Even if the hardware such as display, processor, memory, camera, etc. is usually in smartphones, tablets and similar devices in the foreground, but especially the battery is important for all of us. What battery life is possible? How to increase the battery life? How can you treat battery as gently as possible? How frequently should I charge my batteries?

All interesting questions that Shen Ye answered by XDA Devs now. Especially some myths are still widely used, with which the experienced insider, tech junkie, nerd and expert clears up.

Remove batteries by charging cycles, they will lose in the long run performance. Modern batteries can handle up to 1,000 of these charging cycles before then fall more than 90 percent of their actual capacity. Currently, the claim seems to reinforce that a charge cycle really a full charge from 0 – equivalent to 100 percent. A cargo 30-100 percent is therefore not a full cycle, but only with a further charge of at least 30 percent of this is completed and the two expected loads than one cycle. In recent years, manufacturers like LG have already increase the number of compatible products for battery charging cycles.
Not to accelerate the aging of the battery yet, the fully charged device should not be unnecessarily long on the power supply you. Where now automatically cancel many smartphones and tablets usually after complete charging the charge. Therefore, the charge of the last 5 percent takes longer with many devices since then shut down the charge current and no longer charge the battery, but is quasi supplied only with the most necessary energy to maintain the current level.
A very highly entertaining myth is the supposed positive characteristic, to obtain the full capacity of the battery as often as possible by a full battery discharge to 0 percent. This is not good in the long run, but even damaging the battery and can age faster and lose capacity. Only the registered device in the battery stats can be reset in some cases by again to get a better or more accurate indication of the actual capacity. Connected with it the myth is to have new equipment should be particularly long time at the first charge on the current or even more times in succession to fully discharge, so that the full size is not available at all. The full discharge is basically for lithium-ion batteries is not good.
Finally, since there is still the loading speed. Although there are an artificial acceleration of this, as with current Qualcomm processor platforms, but this is also more harmful. Particularly good and gentle for modern batteries is a slow charge. Moreover, it usually does not help to use “greater” power supplies because batteries are charged only with as much power as they can hold. Along with a faster charge a higher heat, which is also not good for lithium batteries. Without reason HTC has not waived the said function from Qualcomm, as for example in one of the battery is securely installed and should be treated more gently.


Who discharges its batteries are not always up to the last drop (sometimes at ~ 20 percent already hanging on the wall socket), they do not unnecessarily be long after the full charge of electricity and perhaps rather accesses devices without accelerated charging is certainly a long time able to enjoy the full power of its battery. Ultimately, however, there is still a problem: First of all smartphones have some users often several times a day to the socket, so the cycles that inevitably frequent unfortunately can quickly reach the specified number of repetitions and thus provide for a decreasing battery capacity.
