Resurrect Your Cell Phone Battery

Perhaps two months ago, I noticed that my mobile/cell phone was discharging forty or so percent overnight. Then for four consecutive days it discharged completely.

Ten years ago I heard casually that you could revive a failing lithium battery by putting it in the freezer. I am intrigued by such trivia, so I now remembered the fact.

Old and somewhat doddery, I could not find access to the battery, so recharged the phone for twelve hours, then simply put the whole instrument in the freezer and left it there for eighteen or so hours. Next day it was frozen solid, so I let it thaw. Now, a month later, it discharges only 2 - 3 % overnight again, and works perfectly.

I have been persuaded that I should publish the information to benefit others, which I hereby do. Perhaps it can proceed on an indefinite basis, and you will never have to buy another phone or battery, but presumably the manufacturers in the fulness of time will sell phones with a specific life before self-destruct sets in, but we can deal with such problems if or when they crop up.

Please notice that I am not trying to claim priority in this, but am merely confirming that it works, and it should work for you.

Try it with an old battery, or a defunct phone and, so long as you have not been playing footbell with it, pass on your findings. There are a lot of mobiles in the world. Buying a new phone or even just a battery unnecessarily is an unnecessary luxury in these times of global warming and hurricanes, isn't it
