A Few Tips for Efficient Phone Battery Charging
Is your phone struggling to last more than 6 hours on a single charge? Whether you have a Samsung or iPhone, new batteries aren’t cheap. Moreover, spending $60-$100 on a new battery feels like throwing money away. Consequently, the Ultra Lithium team’s put together some phone battery charging tips. Hopefully, they save you a few bucks down the road.
However, one tip reigns supreme. According to multiple sources, charging your phone overnight is a no-go.
According to reps from Google, Apple, and Samsung, you shouldn’t charge your phone while you sleep. Instead, they recommend charging your phone to 100% and disconnecting. Then, charge it again once it’s in the yellow.
Preserving your Phone’s Lifespan
- Learn how your phone’s battery degrades. All batteries are different. Most last 400 charge cycles. Summarily, one charge cycle is a phone going from 0-100% and back again. Granted, figuring out how your particular battery responds to different charging patterns is tough. Ultimately, you’d need to calculate how many cycles it lasts before death.
- Avoid extreme temperatures. Skiers and snowboarders: note how your phone dies quickly on the mountain. Similarly, roadtrippers in the summer often notice their battery seems to melt.
- Avoid going from 0-100%. As previously stated, phone batteries work much like a car engine. Ultimately, don’t let it completely drain.
- Hangout at 50%. Essentially, modern Li-Ion batteries live in this region. This is where they’re happiest – keep them there.
- Use your phone. Batteries today are designed for phones that are used. As a result, don’t be surprised if that work phone you neglect using needs a new battery within a couple of years.
Lithium-Ion Batteries Power A Clean Energy Future
Essentially, don’t charge your phone all night. Besides, it’s unlikely you’ll experience issues these days. Both private and public sector investment in lithium-ion battery research has skyrocketed. As a result, the tech has improved.
Evidently, for good reason. Li-Ion batteries are essential to clean energy technologies. Most importantly, they power electric vehicles.
Additionally, they power increasingly sophisticated digital hardware. Both professionals and consumers demand more of their phones, laptops, desktops, and tablets.
