- Try not to charge the battery fully
- Don’t worry if you forgot to remove the charger when it 100%
- Charge the phone in short periods of time than in a single session
Only charge 85% battery in one time
According to Battery University’s new research, it is advised that you should charge your phone at short intervals, kind of like doing sprints if you will. Charge it for 10 or 20%, then stop. Charge it for the same percentage again after some time. Also, it is advisable that you should not fully charge your phone ever, and should charge till it hits 95% to keep your phone running optimally and well. They also said that, the modern lithium-ion batteries that are used today don’t need to be fully charged and also it is not desirable. The website stated, “in fact, it is better not to fully charge because a high voltage stresses the battery.”
Are the guidelines the same if you have an iPhone or an Android device?
The recommendations from Apple are: always have the software updated since it includes advanced energy-saving technologies; avoid extreme ambient temperatures; remove the cover if the phone gets too hot during charging; and, if the mobile is going to be on standby for a long time, it is better to turn it off. If the battery is completely exhausted it could enter a state of total discharge and can be recharged, but if it is fully charged, the battery will lose its capacity and autonomy.
It happens with all the batteries, it is not unique to iPhones: if it is overloaded it can be difficult or even impossible to charge it again, it is complicated because the phone automatically turns off if the level drops below a minimum of volts, but once it does, if it remains unused for a long time it could be unrecoverable.
Whatever mobile you have, good habits can increase its life. If you want to reduce the frequency with which you change your device, stay informed and banish old certainties because in the technological world everything changes at vertigo speed.
Give your phone the juice it needs at shorter durations. Save its life. Be good to your phone!! Happy days!!
