If there’s one constant complaint we hear from smartphone owners, it’d be battery life. Or the lack thereof.
Now that’s one topic that you’ll find Android and iOS users agreeing on. There’s a lot of hearsay floating around about what you should and should not be doing when you’re juicing up your phone’s lithium-ion battery.
We’re here to set the record straight for once and for all.
Lie #1: Charging your phone too many times will ruin its battery
Fact, it's not about the number of times you recharge the battery - it's how much the battery can hold.
A battery's charging cycle depends on the capacity, not the number of times it's been charged. If you charge 50% of a 2000mAh battery, it'll need to be charged for another 1000mAh before a cycle is complete.
That said, every battery has a finite life cycle. Which means there is a maximum number of charge cycles it can go through before it meets its eventual death. Typically, it’s a number in the thousands that shouldn’t affect you because you’ll definitely swap your phone for a newer model before you get to witness your battery’s demise.
Stay healthy: keep calm and charge your phone as and when it needs it.
