11 Ways to Make Your Phone’s Battery Last Longer

3. Don’t Completely Drain and Fully Charge Your Battery

There’s this common misconception that the best battery habit is to drain it completely and fully charge it. Many people believe batteries have memories, and calibrating them this way will make them work better.

But lithium-ion batteries are not made this way. Going from 0% to 100% stresses the battery and lowers its lifespan. The ideal thing to do is to charge your battery to 80% and not let it drop below 30% or 90% and 20%. You can always use a power bank when you are far away from electrical outlets. However, use them sparingly and make sure they are of the proper voltage and top quality.
