    Has anyone ever tried using energy to charge a battery, be it a lithium battery or an internal battery? About a year ago I successfully recharged a cellphone, but it damaged the battery so it couldn't hold a charge.

    You need to understand how battery functions/works first before you try to do stuff to it with energy. When a battery is drained, for you to reuse it or charge it you basically need to place the electrons back into the negative terminal from a positive one which is generally neutral from all electrons circulating the circuit and attaching to positive one. The more electrons flow through battery and circuit their potential energy is lost in a way of light, heat or any other processes where ever it was used. Batteries have their own "Volts", which means how much potential difference they produce. Think of a battery as a pressure pump. Charged or fresh battery has for example some voltage, that's the potential energy of electrons at - terminal. The more they move when atached to circuit their potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, and each electrons is bonded to a + portion of battery, that portion is neutral. Neutralmeans no more potential. When charging a bettry you put electrons back into their position so they gain potentional energy again. Glad to clear things up to ya and your energy could have done that or just a coincidence.

    About 15%. At least that's what the phone displayed. If the battery was damaged, it could have had trouble accurately reading it.

    Thanks for the in depth explanation. I hadnt researched much before attempting it (this was years ago) and just kinda tried pumping electrons into the battery. I was just wondering if someone else had tried anything similar.

    Don't charge the battery while it's still inside a device, you will fry the circuit and goodbye to the phone. If you need any further info and expl. Pm me.

    If your place has power cell phone chargers should work easy.
