Our smartphone batteries are rubbish because they barely last a day - but that's Apples fault, right?
Actually, we're all at blame here - we've been charging them wrong this whole time!
Here are some tips to get the most out of your iPhone battery, and charge it the right way:
1. Take them off of charge when they reach 100%
According to Battery University, leaving your phone plugged in when it's fully charged, like you might overnight, is bad for the battery in the long run.
Once your smartphone has reached 100% charge, it gets "trickle charges" to keep it at 100% while plugged in. It keeps the battery in a high-stress, high-tension state, which wears down the chemistry within.
It turns out that the batteries in our smartphones are much happier when protected and charged through a phone charger case.
Using the world's slimmest phone charger case by Phinexi you can extend your battery life by 140% without causing your phone to look bulky, or feel awkward to touch.
Not only does this keep your smartphone's battery performing optimally for longer, but it also keeps it topped up throughout the day.
Plus, periodic top-ups also let you use features you might not normally use because they hog your battery life, like location-based features that use your smartphone's GPS antenna.
3. Don't let it get too hot.
Smartphone batteries are sensitive to heat. Which means your battery could be drained or even damaged if the phone gets to a high temperature.
