- Avoid the Red Zone: Studies have shown that continually using batteries down into the red zone (15% life or less) will shortly their lifespan.
- Charge level goals: Optimum life levels for batteries is between 65% and 75%. While its not possible or practical to maintain these levels consistently, its good to have an ideal level point.
- Keep them good enough: If youre unable to keep your phones battery at an optimum level, keeping them between 45% and 75% will help you avoid long-term damage.
- Dont fully charge: Its not recommended to fully charge your phone, particularly from the red zone. Most batteries are lithium-ion, and its not necessary for them to be fully charged at all times. High voltages stress the batteries.
- Dont charge overnight: By habit, some users automatically plug in their phones when they go to bed. If keeping the batteries at 100% stresses it and shortens its life, then logically, keeping it in the charger overnight would be more of the same. Once the battery is fully charged, unplug it immediately.
