1 - What mobile phone brands, models and types are compatible with BatMax ?
BatMax
works well with any mobile phone, brand, model, type of battery and cellular network (GSM, CDMA,...) or technology (Analog or digital).
The product has been evaluated and documented by several universities, independent laboratories, technology web sites and professionals.
BatMax has been tested with different mobile phone brands and type of batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Po, Ni-Cd and Ni-Mh.

2 - How do I install BatMax in my mobile phone ?
Turn off the mobile phone.
Open the battery compartment.
Remove the battery.
Just install
BatMax inside the battery compartment, without removing the protective film.
The active side (white with the
BatMax logo) must face the battery, as shown on the installation figure and photo (Installation Page).
If BatMax is reversed, the effect on the battery will not be active.

For greater efficiency, place
BatMax - if possible - between the battery and the handset.
Re-install the battery into the mobile phone, close the battery compartment and turn on the mobile phone.
Several charging-discharging cycles (5-10) are necessary to obtain optimal battery life improvement.

IMPORTANT
Please ensure that the electrical contacts of the battery or the mobile phone are not covered.


3 - What are the BatMax's undesirable effects ?
There is no undesirable effect. BatMax is totally safe for the user, the mobile phone and the battery.
There is no effect on the cellular signal and reception.

4 - What amount of BatMax's surface must be in contact with the battery ?
To obtain a good performance (Battery life and charging speed), BatMax's material must face the battery or be in direct contact with the battery. The more surface is in contact with the battery, the more battery life improvement is possible. Normally, 60 to 80% is a good amount of coverage to obtain an optimal performance.

5 - What happens if I install 2 BatMax to add performance, 1 on each side of the battery or superimposed ?
The battery life is increased but by a very small factor. You just need one
BatMax to have an efficient battery life improvement and good results.

6 - Why don't the battery manufacturers include BatMax's technology in their products ?
Because, at the moment, the integration process and material costs can adversely affect the consumer price, but discussions with mobile phone, computer and battery manufacturers are in process. Actually, several manufacturers and cellular operators are planning to distribute BatMax as a branded accessory.

7 - BatMax is not adapted to my mobile phone battery size, what can I do ?
BatMax
size can be reduced (with scissors) to adapt the size to the available surface, if necessary.
But keep the maximum surface covered (60-80%) to have maximum battery life improvement.

8 - Can I use BatMax with a fresh new battery ?
Yes, the battery will be able to maintain its full capacity and battery life for a longer time. The ideal case is to use BatMax with a 3-6 month old (or older) battery. In this situation, you will notice a more visible battery life improvement.

9 - Is BatMax able to fix or repair defective or dead batteries ?
No, the battery’s internal chemical process cannot be re-activated. Never use or install
BatMax with a defective battery.
Very old batteries can be slightly re-activated using
BatMax, but it is rare.

10 - Could I remove and reinstall BatMax from one device to another ?
No. If BatMax is removed, the ceramic material can crack or the adhesive material can be damaged.
It is better to purchase a new sticker and re-install it.

11 - How could I test BatMax's performances myself ?
Proceed to a complete charge of your mobile phone (without BatMax).
Install BatMax on your mobile phone as described on the installation page.
Check the voltage and discharge time before installation (or see how much time - battery level). Record the results.
Measure complete discharging time at full charging condition (Discharge with a 3.8V, 0.5A bulb) or leave the mobile phone on.
Measure time (Continuous call is better to accelerate the test) until the mobile phone is out of power.
Repeat the test and measure the battery discharging time over 7 days.
If you have 2 identical batteries and mobile phones. Perform the test with the 2 batteries (w/ and w/o BatMax installed).
Measure each battery over 7 days and compare the results with and without BatMax installed.

12 - What is BatMax's life span ?
BatMax
is a semi-permanent and semi-active device. BatMax material react to battery use, mobile phone operations and emitted heat. Normally, BatMax is fully operational during a period between 14 to 18 months (250-350 cycles). BatMax lifetime can be reduced by several factors (number of charging-discharging cycles, re-installation, battery heat, etc...).
A new
BatMax sticker must be installed on any new device and cannot be re-installed from a previous one.

13 - Is there a difference between BatMax battery life improvement with different batteries and devices ?
Depending on brands, models, technology and age, batteries are different. They use different chemical materials, electrical characteristics and technologies, there are differences in capacity and lifetime between batteries.
Batteries are also different depending on their status (total amount of charge-discharge cycles), production time, age, etc...
Devices are different between brands, models, dates of production, etc... They use different technologies and request different amounts of power to work. For a mobile phone, the cellular network is also variable depending on geographic location, and how well the mobile phone is transmitting power. External temperature is also another factor. If the temperature is low, the battery life will be reduced.

14 - BatMax generates negative ions, what does that mean ?
Air purifiers are are commonly known as negative ions (- ion) producer and are dispersed into the air throughout a room, where they interact with airborne pollutants. Negative ions then bring particles out of the air you breathe, while disinfecting some of the airborne micro-organisms in the environment. High DC voltage (over 1,000 V), especially when connected to pointed metal edges or needles, will produce ions of the same polarity as the voltage source. This is the basis of home ionizers.
In nature, negative ions are generated by processes such as sunlight, lightening, waves from the ocean, cosmic rays (high-energy protons) and from waterfalls. In fact, negative ions usually come from natural earth radioactivity and evaporating water. Lightning, thunderstorms, and forest fires can contribute "+" and "-" ions, but these ions are not produced under everyday conditions. Normal fair-weather ion concentrations are 200 to 800 negative and 250 to 1,500 positive ions per cubic centimeter. Indoor levels are usually lower. Several hours before a storm, positive ion concentration will increase dramatically, sometimes exceeding 5,000 ions per cm3. During a storm, negative ions increase to several thousand while + ions decrease, often to below 500.

In the center of an atom is the nucleus. The nucleus contains protons (+) and neutrons and is surrounded by electrons (-). Atoms usually have the same number of electrons as protons. These electrons are, however, constantly spinning around the atom and swapping places with the electrons of surrounding atoms. Atoms that have gained electrons from other atoms (negatively charged) form Negative Ions and those that have lost electrons form Positive Ions.

The generation of negative ions is commonly divided into the following 3 types:
1- Lenard (1915) effect, Lenard found that when water is atomized (e.g. on impact of a water droplet), negative and positive charges are separated. When hitting rocks, water is broken into small particles, carrying a negative charge into the atmosphere. This is why there are many negative ions near waterfalls, water fountains, etc...
2- Electrically-generated negative ions: Lightning, corona discharge, ionizers or air purifiers, etc.
3- Mineral ores that are abundant in thermal regions and sources. Negative ions are generated when small amounts of radiation reacts with water particles in the atmosphere.

In the battery's electric process, negative ions are ions that carry a negative electrical charge. Negative ions get their negative charge by gaining electrons (negatively charged particles) in a chemical reaction. Negative ions are also called anions.

In a battery, the negative ions are found at the negative pole of the battery, also called an anode. Electrons are transferred through the electrolyte inside the battery by the positive ions, which take them from the anode to the cathode (or positive pole).

As described on the Technology/Overview page, BatMax generates negative ions because of the nanoceramic material itself and by the fact that BatMax is attached (or close) to the rechargeable battery and react from its contact.


15 - BatMax can cancel my device warranty ?
No, BatMax is a passive product (without any electric or electronic parts), simply installed inside the device under the battery and can be removed anytime without any problem. BatMax does not interact with the device functions and electronic components. There is no device modification.

16 - Why shouldn’t I just buy a cheap replacement battery instead of BatMax?
BatMax should be seen as an addition not a replacement to a battery as it maintains and extends battery life for new and old batteries. It is preferable to get extended use out of the original manufacturer’s battery rather than replace it with a cheaper non-branded battery or a reconditioned one.
