As cell phone functions are activated (GPS, bluetooth, data, sync) the battery level starts to drop. And depending on the equipment, the charging time can vary between one and three hours.
In this note, five recommendations to keep in mind to make your smartphone battery last longer,
.Each lithium ion battery comes with a fixed number of charge cycles, that is, the number of times it can go from zero to one hundred. On average, a phone has a lifespan of between 500 and 700 charge cycles. But that doesn’t mean it can be plugged in 500 times.
The key is not to let it be completely emptied but to spread it out over several short sections. If it is maintained between 40% and 80% throughout the day, the time that those 500 charges will last will be extended.
Nothing happens to the battery if the cell phone is at 40% and it is recharged. In fact, it is best to always keep the charge at a medium level, between 50 and 70%, especially in cases where the appliance is turned off in a drawer for a long time.

Just download the phone until it turns off when you want to calibrate the battery. Completely depleting the charge not only suspends communication (data and Wi-Fi) but is also not recommended for the physical components of the battery.
The modality of going to sleep and leaving the equipment plugged in is widespread because it is very practical. Most current phones has an autonomy of 20 hours and takes about 3 hours to get from zero to one hundred.
The question many are asking is whether this may pose a risk. The truth is that both the chargers and the phones themselves have an intelligent charging system that stops charging when it reaches the maximum, precisely so as not to spoil the battery.
Therefore, if one leaves the mobile plugged in all night to have it 100% first thing in the morning, it will not pose any risk.
With the passage of loads, the cable that comes with the equipment breaks down. In these cases, it is not necessary to buy the whole set but many times, It is enough to replace the cable that, due to internal cuts, is what usually fails.

If one has to replace the charger, never buy a generic or too cheap one in a bazaar. The indicated thing is to do it in a house specialized in electronics.
Each manufacturer uses a different wattage and amperage to get the best charge. The unofficial ones may take a long time or not be as effective as the originals.
Instead, it is possible take advantage of cables from other equipment that were manufactured by the same mobile brand, since one ensures that they comply with the appropriate security measures.
Not go down to zero
Many wait until the battery bottoms out to reconnect it to the computer or any electrical outlet. Using the battery until it reaches levels substantially below 5% or less and then recharging it can affect its performance.
To maximize the useful life the best solution is to charge it more often before it reaches low levels and you are too exhausted.
