Learn the Truth About Cell Phone Battery Myths

As cell phones continue to rise in popularity, more and more features are being incorporated into the mobile devices. However, each of these new features may alter what one may come to expect from their battery life. The battery has been an item that has been subject to many myths over the past decade, and thus it is important to realize which of those myths are fact, and which are fiction.

One of the biggest questions surrounding cell batteries is that of longevity and memory. For the original users, the battery’s memory was of big concern. The battery had to be fully charged, but not over charged. If you overcharged or undercharged the battery, you put it at risk of having its memory altered, and thus lasting far less than expected in terms of duration.

Because of the past truths about cell phone batteries, consumers wonder if the manner in which they charge their phone today will impact its memory and longevity. However, cell phone batteries have since moved on from NiMH to LiIon. While the NiMH batteries were subject to memory altering, the LiIon batteries work in such a way that how one charges it does not affect its current performance. You may be asking now why your cell phone battery doesn’t hold its charge like it used to if there is no issue of memory altering. Well, the reality is that LiIon batteries do have an extended life span, which generally is between 350-700 charges. Hence, while it doesn’t matter now if you want to charge your battery 10 times/day for 5 minutes, it does matter over the long haul, as by doing that, you’ll run through your battery’s life span rather quickly.
