We all know how important our phones are now a days. And the battery is equally important too, Poor battery performance or short battery life span are enough to ruin the experience of using a smartphone.

So today we are gonna talk about Battery and Charging habits to maximize the battery life as well as battery health. 

1. Keep your battery from going to 0% or 100%

This is a holdover from older battery types: lithium-ion batteries don’t work this way. There is no battery memory to calibrate. On the contrary, you’re stressing your lithium-ion battery more and shortening its lifespan by doing so: discharging your battery fully at 100% compared to 60% can halve the lifespan of your battery .

2. Avoid charging your battery beyond 100%

While leaving your phone to charge overnight is a common habit, it can actually shorten its battery lifespan. When kept at 100% charge your battery not only experiences higher stress from the higher voltage, heat also builds up over time.



3. Charge slowly if you can

No one will argue that fast charging technologies are a great time-saver. If you’re intent on maximising your battery’s lifespan, you should probably save them for emergencies as they can stress out and damage your battery, especially if you have an older phone.

On the other hand, charging your battery more slowly is good for it. As such, charging your phone through your computer or laptop can actually be a good thing



4. Turn off WiFi and Bluetooth if you’re not using them

It’s also important to keep in mind things that will help your battery lastlonger on a single charge. After all the fewer charge cycles your phone battery goes through, the slower it degrades and the longer its lifespan.

One common drain on battery life is leaving your phone’s WiFi or Bluetooth on while they’re not in use as they do drain your battery scanning for networks or devices to connect to.

Realistically speaking, if you’re just moving from one place with WiFi to another, like going from your home to the office, it’s probably not a big deal if you don’t disable your phones WiFi. But if you’re spending a whole day out and not planning to use your WiFi at all, you should probably turn it off to save some battery life.




5. Manage your location services

A lot of apps these days track your phone’s location to support their services, constantly scanning with a combination of GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and cell tower locations for maximum accuracy. To ensure that you’re not wasting battery life, it’s best to only let these apps access your location services only when you’re using the app.




6. Let your assistant go

While features like Google Assistant and Siri can be really useful to have, they add to the battery drain of your phone, especially if they’re constantly listening out for your voice commands.

If you don’t need or hardly use these features, it’s best to disable them, or at least disable their “Hey Siri” or “OK Google” voice command function.



7. Don’t close your apps, manage them instead

By now you may be thinking you should start closing everything running on your phone as much as possible save battery life. Wait no, not so fast!

Closing apps i.e. force-quitting apps that are running in the background on your phone doesn’t actually improve your battery life at all. In fact, it can actually make things worse.



8. Keep that brightness down

We get it, your phone screen is gorgeous. But screen brightness is a major drain on your phone battery. If you need to conserve battery power, turning it to its lowest-but-still-readable setting is the way to go.

9. Make use of smart battery modes

Today’s Android and iOS devices come with their own smart battery saver or low power mode. These are especially helpful as they automatically cut back on functions that drain battery life, such as CPU usage, notifications, mail fetching and screen brightness.



10. Embrace the dark mode (if you have an OLED screen)

If you got a more recent phone like the Samsung Galaxy S9 or any device having OLED display could cut down on your battery drain by switching to Dark Mode.

 

 


Hope this will help some people.

No it's doesn't, See it will stop at 100% for once, But after sometime the battery will be consumed a lil and then again it will be charged. and this will keep on happening till the charger is connected. (Because except in One ASUS mobile, All the phones routes electricity from Charger 》 Battery 》 Phone.) So this will keep stressing the battery and will have negative effect on battery health.
