This Is The Best Way To Charge Your Phone

Many of us charge up our phones while we sleep – so we can rest assured our handset will be at 100% when its alarm goes off.

But that could actually be damaging your battery long-term, battery company Cadex warns via its website Battery University.

Instead, the best way to charge your phone isn’t to boost it up to 100% and leave it on the charger for hours – it’s to let your device ‘snack’ on a charger throughout the day, according to Science Alert.

When a phone charges for hours, it goes up to 100%, then gets ‘trickle charges’ to keep it there – which puts your battery under stress, according to Battery University.

Battery University says, ‘When fully charged, remove the battery. This is like relaxing the muscles after strenuous exercise.

‘Li-ion does not need to be fully charged, nor is it desirable to do so. In fact, it is better not to fully charge, because a high voltage stresses the battery.’

Instead, ‘top up’ your battery when it drops 10% or so – but not all the way up to 100%. That way, your battery will last longer.
