Three Ways You’re Hurting Your Phone Battery

It can be a real inconvenience when your phone dies. If this happens often, you may be doing something to cause it. Here are three mistakes people make that lower your battery’s life.

Exposing Phone to Extreme Temperatures

In places where it gets really cold in the winter and very warm in the summer, be mindful of where you have your phone. According to Apple, your phone’s battery life will be damaged if exposed to temperatures below, or above 95°F. The heat is worse for your phone because those higher temperatures can permanently damage the battery. Always be aware of the temperatures around your phone.

Letting the Battery Run Down

When smartphones first came around, manufacturers said it was okay to let the battery nearly die before charging it back up. This is no longer the case. Letting your phone’s battery run below 20% can have a negative effect on its life. Be sure to charge it before it gets too low, and you will extend the life of your battery.

Charging it Too Long

Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. That’s why you shouldn’t keep your phone charging if it’s got plenty of battery life. Keep your level anywhere from 20% to 80% and your battery will keep its strength. Don’t use it for a little bit and automatically start charging it. If there is a “smart charge” setting on your phone, turn it on so your phone will protect itself from overcharging.
