The mobile phones of today come with battery juice that is much more than ever before. However, thanks to equally vibrant usage of data, media and games apps for entertainment, users never seem to be happy with their battery lasting power. There is no option but to charge the battery so as to ensure you are not left high and dry. Power banks do come to the rescue many a time, but it is always advisable to meet the day’s challenges with a fully charged mobile phone, isn’t it?
The most common habit is to charge the phone overnight so that you do not have to bother recharging your device till at least the whole of the day or till tea time. It is also convenient, the phone gets charged while you recharge your batteries with a good night of sleep.
But hang on!! Are you sure this is the right way? Well, apparently not. Keep in mind the following tips when you charge your phone the next time.
- A full night charging of your mobile is not good for its health. Instead, you would be better off charging your device by 10 -20% each time. These short term bursts of charging will be healthy for your device. Partial charging of your phone has been recommended at all times.
- Do not let the device run out of charge fully before you start charging it. The deep-discharge practice where the phone literally has just sufficient gasping power is very bad for the battery and will shorten its life. The tip is to avoid waiting for the “red warning” sign to come on and charge much before that happens.
- The optimum of battery power has been found to be between the 65% to 75% levels. This is the optimum point of battery power maintenance.
- Do not charge the battery to the full. 100% charging level is not recommended at all. The lithium-ion batteries of today do not require this full blast of power as higher voltage causes stress within the battery.
- If you do at times charge your phone to 100%, do not panic if you have not removed the charger from the charging point. It would have automatically stopped charging once the 100% level was reached.
