Ways to keep the smartphone battery good
Electricity is the main driving force behind our daily electronic devices. Although large appliances such as refrigerators, TVs, computers, etc. connect directly from the house line, relatively small and portable devices usually use rechargeable batteries. In this regard, lithium ion cells are the most popular.
All time companion mobile phones also usually have lithium ion technology batteries. They can get up to several days of standby time on a single charge. But as the battery ages, so does its usability. Besides, battery backup is damaged even if not properly recharge-discharge.
Many people fully recharge their mobile batteries every day and then drain them completely. But a new study says otherwise.
According to a report published in the Daily Mail, according to experts, it is not right to charge the smartphone battery up to 100%! Rather, it is advised to always keep its charge above 40-50%. That is, keeping your phone's battery charged between 40-80 percent at all times will be optimal for its performance. It even recommends avoiding wireless charging.
Another common idea among us is that after buying a new phone, it should be charged for 8 hours (72 hours in some places). Researcher Eric Leimer calls it a mistake or superstition! Because this method is not applicable for currently used lithium ion batteries. Nickel batteries that were available back in the day required a long continuous charge the first time.
15 degrees Celsius is the ideal temperature for mobile batteries. More than that will cause it to lose performance. A lithium-ion battery stored at 25 degrees Celsius will lose 20% of its capacity every year, Mr Laimer said. And at a maximum temperature of 40-50 degrees Celsius, the battery will be safe from immediate damage (such as explosion).
It is possible to get more backup if you take a little care while using the smartphone every day. For example, if unnecessary features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, synchronize, touchscreen vibration, etc. are not enabled, the battery charge will be less.
It is also wise to leave the phone in offline/flight/airplane mode (i.e. off the network from the set) without turning off the phone when going to an area with no network for a short period of time. Because, setting off-on each time also consumes quite a bit of charge, than when the phone is offline, the charge is less.
Set how long the screen backlight stays on as per your need. Excessively high brightness also consumes a lot of charge. You can also get more battery backup by turning on the built-in power saving option of the handset.
Keep the set locked after using the phone. No option can be turned on unexpectedly. Use the set regularly. Keep its software updated and fully charge and fully discharge it at least once a month.
