i read here that its hardware is similar to sgs4 http://www.jollausers.com/2013/10/talktime/ so i thought maybe the battery is the same, but i saw on mugen power that it's only almost the same, it has almost the same shape, but the jolla battery has 3 instead of 4 pins...

The battery has exactly the same width and height as SGS3 but is slightly thinner, and has 3 contacts (I guess the fourth contact on the SGS3 is for NFC), which are closer to the edge on the Jolla than on the SGS3.

In the meantime the life of Lithium batteries is greatly extended by not letting then deeply discharge or get overly warm or cold.

Even in storage out of a device the internal safety circuit draws current to monitor the battery voltage which causes self discharge and if the voltage drops below the safe point then for safety the battery is terminated and cannot be recharged. So just don't leave them lying around or in devices, which nowadays do not seem to have a physical on/off switch so always draw current, and recharge them at least two or three times a year if they are not in a daily use cycle.

That Jolla has a user replaceable battery is a brilliant Unique Selling Point and a great feature for those who like to visit remote places.

Also remove the battery and neither the MNO or state security will know where you are until you repower your phone

Actually L-ion batteries should be charged at least every 3 months, I have an LED torch that the instructions say to charge whenever not in use.

Setting a 3 month reminder in the Calendar for recharging Lithium batteries would be good. Max life is obtained if residual discharge capacity does not go below 75 to 80%.

Hi,

I damaged my battery. I was just to supid to put the battery in a right way into the phone. The strip of plastic where the contacts are broke.

I tried to get a spare battery via Jolla Support.

They replied that It is not possible to buy one. I have to
send the phone now to Jolla via a "out of warranty repair" to get
a new battery

hope they will change this policy soon.

That's ridiculous I can't understand why they don't offer spare batteries. Sending the whole device in because of a broken battery is miserably wrong

Especially for a phone which is advertised as having a user-replacable battery.
