When Is the Best Time to Charge Your Smartphone?
The ideal charging guideline for most smartphones is to keep your battery between 30% and 90% charged. Charge it up when it falls below 50%, but disconnect it before it reaches 100%. As a result, you should reconsider leaving it plugged in overnight.
When a lithium-ion battery is charged to 80 per cent and then increased to 100 per cent, it ages faster. As a result, partial charging is ideal and can help to extend the life of a mobile battery. Finally, smaller, more frequent charging is preferable for extending the life of Li-ion batteries.
Should You Charge Your Smartphone Completely?
No, not every time you turn it on. Idle charging should be avoided. Some experts recommend charging your battery from zero to 100 per cent once a month to re-calibrate it. Others, on the other hand, dismiss this as a myth about modern lithium-ion batteries used in mobile phones. When the battery is fully charged, the stress voltage of the battery increases. As a result of the lost energy, it generates an excessive amount of heat.
Should You Charge Your Phone Overnight?
As a general, it is best to avoid it. If you charge your phone overnight, you will almost certainly miss the critical charging to 80 per cent, which is ideal for long-term battery life. Even though most modern smartphones have built-in sensors that stop charging when the battery reaches 100%, they will still deplete a small amount of charge if left on.
The trickle charge occurs when the charger attempts to keep the phone charged at 100% even though your phone loses charge throughout the night. This means that during a longer-than-required charge, your phone is constantly cycling between 99 per cent and 100 per cent. The safest option is to enable Do Not Disturb and Airplane Mode. Even better, you could turn your phone completely off. Remove the cover if you’re going to leave it plugged in for an extended period of time to keep it from overheating.
Heating has an impact on battery life.
Aside from the other factors mentioned, temperature plays an important role in extending the life of a mobile battery. Indeed, it is possibly the most serious threat to the battery’s long-term health. High temperatures, like high voltages, stress the battery and cause it to lose capacity more quickly than when stored at moderate temperatures.
On a hot day, don’t leave your phone charging beneath your pillow or connected to the dashboard of your car.
