Make Mobile Phone Batteries Last Longer

By: Sharon Samraj

There is certainly nothing more irksome than having the cell phone die out when you are midway in an important conversation. Almost all users of mobile phones have had this experience. The tiny battery indicator appears to be on full charge but then suddenly drops off the display without any forewarning. We do find that some cell phone batteries last much longer than others. The only possible reason for this must be how you care for and maintain your battery. We have to learn from those whose battery live longer their secret technique.
It is quite likely that all batteries are as different as the phones they come with. But there should not be seriously different when it comes to the power they supply. It is reported that an average life expectancy a well-maintained cell phone battery can be range between 350-400 full charge cycles. In other words, if you find it necessary to re-charge your mobile daily, then you should expect to get anything from 12 to 14 months of effective use. After this time you should reasonably expect to see the battery deteriorate and lose its power faster over time. Much depends how frequently you use your mobile. If you use your mobile less often and therefore only need to recharge it every 2 or 3 days, then you could see the life or your battery last even beyond two years.
The assured way to get the most out of your cell phone battery is to adhere strictly to the manufacturers charging instructions.

If you disregard the instructions, then you can only have a shorter life expectancy of your battery. Besides, the battery will also lose charge much quicker. So remember to scrupulously follow the initial charging instructions as they are contained in the user manual. Usually the manufacturers recommend you to allow the battery to completely lose all of its charge before the first recharge.?
Sharp changes in temperature can also reduce the life-span of your cell phone battery. Little realizing this fact, most people leave phone in the car during extreme weather conditions - both hot as well as cold weather. Yet another mistake most cell phone users commit is to leave their phone plugged into the car's charger at all times. What these people need to know is that every time the engine is restarted, the phone starts a charge cycle unnecessarily thus wasting a charge cycle. Please bear in mind that cell phone batteries only have a fixed number of charge cycles before they begin to wither away. But it should also be said that your battery could deteriorate if you do not charge it often enough.
If you are an occasional user, you may let it keep losing all of its charge as often as possible. If you are planning not to use your phone or you are going to an area where there is no signal, then the right thing is to turn off the phone. This is the most effective and simplest way of prolonging battery life. You should - even more so - switch off when you are in a roaming area as constant search for a signal depletes the battery faster. Also make sure to turn off the vibrate mode and use only the ring mode. The vibrate mode consumes a lot of power and rapidly drains the battery. Even the ring volume must be kept as low as possible.

Turn off your phone's rear light. The back light may make the phone easier to read but this light also uses battery power. If you switch off the light, your battery will surely last longer. Minimize the use of all fancy features. Avoid using the camera, internet and games. Accessing these features will result in a large drain on the battery. Bluetooth should also be turned off when not in use as it also drains your battery fast.
