The battery icon (
) will flash to let you know that the
battery is charging. When the icon stops flashing, the battery is fully

To charge your batteries, use only an approved AC adapter, desktop

(For more information on these accessories, see the product user
guide for each.)

Thanks to your phone’s special design, you can recharge the battery
using only the AC adapter. Simply attach one end of the AC adapter to
the connector at the bottom of your phone and plug the other end
into a standard wall outlet. If your battery’s charge is completely run
down, it’ll take approximately three hours to fully recharge. It isn’t
necessary to let the battery completely run down before recharging it.
