Smartphone has been a “must have” device for us nowadays and we can’t even think a day without our smartphone while we often forget the efficient ways to use the phone so that the battery can last maximum and no heating effect on over usage.
Here we have prepared a list of “must know” points to keep your Android smartphone battery working at optimum level.
Android Smartphone charging tips
After analyzing the Android system, we figured out some points which are proven experimentally. Some of these are really shocking and may make the myths down!
Don’t charge battery from zero to 100%
The best way to save phone battery is not to keep the phone under 50% battery levels. If the battery juice level drops down under 50% try to get some charges but remember one thing- don’t charge the battery to 100% because it may be fatal for the Li-On battery. Constantly charging the phone all the way to 100% every time will make the life span of the battery shorter. It’s not mandatory to charge whenever the battery level comes down to the half battery level. Try to use the phone with a battery level in between 40% to 50%. But don’t let the battery percentage come down to 20%.
Should do a full battery charge
We recommend charging your phone to 100% (full charge) once in a week, it calibrates the power of the battery, and it applies to laptops also! You might have the reverse idea, isn’t it? If you are going out for a day then only charge the phone fully. Otherwise, there is no need.
Do I need to charge my phone overnight?
No, we recommend charging the phone while you are awake. Overcharging may lead overheating which causes battery damage in maximum times. So, stop charging when you are going to sleep.
Do I use fast battery chargers?
Modern phones have fast charging features, using which you can change your phone up to 50% in just 15 minutes but remember one thing fast charging means charger sends power at a higher voltage which ultimately causes wear and tear of the battery capacity at the end. Though in the phones like Samsung’s S series, Motorola Droid Turbo, HTC’s high-end phones use this ultra fast charging technology, for your information here we have information- there is special chipset in the processors of these phones which send charging request at a higher pace that means higher voltage.
Don’t leave you phone under the sun
For the same reason we recommend not to leave the phone under the sun, it will make the phone hot and ultimately makes the phone battery down day by day. Not only sun but also keep the phone out of the heat.
Can I use any third party charger?
We recommend using the branded charger for the specific mobile only. If you are using a third party charger, then make sure that that charger is approved by the company that has manufactured your phone. Some cheap chargers cause overheating and catching fire also!
