We are always looking for more creative ways to have battery on our phone all the time. Our lifestyle implies how much time we spend on social media, YouTube, and other apps. As those apps demand a lot of our phone batteries, we’ll have to charge them more frequently if there’s an overuse. Does that harm the batteries? Let’s talk about that and more in this article.
Have a look at and reflect on the aspects that you’re likely to be forgetting about.
When should we charge our phone batteries?
Is there a percentage we ought to take note of and charge them immediately when it gets there? Should we let the battery drain completely?
Should we charge our phone overnight until 100 percent?
It’s recommended that people go for partial charging, which means not letting the percentage reach 100 or zero. Letting batteries recharge overnight can be harmful, as the full cycle (from 0 to 100%) isn’t the best practice people can have to maximize their lifespan.
What’s better — Charging the phone more or less frequently?
There are two very different opinions on this subject.
On the one hand, there’s the one telling us the more we charge batteries, the less they will resist over time. However, there is conflicting information regarding the best way to charge batteries for optimal longevity. On the other hand, charging batteries before they fully discharge or unplugging them before they reach full charge has been proposed to decrease battery wear-out.
To be clearer about this one: try not to have less than 20 and more than 90 when it comes to phone battery percentage.
The importance of the charger
You should never use a cheaper charger just because the original one is broken. It’s quite the opposite. Having a charger that is prepared to switch off when a device reaches 100% battery is a must.
Draining apps and lifespan phone battery
It’s a sure thing that we tend to install many apps, and that’s one of the many reasons why we must charge our phones more often. Some apps drain the battery faster than others because they keep active on your phone. You have to make sure of the fact that they have been stopped, and sometimes you must do it manually.
There are more simple things we all should consider changing when we are using our mobile phones which have a big impact on our batteries:
- Screen brightness: Using the dark mode available on many apps is recommended regarding the overuse of the phone batteries, thus enabling us to extend our time using our phone on a single day. Additionally, you have the possibility to activate the automatic brightness to reduce your battery wear. Beware that the automatic mode is sometimes less reliable, so if you have to do it manually, just do it.
- Temperature: The phone batteries won’t last long, unless you protect them from the hottest and coolest temperatures. They don’t expand their lifespan if you let your mobile phone on a chair and charge it with a power bank. Don’t let your phone be exposed to the sun nor extremely cold temperatures.
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth: You mustn’t keep Wi-Fi nor Bluetooth active if you’re not using it. Turn them on when you need them, whereas when you stop using them, don’t forget to deactivate them.
If you take all the above into consideration, you are going to be able to save some time for your mobile phone’s longevity. The aim of talking about these aspects is to help you make your battery last longer and have more knowledge about how to charge a battery.
