The best time to charge smartphone battery is at night when people are asleep as people are deeply addicted to their phones, but there has been a says goes that long time charging with has bad effect on the lifespan and capacity of batteries, and thus phones would be more likely to be damaged. Is that saying true?
An electronic product dismantling agency from California recently says that batteries would not be damaged by over time charging since all smartphones are equipped with lithium batteries, which have their own charge cycles.
The most important factor contributes to batteries damage is the frequency of charging. Most batteries could be charged for about 400 times, that is to say, users could use their smartphones without worrying about batteries for about one year and a half.
Another manufacturer on battery and charger accessories Anker has also confirmed long time charging is not a problem. They think that smartphone batteries keep aging all the time, so that charging all the time does not have any bad effect on batteries. What’s more, batteries are designed to avoid over charge, and this would ensure long lifespan of batteries.
Though charging process is safe and harmless to batteries, there’re still some tips on charging. Temperature matters the most while charging, high charging temperature will cause damage to other components of smartphones, and reduce their lifespan. Try to avoid operating on phones while charging, because operating while charging, especially play games, will increase temperature greatly.
Another problem to pay attention to is to take off your phone cases while charging, and that will help with heat dissipation, which is good to smartphones.
