Batteries are one of the most boring underrated topics ever…but do you know how to care for it properly?
We’ve come up with some answers to your questions!


Let it drain then charge?…

Battery memory effect is when batteries remember remaining charge if you don’t let them go all the way to zero. So a battery frequently charged from 20% to 80% might ‘forget’ about the 40% that’s left uncharged (0-20% and 80-100%). This is not the case for Li-ion batteries.
The rule with Li-ion batteries is to keep them 50% or more most of the time. When it drops below 50% this is when you should pop it on charge. But don’t charge it all the way to 100%. It won’t be fatal to your battery if you do a full recharge, but constantly doing a full recharge will eventually shorten the battery’s lifespan.

Should I let it charge overnight?

Most modern smartphones now are smart enough to recognize when it’s fully charged. So no, there’s no harm in charging your phone overnight however for safety reasons we would recommend taking your phone out of it’s case as phones do heat up when charging!

Genuine Chargers?

Using the charger that came with your smartphone is the best to use as it was designed specifically for the phone. However if the adapter that you use has the same output voltage, it should be safe to use.
