If you have recently purchased a smartphone and want to avoid making mistakes as you did with the previous one, in this article you will find simple tips to improve the battery of your mobile and not risk ruining it in a short time.
In the pre-smartphone era, we used to charge the phone quietly after days. The battery was infinite, it lasted a long time and above all it never dropped suddenly. Definitely what determined the long duration of it was the limited use we made of it: a long call that lasted a maximum of 15 ', a couple of text messages, a ring to your best friend or at most a couple of games to the only one. play on the phone.
With the advent of smartphones, and their very delicate lithium batteries, things have changed a lot. The new arrivals, often not replaceable, need attention to prevent the device from suddenly turning off; but let's see them better together.
A couple of likes on Instagram, a few videos on TikTok, a couple of voice messages recorded on Whatsapp, a game of Candy Crush and the cell phone battery seems ready to abandon us.
If, as just mentioned, the mobile phones of the early 90's seemed unstoppable with batteries with nickel-cadmium alloys (Ni-Cad), in reality their lithium heirs are much more effective and efficient. A change that seemed necessary when the hardware components of phones and PCs began to have too high an energy consumption that could not be sustained over time.
At that point, lithium batteries take over, more durable but certainly more delicate.
Although better in terms of performance, batteries suffer a lot from the heat. Already a temperature above 30 ° is considered high for the cell.
So we come to the key point: how can I make my cell phone battery last longer?
Let's see together the 3 most common mistakes not to make if you want to protect your phone.
For convenience, or perhaps out of simple habit, many put their smartphone to charge before going to sleep, leaving it there all night.
Mistaken. This bona fide gesture could be bad for your battery over time. Staying on charge all night, reaching 100% could be the cause of your downfall. A tip: put the phone on charge a couple of hours before going to bed, wait for it to reach 20% or 80%, then unplug it and turn it off.
Another urban legend to dispel. The story that in order to make the phone last longer it must be completely downloaded is false. If you want your battery to remain intact, recharge your mobile phone when it reaches 15-20% of battery, in this way you can guarantee up to 2500 charging cycles.
As already mentioned, high temperatures are detrimental to lithium batteries, causing an immediate reduction in the battery. For this reason, recharge your smartphone in a cool place especially in summer. Beware of too powerful chargers, they overheat the battery causing irreparable damage. Make sure you have a suitable charger for your smartphone!
