Smartphones have become one of the important items to support daily activities. The variety of smartphone models currently available in the market also follows the trend of increasing smartphone use, thus presenting large-capacity batteries to last all day. Generally, smartphones already use non-removable batteries or cannot be opened and plugged in because they are embedded in the device. This battery is certainly not easy to replace if it is suddenly damaged or its power decreases. The following is how to care for a smartphone with a non-removable battery so that it lasts longer
Unplug The Charger Then The Battery is Full
The first way is to immediately unplug the charger after the smartphone battery is fully charged. Although currently smartphones are equipped with advanced technology that will automatically cut off the current when the battery is full, there are also smartphones that do not yet have this technology. This will cause excessive heat on your smartphone and also affect the health of your battery.
Don’t Let The Battery Run Low for Too Long
Generally, many people just charge the smartphone battery when the battery is red or below 15%. Some even keep using it until it reaches 0% before charging the battery. This habit is not good for the health of your smartphone battery. This is because when charging a battery that is almost dead or below 10%, the battery will be forced to accept a high current voltage which, if it occurs frequently, will shorten the life of the battery. Ideally, charge your smartphone when it reaches 20% so that daily activities are not disturbed and the battery is not easily worn out.
Turn Off The Smartphone While it is Charging
Turning off the smartphone while it is charging is recommended to optimize the battery charging process and extend its lifespan. If it can’t be turned off because of work or so, the most important thing is not to use the smartphone while it is charging. Allow your smartphone to be fully charged before using it again. This can help maintain battery life and also prevent your smartphone from overheating.
Adjust Screen Brightness
Besides having to pay attention to how to charge properly, you can also extend battery life by adjusting the screen brightness level. Make sure you set it to a level that is not too bright, and not too dark so that the eyes are comfortable when using it and don’t eat up a lot of battery power. Your smartphone can be used all day.
Use The Original Charger
When you buy a smartphone, you will definitely get a default charger from the brand. This charger is a device that fits perfectly and is perfect for charging your smartphone battery because it is made based on the needs of the power supply in your smartphone as well as the voltage so that your smartphone can be charged optimally without damaging its parts. However, if you use a fake charger, there is a possibility that the voltage difference delivered can damage the components in the battery. Your smartphone battery can run out more easily even though it is only used for light activities.
Activate The Power Saver feature
Various smartphones are usually equipped with the Power Saver feature which will usually activate automatically if the battery reaches a certain level, for example 15%. The function of this feature is to save battery by turning off applications and other features that are not needed, such as GPS, Bluetooth and applications running in the background. When this feature is activated, your smartphone’s performance can slow down as a way to save battery absorption. But you can manage to use this feature at any time without having to wait for the battery to reach a near critical level. You can enable it in Settings easily.
Avoid Placing The Smartphone in Hot laces
Hot conditions due to sun exposure or weather conditions and also the use of lights can affect the quality of the smartphone battery. If exposed too often, this heat can damage various components inside your smartphone, including the battery that keeps overheating. Ideally you store or place your smartphone in a room with a normal temperature, away from sources of fire and direct light.
