HTC Desire – Battery Recalibration

leave a comment »

Whether you have bought a new HTC Desire, or have just done an upgrade to Froyo (Android 2.2), your phone battery may need recalibrating to ensure you get good use out of it.

After following these instructions, I was able to get at least 3 hours extra time out of my battery, with average use.

The steps below appear convoluted, but follow them slowly – it is really quite simple and will take you about 15 mins or less if your phone is close to a full charge.

1. Connect phone to the charger with the phone powered on and let the phone to charge until the notification LED is green.

2. Disconnect the phone from the charger, and power it off.

3. Reconnect the phone to the charger with the phone powered off, and allow the phone to charge until the notification LED is green.

4. Disconnect the phone from the charger and power it on. Once the phone is powered completely on, power it off again and reconnect it to the charger until the notification LED is green.

5. Disconnect the phone, power it on, and use it.

That’s it! Hope this worked for you.

Cheers,
-T.
