Here are some tips to help preserve your phone’s battery life.

Understand Your Battery

One thing you need to know is that, eventually, all batteries will die. Most cell phone batteries are lithium-ion batteries, which means they really only have a certain lifespan to begin with. That can be anywhere from 500 to 2,000 charge cycles, depending on the strength of the battery.

But just be aware that if your device is older and has been through the ringer, so to speak, chances are you could simply benefit from an upgraded device or a battery replacement.

Don’t Let It Die

A common misconception regarding phone batteries is that if you leave your device plugged in all night, it’s going to kill your battery faster. That’s now how it works.

In fact, leaving your phone plugged in overnight or after the phone has already been charged is actually better than letting your battery die completely before recharging it back to life.

Whether that means leaving it plugged in for extended periods, or charging it here and there every so often, not allowing your battery to ever get fully drained is a great way to extend its life.

Keep It Cool

Keep in mind that phone batteries, or lithium ion batteries of any sort, are not built to withstand heat or elevated temperatures. That means leaving your phone in a hot car all day could actually be holding it back and damaging its capabilities.

That goes for heat from your chargers, as well; “lightning” or “fast” chargers may seem like a great idea, but it could also generate extra heat and fry your battery after time.

Additionally, the wireless chargers that are now all the rage are actually capable of producing what’s called “waste heat,” which could also hurt the battery’s lifespan.
