    What is the normal temperature range for the DTEK60 battery when charging and in normal usage?

    Right now I am charging and the battery temperature is 40.0°C (104.0°F), voltage 4,345 mV, and charge current 2,331 mA. The ambient temperature in the house is 22.0 C. When I got home my battery was at 28% and now it is at 80% after 38 minutes of charging.

    The glass front of the smartphone feels warm (around the upper middle of the screen) but not hot and the back feels normal or slightly warm at most. I have the BlackBerry Smart Flip Case on it.

    temperature is 40.0°C
    Normal when charging a Li ion battery. No worries. You can get lots of info at Basic to Advanced Battery Information from Battery University

    Thanks! I should have thought of looking it up on Battery University. I read an article from there about battery life (durability) related to depth of discharge, which is why I generally do not go below 50% on the battery but today I did not have my charger and spare battery packs with me.

    Right now my battery temperature is 28.7°C and I finished charging 22 minutes ago. Quick charge is awesome. 28% to 100% in 62 minutes (80% to 100% in 24 minutes).

    More than anything I am just curious to understand how and why things work the way they do. Side effect of being a nerd.
