Here is the best way to charge your phone, backed by science

It’s terrible to know that our phone battery can’t even last a single day but more than the batteries its how you charge your device that is to be blamed.

With the help of Battery University site, created by Cadex, we were able to identify the “stress” that our lithium-ion batteries undergo and how they can be charged more efficiently.

1) Don’t keep your device plugged in when it’s fully charged. It gets ,”trickle charge” to maintain the 100% Battery level. This puts the battery under high stress and tension state and wears it from the within. Battery University concludes after scientific explanations – “When fully charged, remove the battery” from its charging device. “This is like relaxing the muscles after strenuous exercise.”

2) Try not to charge it up to 100%.

“Li-ion does not need to be fully charged, nor is it desirable to do so. In fact, it is better not to fully charge, because a high voltage stresses the battery” – Battery University.

3) Ultimately, charge your phone whenever you can. It’s highly recommended to charge your phone in short bursts rather than waiting for the battery to hog down to a minimal level and then charge it for longer hours. Plugging and unplugging your device multiple times a day is fine.

4) Make sure your device is not overheating while charging. Keep away from the sun while traveling and if your cover/case makes your device hot, keep it away too while charging.
