My crappy old #smartphone (that I couldn't find a replacement #battery for) is always plugged in whenever I use it, otherwise it shuts down after a few seconds. The swollen battery has gotten even bigger/worse now. One end is popping out. (I got double-sided tape under it so it stays in place.)
Can't use the phone plugged in without the battery in there, but maybe this is dangerous? 🤔
You mean power banks? That still won't work without the phone's battery. ☹️ Connecting to a power bank is like connecting to a wall outlet, it's not like replacing the phone's battery. I had to stop using the battery. A little more swelling and it might explode. 🤯
@alexcleac You're the second booster I saw that got the reply/mention instead of the original poster/tooter. 😁 I guess I should be careful when replying to a boosted toot.
@evelynyap I think that's the client caused that behavior 🤔
BTW, did you try short-circuiting + to - on contacts? That would work in case that battery does not have controller inside. If it has, I would suggest looking just for the controller and connecting it without a battery.
@alexcleac You mean to just connect the + and -? Didn't work. There's a third pin/contact. 😕
