Smartphones: Charging the battery to 100% is a mistake! – Leak

    Charge your phone up to 100% every day? You are making a mistake! Especially if you have a mobile phone and charger equipped with fast charging technologies, which although very useful, end up bringing another problem to the equation, the increase in temperature.

    Smartphones: Charging the battery to 100% is a mistake!

    So even though we all do this, the truth is that charging any electronic device to 100% battery power is a big mistake. Do you know the golden rule for charging a battery? It's the 80/20 rule!

    After all, in case you didn't know, a lithium-ion battery goes into high stress levels when it's above 80%, or it's below 20% charge. However, these stress levels increase significantly the closer you are to 0% or 100%.

    Very briefly, charging from 99% to 100% is much more difficult and harmful for the battery than charging from 49% to 50%. This is even taking into account that we are talking about the exact same load percentage (1%).

    So… Is it a good idea to NEVER reach 100%?

    That's not what we're saying. The 100% is there to be used if you really need it.

    So, if by any chance you need the full capacity of your battery to face an intense day of work, use it. However, if you are hoping to have a lighter day at work, and you even have a charger near you throughout the day, try not to go over 80%. Also, always try to charge with the battery above 20%.

    The battery will thank you, and of course your smartphone will last longer in your hands. All this because the battery will age more slowly, with these extra cares, truth be told, they are not that difficult to fulfill.
