Caring for your batteries with proper charging

Anybody with a decent selection of personal devices will know the importance of keeping them charged. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting that pop up saying ‘connect to charger now’ when you’re in the middle of something, or perhaps a long way home.

In order to make the most of your smartphone, tablet or other device, it’s important to take care of its battery.

One prevalent concern is over-charging. The most modern smartphones tend to have systems in place that will prevent overcharging, but heat remains a problem. Heat can cause damage to lithium-ion batteries – which the bulk of modern smartphones contain.

Samsung, one of the biggest mobile phone manufacturers in the world, advises that a smartphone’s battery should ideally be kept between 40% and 80% at all times. Letting battery run too low can be detrimental they claim, while keeping your battery charging once it’s at full capacity isn’t great for it.

While overcharging can cause heat issues, it’s also a good idea generally to keep devices away from hot areas. For example, leaving it in direct sunlight when temperatures are high is a big no-no.

This is obviously more of a problem in the summer months, but it’s also advisable to not leave your phone or tablet on top of your microwave or radiator!

Essentially, it’s all about finding that perfect balance between not damaging your batteries, while still having all those great devices working as you want them to.
