Ok well as the topic subject states, I had an LG vx9900 cell phone, and with that cell phone the charge would die within 30mins of leaving idle or 15
in use, give or take. Well today it completely died, would not charge on the house charger nor the car charger. So I had another cell laying around,
which was a Motorola. I took at peek at the back of the cells battery and both put out 3.7v/ Lithium-ion powered. The batteries are totally different,
but they had + - sides labeled on the four prongs so I held the Motorola battery with my hand in place to complete the connection to the lg phone, and
as doing so the phone powered up......and then went to a screen that said replace with a genuine battery! Well I hit a key and something popped up but
I didn’t/wasn’t able to read it quickly enough. well the phone shuts down. I did this several times, but never was able to recreate that different
message. So I guess somehow the phone is able to recognize it own kind of power source, as if the battery itself holds some kind of signature. if all
the phone needs is a 3.7v source of juice to power it up, why would it deny the 3.7v from Motorola?
edit: it powers down in 10 seconds with a count down.
