    Battery problem

    Ok, so, a couple of days ago I noticed that the size of my phone battery (LG, if this is important) has increased. Since then, my phone is turning off itself, and I need to charge it more often because the battery becomes empty. Also, it smells like some acid. I'm curious if this has happened to anyone else...

    The battery is done. Get rid of it and get a new one. You dont want any of that acid on you or your phone.


    Take it how you take it, I'm the opposite of vacancy

    Ok, thanks for the information, I'll get rid of it...

    EDIT: I accidentally left it outside on 35 degrees. It exploded. Now, I don't have a phone.

    Buy yourself some high techno shit next, not some LG crap.

    I feel like we start getting into a really dangerous territory when we start trying to write around the idea of what some third-party thought of what our music should be when they can't even comprehend on how to tell us what that thing is, or guide us in a direction that can get us there musically or creatively, or anything. You know, having to have a specific type of song; forcing music to conform to that frame of mind is causing a lot of noise to be in and it's getting away from the song. (...) Let's stop trying to do things that other people want us to do, and let's get back to just being fluid, and writing songs, coming with ideas, and being like, "hey, let's check this out", and grading things, and being honest.

    I wouldn't get LG again if they gave it to me for free...

    Anyway, I'd get Xperia S, my friend has it, and it's really cool...

    Oh my friend also has it. That is a cool phone.

    I have an iPod and I have a similar problem. I have it new and and I don't know if it is normal when the battery is empty after a 3/4 day.

    It really depends on how much use the iPod is getting...

    I use it often, at least 3-4 hours, I think.

    That sounds about standard... Is it one of those touch display ones and is the screen on during the whole time?

    The biggest battery killer for any hand held device is the screen. The longer it is on, the more battery juice gets sucked.

    Exactly. I watched ''Battery usage'' on my new phone, and 73% was ''screen''.

    If you dim your screen or change the setting to make it sleep faster, you will see a dramatic improvement of battery life.

    I did that the second I noticed that, also, by turning off all unnecessary stuff, the battery now goes for 4 or 5 days instead of 2...
