Charging Cellphone Battery 8 Hours For First Time - The Real Fact

Every time you buy a new cellphone, a question will lurk in your mind.  How long should I charge my cellphone for the first time? I have heard this question over and over. Even local dealers ask you to charge your cellphone for 6 to 8 hours for the first time. I don't know how this thing got stuck in their tongues.

Yes, you have to charge your cellphone battery for 6 to 8 hours for the first time if your cellphone has a Nickel-Cadmium battery. Actually the days of Ni-Cad batteries are long gone. None of the top mobile phone manufacturers use Ni-Cad battery now. All cellphones come with Li-Ion battery, which doesn't require a 6 to 8 hour first time charging. 

If you are charging your mobile for the first time, plug it in and unplug once the indicator shows 'Charge Complete'. That's it. To clear this point I contacted 3 main mobile phone manufactures in the world ( couldn't contact Apple as they require serial numbers and stuffs ). Here is what each one replied.


This is the reply e-mail I received from Sony.

" We would like to inform you that the time taken to charge your new device fully is 3hr 20 min. You don't have to charge it for 8 hours."


This is what I got from Nokia

" Kindly charge the battery until the battery will be fully charged. "


When I contacted Samsung via e-mail. A guy from Samsung called me and told the same. Just charge your phone until it is fully charged.

So the answer is pretty clear. You don't need to charge your cellphone for 6 to 8 hours first time, charge it until it is fully charged.

It was a boon to mobile users when TRAI introduced Do Not Disturb (DND). You can activate DND by calling 1909 (Toll free) from your mobile. You will be given two options to proceed, one is to activate full DND or to use partial DND.

If you opt for Full DND, you won't get any marketing or promotional calls or messages from anyone. If you do get such calls even after activating DND, you can register a complaint with TRAI. The main drawback of Full DND is that you won't get any promotional messages from your mobile operator either. So you will miss out on the latest offers and schemes.

Partial DND is introduced to deal with the above said issue. If you activate Partial DND, you will still be able to receive promotional messages regarding offers from your mobile operator.

How To Get Blogger Blog Post Title Before Blog Name In Google Search

By default, blogger sets your blog name first and then the post title after it in google and other search engine results. The main drawback of this setting is, if your blog has a long name, more than 6 characters, it will eat up most of the space in the search results page. To increase the click through ratio from search results you should have your post title first, followed by the blog name.Readers want to know whether your post is related to what he/she is searching for, they do that by reading the title. Having a long blog name before the post title will hide details (Title) of the post, as google typically allows only around 70 characters in search result titles.

In order to get your blogger post title before your blog name. You can use the code below

1. Go to Blogger Dashboard> Template> Back/Restore ( Back up your blog template for being safe)

2. Go to Template> Edit Html> Expand widget (How To Expand Widget in New Blogger Interface)

3. Search for below code using Ctrl+F in the template


4. Now replace the above code with the below code

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> - Your Blog Name</title>

5. Save the template. (If you have problems saving with firefox, do it with Chrome).

Now your blog post title will appear first and your blog name after that. Confirm this by opening a post in new tab, hover the mouse over the tab bar, it should be in order. You can read my 'Never Revealed Blogger Tips' I learned through my years of experience in blogging.

Best Light Smelling Perfume For Men : Jovan White Musk

First of all, let me tell you that this post is based on my personal opinion. I am not advertising for any brand here. This is from my personal experience of using  Coty Jovan White Musk for Men for the last couple of years. 

If you ask me, which is the best light smelling perfume for men? My answer will be Jovan White Musk all day. It has a very light floral scent that makes you feel fresh all day.

It was one of my friend who recommended Jovan to me. I bought it and tried for myself. I am a kind of person who doesn't like sharp smelling perfumes, they get straight into your nose and is irritating. Jovan White Musk was just the right one for me. 

Jovan White Musk for men Review

The main issue with Jovan White Musk is that the smell doesn't last too long as it is pretty light. So you will have to spray that much more to make up for the loss. Once you get a feel of how much perfume you need to apply to last it for 12 hours, then it should be okay. My girlfriend loves the smell of this perfume. I remember, one day she told me that I smelled nice one evening : ) . It was the proof that its smell do last till evening. You may not be able to smell it, but others can. Jovan White Musk is the best light smelling perfume I have ever come across.

Another issue with Jovan is that, it is hard to see it in local stores in India. Because most men like sharp smelling deodorants in India, shop owners stock those type of perfumes. My tip for you is to look for it online. It costs somewhere around Rs.550 in India. It is not very expensive at all.
