If we are talking about how to properly charge your phone, you should first understand what kind of batteries are used in modern devices. Most smartphone manufacturers put lithium-ion charge accumulators in their gadgets, which are designed for about a thousand charge-discharge cycles. After that, it is better to replace them. This was reported by SSPDaily.

However, the duration of the operating period also depends on the proper care of the smartphone. In order not to ruin the battery before the allotted time, it is worth knowing how much percentage you need to charge your phone and how to discharge it correctly.

First of all, it's worth noting that experts recommend charging your smartphone several times during the day. At the same time, add 10-20% to the charge each time. Also, do not allow the gadget to completely discharge and turn off.

The battery life directly depends on how much the owner of the smartphone charges it each time. There are clear guidelines. For example, you shouldn't charge the battery completely every time. Why can't I charge my phone to 100%? The fact is that in this case, the battery structure will be destroyed faster.

What is the best way to keep the charge level? It is advisable to try not to go below 20% and not to go above 80%. If you follow this rule, the battery will last much longer, because there will be no overvoltage that occurs when it is fully charged.

There is one more important nuance to keep in mind. Many people wonder if they can put their phone on charge overnight. You shouldn't, and not just because the battery will quickly charge to 100%. After charging to full, the process stops, but over time, the phone discharges and charging resumes. If you do this too often, the battery degrades at an accelerated rate.
