6 Tips to Prolong Your Mobile Phone Battery Life by 20%

We know that Mobile phone battery life is a headache for us, for example, Xiaomi’s mobile phone uses a 1930mAh lithium-ion battery, which is 30% more than traditional mobile phone battery. However, it still doesn’t hold enough juice for us.

Common Misunderstanding of cell phone battery

Misunderstanding # 1. The number of battery charge and discharge is limited. The battery power should be used as much as possible to recharge. In fact, the life of lithium polymer battery has nothing to do with this.

Misunderstanding # 2. The charging time must be more than 12 hours. Repeat three times to activate the battery. The actual lithium polymer battery can activate the battery after 3-5 times of normal charge and discharge cycles.

Lithium-ion polymer battery use:

1. How to charge a new battery.

In the use of a lithium battery, it should be noted that the battery enters a sleep state after being left for a period of time. At this time, the capacity is lower than the normal value, and the use time is also shortened.

However, the lithium battery is very easy to activate, as long as after 3-5 normal charge and discharge cycles can activate the battery and restore normal capacity. Due to the characteristics of the lithium battery itself, it is determined that it has almost no memory effect. Therefore, the new lithium battery in the user’s mobile phone does not require special methods and equipment during the activation process.

2. The charge and discharge characteristics of lithium batteries and nickel batteries are very different, and it can be clearly stated that all the serious formal technical information I have reviewed emphasizes that overcharge and overdischarge will affect lithium batteries, especially Liquid lithium-ion batteries cause great harm. Therefore, it is best to charge the battery in accordance with standard time and standard methods. In particular, do not charge for more than 12 hours (charger display is full).

3, personal recommendations mobile phone lithium-ion battery do not charge too full and do not use any electricity, the battery did not run out of charge, will not cause damage to the battery, charging within 2-3 hours is appropriate, not necessarily have to be full. However, the lithium battery should be fully charged (normal charging time) and discharged after 1- to 2-times every 3 to 4 months.

4, long-term unused lithium batteries, should be stored in a cool and dry place, in a semi-electric state (full power of 70– 80%, if your phone is full display 4 grid, then 3 can be) the most Yes, there is a danger of full battery storage and the battery will be damaged. The battery will be destroyed if it is stored without electricity. Every 3 to 6 months, check whether you want to add electricity.

5, do not often deep discharge, deep charge. However, after about 30 charge cycles, the power detection chip will automatically perform a deep discharge and deep charge to accurately assess the state of the battery.

6. If you do not use it for a long period of time, please store it with a charge of 40% to 60%. When the power is too low, over discharge may occur due to self-discharge. Since lithium-ion batteries will naturally age when they are not in use, they should be purchased at the time of purchase and should not be purchased too much.
