Abstract

The paper assesses the reliability of a Sagem-922 mobile phone charger in Nigeria. The Part Stress method was used to assess the reliability of the system. Data on the failure rate of the various components used in the system were used, with special consideration given to factors such as environment of uses, quality of power supply and service personnel. A comparative assessment was made on the reliability of the charger when operated within the Nigerian environment and when operated within the environment for which it was designed (China). The result shows that lower reliability level is associated with the use of the Sagem-922 chargers in Nigeria, as compared with the reliability level when in use in the country for which it was designed.
