How to calibrate Samsung Note 4 Battery after adding Hyperion 9800mAh Extended Battery
2 weeks ago, I bought Samsung note 4 extended battery https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0170BUL82/ref=smi_www_rco2_go_smi_2609328962?_encoding=UTF8&%2AVersion%2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0&ie=UTF8 which is very powerful battery for my note 4, but I kep getting in accurate measures because of the new battery capacity on the my phone, also I kept running on 1% power for at least 7 to 8 hours.
I spent couple of daays trying to figure out what is going on, until I found the science behind it. The trick is that this battery is 3 cells battery and you need to tell the phone the new capacity by calibrating it.
to do that, you need to follow the following steps:
- let the battery drain to 0% and the phone will turn off.
- fully charge the battery to 100%
- once you reach 100% battery capacity, you will still see the charging icon (the thunder) on the top still there, keep the phone in the charger until the thunder icon disappear.
- let the phone drain to 0% and repeat.
by then you will see the the phone understand the new capacity, this is a screenshot of my phone running without power saving mode turning GPS/3G and full brightness after the new capacity is recognized.
