On the contrary, if your battery has a short life, you’ll be forced to recharge it more often than expected, which may lead to frustration. The causes of short battery life include but are not limited to improper use, improper charging, and improper storage. So how do you get your battery to last as long as possible? It’s the vice-versa. Let’s look at each of them:
1. Use correctly
The first thing you should know is that most batteries don’t last forever. They degrade over time. This means that they lose their capacity to hold a charge. This can further be accelerated by incorrect use. For example, in high heat conditions, excessive battery use, or even just sitting idle, and using the battery till it’s fully drained or “flat” can cause the battery to lose its ability to hold a charge. In addition, some devices draw more power from the battery when plugged into AC power than others. If you’re using a laptop on AC power while connected to a charger, this could drain the battery faster than normal.
2. Charge correctly
Charging a battery incorrectly can also shorten its lifespan. Incorrect charging behaviors include repeated attempts to refuse to fully charge the battery. This can happen because the battery isn’t getting charged properly. Some chargers may be set up to only charge a certain percentage of the way before stopping. This can result in a partially charged battery. Other times, a battery might not be fully charged due to a faulty charger. If this happens several times, you’ll be risking the life of your battery. Also, overcharging the battery can damage the battery life. Overcharging occurs when you let your battery remain connected to a charger long after it has been fully charged. On a similar note, charging your battery too quickly, using a high charge current could impair your battery’s life span. Use a charge current of not more than 20amps.
3. Store correctly
Storing a battery improperly can also shorten its lifespan significantly. Battery storage depends on two factors: temperature and humidity. Batteries work best when stored in a cool, dry place. If you live somewhere where temperatures fluctuate wildly, you may need to invest in a battery case. You can find these cases online or in stores like Best Buy. These cases keep your battery safe from extreme temperatures. If you live in a humid environment, you should store your battery inside a sealed plastic bag. Don’t leave your battery exposed to direct sunlight either. Direct sunlight can accelerate the degradation of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium battery manufacturer instructions found on the user manual are pretty rich in specific battery storage information.
In conclusion, to get the maximum service out of your battery, you must ensure that it is being used correctly, charged correctly, and stored correctly. Some actions might seem obvious, but we want to emphasize them again. Some are even about common sense.
