brittany2840: Does it make a difference on time if you plug it in a laptop?
Kedar Kale: Thanks brother it Worked for My Samsung S2+... Saved my time n money thanks a lot !!! :) :) :) God Bless !
Hispaniclifevlog: What kind of music do you listen to? :/
DyenieDyenie: this one worked for me. my old iphone 3gs isn't charging anymore. the battery got so drained, it wont charge anymore. i brought it to a technician, he said we need to revive the battery since the battery was changed into a non-Apple product. the repair was more or less $15. good thing i saw this video before spending money on a repair i can do myself at home. thanks to you! you've very helpful Seth. :)
ali nehme: nice
عاصف سالم: Cooll thanks
Luke Smith: Thanks dude!! Did this trick with my brother's zophone i5 from China cause he ran the battery dead, and it worked first time!!!! 20 mins charging and it back to life!! Saved him another £150 to lay out, booooooommmmm!!!
ryolink2000: Thanks man. This trick just saved me 199.99 to buy a replacement cell since I got mine over seas a long time ago.
diyforlife1: Nice job kid...
Joshua Ortega: That is a bulky phone
MrBrzi89: thanks man,you save me....
Macho Quinones: Wtf what type a phone is that lml
deion murray: no
deion murray: did not work
AddColorsToYourLife: no. People used to do this with alkaline batteries thinking that the cold will somehow recharge but it's just a myth. Cooling, NOT FREEZING, in a DRY environment will slow the deterioration of the chemicals to ensure shelf life. To actually recharge requires that electrons be put back in the electrolyte. If anything, the condensation of water from the fridge and the water in the battery would increase internal resistance and kill the batteries potential energy faster. Also, Li + H2O = BOOM
justin bumpus: does the freezer thing really work
jash21222: For a recent high end phone, an OEM replacement battery can cost upwards of $30. USB cables can be bought for a few dollars.
jash21222: I have run into a few cases where a particular ROM won't charge a battery if the battery drains too far. In these cases, you really are effectively reviving the battery as the battery for all intents and purposes the battery is dead to you. Most recent case I came across was a Galaxy S2 battery that would not charge on this Galaxy S2 phone with a custom rom. I put it into my Galaxy Nexus, charged it for five minutes, which brought it back to a state that the S2 could charge it again.
BentWookie89: I owe you a beer. Not only did this work, but it was kind of fun destroying my old webcam.
XxDaafgXx: does it really work o-o
Flea Garcia: Does not work, shame
Tommystate: You're the best. You saved me time and money. Thank you.
Ryan Welsh: omg thank you!!!!
Jesse Powell: i think i will try this with my old phone
estellacanchola: Can u pug it against the wall or it has to be a computer? ?
Jean carlos Alvarado: You wanna know a quick and easier fix throw ur battery into your freezer for about an hour and a half than wipe off the battery with your shirt and put the battery on your phone and it will charge
SFU21: First of all , CPU doesn't interfere , kernel does.
A battery has a price tag of a couple of dollars , it's not a lot more than the USB cable he just destroyed.
Anyway , doesn't change the fact that , this is charging not reviving.
redsnoopy19771: THANK YOU you totally saved my battery! It wouldn't charge past 2% and now its working like new. Saved me money for sure :)
ThePresh001: Nice one there. For useful info on Latest computer technologies, visit UNN's computer-science department's site
UndertheRadarTM: Yes but this is direct charging so the phone's cpu doesn't interfere and stop the charging if that is what is happening. Once you get it back functioning you can do multiple deep cycle charges and recondition he battery and get it back to charging around 80%. Some people do not have the money or are in immediate need of getting they're phone back working.
lestat Chow: That is something, I might want to experiment it.
rdcharm040: OH MY GOSH THANK YOU
theman7699: Because the charger voltage is regulated where usb direct is a higher voltage but not enough to short anything out or burn up anything. every computer usb is made to kick off in event of voltage irregularity so no you wont burn up your computer.
theman7699: This is called zapping a battery and works 100% of the time except in water damage cases.
theman7699: uh hello that is what he did step one to show phone charger was doing nothing
David Bell: oh god, i just sharted, hold me...
Muhammad Humayun: Hello Seth Dillinger, I try this as my mobile 5800 Battery was dead. I try your formula, and it works, Bundle of Thanks,,,
ToKaf9Ehv: mines worked so yeah
Arihant Bhamidipati: U craphole this didn't work at all and I had the same phone!!
Arihant Bhamidipati: I can't find the silver wire
Arihant Bhamidipati: I had the exact same phone!
Sam W: Could this be any more out of focus? Trust you are you kidding? I cannot see what the heck you are doing why should I wreck my computer trying this. Is this what the Ebay sellers do to 'REFURBISH' a cell phone battery? What does 'refurbishing' a cell phone battery entail?
Kiersten Storkersen: or you can plug in your phone with a phone charger
zulyn7: Can this work for any cell phone ?
Ruiting Chen: A bad camera man and a very bad way... THIS will EXPLODE in your face!!!
incum12: works! connect the wires as follows:
start to count from plus-side to minus-side. So the far connector on the plus = 1 and the connector on the far minus = 6
Hook up the red wire to 2 and the black wire to 6. Make SURE that the wires are touching the connectors and press the electrical tape HARD.
Then hook up the USB to your PC and let it sit. I had mine on for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on it while its hooked up (feel if it gets warm or anything to make sure)
laoch33: that WILL burst into flames if you charge it that way - phone chargers have over charge protection, that's why u don't just charge with two wires, that's why all lithium batteries have more than Positive and Ground wires. This is dangerous. Have you ever left something under the grill for too long? well this isn't gonna be burned food, it will be fireball/explosion into fireball + toxic fumes filling whatever room you're in. DON'T GO MAKE A SANDWITCH!
SFU21: You don't have to use a charger , you can just induce current to the battery manually.
Plus a completely discharged Lithium battery with potentially a lot of dead cells will not last long.
So this serves very little purpose.
Even if you induce current , it's gonna be the same.
But if you burn it you're gonna end up with even more dead cells.
Lithium batteries don't like flame or anything hot really...
Dale Smith: Thanks
Vlad Grigore: a Li-po battery has a minimum voltage ... if you don't use it, it will discharge over that voltage, the charger will not recognize the battery. you need a small charge until you rich that value.
