Many people spend a lot of money on technology, especially smartphones, and their failure is very frustrating. So it’s important to take some “preventive” steps that will protect your phone’s battery in the long run and avoid a shocking repair bill later.
Regular maintenance is the key to the longevity of your smartphone, but there are some mistakes you make day in and day out, most notably “bad charging habits” that can shorten or disrupt your smartphone battery life.
Here are 5 steps you can take to protect your phone battery in the long run:
First, do not rely on “fake” chargers.
High quality chargers have circuits inside, which turn off when there is too much power draw. This protects your phone battery from overcharging, breaking or overheating your phone.
Heat is the biggest enemy of your battery, so avoid counterfeit (non-genuine) chargers, as some can lead to fires and even injuries.
Secondly, be careful with the “power bank”
Just like with cheap chargers, cheap power banks can destroy your battery over time.
Make sure any power bank you use has overcharging protection. If not, you can still use it, but keep an eye on it and once the battery is nearly full, unplug the phone.
It would also be best to avoid power banks with fast charging options, unless they are from a trusted brand.
Fast charging can send a lot of electricity to your phone and damage the battery, or that high voltage can, at the very least, shorten battery life.
Third..Avoid apps that consume battery power
Lithium-ion and lithium-polymer phone batteries only have a limited number of charge cycles before their performance degrades, which is why most people experience battery issues after two years of use.
There’s nothing you can do about your battery eventually ending up, but some things have a more detrimental effect, like downloading apps that monitor battery life, because they’re constantly consuming power.
Spyware, adware, and other malware also have negative effects on phones, as most of them are constantly running in the background.
Fourth.. Do not use your phone while charging
Using your phone while charging can quickly overheat, straining the battery, screen, and processor, USA Today reported.
Fifthly, remove it from the “protective cover”.
Phone cases can be a great way to protect your phone and personalize its look, but when it comes to charging, they can cause temperature issues.
When your phone battery gets too hot, it can damage the rest of your phone, so remove the case while charging, especially if you notice your phone gets hot while plugged in.
