The concept of a stressful situation is not the prerogative of sensitive living beings; to one degree or another, it is subject to any more or less complex system, which is exploited not quite correctly. Cadex specialists draw parallels between the functioning of the smartphone’s battery and the lifestyle of professional athletes.

It is not good to force the latter to run cross, interrupting a well-deserved rest after setting a new record, but to keep the athlete in the platoon, in a state of full readiness for hours on end is dangerous. Burn out, emotionally, and then physically. The same thing happens with batteries, with the difference that, unlike usual breakdowns, this “stress wear” is not visually identified.

Disconnect iPhone after fully charged
What happens when the charge level reaches 100% and the cable is still plugged in? What is called a “leaking charge” is launched – energy flows in tiny portions from the mains to the battery, compensating for those tiny losses that occur naturally. Consumption is minimal, but the whole system is in a state of high voltage, which adversely affects the chemical components.
A smartphone disconnected from charging goes into a different operating mode, which is more sparing for the power system. And if the battery is physically removed from the connector, the problem will be leveled. This can be compared with the complete relaxation of muscles after a hard day – no one smiles at the prospect of being ready for days and nights, so why torment the battery of your gadget?

No need to strive for 100% charge level
The closer to the peak value, the higher the load on the components of the lithium-ion system. The state is akin to that which a fighter feels before entering the ring – sheer benefit for the implementation of a key task, but no one in his right mind will make him fight with full return every day. Unless, of course, the goal is to destroy a well-functioning combat vehicle. Sparring and training, a measured load, to which both the athlete and the battery can be subjected constantly, is another matter.
Verdict: fully charge the smartphone’s battery only in case of real need, and in everyday reality try to keep the battery charge between 10% and 90%.

Optionally charge your iPhone battery at a time
Cadex calculated that the optimal recharge for most battery models is 10% recharge in one session. We have used up – put on recharge – removed after so many minutes – we use until the next drop in the level of 10% of the current. Not a very realistic scenario for the lion’s share of users, but it can be replaced with a simple scheme. Put your smartphone on a charge several times during the day, for a short time.
In addition to the non-obvious, but existing benefits for batteries, this will help you streamline your lifestyle, at least with regard to working with high technology. Namely:
- “Slave sockets” sit next to her for an hour — 10 minutes is enough for you;
- During the day, you always have a supply of energy in the battery for useful tasks;
- Resource-intensive functions, such as launching game hits or GPS, will not be launched spontaneously, but “on schedule”. Less temptation for stupid things and procrastination in the workplace.
- A pronounced cycle of “activity-rest” is not only for a smartphone, but also for its owner. Only under the “rest” here means the rejection of the gadget, activities without using it. Whether it’s writing a report or fussing with children.

Avoid overheating and overcooling iPhone
IPhone Li-ion batteries hate the cold and heat. Apple strongly recommends using your smartphone at temperatures between 0 and 35 ° C.
Make sure that the smartphone does not receive “heat stroke”, protect it from heating in direct sunlight. All this is a useful prevention of battery wear.
