So how many different ways you heard from other people of how to charge your gadgets so their battery lives last longer? The most I heard of is to use the battery up completely before charging full. Also there’s saying about keeping them charge between 40% – 80%. So what’s really the ideal way to prolong the battery life?
Here’s the summary of what you should do:
1) Perform shallow discharges. Don’t discharge 100%. According to Battery University, partial discharges reduces stress and prolong battery life.
2) Fully discharge it once a month. This is to re-calibrate your device to tell you how long your battery life remains.
3) Keep it cool. A hot battery will degrade in health much quicker than a cool one.
