The phone wont turn on without the battery being charged up to a minimum level first, neither will it come on with the battery removed. So your charger needs to give out 5v minimum.

My Blackberry used to. Maybe the one exception to the rule.
Are we talking about solar panels? I have some TI-30 SLR calculators that have a solar panel in them. No batteries for 30 years!:eek:
Or are we talking about using some external source?
By the time we get done with this, I might find out I'm wrong.:oops:
How does a Blackberry run with no battery?

As long as it was plugged into its adapter (USB to mini, like the old camera cable), it would run fine while you popped the battery out. It was the way to swap batteries without rebooting. I believe every phone I've ever had with a removable battery (ie. everything that wasn't an iPhone) would run off it's adapter with the battery removed. Same deal with laptops.

Not wrong, just ignorant! :p
Do you mean Unknowlegeable,Unlearned, lacking practical evidence, surely not arrogance! :D

My old Nokia lumia wouldn't power up without the battery fitted even with the charger in, needless to say its now been replaced with an android phone....

Yes, Dave. Ignorant and arrogant have very different meanings.
"Arrogant" would be me insisting I'm right after I know I'm wrong.

FWIW - My Samsung (old flip phone) will not run without the battery. If you remove the battery while it's on (with a charger) it will promptly say "No Battery" and shut down. If you try to turn it on without a battery it will start the boot process and, within about three seconds, shut itself off with no fanfare whatsoever.
