    Hi,

    Sometimes when the T610 is charging, I get an "Optimised Charging"
    message. In what way is the charging being optimised?

    It recognises the battery as an original ericsson battery, and therefore, it
    can increase the charging current, thus reducing the charging time.
    Non-original batteries are regarded "alien" batteries, and according to
    Ericsson, the charging current is lowered in order to avoid battery
    explosions. IMHO it is a way for SE to force people to buy original
    batteries.

    Re: Optimised Charging

    Does it matter that much these days, i didn't think there would be such a
    market for batteries anymore - after all a typical phone battery will
    probably last a couple of days with even a heavy user, and I cant remember
    the last time i had a battery significantly degrade itself.


    An old T39 my wife uses which is over 3 yrs old now still works perfectly
    from a battery point of view (and in every other way) - needing charging a
    couple of times a week only, on its super tiny original battery.

    Maybe that's why they gave us a freebie 3rd party battery when we
    bought the T68i. There's just no market any more.

    I was only trying to explain what "Optimised charging" meant. I don't want
    to start a debate about whether original batteries are better than
    non-original or not, even though it is my opinion that they are, based upon
    my own experiences of non-original batteries.
    I have had my T39m for almost two years, still running on its original
    BUS-11 battery, and even though it's not bad, I have a "gut feeling" that I
    have to recharge more often nowadays than before. It's something like two
    times per week instead of once. On the other hand, I may have developed a
    new usage pattern, by using more GPRS and WAP services now than previously,
    for example, and forgetting to turn it off over night.

    Maybe Nokia will end up implementing this based on stories such as.....

    And if you buy a Nokia 3330 these days the battery conks out barely giving
    out 1 day of life within a year of purchase. Nokia is the biggest pile of
    crap on earth and if their batteries and quality of phones stays like it is
    I probably will never buy another...

    As a former Ericsson employee, I should hate Nokia, but I got a freebie
    for my wife when signing up with AT&T and it is a wonderful little basic
    phone for her. She gets 8-9 days of standby time. I am however still
    an Ericsson / Sony Ericsson man (Or Ericssony, as we used to joke in
    the office )
