You clamp the battery and connect the wires to the metal spot of the battery then plug. A full charge can last me 3 days

Hey does anybody else who owns this phone have a problem about charging? My experience is that if I use my phone's charger it will charge a couple of minutes then it stop charging even though it is not full. I just kept the charger in the box now and bought an extra battery and a universal battery charger made from China. Anybody has another solution for the charging port problem?

Best firmware for samsung INNOV8 at least for me is I8510XXIA1, with this firmware battery holds approximately 4-5 days with one charge.
Hope that helps ...
May be in different country, the usage of the battery is depend on the telco service and it different radio frequency used. So in different country your INNOV8 will have different performance and battery life compare to others.
I had so many apps installed on my INNOV8.
My firmware was I8510DJHI1, and it provide better performance than "XXIB2" firmware that 1 of my friend used on his phone. My phone never hang :)
And my INNOV8 can last at least 3 to 4 days :D
For me I personally like the phone automatically lock when I slide down rather than I ask every time when slide down like Nokia S40 device. Due to my working environment I like this kind of phone locking style.
If you really want to update the firmware please give "ZXIE1" a try. It won't disappoint you. Bear in mind that every firmware has it own flaw and benefit. Nothing is perfect. It depend on your personal interest.
The latest firmware "XXIJ1" seem perform slower.
Thank you very much.
What firmware is the best for battery life?mine(16gb) just stay at 18hour full charge with low brightness,Wifi' bluetooth' gps' autorotate' are off,but great speaker,the sound is really really natural, sorry my english,
is the camera so good (beather then nokia n95 8gb) ?????? i have n95 8gb ,a want to bue samsuni8510 only fot the camera..
The optical mouse BEATS a TOUCHSCREEN - hands down!!
THIS is THE most sensible phone on the market! Its been two years and nobody can beat it!
WHY get a touchscreen, which are so annoying to text on, when you can just get a mouse instead and still keep the keypad? :-) For me, it is the perfect solution!
The camera takes amazing photos, day or night. The on-board editing function meant that I could edit all my Paris photos and with a couple of clicks upload them all to Facebook! The same for my videos as well!
I refused an upgrade from my phone company because I am so happy with this phone! My friend was able to negotiate a better deal for me instead, saving me hundreds of pounds.a year
It even takes SLOW MOTION video! My friend and I filmed a slow-motion, Baywatch scene, running on the beach on our holiday, and this phone made it happen! :-)
The battery life is brilliant! :)
My ONLY criticism of this phone is that the sound when recording in windy or noisy conditions is VERY poor, and nowhere near the quality on even a cheap Nokia phone. HOWEVER I think this may just be a fault with my handset which I didnt get fixed as the warranty ran out.
Well done to Samsung! For the next phone: let's see better sound quality, a Yenon flash and an applications store! Do that and for me, you'll be king!

Hi for those who really want to update their INNOV8 firmware, please get my advice : "Don't fix it, if it doesn't broken"
Do not update your firmware if it working properly on your phone. The INNOV8 default firmware should work flawlessly. And regarding the battery life is depend on whether you are running any GPS / WiFi application on the background or not. For normal app running at the background it won't consume so much battery life. So feel free to use it and enjoy your app.
Usually INNOV8 with it default firmware will last at least 2 to 3 days for extensive use. If you just put your INNOV8 after full charge and leave it just receive only a few sms and call, then it will last at lease 4 to 5 days or more. (I tried before it will last for at least 6 days just for standby time.)
Just to mention INNOV8 has a 2.8" screen size and it will happen the same battery problem like Windows Mobile phone as well.
Keep in mind that firmware update can only upgrade and cannot downgrade. Don't care about what other people said and just trust yourselves.
Thank you and sorry for my non-sense.

hope this review bout this two great phone will solve the problem..
