You get this number on any battery by this formula: Wh = Voltage x Amperehours. 1320mAh is the same as 1.32Ah, so you get 3.7v x 1.32Ah = 4.884Wh (~ 4.9Wh).
You know, mAh is not a good meassure of capacity since it only takes the current into acount, while Watt is the power. A battery of 1 volt and 4000mAH is only 4Wh.
Charging time depends on the chargers voltage (or current). My HTC Desire Z is a bit slow in charging when connected to PC USB port or a Nokia USB charger, and charges faster on the HTC charger. According to HTC this is because the provided charger has higher voltage than a PC USB port. I dont know if a C3 would charge faster on a HTC charger, it depends on some circuits inside the cellfone itself.
Its an amazing fone with a v reasonable price tag.
usng it since last 3 months,absouletly problem free,wifi works great,and the best thng is battery lasts fr 4 days standby with normal use .great fone
c3 is a great phone i own one and presented it to my girlfriend. drawbacks r it doesnt have a flash light n the handsfree is really bad n no data cable is provided.wifi is the best feature in this phone. u can browse fast.i agree with ppl who told that it requires charging for abt 3 to 4 hours.
heyyyyyy evry1 on dis website just wandering is dis phone worth d money 2 keep it 4 a few years?? nd do u need 2 put a memo card into it?????
Mystery of 5 hours of charging solved. Nokia intentionally did that. Because it helps in keeping the production cost and selling price low.
Look at the battery of C3. Just below the NOKIA logo u can see, BL-5J 1320 mAh 3.7V 4.9Wh. The last thing 4.9Wh represent the charging time. Its highest for any latest NOKIA handset. Only C7 have that thing on 4.4Wh. Normally its around 3.7 for upto 1000 mAh batteries. So 4.9Wh for a 1320 battery is sure going to cost 5 hours of charging time.
hi can speak to anyone by using skype or fring to my frnd from C3 thro wi-fi? plz its urgent...THANX
why my c3 powder key stop working after bought Dec2 2010. stop working 16 Jan 2011
Try mobile9.com and umnet.com for free C3 Stuff like software, videos, wallpapers, ringtones, etc.
C3 is a Gr8 phone. Used 4 a month. No problem at all. Using 4 GB Memory card. WiFi is really cool. I am downloading about 4 GB of data daily in just 1 hour while sitting in d park. U just need 2 know where is d open WiFi connection.
Some people finding 3 hours charging time irritating. But its a 1320 MAh battery.
Anyway some tips:
Dont keep any data in phone memory. This will keep d C3 away frm software problems. Dont let WLAN scanning open all the time. Scan 4 WLAN when u r actually going 2 use it. WiFi literally drinks battery.
this phone has major drawback about his battery life itcould n't stand upto the 3 days nd it requires more then 4 hours of charging that is the main drawback of it
