What’s the right way to charge your smartphone in 2022? How to keep the device battery in good condition?

1. Temperature

Keep the battery at a cool or room temperature. Avoid exposure to the sun and heating elements. Charging at temperatures below +10°C and above +45°C is not recommended. Use between -20°C and +60°C (research) is allowed.By protecting the cell from extreme or even just borderline (high/low) temperatures of +15°C and +35°C you will give the cell a chance to slow its internal degradation (parasitic reactions in the electrolyte and on the electrodes never stop, but can slow down).

2. Deep discharge

Fully discharging your smartphone before it is switched off is not “deep” and is relatively safe. The main thing is not to put it off and charge it as soon as possible.

In most cases there is no need to worry about anything. The monitoring devices inside the battery and the smartphone will do everything for you (they are designed to keep the device alive for 2-3 years).

3. Demanding tasks

For resource-intensive tasks, choose a smartphone with a high power efficiency of the SoC platform (usually new powerful processors). Not so long ago a girl working in a taxi was interested in this question – her old smartphone could not cope with a navigator and a lot of messengers, because of which the battery was running out like crazy.

A weak processor with poor power-saving characteristics overwhelmed even the most powerful battery with a large capacity. If you want to use your mobile device for gaming, video shooting, work, and various demanding purposes, then pay special attention to the choice of the chipset.

How do I charge my new phone correctly?

After unpacking, charge it to 100% and use it as usual. Nothing else is needed. If you forget to do this and immediately discharge it, that’s OK – just charge it fully once at any convenient moment.

A full cycle or a long charge is not necessary for Li-Ion and Li-Polymer in the new smartphone. The batteries are prepared for use from the factory.

It is ideal (although not necessary) to switch off all “heavy” and unnecessary functions when charging your new smartphone for the first time. These can affect the software’s capacity display (percentage of charge). For example, switch to power saving mode or activate airplane mode. This avoids parasitic loads on the battery, which creates the risk of incorrect first detection of the “100%” level.

Is it possible to interrupt the charging of the battery?

Yes, whenever it suits you. Partial filling of the battery capacity causes no harm. Occasional small recharging is a practical way to keep your smartphone or other mobile devices fully charged.
