Bump Charge your Android Phone to Double Battery Life – Official Tip

ANDROID LOGOFor all those who are not really happy with the battery life of the device, can now optimize the device so that one can make the most out of their device. Please note that this tip has come Officially from HTC which we have managed to get it for you. There are some tips by HTC with which they are not just providing you the tips to save on the battery life but also HTC is doing its bit from their end also such as optimizing the internal software so that the battery consumption is least. Please note that following the instructions which we have mentioned will not harm the device in any manner. All the data services like 3G / 4G consumes a lot of battery at the end user level. Additionally, Sprint is working to optimize 4G network settings to improve battery life for customers in 4G markets which will further add up the convenience for the users. Please note that all these tips mentioned below can be applied by all the users of Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG etc.

Steps with which you can Extend the Battery Charge:

  • WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and display brightness all greatly impact battery performance, so lots always important for you to only make use of these services only when you need it the most. Especially when the battery is minimum, you need to turn all these core features so that battery will last more till you find a place to charge up your device.

You can also adopt the bump Charge where in you need to follow the below mentioned steps so as to make the most of your battery charge.

  • Turn your device ON and Charge the device for 8 hours or more,
  • Unplug the device and Turn the phone OFF and charge for 1 hour,
  • Unplug the device Turn ON wait 2 minutes and Turn OFF and charge for another hour Your battery life should almost double, as per the htc executives they have tested themselves and found out the there is a huge improvement in the battery life.

Note : Please note that Official means that a HTC Representative told these steps which are going to double the battery life and this has been tested by many people.

If you follow the above mentioned steps, HTC claims that users have reported a maximum battery life of around 10 hours even in the rigorous usage which includes calling, listening to the music, using data services for most of the time. Please note that this may differ marginally again from user to user.

Do let us know in the comments section just in case if you have faced any issues in the process of following the above mentioned steps as we will try to address the same at the earliest. Just in case if you too have some tips on battery saving then you too can mentioned the same in the comments section below.

  14. Hi, Neela Pradeep
    Thanks for the official tip

  15. This bump battery did not work on Samsung Galaxy S I9000

  16. This morning I’ve finished that operations but no result… The only started sensor during today was GPS (for about 10 minutes) and DATA (almost the same time). At 5,30 P.M. the battery indicator was nearly to 10% and the message on the lockscreen was “Please recharge”. My phone is running a custom ROM (CyanogenMod 7.2 RC1 by vo-1 MIRACLE Edition) and it’s a Samsung Galaxy Ace.

  17. Bas! Let me guess, you tried the procedue one time. On an old battery then concluded it didn’t work, right?

  18. Well, I tried this today. Will wait until later to conclude.

    I would like to offer my suggestion.

    My guess is that, this technique is for ‘reconditioning the battery’. Now have it’s effect you need to recalibrate battery after every hourly pump charge, otherwise the firmware will not allow charging beyond what it thinks to be 100% or full charge. Putting phone off and pump charging means that the firmware is out of picture. So a recalibration teaches the firmware a new high mark of battery capacity.

    I used batterycalibration ( a free app) for this. But you need to be rooted and grant superuser access to this app.

    Hope this works :-)

  19. Bas! Let me guess, you tried the procedue one time. On a old battery then conclude, right?

  20. I’m confused???

    How can I charge the phone, if I have unplugged it – as in Number 2…

    “Unplug the device and Turn the phone OFF and charge for 1 hour”

    …. It’s okay you don’t all need to jump at me… It’s Easter Sunday and I am in a good mood.

    Ive done this process to calibrate smartphone batteries before on 3 seperate HTC Desire HD batteries.

    It worked on 2 but not the 3rd.

  21. It didn’t work for my phone (Samsung Galaxy S, GT i9000).
    I followed all the steps.. Too bad

  22. How long will the positive effects of this process last? How often will the process need to be repeated?

    • Its more like you need to experiment and record the results and share the same with others. This is something new and everyone is still trying it out.

    • This is only a guess but I think if you ran this routine say once a month it would probably help keep the battery at optimal performance. Try it once and if it improves then repeat it. If you don’t seem to get any benefit from the bump charging then don’t bother. Again you can’t hurt anything for trying.

  23. Why do people always ask the same questions over and over again? Yes it will work with any phone, yes it’s safe to try, and yes there’s a chance it will work.

    The key thing to understand is that this does not harm your phone or battery in any way. No tools or hacks required. It’s simply an attempt to condition the battery to last a little longer. I have tried this on many different phones with varying test results using software to monitor changes. So my test result are by numbers and not the placebo effect. Sometimes there’s a reasonable improvement and sometimes marginal.

    Either way it’s safe to try and why not? The worst that can happen is you don’t get any improvement at all. A battery does deteriorate over time regardless, so any attempt to extend or improve it’s longevity is worth a shot.

    Be brave my friends it may be rewarding.

    • This is the Best Comment i have come through in the last 50000 comments i have moderated on this blog. Being the Admin i sometimes get mad reading the comments here because people always expect us to try out everything and then share the experience. Its clearly mentioned that this is more like an experiment which everyone can give a try and see if it works or not, while many have reported that it works for them. Thanks for understanding and replying in a positive manner Dan. :=)

      • You’re welcome. I appreciate the compliment. Please keep your formula because I prefer to have crowd sourced opinions versus single columnist opinions. Most sites seem to have a one sided view. This was my first time on your site and I plan to visit regularly.

  24. I have not tried this trick so far with my Samsung phone. But, yes, I tried a similar trick with my elctric shaver. I found that it lasts for more days, if it is put to charge again after a full charge (flashing LED) followed by a small interval (1/2 hour). Since rechargeable batteries work on same principle, the trick should work for phone batteries also.

  25. will it works for sony xperia mini..?

  26. Will it work for LG Optimus 2X ?

  27. Are you sure this will work? Far as i know, when a Samsung S2 is fully charged, it IS fully charged and can you do nothing about it. ie lets say its fully charged, i unplug the phone, put the phone OFF, and try to charge for one hour…it will say fully “charged please unplug”. My question now is…will it STILL charge, even though its fully charged?

  28. Does this also works on GALAXY Y ?

  29. Longetivity is the one I tried when my Phone is like 20% battery remaining and I dont have a place to charge. there is a “phone only “option which basically turns off everything…really helped me in need

  30. I dont think this is in any ways going to calibrate battery. Any Scientific study behind this or hit and trial. Since no harm hence any body will try this, those who get some extended time may feel good otherwise its a PLACEBO effect. Even when i give simple dw injection in medical wards pts feel good. just like that….

    • Probably you are right but since this suggestion is from a HTC Employee the chances are that it would have been tried and tested by many users and most of them have reported some positive results. Does not cost trying it out right?

    • There is a scientific reason behind this and I am sure it will help others also because it has helped me. My battery life was around 24 hrs. but now it has been upgraded to around 40 hrs. Whatsay! Thanx Neal.

    • To have palcebo effect human involvement is required. But, phones cannot…………….

  31. so have to do all step again and again or just once??

  32. will it work for non HTC phones???

  33. Is this tip working with samsung galaxy s gt-i9000(2.3.6xxjw4)(rooted)
