Battery

HTC Vivid uses a rechargeable battery. How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Vivid. The features and accessories you use can affect battery life. For example, leaving your Bluetooth® connection always on uses more power. Long phone calls and frequent web browsing use up a lot of battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength from your mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.

Removing the battery film

Before using HTC Vivid for the first time, you need to remove the thin film that's underneath the battery.
  1. Take the back cover off.
  2. Pull the flap of the thin film out, and then remove it from the battery compartment.

Inserting the battery

Important: Please use only original batteries that came in the box or replacements that we recommend.

  2. Insert the battery (with its exposed copper contacts first) into the battery compartment.

Charging the battery

Before you turn on and start using HTC Vivid, it is recommended that you charge the battery.
Important:
  • The battery is already installed in HTC Vivid when shipped. A thin film is inserted between the battery and the compartment. You need to remove this film before you can charge the battery.
  • Only the power adapter and USB cable provided in the box must be used to charge the battery.
  • Do not remove the battery from HTC Vivid while you are charging it using the power or car adapter.
  1. Insert the small end of the USB cable into the USB connector.
  2. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the power adapter.
  3. Plug in the power adapter to an electrical outlet to start charging the battery.
Note: As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging if it overheats.
