Did you observe that your smartphone’s battery is dying quicker than it should be? Are you disappointed in this magic that although your phone shows at least 20 percent power, it quickly goes off without notice? Today we are going to explain to you the ultimate reason for this problem along with some solutions to fix this.
Whatever phone you using, the battery percentage at the edge of your screen is just an estimation. There is no built-in sensor placed inside the battery. Instead, algorithms are created to measure the rate of battery usage based upon the voltage it is emitting. This process is just like if you are measuring the water in a container by estimating the total amount of water and the rate of water flowing out from a crack in the side or a tap.
Although this method is rather handy in most of the cases, sadly, it is not a definite indicator of battery life. There are many factors that are left neglected by these algorithms, such as the type of battery, weather conditions, and apps being used on the phone, etc. This algorithm becomes more incorrect and irrelevant when your phone becomes old. The crystals inside the battery are in not perfect working conditions, and some of them are even broken. This decreases the battery’s capacity while making the calculation algorithms even more incorrect.
Ther is one more reason could be that even after shutting off, your phone still needs some energy to do background functions, so it stores some of the battery energy for later use. Don’t ignore that it does need some power to shut down properly. The phone has many processes and apps going on in the background. It is essential that a phone closes down neatly after writing everything onto permanent storage or the cloud.
Some batteries also shut off quicker than the others because they are meant to do so. Depending on the cell makeup, tapping it to absolute zero prevents the battery from taking a charge. Shutting down “early” allows full charge to remain inside the battery while stopping it from being dead. Most batteries are programmed to recognize this and shut off the battery’s power before it approaches absolute zero.
Now that you know why this happens, the most reliable way to bypass this is to never let your battery dip into the red zone in the first place, particularly if your battery is already worn out. Try to carry a portable charger and power up your phone regularly to bypass this hassle. You can always begin low power mode in case of any problem or remove some of the power-hungry apps like Pokemon Go and Facebook. Try to use low power internet browsers like Safari instead of Chrome or Firefox. For dependant battery life, avoid exposing your phone to extreme cold or heat.
If you are stuck in the situation of the low battery which is about to die, don’t try to shut off your phone. Put your phone either on the airplane mode or power saver mode to conserve battery. Shutting it off, as stated above, still uses a lot of your phone battery, but placing it on airplane mode will consume the least and save your battery!
