    Default When to reacharge the mobile battery?

    I mean what would be the ideal threshold to recharge your battery? Should we wait till the whole battery is exhausted so that we can recharge it further? Otherwise is it OK to recharge it at 50% usage or so?

    I hope it is some way related to the life of battery in the long run?

    I was just told that I do it wrong. i was told that we should never let our battery get below 20 percent. I think that is crap. My battery life has been just fine, and I charge it whenever I get a chance, and sometimes that is after 20 percent. He said that you cannot over charge your battery, which I know is false because my battery has been overheated so many times from overcharging, so I really don't believe what he said, but you may choose to.

    Whenever my phone's battery percentage goes below 15, I always get a notification to plug the connector to a socket. So, I always put my phone to charging as soon as it goes below 15%. I think that's the ideal threshold to recharge your phone's battery and, I would say never let your phone discharge and put it quickly to charging as soon as you get the "low battery" notification.

    I don't have a particular time to charge my battery, I just do it as and when I get the chance.

    Modern batteries in smartphones these days aren't affected by top up charges, and so with that in mind, even if your phone is on 90% but you get the chance to charge it then I usually do

    When you battery percentage is below 15%. Or whenever. Charging will not "destroy" you battery. I charge my battery when my percentage is 20%.
    My phone is on charger all day. I feel uncomfortable when my battery is low I can't work like that.

    with lithium batteries, you can charge whenever you feel like. there is no memory effect.

    Smartphone batteries are notorious for their short battery life, and so in a way the battery manufacturers had to try and do something to help the cause.

    People are still under the opinion that their phone batteries are just like they were 10 years ago, but the fact is the technology involved with the battery, is almost as impressive as the technology in the actual phones.

    I get an alert when my battery is at 15%. That is when I usually charge it. I know people who have put their phone on charge at 90% and it did not hurt it. So, in my opinion put it on charge when you feel you need to.

    Top up charging as and when you can won't hurt the battery in any way, in fact they're made to withstand that sort of charging as most smartphone batteries do run down quickly, so people will often charge them whenever they get the chance.

    I think this has turned into one of those urban myths that people can't seem to agree on. Some say that you should only charge your phone's battery once it's low, otherwise you'll shorten it's lifespan. Others say that it makes no difference. I always tend to charge my battery as soon as my phone notifies me that it's too low. I've noticed that my batteries do last quite long before needing replacement, therefore I'm probably doing it right.

    You are wrong. One user above says " with lithium batteries, you can charge whenever you feel like. there is no memory effect."

    That is 100% correct. So it depends on what type is your battery.

    Any battery has a fixed number of cycles. Once those cycles are completed, the battery starts deteriorating. Usually, all batteries have a minimum 1000 cycle life span. I don't know the threshold, from where the battery should be charged. All I know is, it's better to charge battery when it reaches 20%. Under that level, mobiles release more radiation.

    I agree with on the point that it is good to recharge the battery before complete exhaustion. It will increase its lifetime in due course of time. I read somewhere on net that it is better to recharge the battery once it is below 50%. But I don't know how credible the information is. I have an old Samsung touch phone which uses BADA OS and the battery is still up even after 7 years! But now it needs daily recharging.

    I am quite surprised to know that if the battery is below 20% it will release more radiation. Can you just elaborate what is the logic behind this phenomenon?

    @webworld I used the word "radiation" wrongly. I should've "significant heat". I don't know why, but every device I used , released more heat when the battery was at low level. Try calling when battery charge is @20% and check it. The effect of that heat is nothing short a low level radiation.

    Thanks for the clarification. May be the system is struggling to perform at low level of battery power or something like that. But when you are in low network area you tend to lose battery power within no time. I can hardly use my smartphone on some locations where there is very low signal strength. It will drain your battery like anything. So, instead I use a basic Samsung phone which has high battery backup even in adverse conditions.

    I wish if we have something like a solar enabled battery in mobile phones which can ensure good battery back at all times. It may be able to store power for night use too.

    @webworld I too wish for long battery backup mobiles. Solar enabled batteries would be a very good idea. This idea wasn't successful till now(though some companies tried), cause if the mobile is exposed to sunlight for battery charge, it effects the screen and also the circuit board. Electronic devices have certain range of temperature, in which they could work. But sun light temperature varies a lot.

    there are some solar powered battery packs available that has in built solar PV cells which can recharge the battery. then this can be using to recharge the phone.

    That is really good. Are you referring to a solar enabled power bank or a handset with in built solar panels? I am quite confused. I think it would be nice if an inbuilt solar charger is available in handsets which can keep on charging the battery and there will be no blackouts. Low battery backup will be history then.

    But I think the handset manufacturers are not keen to develop a device like that. May be because it will increase the size of the device. But I am sure with the latest developments in technology it is quite possible to develop a solar enabled phone without compromising on its compact size.

    most are basically powerbank with a small solar pv cell attached.
    but for those moving in remote areas for long time, there are also gadgets with larger external solar PV panels

    Every electronic thing (from a super computer to a transistor), there are two types available. Commercial grade and military grade. Even flashlights used by military are far more better than commercial one. Military grade equipment is designed to withstand a very rough usage, may it be high temperature or a freezing cold. Fortunately, some of their equipment is commercialized and are available for all. Of course, it'll be pricey but very good.

    Those gadgets with solar PV panels mentioned by @panchabhut are of military grade. We can't expect those to be like the normal gadgets(in size or comfortability). But, if you are in real necessity, then go for it.

    I usually have battery problems because of charging my phone too regularly. It is actually recommended that you wait for the phone to shutdown then charge it to 100% then turn it on again. Who listens to this? I have a bad habit of actually charging my phone while using it. This reduces my battery life a lot. But I have told you what you need to do.

    I would like to differ a bit on this. It is not wise to let your batter drain off completely and then charge it which will only shorten the life of battery. It has to happen before that. It is better in the range of 50 - 70% of usage level. Even in the case of laptops never let the battery exhaust completely because it will have adverse effects on your battery life. Moreover, it is not practical to let the battery use up completely before charging.

    But I agree on your point that using a device while charging is not advisable as it will delay the charging process. But basic things like texting is quite possible. But it is ideal to let it charge completely before using.

    I think the ideal time to charge the phone is 2 hours after you turned it off. I think you need to cool it down so your battery wont get bloated. Once you think your battery is low, just turned off your phone and let it cool down before you charge it.

    I never heard of this before. That means if I charge the battery when the device is hot, there is chances of battery getting bloated in the process, right? Then it can lead of major issues, even damage the device itself.

    You are right that it is better to charge the battery after switching off the device. It can charge up at an amazing speed. But I don't think this is quite possible every time as you will be cut out of communication during that time. I think it is better to carry a power bank with you while traveling and do not forget to charge the power bank itself at regular intervals.

    I've never consistently recharged my battery, sometimes I'd plug it in at 40%, and sometimes I'd let it die off before I recharge it. This may be a possible cause for my devices shocking battery life though, and I've never paid attention to when, and how long for I leave my device on charge for. I mainly charge my device during my sleep, so that it's ready for the day when I wake up, and I hope that leaving it on overnight doesn't damage it.

    I had been a victim of the bloated battery syndrome twice. It makes me realize how important it is to cool down your device before you charge it. If you are addicted to a game and want to play it continuously, buy a phone with AC adapter mode.

    What is AC adapter mode, I've never heard of it. I also suffered from bloated batter once, however it was due to me dropping my phone into water for about 30 seconds, luckily the device still works (apart from the camera, and sometimes some issues with the home button not working.) But the battery unfortunately swole and broke. Is it possible to fix a slightly water damaged phone by the way?

    AC adapter mode is a mode some Phones and tablets have where you can use it plugged without using the battery. Basically the gadget will run electricity from the charger instead of the battery. Not all phones have an AC adapter mode. Most laptops have AC adapter mode.

    I have read in a blog that was posted on Facebook about myths people believe with regards to our phones which includes charging our phones. According to the blog post, it does't matter if you charge your phone no matter how many percentage the battery is. The battery of smartphones today are not the same with the batteries back then. I agree with this because I often charge my phone even at 60-80% because I always want it full whenever I go out of the house.

    In regards to a water damaged phone, while the device might still work as it should, the phone will always be water damaged and when you come to sell it, any potential buyer will be able to tell and the price they're willing to pay will decrease.

    I do it sometimes especially when I have to go somewhere early in the morning. So it means my phone is charged overnight. I often do it with my tablet as well. Someone said it has no effect, but I just hope it really is.

    Modern day batteries, if the battery and device are both working properly, can't be overcharged, so leaving them overnight to charge shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    Over charging is not really a problem, charging while using is the problem. I know many people say it is harmless but majority of the repair guys say charging while playing games damages the battery.

    Thanks for stressing it. I used to be like that. Doing facebook while the phone is charging. But I remove it when someone calls. I think I should avoid using the phone while charginf from now on.

    The only time it can damage the device is if it starts to overheat. All devices have a safety feature now that shuts the device off if it gets too hot, but of course if that isn't working then it can be dangerous.

    That's right, almost all phones are equipped to cut the power as soon as it is fully charged. So, there is no harm in charging overnight. But it may consume some more electricity. But always ensure that your battery is not fully drained off, otherwise it can lessen your battery life to a great extent. Yes, charging it anytime when it reaches below 50% is ideal I think.

    Some people play games while charging the battery. That will put too much of pressure on the battery and device and can damage the battery for ever. Needless to say, it will take more time to charge the phone completely.

    That's what I realize because I feel my phone gets hot at times with prolonged use while it is charging. I think that's what I should avoid.

    It is a proven fact that using mobile while charging can reduce its battery life to a great extent. This is particularly true when we use it for power hungry activities like gaming. It is said that doing so can even lead to bloating of battery. But I think doing some basic operations like texting and calling do not make any difference. But it is ideal to leave it while charging.

    The most important thing is that a battery should never be allowed to drain off completely. It should be recharged as soon as it is about to exhaust.

    Thanks for the advice. I never let my phone get totally drained anyway. Meanwhile, when it is very close to draining like 1 or 2 percent remaining, would it be fine to just turn the phone off and will not affect the battery? Thanks for the future answer.

    You are welcome.

    As per experts you should not let your battery charge go down below 20%. After all it is impractical to wait till the battery reaches its critical level of only 2 to 3% of power. If you are in a hurry to go somewhere, chances are that you may not be able to charge it immediately and it will go dead on the go. So, it would be better to charge your device as soon as it is below 20%.

    Also ensure you got a good charger, otherwise it can damage your battery and sometimes the device as a whole.

    Yeah, if your original charger got broken, buy a charger of the same brand. Most 3rd party chargers are battery destroying. I do heard there are some good 3rd party chargers out there but I don't know what they are. I suddenly remember the Flight Stewardess who died of electricution after a cheap 3rd party charger.

    Oftentimes, especially when I am lazy, I let my charger go below 20. How about when using power banks, is it fine to use your phone? With regards to battery charger, I have an original one. I never tried to buy one which is sold in the streets.

    The battery charge your phone will be getting is a fake charge. It is not really charging at all. Your phone will get to the point where it will turn off even if your device says it is 100 percent charged. That is the damage your phone will be getting.

    If your device is running as it should, it will get warm but the sensors will never let it overheat so using whilst charging shouldn't be an issue were the heat is concerned.

    I am now learning from it. Good thing it is not yet damage. I am really thankful with the forums here. Earlier, I plugged my phone to charge and when I remembered this forum, I immediately left my phone charging.

    I have understood that the batteries in these times, it is advisable not fully charge nor allow it to fully discharge because inside contain chemicals that could be affected. There is a rule called "20%", which says that the battery should be charged up to 80% and not let it pass without download of 20%, in that range is recommended that this charge of your battery be, so that it is going to improve its life and functionality.

    But is it practical to charge only 60% of the battery at any given time? Nowadays most of the apps are power hungry and even a fully charged battery cannot stand for long. In that scenario, I am quite skeptical about 20-80 rules and it will be really a headache to recharge it quite frequently.

    I have been fully charging my mobile for the last 3 years and there are no issues till now. The power holding capacity is also good if it is in a good network area. But I never let it go down 20% of power.I think three years is a good period for a battery and it is still counting. I don't think if there is any visible issue in the battery performance till now.

    I think my habit with my phone like using while charging is taking its tool. My battery yesterday had discharged quite faster even setting the power saver.

    How old is your battery? If it is too old then it is quite usual to see some issues in battery backup capacity. Moreover, if you use it while charging it may corrupt its memory function which shows the actual status of battery power meter. It may be showing an incorrect graphics of a fully charged battery when it is not fully charged. I read somewhere that this is a common problem nowadays.

    I think if is old enough, it is better to go for a new battery. But if it can hold power for sometime you can still use it for some more time. This can also happen when too many applications keep on running in the background. Please ensure to deactivate all unnecessary applications so that you can stop Google play eating your battery power.

    It is just less than a year. Anyway, I deleted unnecessary applications and I noticed an improvement with its power. I am just irritated with Google Play or anything associated to Google as it doesn't only too much of my battery power but my phone storage as well.

    I'm also very annoyed at Google services, many of the apps by them which are installed on my phone are TOTSLLY unnecessary for me, and I never use them, however there is no way to disable/delete them, which is annoying.

    You are right! There are lots of pre-installed unnecessary apps. What's more annoying is you don't even know how it works and they are impossible to uninstall. Fortunately, some apps can be uninstalled so I did.

    Very true! The unnecessary preinstalled apps consume lots of charge and phone's storage. But then you can't do anything about them. Never update them! Try to keep your active applications as less as possible. Close unnecessary apps and charge your phone only when the battery status of the phone goes below 30%. Avoid frequent charging.

    Google play eats up a lot of battery power in its process to keep the applications updated. But we can keep this under control by deactivating most of the unnecessary applications I think.

    Nowadays it has become a trend to download whatever is freely available in Google Play Store. That will do more harm than good. On the one hand it can compromise your security as hackers can even intrude into Google store and on the other hand it may use up your battery even without your knowledge. I think if we use our phones judiciously most of the battery related issues could be resolved at our end itself.

    Instead of repeated recharging, try to keep a point at which you may recharge your battery, say 20%.

    I think the best way to optimise battery life is to remove bloatware apps that eat your battery even if you don't use them. Its only possible if you have a rooted handset and titatium back up installed. Anyways, greenify is another great way to extend battery life of your smartphone and its basically aimed for rooted devices.

    Some of the apps that are not uninstall-able, I just disable them. It is still there but at least, it maximized my phone storage. Some Google stuff there though, I have no idea about its functions.

    I know, there is an app called kleek and I don't know anyone who uses it, I don't know how to disable them, I don't think my android has that option.

    I never heard of that app. Still, if you use that app, it eats some of your storage too. Just like Clean Master, it eats some of your storage. I am not even sure if Clean Master really works as everytime I check my storage after cleaning, it is still the same.
