15 Mistakes That Shorten The Life Of Your Phone

Recharge Phones More Often

Modern lithium-ion batteries have no memory. This means that there is no retention of when how much of a phone’s battery gets charged. Most manufacturers estimate that the battery can cycle through anywhere between 400 and 600 charge cycles. However, each time you plug in the phone to charge, you are engaging in a new cycle.

Therefore, you gain more out of charging your phone more frequently, but only when the battery indicator is low (between 10% and 20% ideally). This actually affects your phone battery’s life cycles quite a bit, boosting it to as much as 1000 to 1100 cycles.
