iPhone XS MAX really excites me. I love iPhone and I’m not even Apple fan. But I love the iPhone! I don’t know what it is. While waiting, I want to share three tips to keep your iPhone battery life longer.
This applies for any electronics with a rechargeable battery, but there are three important characters of rechargeable batteries that you need to understand if you want to make it long life without needing repairing.
1. Battery life is relative to the numbers of recharging time, not the duration of charging. In other words, you want to optimize each charging so you don’t increase the number of charging time unnecessarily. If you charge to 0% to 100% every time, hypothetically you will make the least number of charging for your phone, therefore, your phone battery lasts forever (well not really but feels like forever).
2. The battery is under the extream stress when it’s full. So one of the worst thing you could do is have the device always on the charger, so the device keeps being in full charge. You don’t need necessarily avoid making it 100% as long as you start using it and draining the battery as soon as it becomes 100%.
3. The rechargeable batteries also don’t like being 0% or close to it, because it’s also an extream stress for the batteries. Ideally, keep it at minimum 20%. But it’s difficult in real life, so make sure you always have a charger so when it’s low you recharge it. don’t leave it 0% for a long time.
For the reason 2 and 3, it can be said that it’s the best to keep the battery status in between 20% – 80%. But you also want to minimize the number of charging as much as possible.
Theoretically, if you could live with charging your phone once a day, you are doubling its battery life compared to charging twice a day every day.
My super recommended super solution is to buy three or four 2.4 A fast chargers and cables. Have each one in key locations such as a bedroom, office, study, living room etc. where you spend a lot of time every day. So that you always have a charger available so you can decide to charge your phone at best timing according to the above three factors.
Why 2.4 A fast charger? If you use 1.0 A standard charger, it takes more than 8 hours to charge from 0 – 100%! If you have to move from place to place chances are you have to plug in two or even three times to charge in full instead of one time. That’s battery life shortener.
So it’s very convenient and critical to be able to charge your phone in less than 3 hours. each charger is only &10 and if you have to fix iPhone battery, you don’t know how much it would cost.
Plus there is an intangible productivity increase which has thousands of dollars in value at least but not has to worry about battery insufficiency.
Get 3 or 4 of those chargers. You won’t regret it!
