Default Questions on battery charging - Galaxy 551

Hi all,

1) Anyone know how long would it take for the battery to be fully charged ?

2) Is there a way to check the percentage of the battery status? The status on mine showed "charged" (from charging) but the battery icon on the top is only half-filled (with a + sign) with blue color so I wonder how full the battery is after it is charged??

Since it is the first time I charge the battery, should I leave it to be charged for overnight??

3) How long would the battery last?

1.)Depends on what you are charging with ? Charger or PC

2.)There are battery apps,widgets available .BUT I have customized my ROM (Gloat,Gloat) which shows percentage directly .

NO,dont ever leave it charged overnight.First discharge the battery completely then charge it

3.)3/4 hours if you use full power ,8 hours for heavy normal ,16 hours for normal,36 for light ,48 is super minimal.

My phone status changed from "charging" to "charged" in about 2.5 hours (using the charger). But as I said the battery icon on the top is only half-filled with blue color. Then I left it charged for another hour or so and then the battery icon is fully-filled. I guess that must indicate that the battery is fully charged so I disconnected it from the charger. So total took about 3.5 hours.
