A smartphone’s battery is very important, it runs everything, and without a properly functioning battery, you might not enjoy all the features of the device. The simplest solution is to replace the battery altogether, but sometimes the problem may lie with the device itself, not the battery. Before you spring for a new battery check if you notice any of the following:
Lithium-ion batteries usually bulge when they have a problem, which is actually very common. This is caused by overheating, say you leave or use the device in direct sunlight for a long time. Also, use of third-party chargers which aren’t as effective may damage the battery.
The solution to these problems is straightforward, purchase a new battery and find a better charger. Just remember to buy an original, or else you will wind right back here.
Another common problem may have nothing to do with the battery itself, but instead the device’s calibration. This is usual especially after a system update, and many people complain about battery drain for this reason. Sometimes, too, the device may suddenly shut down, even when the battery percentage is above 0%. You only need to calibrate the device in this case, and here’s how:
It may seem pointless, but it’s an exercise to retrain your device on reading the battery’s capacity.
The importance of an appropriate charger cannot be overstated, and the wrong charger can even be disastrous. Lithium-ion batteries have been known to explode when overheated, and a low-voltage charger can destroy the battery over time. Therefore, it’s important to take good care of your battery and address any problems you find quickly.
