is there a way to charge a cell phone battery without the cell phone. If so, how? Answered

The reason i ask this question is because my cell phone stopped charging my battery. it's not the charger or the battery...it where u plug the charger into the cell phone that is not making contact.   I know that regular batteries (AAA, AA) can be charged universally as long as the battery is a rechargeable one.  How about a cell phone battery?

With what it would take to create a cradle to hold the removed battery and the time to remove it each recharge cycle, you would have better luck fixing the charger port or plug.

Have you tested the charger's wire to make sure that the wire isn't broken inside the insulation?  That's a very common problem that's fairly easy (if messy) to fix.

Cell phone batteries are lithium batteries.  They have to have the correct chargers and be charged under very controlled conditions.  If they are not charged properly they can catch fire pretty spectacularly.

So I would say that it is a no on that.
