caring-batteryCurrently get care for the battery and extend its life is mainly based on advice as turning off certain features or lower the screen brightness, something I recently discussed in this article about tricks to get more minutes battery smartphone or tablet. Moreover, you also help diagnose the health of this component through a series of fairly simple tests, but this time we will talk about how to make the Li-Ion batteries, which are currently implemented in our mobile phones and tablets , get to have a much longer life in order to minimize having to change the battery and get a time like getting use to which the days after buying the device.

Knowing Li-Ion batteries

Due to security reasons, these batteries are usually limited to 4.20V per cell since it is able to maintain as much as possible the maximum capacity of the battery as they pass the charge cycles. In short, every time you charge the battery completely, limit a little the maximum length thereof, and a lower voltage per cell gets significantly longer life as can be seen in the accompanying chart and table. However, excessively decrease the voltage has a direct impact on the capacity when fully charge, decreasing by almost 20% if you choose to offer 4 volts per cell instead of 4.20 volts. Therefore, manufacturers are always torn between these two features to offer the best balance.

The study also reflected by Phone Arena also indicates that the maximum battery discharge causes further deterioration of the battery since in just 500 “recharge” from 0 to 100% diminish the total capacity by 30%. In this case, obviously, also known quick charge is included.

What are the best practices?

Partial loads turn out to be much better than a single full: The ideal state is between 30% and 80%, so you should always get a close to this capacity.

Avoid full discharges: The worst thing that can happen to a lithium-ion battery is to download the full because certain cells are affected.

Avoid high and low temperatures: Extreme temperatures are really bad for batteries, losing much of their capacity as temperature increases or decreases.

Avoid leaving the battery uncharged for long periods: For this reason, of course, when we buy a smartphone come loaded about 40%, the point where “best” battery is.

Short, one of the problems 100% load: While nothing happens leaving charge the phone all night is not good to leave it for much longer connected to the stream as it may cause a short circuit that swell the batteries.
