Does the smartphone have to be charged for 8-12 hours for the first time?

By  Joe Horner 2019-09-29 89747 0

Charging mobile phones is something we have to do every day, and how to protect the battery life of mobile phones is also an issue that has been discussed for decades. The material and technology of the battery are also constantly updated, and the matters needing attention in the charging of new mobile phones are also changing. So the problem is, super fast charging is becoming more and more popular. What do you need to pay attention to now to charge new phones? Does the first charge need to be filled with 8-12 hours?

Stop being superstitious for 8-12 hours charging

Now has long been the world of lithium batteries, so there is no "activation" problem, generally normal use of any time charging is a very reasonable way to use. Stop being superstitious about how many hours the new phone will be filled the first few times. A new smartphone lithium battery can be charged for about 2-4 hours, while a phone with super-fast charging can be filled within an hour. After charging to 100%, extend the charge for about 15 minutes.

There is no need to reduce the number of charges

In general, lithium batteries can charge and discharge hundreds of times, but there is a common misunderstanding, it is not that you plug in a charge plug even a charge and discharge times, then the battery is too fragile. A charge-discharge process is a process of running out of battery power and then filling it up, rather than plugging in the charger and unplugging it once.

The continuous deep charge and discharge of lithium-ion battery has an effect on the life of a lithium-ion battery, and the life data of hundreds of times are also measured under such extreme conditions. Under the condition of daily shallow charge and discharge, the life of a lithium-ion battery is actually quite long. So this also explains that some people maintain good habits, mobile phone batteries can be used for several years.

Lithium battery has no memory effect, can be charged at any time, in order to reduce the number of charges and deliberately run out of battery recharge, can not prolong the life of the battery, but has a negative impact on the life of the battery.

Try to avoid charging all night

Lithium batteries generally have safety protection circuits and a variety of safety devices to ensure that the battery circuits are automatically cut off when overcharging and discharging and short circuitry, so unless there is a quality problem, the battery will not have problems due to long periods of charging.

In the past, we used to plug our phones into the charger when we went to bed at night. That was because cell phones used to charge slowly. And with the emergence of super-fast charging, in fact, we can deliberately change this habit, with the use of as much as you like.

Try to use the authentic charger

In fact, compared with the general use habits, the most harmful to the mobile phone battery is the inferior charging accessories. The current of the charger with excellent quality is more stable and can play a good role in the protection of mobile phones and batteries.

Some people say that super-fast charging will cause damage to the battery, in fact, this kind of worry is also superfluous. It brings far more convenience than its disadvantages. As long as it is a genuine charger, there is generally no problem.

Will super-fast charging damage the battery?

Every fast charger phone is supported by a fast charger protocol, that is, "tailor-made", as long as there is no problem with the use of a shoddy charger.

There are many ways to protect mobile phone batteries, generally by controlling temperature and charging. Pay attention to the ambient temperature, there is no need to charge to 100% every time, and then use 0% to charge, which is harmful to the lithium battery.

A word summary: can be filled at any time, avoid overcharging, pay attention to avoid high temperature, the use of guaranteed safety equipment.
