Don't Charge Your Phone to 100%, Here's Why

  • Published: 24 November 2019
  • These days, our phones are basically part of us. Almost like your lift pinky. While they are magical devices that can do pretty much anything, phones aren’t invincible! Do you know, for example, that your phone uses the battery to search for reception? This will seriously drain it!

    By the way, don't let your phone lose its battery completely before you charge it. Just wait ‘til it gets below that 30% line. If you plug in your phone every time it gets a little below 100%, eventually, it will have a hard time recharging. So check out these tips and tricks so that your cell can stay by your side for longer!

    - If you notice that you’re not using an app anymore, uninstall it from your phone.
    - If you know you’re going to be in an area with bad reception, turning on Airplane Mode will save your battery.
    - When you’re picking a phone case, get one that has a little plug for the charging port!
    - Use a dry cotton cloth to clean the screen and the back, like what you might clean your glasses with.
    - Your phone can tell you a lot about its battery life! Your phone might also be able to tell you when you last charged it.
    - If your phone is hooked up to your charger and keeps charging after it’s reached 100%, it can drain the battery.
    - Keep charging past that for hours while you’re in a deep slumber. In the morning you’ll find that your phone probably won’t stay at a very full battery for long!
    - If there are any tears in the cord you haven’t noticed, or if it doesn’t fit just right in your phone’s charging port, you might be at risk for a spark.
    - Don't let your phone lose its battery completely before you charge it; just wait ‘til it gets below that 30% line.
    - If you keep using your phone while it’s plugged in, it won’t charge as quickly, and the battery will drain faster after you unplug it.
    - If it’s super cold or super hot, it’s not good for your phone. Either one can hurt its internal parts!
    - If your screen is black, your phone doesn’t have to “work” to light up any brightly colored pixels.
    - Yeah, it might get a little annoying unlocking your phone more often, but setting a 15 to 30-second timeout can go a long way!
    - Each time you light up your screen, it uses a little bit of battery. Think of how much battery you’re using just to check your screen that many times a day!
