It's harder to replace your smartphone lithium ion battery than to treat it right in the first place. Numerous smartphones don't give customers access to their batteries. This includes all iPhones and many other Android phones. Official battery replacement can be costly or awkward. There are environmental concerns too. Smartphones are, frankly, an environmental disaster and extending the lifespan of your phone battery helps mitigate that.
Here are a few things you can do to protect and expand the life expectancy of your smartphone's battery. By battery life expectancy I mean how long and months your battery will last before it should be replaced. In contrast, battery life refers to how many hours or days your phone will last on a single charge.
1. Battery manufacturers state that after around 400 cycles a smartphone battery's capacity will degrade by 20%. It may only store 80% of the energy it did initially and will keep on degrading with extra charge cycles. The truth, in any case, is that smartphone batteries likely degrade quicker than that.
2. Keep away from extreme warmth and cold. In the event that your smartphone gets extremely hot or cold it can strain the battery and reduce its life expectancy. Leaving it in your car would most likely be the most noticeably worst culprit.
3. Avoid fast charging.
Charging your smartphone rapidly depletes the battery. Except if you truly need it, abstain from utilizing quick charging.
Indeed, the more slowly you charge your battery the better, so if it's all the same to you moderate charging for the time being. Charging your smartphone from your PC just as certain smart plugs can constrain the current going into your smartphone, easing back its charge rate.
4. Abstain from depleting your smartphone battery right to 0% or charging it right to 100%.
Used batteries had 'battery memory'. If you didn't charge them to full and release them to zero battery, they “remembered” and diminished their useful range. It was better for their lifespan if you generally depleted and charged the battery totally.
Newer smartphone batteries work in an alternate manner. It stresses the battery to deplete it totally or charge it totally. Smartphone batteries are most happy if you keep them above the 20% limit and beneath 90%. To be amazingly exact, they're most joyful around half limit.
Short charges are most likely fine, coincidentally, so in case you're simply the kind of individual that finds every now and again topping up your smartphone for brisk charges, that is fine for your battery.
5. Charge your smartphone to half for long haul stockpiling
The most beneficial charge for a lithium ion battery is by all accounts about half. If you are going to store your smartphone for an extended period, charge it to half before turning it off and putting it away. This is simpler on the battery than charging it to 100% or letting it channel to 0% before capacity.
The battery, coincidentally, keeps on corrupting and releasing if the smartphone is killed and not being utilized by any means. This generation of batteries was intended to be utilized. You can always turn the smartphone on every several months and top the battery up to half.
The tips above address battery lifespan directly. Battery lifespan is also affected by battery life, how long your phone lasts on a single charge. Improving battery life extends the lifespan of the battery by slowing down those charge cycles.
6. Turn down the screen brightness.
A smartphone's screen is the component that commonly utilizes the most battery. Turning down the screen brightness will save the energy. Utilizing Auto Brightness presumably saves the battery for the vast majority via naturally lessening screen brightness when there's less light, in spite of the fact that it accomplishes include more work for the light sensor.
What might really spare the most battery here is oversee it physically and decently fanatically. That is, physically set it to the most minimal obvious level each time there's a change in ambient lighting levels.
7. Diminish the screen break (auto-lock)
If you leave your screen on without utilizing it, it will consequently kill after a period of time, generally a couple of minutes. You can save energy by decreasing the Screen Timeout time (called Auto-Lock on iPhones). By default, I trust iPhones to set their Auto-Lock to 2 minutes, which may be more than you need.
8. Pick a dark theme.
For some OLED screens, displaying black means not turning on the pixel. This indirectly saves energy. Hence, picking a dark theme for your screen saves battery in the long run.
9. Remove Facebook and other app hoarders
Facebook is notorious in draining battery’s life. Removal of the app will help in saving energy.
If you really need to use Facebook, maybe restrict permissions such as video autoplay, access to your location, and notifications.
There are some other app hoarders that you need to watch out. Removing them helps.
10. Fetch Emails
Many say changing your email from push to fetch will save battery. Push means your device is always listening for new email and gets push through immediately.
Fetch means your device checks for a new message at a given interval like every 15 minutes. The most energy efficient thing to do would be to fetch manually.,
To sum it up, turn off your NFC, GPS and bluetooth when you are not using it. Hope these tips can help to save your battery’s life.
