Even if only the best smartphone in the world existed, it should excel from the battery point of view. Regardless of tastes, this is an objective fact. A valid reason to take care of one of the most important specifications of a device.
The lithium ion batteries were developed in the 1970s and first marketed by Sony in 1991 for the company’s portable video recorder. Today everything is powered by batteries, from smartphones to electric cars to the International Space Station, which makes battery safety even more crucial.
Lithium-ion batteries are popular due to the amount of energy they can deliver at a given size and weight. A typical lithium-ion battery stores 150 watt hours of electricity in 1 kilogram of battery, compared to the NiMH battery (100 watt hours per kg) or lead acid battery (25 watt hours per kg). It takes 6 kilograms to store the same amount of energy in a lead acid battery that can handle a 1 kilogram lithium-ion battery.
Batteries do not need to be subjected to long charging cycles
All this to show how important it is to take care of a battery. There are still many who believe that the best way to extend the battery life of a newly purchased smartphone is to completely discharge the device and then leave it on charge for at least 12 hours. This is not true, because lithium batteries do not need to be subjected to long charging cycles.
Many false histories on batteries, such as waiting for the percentage of the battery to reach zero and the electronic device to turn off by itself. In fact, this action should always be avoided. The new lithium batteriesin fact, they do not have to be fully discharged, and are able to sustain between 1000 and 1100 recharge cycles.
The most important danger to avoid, however, is his own overheating, with even the risk that they take fire. And that’s why you have to be careful with the cover, they protect a cell phone, but obstruct the ways used for cooling.
Speaking of temperatures. Avoid leaving smartphones near heat sources, that’s good and right. This is because lithium batteries suffer from high temperatures, which shorten their life.
Like heat, so cold: smartphones suffer from opposite poles. Just as it is important not to immediately turn on the PC as soon as you return home. In the long run, this which may seem insignificant, could shorten, and not a little, the very life of the device.
