrode material; this generally means a larger capacity as well.
How long will my Kyocera cellular phone battery last?
Your Kyocera cellular phone battery should last up to 500 discharge / charge cycles, or up to three years of use. Each
full charge will last for several hours, and charging can take up to three hours, depending on various factors such as
the initial capacity when charging begins. Roughly 80% capacity can be reached by your replacement Kyocera cellular
phone battery when charging.
Certain conditions will affect these averages, such as the condition of the cellular phone battery, how much daily use
it gets, and whether it has been properly treated and cared for.
How safe are Kyocera cell phone batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my Kyocera battery?
We at DuracellDirect want to ensure customers get the safest battery possible; that is why we test each of our products
first and attain safety certifications for them, including CE, RoHS, UL and FCC.
Even the safest and most tested battery can be destroyed, which is why certain measures should be taken to keep your
battery safe. First off, do not attempt to take your cell phone battery apart: this, along with physical injury due to
dropping your battery, can cause it to malfunction. Also avoid having your cell phone battery come into contact with
water such as rain, or other liquids: the liquids can slowly seep into the battery and destroy it from within. Certain
weather conditions like too much heat or freezing temperatures can also affect your battery. Do not leave your cell
phone in your car throughout the day. Lastly, you can keep yourself safe by watching out for leaks from the battery;
a leak will mean it is truly defective, and must be disposed of immediately. When disposing of a cell phone battery,
it is best to recycle it at your nearest battery recycling center.
