One of the biggest problems of our loyal smartphones. It’s battery time! Despite the new fast charging technologies, the absence of removable batteries means that the lithium cell inside our mobile phone will eventually deteriorate.Something that is too evident on any mobile phone after the 12-month mark.
There comes a time when you get the feeling that the battery does not last as long as it used to … Even worse after two years, when most handsets will not be able to handle a full day without being connected to the charger.
Unfortunately, battery capacity decreases over time! However, there are some things you can do to extend the battery life and consequently of your mobile phone.
One of the myths about not disappearing is that occasionally you need to completely discharge the battery from your smartphone, then completely charge it, thus ‘erasing’ the battery’s memory.
Well, this could not be more wrong! It’s a very old myth that has passed from mouth to mouth for years! Because, in fact it is something you should avoid at all cost.
Partial charges do not cause any disturbance in lithium batteries, and may even have many benefits for their longevity.
When near 0%, these batteries consume a constant current, operating at a lower voltage. As the phone charges, the voltage starts to rise until it stabilizes at around 70%.
In parallel, running at low voltages is great for the battery, increasing the number of charge cycles available before you begin to notice a decrease in capacity.
Each 0.1-drop in voltage doubles the life cycle, according to the ‘Battery University’ website . In short, charging your phone between 30-80% keeps the voltage low and increases battery life.
Letting the phone charge at night is a very common habit! In fact, I do this every day. However it is not recommended for several reasons, and no.It is not by the ‘myth’ of battery overload.
In a perfect world, a mobile phone should stop charging when it reaches 100%, only coming back eventually to charge back to 100%. However, some tests show that there are mobile phones that even when 100% charge continues to draw current from the transformer.So the best thing to do is to take the phone off the charge after full charging.
This kind of use like, play some game, or watch a video while charging the mobile phone is bad for the battery! Because it distorts the charging cycle, it can induce mini-cycles.
The best thing to do is to turn off the phone while charging! But as this can be quite difficult, decreasing the work load while charging the device is not bad at all.

Temperature is one of the biggest contributors to the longevity of a battery! Like high voltages, high temperatures also cause stress on the battery, causing the loss of capacity faster than normal.A battery that stays between 25 and 30 degrees should retain about 80% of its capacity after the first year.
As you may know, fast charging technologies cause the batteries to heat up quickly.These charging methods have never been thought of for full cycles! Only for small 10/15 min cycles to give a good boost on the battery.
So be careful if you want to completely charge your phone, devices like the Galaxy series from Samsung allow you to turn off quick charging in the battery settings.
