Edited by Mayur Deshpande, Co-Founder, Mouserise

Whether you're constantly on the go or glued to your device for work and entertainment, optimizing your phone's battery life is essential for uninterrupted usage. Anyone who has used a phone for many years will probably notice that its battery back-up seems to get shorter over time, perhaps lasting only half a day even after a full charge. That’s because every time your phones lithium-ion battery charges and discharges energy it loses some charge holding capacity.

Here's a comprehensive guide with tested tips to help you maintain your phone’s battery life.

1. Avoid fully charging your phone’s battery from 0 to 100%

Limiting your phone’s maximum charge to 80-90% is one of the best option to maximize battery's life. By allowing partial charging, we reduce the number of complete charge and discharge cycles of the battery.

Today we can see that both Android and iOS phones and tablets have a dedicated battery setting to allow partial charging up to 80% to 90% which results in prolonged battery life.

2. Avoiding extreme temperatures

Both extreme hot above 35 degree C and cold below -9 degree C environments can affect the Li-ion battery’s chemical structure in the long run thereby reducing the battery’s life. 

Keep your phones in a well ventilated space, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for longer time and also avoid using phone while it’s charging since it can ramp up heat internally.

3. Use Power-Saving mode

This is called Low Power Mode on iOS devices and Power Saver Mode or Battery Saver on an Android devices. Power-saving mode adjusts various phone settings like enabling dark mode, reducing screen brightness, restricting use of certain apps, turning off location services and background processes to conserve power. Conserving power also means reducing charging cycles and reduced charging cycles result in longer battery life.

4. Updating the phone’s OS and apps

Always keep your phone’s operating system updated. In addition to OS updates, security fixes and bug patches, updates may include new ways to improve power management and battery performance.

Tested Result

Typically any phone ranging from budget price segment up till flagship premium comes with a Li-ion ( Lithium Ion) battery, these battery normally perform well up to 2 to 2 and half years after which their back-up starts to drop gradually by 20 to 30% and by the end of 3rd year you'll have to replace the battery.

By following the above tips, we can easily extend the battery's life span at least by 40 to 50% which goes further up to 4 to 4 and half years of battery life in other words battery life is extended by one more year untill you need to replace it.
