Your smartphone battery is a valuable component. Indispensable, even. Without it, your terminal would be like an overpriced clipboard. The problem, of course, is that this component is also extremely sensitive, extremely fragile and it is imperative to respect some basic advice in terms of recharging to preserve its physical integrity and, by extension, the autonomy of your phone.
These tips do not fall from the sky, of course, and they are all from the last report issued by the Battery University. This name may not evoke anything in you and this is perfectly normal because this site is not very well known.
No, and it's actually owned by a company called Cadex Electronics, a company that is recognized as a world benchmark in battery testing and analysis.
It was founded in the 1980s and during all these years it has developed many dedicated devices, devices which have required years of research and development.
In its article, Battery University explains that lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to stress. Like human beings, then. It also has many harmful effects on their performance and their autonomy. Very harmful effects, even, and it is precisely for this reason that it is imperative to follow some basic advice.
Do not leave your phone charging when the battery is full
According to the site, therefore, it is best not to leave the phone charging when the battery is full. Why ? Quite simply because she will take small regular electrical charges to keep her at 100%, charges that will also keep her in a state of high stress.
In a way, it's a bit like playing sports all the time, without taking a break. Ultimately, this way of doing things could cause wear and tear on your muscles and their ligaments.
It is exactly the same here.
Avoid fully charging your phone
If you're the type who charges your phone 100% every day or, at best, every other day, then you are probably killing its battery.
Why ? Quite simply because the high voltages also cause the stress of the chemical compounds of the battery. Ultimately, this can therefore have a significant impact on its autonomy, and even on its lifespan.
Charge your phone as soon as you can
Full charge cycles should also be avoided. They tend to heat and stress the chemical compounds in lithium-ion batteries. Again, this can have serious repercussions in the long run.
The best technique is therefore to charge your phone as soon as possible and thus opt for shorter cycles. In the same vein, it is also preferable not to wait until the battery is completely empty to recharge your phone.
This shouldn't surprise you, but batteries are very sensitive to heat. In this context, it is best to avoid leaving your phone in direct sunlight for hours.
Finally, do not lose sight of the fact that most of the current telephones integrate non-removable batteries. In this context, it is best to be very careful with our phone.
