Mobile phone and laptop batteries are some of the most expensive batteries to replace. These batteries are also known as lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.
Many people are not aware that inadequate care and poor charging practices dramatically shorten the life of their lithium-ion batteries.
And the most important time to take care of Li-ion batteries is when you use or first purchase the battery, phone or laptop.
To help you extend and maximize the life of your laptop, mobile phone or other electronic devices that uses a lithium-ion battery (such as an electric razor).
I will teach you what makes a Li-ion battery age prematurely plus, tips, tricks, and essential maintenance information you need to know to get the most out of your Li-ion batteries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How does a lithium-ion battery work?
Answer: Lithium-ion batteries work based on the movement of ions between negative and positive electrodes. In theory, lithium-ion batteries should work forever. However, high temperatures and cycles reduce their life span over time.
Question: How to extend the life of lithium-ion batteries
Answer: Follow these tips to extend the life of your lithium-ion batteries:
- For brand new batteries, it is essential to fully charge them before using mobile phones, laptops, or other electronic devices. This way, the battery “learns” the proper level of charge.
- To make your lithium-ion battery last longer especially one that sees a lot of use, such as a laptop or mobile phone, it is better to charge it often for short periods (one to two hours) rather than charging it each time from an almost empty state.
- While short charges are best, it is essential to leave the battery fully discharged and then charge it all the way about once a month; this helps to maintain the good condition of the cell.
- It is very detrimental to a lithium-ion battery if you use the device while charging, this will cause the battery to overheat, reducing the life of a Li-ion battery.
- Use a charger with a lower nominal voltage if possible, this will charge more slowly, but at a lower temperature, which protects the battery.
- Watch our free presentation to learn how to bring old batteries back to life.
- Do not leave the battery in full sun or hot areas. This heat can shorten the life of the battery.
- If you do not use the battery for a while or if you store it, make sure that the battery is over 40% charged before you put it away. If Li-ion batteries are stored for a long time without charging, the battery may not be able to maintain a charge once it is used again.
By following these tips (especially if you use them from the time you first use your new battery, phone, laptop, or other electronic device with a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery), you will maximize battery life and prevent premature aging of the battery.
Question: What can you do if a battery dies or its performance suffers?
Answer: When a battery ages or dies prematurely, you can restore these old batteries to 100% working condition.
Question: Is there a method or training program that shows you how to refurbish or recondition your phone and laptop batteries?
Answer: Yes, you can learn how to do this using the EZ Battery Reconditioning Program. This program teaches you how to bring old cell phone, laptop, car, deep cycle, golf cart, marine and forklift batteries back to life (and many other types of batteries as well)!
Question: Is reconditioning your old batteries hard to do?
Answer: No, the methods of battery recycling are easy to use and will save you a lot of money on battery costs over their lifetime.
