5 bad habits that are ruining your phone battery

Have you noticed that a battery charge lasts you less than a day? We're sharing five mistakes you’re probably making that are damaging your phone's battery in the medium to long term.

Charge your device overnight 🌙
If you leave your phone plugged in all night, you overcharge it. This is not good for your battery, as it accelerates its wear and tear. Ideally, you should plug your phone until it's about 80% charged.


Let your device drop below 30% 🪫
If you often get the "low battery" notification on your phone, the following is for you. It's not recommended to let your battery drop below 30% as much as possible to avoid undercharging it. You're better off doing several small charges throughout the day than let your phone run out almost completely and then charging it for too long.


Keep your device turned on at all times 💡
We know it's hard not to be connected 24/7. However, to give your phone and its battery a rest, we recommend shutting it down for 30 minutes at least once a week. Restarting it helps prevent bugs and maintain optimal fluidity. 30 minutes a week is reasonable, isn't it? You can use that time to meditate!

Tan your device ☀️
Leaving your phone in the sun or covering it while it's charging causes it to overheat, which is particularly bad for the battery. The same advice applies to extremely cold temperatures. So keep your phone in comfortable temperatures.

No updates 🔄
Updates often include battery-saving optimizations. So don't wait too long and do them as soon as they're available.
