1. Press the clip and place your battery in the charger with bronze contacts facing up without plugging into power outlet yet. 2. Align metal contact pins to the metal contacts on battery. If the battery has two contacts, just match each pin to a contact. If the battery has three pins, connect the pins with the two outside contacts. Some batteries has four contacts, then it become a little tricky - connect the pins to the first and third metal contacts from the left. 3. If the two pins are properly connected to the right contacts, the small indicator light will glow in red, it is not bright but noticeable. Sometimes, you will have to do some trial and error to find out the right contacts for the two pins until the red indicator is on. 4. Now plug power in, and you should see red and blue lights alternatively flashing, means charging. 5. It takes about three to five hours to fully charge a battery.

Line up the pins, put the battery in until the light lights up, let go of the clamp, plug it in. Simple.
One light will light up at first, to show it has a good electrical contact with the correct battery connections. Then when you plug it in, another light will flash while its charging. When charging is complete, the flashing light goes out and the 3rd light comes on solid. So when its done, there should be the 2 outside lights on solid, and the middle one is off.
I've charged 2 different types of cell phone batteries with this; a total of 4 batteries. 1 battery was from a Samsung Convoy 2 1300 mAh 3.7 vdc. The other was from an LG Cosmo II. It charged a dead one up overnight.
I just plug it in, and by morning the battery is charged.
Excellent for having charged, extra batteries around just in case.
It doesn't matter what polarity you put it in, as the thing detects the polarity.
The only thing I've had to do is bend the pins back forward and I probably had pushed them back when putting batteries in it.
Now on batteries, there are usually more than 2 contacts to connect to it. However most battery manufacturers mark on the casing which ones are the ones you need to charge it with. They are marked + and -. I put this for the electronically challenged.
All in all a very good product.
However, I got these for my dad and, well, lets just say I think something like this is for the younger croud. I ended up simply buying him a used broken same-model phone to use for recharging, and it is so much simpler to deal with.
I think I was buying these things for about $6 or $7 at the time. Great value in that price range.
I purchased the Universal Mobile Battery Charger(much cheaper than a new cell phone) and my problems were solved. It does a fantastic job of recharging my cell phone battery. It is very easy to use and I think that it actually works better for recharging the battery than the cell phone. Actually, I find it very convenient for keeping a spare battery on charge so that I always have a fully charged battery ready for use in my cell phone. I highly recommend this product.
Well, it eventually dawned on me that the charge port on my phone could be the problem, so I took it to sprint and they confirmed that it was, indeed, the charge port. They tried to sell me a battery charger for 35 bucks...no way!
I decided to check here at amazon and found exactly what I needed...for under 5 bucks, yes!!!!
I have to say that when it arrived, I was so excited, i tore open the package looking for instructions...but there weren't any! I tried to figure out how to use it from the little info in the box, but that was poorly worded and hard to understand, so I turned to youtube and found out how to use it.
I'm really pleased with this product (now that I know what to do) and with an extra battery, Ik! always charged and ready to go! I have my phone back, and couldn't be happier!!!
Thanks Amazon and HDE !!!
UPDATE: After using this product for about a month, it stopped working. By then, my new cell phone had arrived, so I went without for a few days. It was inexpensive and did work, but it is not a long-term solution.
