This is How you Are Supposed To be Charging Your Smartphone

A fellow of mine once told me that there is no greater feeling a computer geek can have other than having a girlfriend who understands and writes codes. For a while I always thought this notion was correct, until I met myself. Many people might disagree with me  but there is nothing I value more in this world more than good information, a well informed man is a very powerful man and up until recently, I have been guilty of this, but now I've learnt a better way to do it. (I am talking about charging my phones). So today, I'm gonna reveal to use the correct way you should be charging that precious device of yours. 
tips for charging your iPhone as fast as possible
You will agree with me that one of the problems on all smartphones is that the battery juice gets drained very quickly and they hardly survive for a day. Some of us do blame ourselves for not charging the smartphone the correct way especially when we bought it new, while some this have a deep-rooted notion that it’s better to charge them when they are almost dead, as charging smartphones in small spurts could cause long-lasting damage to their batteries.

No matter what your own reason might be, it might surprise that scientists beg to differ, because according to a Battery specialist firm, known as Battery University, the lithium-ion batteries in our smartphones are sensitive to their own versions of ‘stress’ therefore, an extended stress could be damaging your smartphone battery’s long-term lifespan, like in the case of human and if you wish to keep your smartphone's battery in excellent condition and stop worrying about battery life, then you need to start practicing these.

1.     Don’t keep your Phone Plugged-in When it’s Fully Charged: 

Funny but yet annoying, I myself used to do this. When my phone is completely charged, I will still leave it plugged in to the power source.
According to Battery University, leaving your smartphone overcharged is bad for the battery and once your smartphone is fully charged to 100%, it receives ‘trickle charges’ to keep it at 100% while plugged in thereby keeping the battery in a high-stress, high-tension state, which reduces the chemistry the makes up the battery cells.
Always unplug your phone from the power source once the charging is 100%, there is nothing like 101%

2.   Keep Your Device Temperature Cool: 

These smartphones through their sensors are really sensitive. I'm sure you've noticed that your phone's back-light automatically turns off when there is an on-going call and you bring it closer to your ear, and the screen brightness automatically increases or decreases depending on the exposure of your phone's screen to light. "Remove  your phones from its cases when you charge it" Apple suggests. If you notice that your device gets hot when you charge it, then take it out of its case before charging. Also, ensure that your smartphone is covered when you are out in the hot sun. It will safeguard your battery’s health. Make use of a phone pack made specifically for your phone!!!

3.  Try not to Charge Your Smartphone to 100%: 

I know that at this point, many won't agree with me, but trust me Li-ion batteries do not need to be fully charged. It is better not to fully charge your battery, because a high voltage stresses the battery” and wears it away in the long run which will result to a decreased life-span.
However, you can charge your device whenever you feel there is need to, don’t wait till your smartphone battery runs down out of power before you charge it. Charging them occasionally throughout the day can help the battery’s performance instead when they are completely empty. Switch off your device when the battery level is at least 10%

According to Battery University, charging your smartphone when it loses 10 percent of its charge would be the best-case scenario. While this may not be practical for many people, so just plug in your smartphone whenever you can. It is ok to plug and unplug it multiple times a day. This not only keep your smartphone’s battery at optimal performance for a longer time, but also keeps it topped up the entire day. Furthermore, constant top-ups also allows you to use features, like location-based features that use your smartphone’s GPS antenna that would you normally not use, as it can eat up your battery life.
