Mobile phones run on batteries that are recharged by connecting your phone to an electrical socket when they are drained of power. The mobile phone batteries are square, flat, placed at the back of the mobile phone device and covered by a protective cover.
Due to the fact that our mobile phones are left on for most of the day, the battery is in almost constant use. Although the latest mobile phone models have a longer lasting battery life, these do not last forever. That is why it is important to identify the warning signs that indicate a battery needs to be replaced. (read more about the battery replacement troubleshooting guide article)
Follow the battery replacement troubleshooting guide below to diagnose and repair your cell phone’s battery.
Mobile Phone Battery Issues
When your mobile phone battery charge starts diminishing, many of your day to days tasks can be affected or even interrupted. Since in today’s world, people rely on their phones for so much more than just phone calls, a short life battery issue can be devastating. Sometimes, this problem would be a result of a battery damage or malfunction.
However, it could also be an issue of too much use and drain on the battery. This could also be a result of too many applications running in the background. On this regard, there are a few things that one can try to improve battery performance.
Troubleshooting Cell Phone Battery Problems
Changing certain ways of using your mobile phone and some settings can conserve the life of your mobile phone battery. Ideally, one should turn off location services, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi when these are not needed. These services drain the battery life quickly. The vibrate settings on your mobile phone also may drain quicker your battery. It uses more battery power than the ring tone alone.
Other features that might drain your battery quicker are the use of the camera and the internet (3G, 4G & 5G). If you want to save up on the battery then we strongly suggest to limit the use of these features.
One should also review and clean up the applications. If there are apps that you have installed but never actually use, uninstalling them can improve battery life.
Now this! You might have heard that you need to drain your cell phone’s battery all the way down to “train” it to hold a charge and improve it’s life spam; this is a MYTH!. This would only be true if one is using a very old phone with an old battery. Most current cell phones use lithium batteries that are designed to charge often. On the other hand, letting the battery get to 0% power can actually be harmful and you are risking being somewhere and not having the possibility to charge your phone. In that case, we suggest you check out our latest power banks
Another battery degrading factor is heat.; make sure you don’t leave it out in the sun, next to electronics that emit heat, or on the dashboard of your car (which might result in your car being broken into too). Your battery can possibly run slow too when it is too cold, so it’s best to avoid extreme temperatures.
