Increase your battery life- 5 simple ways

Let’s start with what exactly battery life is, before we go to the ways to increase battery life
 In simple words, how long a device can work on a single charge of a rechargeable battery is referred to as the battery life.

And Battery lifetime is the duration of a rechargeable battery, often stated in number of charge/discharge cycles, until it degrades irreversibly and cannot hold a useful charge

Now let’s see the 5 simple ways to Increase battery life:

1. Don’t let your phone overheat

You should take basic precautions like not keeping your phone on the dash board of the car where it will get a lot of direct sunlight

Avoid charging your phone while playing graphically intensive games, because that will also raise the temperature of the phone and harm the battery.

2. Don’t use your phone while charging

This is called parasitic charging and this kind of usage can apparently be quite damaging. Small amounts of usage load stop the battery from entering a full charging cycle, damaging the battery.

3. Don’t use a fake charger

Use only the company’s own chargers – this is particularly important if your phone supports quick charging. High capacity chargers can quickly charge the phone up to 70 percent capacity, but can also damage it in the process, if not properly optimised. Using higher current than specified reduces charge retention capacity of battery cells in the long run.

4. Don’t let your battery fully die

Avoid your battery fully die. Charge it when it gets to around 10-12 percent charge left. This increases the life of the battery.

5. Don’t leave the phone on the charger all night

“Once the smartphone battery voltage reaches its capacity, it automatically cuts off charging,” says Xolo. The OnePlus product manager agreed, saying, “It’s ok to keep your phone plugged in after it’s already fully charged. It won’t hurt the battery.”

However, he added, “Since it’s not great for the environment, I still recommend unplugging your phone when it reaches a full charge.”

Also make sure your phone’s brightness is optimum as more brightness consumes a lot of battery of your phone.
