    i read about this method.. it's call the Ghetto method and not recommend because the battery can blow up.. hence the 30 min limit
    the person was using a ac charger with strip wires.. not from a usb wire plug in to a usb plug

Leave for a few hours and you should be good to go.
    Only way I was able to charge my phone. Now a I have spare though as I bought an extended battery so I have my other as spare.
    Trying it now. Actually looking more positive than anything else I have tried thus far today. Actually went into fastboot for a second and for the first time it says Battery Ok. So, I'll leave it like this for a while and get back with everyone later to let you know my status

    Thank you EVERYONE.

    What ever my advice is, you follow it at your own risk.

    I keep that in mind. Personally, I would have never done it with an ac charger wire that just seems unsafe. I figure a USB charge carries far less voltage.

    Take a USB cable and strip the end that you plug into your phone and take the battery out of your bionic and place the red wire on + and the black wire on the - side. I have done this 3-4 times before when I tried to fxz with a low battery.
    I have read if you do this you can actually put the battery back in with the wires attached it will charge the battery with protection from destroying it.

    That seems like a highly unnecessary risk. I mean, blowing up a battery is one thing. Blowing it up while it's in the Bionic is something else entirely.

    no risk no reward. I wouldn't try it myself I am smart enough to have 3 batteries, so i wouldn't be tempted to try it.

    i guess it's all right if he is doing it for all of us.. we really appreciate the sacrifice.. lol but be careful.. it's cheaper
    to wast your time to let the battery charge then buying a new phone and having a personal injury

    Yea, I bought the external charger with extra battery day 1. I have a corp discount and they were having a launch day sale so I got them both for a ridiculous price. Haven't regretted it since. The ability to charge a battery and the phone at the same time is worth its weight in gold.
