A must know for all!
Isn't it annoying when you have to make an urgent call and your phone just shuts off due to low battery? I bet it's one of the most frustrating things we face on a usual basis but not everything can be blamed on the phone battery. We ourselves happen to make some common mistakes which can be avoided to run out phone's battery a little longer. Do you leave your phone on charge overnight? Are you aware that overcharging your phone can cause damage to it?
If you want your smartphone battery to last a little longer, you need to make a few changes to the way you have been charging your phone. It might take a while to make a habit out of it, but as you begin to follow these daily practices you would see the improvements gradually.
Find out in the below point as to what can be done to minimise our phone's battery loss.
Charging your phone at small intervals may damage the battery life. THAT'S A MYTH! It is said that a phone battery should be not charged directly from 1 to 100 percent, as it might lead the battery to wear out. It is best if you give it small intervals to charge.
Believe me, just DON'T wait till the end!
...the 'lithium-ion' in the battery has its own level of 'stress'. If you increase the 'stress' of your smartphone by overcharging it, the battery life of your phone is ultimately shortened, which takes us to the next step that is very important.
As for humans, stress can be damaging. Similarly, over-stressing your phone by overcharging it, is going to do no good to you. Unplugging the charger is like 'relaxing after an exhausting exercise'. How would it be if you workout non-stop?
According to Battery University, "Li-ion does not need to be fully charged, nor is it desirable to do so. In fact, it is better not to fully charge, because a high voltage stresses the battery and wears it away in the long run".
Your phone battery will stay a little happier if you charge it now and then, instead of charging it when it's empty. According to Battery University, it's best to charge your phone when it loses its 10%, though it's not possible to be conscious all the time, but just plug it whenever required.
This is especially for iPhone. If it heats up, as Apple suggests, remove the case and charge it. If you're charging it in the hot sun, keep the iPhone covered. It'll protect your battery health.
