View Full Version : the recharging battery

Not that this is a problem, but the other day I noticed that my battery only had two bars left. 15 mins later I looked down and had three bars left. A self- recharging batttery?!? Doubtful, but still is nice to imagine that i would never have to plug it in. Any one have similar instances?

i've seen that happen before too. now if you want something to be worried about you should see this phone a woman brought in to where i work. it was a basic LG flip phone and i swear it must've had a gremlin in it. you could turn it on and it would be unplugged and have the "phone charging" screen on like it was plugged in. it would also make calls all by itself. unbelievable as it sounds we actually saw it happen in the store lol. now if your bb does that then i'd worry, but a battery meter going up occasionally isn't a big deal.

A little off the subject, but I had a flip phone once that made calls on its own when I had an aftermarket headset plugged into it. It would dial the last number of the person who called me. It was perfect for me as I love to call people and pay for it all day!!

The reason that the battery meter goes down that back up again. When there is a large amount of straight usage the battery heats up, but as the battery cools down you will get a bar back.
