Someone please help me get around this.
I bought a Yiboyuan brand Universal Battery Charger With USB Output and two Acesoft brand batteries on ebay. I bought it because the Wall charger charges one battery and is supposed to charge the other battery simultaneously while it is in the phone.
The Samsung Droid Charge will not allow charging a generic battery in the phone. When it is turned on with the USB cable attached it says - "Unable to charge non-supported battery. See users manual" . When turned on without the charger, a fully wall-charged generic battery just says "Non-supported battery, see Users Manual.
The wall charger DC output to the battery installed in it is 4.2V ~ 350mA ~ +/- 50mA while the USB DC output is 5.2V ~800mA.
The batteries are Acesoft EB504465VU Li-Ion 3.7V / (5.5Wh) / 1500mAh.
The Samsung Droid Charge AC-to-USB Charger's DC output is 5V / 1.0A. ( same msg about 'unable to charge unsupported battery...')
The original Samsung Droid Charge battery is an EB504465IZ Li-Ion 3.7V / 5.92Wh / (1600mAh).
Once charged in the wall charger, these generic batteries work and display the correct % of charge in SETTINGS - ABOUT PHONE - STATUS - BATTERY LEVEL %. Also on the Home screen the Battery Icon / Bar Graph indicator works and shows the correct charge level, but when the charger is connected, it alternates between that and flashing a Red outline of the battery, indicating a non-OEM battery is installed.
Yes the I could just charge these batteries in the wall charger while the USB cable charges the genuine Samsung battery inside the phone, but I want these generic batteries to charge inside the phone and stay charged while driving so I won't have to pull over to swap batteries when I have one of these installed.
I read that there was a way to get around this with old Droid's. There must be a work-around with the Samsung Droid Charge also. Anybody know? Thank you for solutions that will keep this thread short for others.
