The Importance of Properly Powering your Device
In your busy day, smartphone battery power is probably the last thing in the world you’d like to take time to learn about. But let me explain that taking care of your smartphone’s battery is going to save you money and hassle, & will even improve how you use your device.
Here are the best tips for taking care of your smartphone battery
The good news is there are a lot of myths about batteries that no longer apply to your device. Being a smart device, whether it’s a tablet or phone, the battery capabilities have been taken into consideration and made to be simple and maximized for extended use. Today’s batteries are pretty easy to take care of. Pay attention to these few tips and you’ll be all set.
- To extend the life of your battery keep it charged between 40% and 80%
The battery does not need to be drained all the way, except maybe once a month (which probably happens anyways by accident, right?) Keep it topped off whenever you can and that should be perfect.
- Use the right charger
No-name brands that copy other brands products are usually no good. They will perform the worst in charging your device (i.e. take forever) and often cause harm. Best bet is to use a trusted brand like Ventev or the original product manufacturer’s charger.
- Have the chargers you need where you need them
The best bet for having your device adequately charged is to have more than one charger. My preference is to not have a charger on the night stand. Rather having one in the car and at work or close to the area where you spend most of your day. “I’m not in one spot long enough,” you say, then carry your a battery powered charger and have the power need with a product like the Ventev Powercell wall charger battery pack, or a powered phone case like the Mophie Juice Pack. These will give you doubled or tripled battery life and surely get you through the day to your next charging port.
- Don’t leave it on the charger when it’s at 100% (like leaving it plugged in all night every night)
Although you shouldn’t be too worried about this, the battery does turn off charging after it’s at 100% to prevent damage, nevertheless any excess heat is not good for the battery, so leaving it unplugged when it’s at 100% is best. The battery actually operates at maximum performance when it’s not at 100% (again 40% to 80% is best).
- Keep your device at comfortable temperatures
Heat can cause battery issues and so can cold. Keep it in the same environment you’re in and that should be good enough.
- Turn it off once in a while (maybe even daily)
Turning off the device does it good in many ways. It helps the battery refresh and it also let’s the device’s computer restart (which is also the first thing to do when it’s not working properly). Restarting it gets the systems back to normal.
Following these tips are a sure way to maximize your smart device’s performance. Battery care is pretty simple, but a few tricks can really extend the life and help you be less stressed about needing to constantly charge your phone.
