HOW TO CHARGE YOUR TECNO PHONE’S BATTERY PROPERLY

Here are some cool tips on how to improve charging your tecno smartphone .

 

Don’t charge battery from zero to 100%

The rule with Li-ion batteries is to keep them 50% or more most of the time. When it drops below 50% top it up a little if you can. A little a few times a day seems to be the optimum to aim for.

But don’t charge it all the way to 100%. It won’t be fatal to your battery if you do a full recharge – most of us are forced to do this every now and again in emergencies. But constantly doing a full recharge will shorten the battery’s lifespan.

So a good range to aim for when charging a Li-ion battery is from about 40% to 80% in one go. Try not to let the battery drop below 20%.

 

When I should do a full battery charge?

Experts recommend that you do a full zero to 100% battery recharge (a “charge cycle”) maybe once a month only. This recalibrates the battery – a bit like restarting your computer, or, for humans, going on holiday! The same goes for laptops, by the way.

 

Should I charge my phone overnight?

Most modern smartphones are clever enough to stop charging when full, so there isn’t a great risk in leaving your phone charging overnight. But some experts recommend you remove the phone from a case if charging for a long time, as a case could lead to overheating

 

Should I use fast battery charging?

Many Android phones have a feature that allows for fast charging. Even most of TECNO Phones have it.

These phones have special code usually located in a chip known as the Power Management IC (PMIC) that communicates with the charger you are using and requests that it send power at a higher voltage.

However, some phones don’t feature fast charging but their Qualcomm PMIC may be smart enough to recognize when you use a higher-amp charger (like the one you get with the TECNO Phantom 8, Phantom 6 plus, etc.), and that’s a good thing because fast charging will heat up that Li-ion battery and because it increased wear and tear.

For the same reason, don’t leave your phone in a hot car, on the beach or next to the oven. A hot battery will suffer long-term effects on its lifespan. And so will a super-cold one, so don’t leave your device in the freezer or out in the snow!

 

Can I use any charger?

Where possible use the charger that came with your phone, as it is sure to have the correct rating. Or make sure that a third-party charger is approved by your phone’s manufacturer. Cheap alternatives may harm your phone, and there have been several reported cases of cheap chargers actually catching on fire!

 

Storing battery tips

Don’t leave a Li-ion battery lying around too long at 0%. Try to leave it at around 40-50%. These batteries drain at about 5-10% a month when not in use. If you let the battery
