    Default Lion battery probably dead.

    Lion battery probably dead. I played with the phone till it was out of power. Tried to charge it the next day... boy did i regret that.
    Through usb the phone is not charging. and nothinghappens on ac.. i can only go to restore mode. With normal start the apple logo shows for a few secs, and then it's
    powered of again.

    I wil open up the phone and get the battery out.... does anybody know how to
    get this battery charged again ?
    Should i "shock" it with a bigger voltage ?


    Regards, Martijn

    there are replacement battery's on the market, but since the phone is only a few month old...

    First of all, you're jumping straight to conclusions. Just because it's not powering on doesn't mean it's a hardware problem. First, try restoring. If it still isnt working, then send it in if you're in the US. If not, you'll have to fix it yourself, but the problem may not necessarily be the battery.

    On usb the phone is not responding. nothing works.
    On ac I'm am able to go to the restore mode... but that will no do me no good.

    Today i opened the phone, took the battery out... voltage is 0 ... that is not good...
    Time for a replacement.

    Ordered a new one from http://shop.brando.com.hk/

    For all lithium-based batteries, NEVER EVER OVERVOLT THE BATTERY. None of this "but I only did it for just-a-little-bit" business.

    Doing anything like that is so asking for it to set on fire.

    I really don't think its your battery giving you the problem, if it can go into restore mode then it obviously still has power. But, let us no how it all works out!

    Good Luck!
