My Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro freezes when I'm using it's charger adapter. Figured out that it freezes when the adapter is 2.0V Hmm.

Can you reboost battery life?
Mohamed Raed Mahfoudhi (15 days ago)
Man I tried doing what you said. Charge your phone at 50% and keep it below 80%. This is my first time. I don't know, I feel like I'm loosing battery juice faster.

How many times can I charge my smartphone in a day Sir??
Ross Mackenzie (21 days ago)
I used to charge it through the day on the iPhone 5 and it completely fucked up the battery, maybe I done something else but I never realised if I did.

My Android phone battery is li polymer. Can I keep for like 5 minutes when it's 100% charge? Please let me know.. Will that give me longer baterry life? Please let me know..
the eabster (29 days ago)
You said the battery has so many charge cycles in it . if I let my battery get down to 50% and charging each time and take it off at 80. That allows me 30% of the battery .I would be charging my phone repeatedly each day. Each time I plug my phone in is considered a charge cycle correct? Then again if I plug it in every time it gets down to 50% and pull it off when it's 80% that's a shit ton of charge cycles per day. Maybe I'm just not understanding. unless that's not considered a charge cycle. But I thought a charge cycle was when you charge your phone? Videos a year old if you don't get time to get back to this question I understood thanks for your video
the eabster Based on what I read around the internet, a cycle is something from low battery warning(0%-15%)-(100%). 50-80% kinda lessen the stress the battery would take from long hours of charging unlike 15-100.

When should i charge the phone ? Lowest battery % ?
Joren Dalogdog (12 days ago)
After Death if you want more, you may want to visit this very informative site. A group of researchers and experts heavily specialized on batteries. :) batteryuniversity.com
Joren Dalogdog (12 days ago)
You're welcome! Just bought my latest phone last December and I had sessions of charging that I've been used to (get low at least 20 then fully charge) for the first week. I wanted to know how to take good care of smartphone batteries wisely especially when it's just newly bought. After weeks of research and applying them carefully in experience, I was really satisfied of the results. 'til today I'm really very strict to how I should charge my phone.
After Death (12 days ago)
Joren Dalogdog tysm man! 👊
Joren Dalogdog (12 days ago)
After Death maintain at least 40% and charge to 80%. Li-ion batteries do not need to be full charged. Partial charges are better. :)

i charge my battey from 20% to 95% to calibrate the battery because my battery is non removable..
Javier Solano (1 month ago)
FUCK I RECENTLY GOT AN IPHONE . I thought going from 20% to 100% was the best way, lmao I feel so stupid. Thank you
Jan Slavotínek (2 months ago)
keeping battery between 50% and 80% ? Isnt that using a recharge cycle when i charge from 50 to 80 ? And obviously i will do that often so i will waste my cycles faster? Thats not good is it?
Joren Dalogdog (12 days ago)
The reason why it is better to let the current battery state to both extreme points is that it wears out the battery faster. By doing so, the lithium batteries we have in our smartphone will only last for 300 to 500 cycles until the battery capacity decreases by 30%. What I'd also like to say is that the battery capacity decrease is inevitable as we use our phone but we can reduce the rate and extend its lifespan.
Joren Dalogdog (12 days ago)
Jan Slavotínek A normal li-ion batteries will only last for up to 300 to 500 full charge cycles and indeed you are right that every charging session is a charging cycle but partial charging are actually better than doing full discharge/charge cycles (0 to 100). The explanation here is that you try not to let your battery go to "extremes." A battery that is too low is an extreme and a battery having at least 90 or fully charged is also an extreme.

Took notes and took the case off before bed, fell trying to get up in the night, stepped on the cord and sent it flying and now it's cracked... ;(

CHUNKEY aw sorry :o
Scentmonk (2 months ago)
had a galaxy note 2 for 4 years now and always charge the battery from 5% back up to 100%, never had a problem.

My OCD always makes me charge the phone when it’s below 80%..I charge when driving ..at home I charge with a power bank on n off when it’s below 80%..
Marchel Aquino (2 months ago)
Is it okay to use powerbanks? or does it affect the battery badly?
south star (3 months ago)
From my experience, this is the worst way to charge your battery. I allow my battery to drop to 10% and then charge it full. I never interrupt that cycle. I intentionally overcharge my phone by an hour or so once every 30 days. I've gotten 3years out of it and have been a heavy user this past year. I know most people charge often and i rarely see their batteries lasting. Also having a lot of apps running in the background deplete battery.
purpleeggkyu (3 months ago)
How about charging with powerbank or in the car?
I have my S5 (2014) ever since and its working well except the battery :)
Mharlon Usana (3 months ago)
Seriously, the Manual should say how many hours to charge not an explanation of the battery dumbass! We know that its Lithium Ion, its a battery. How many hours is the question? This video doesn't even say the hours of charge, damn it!
Planet Strength (3 months ago)
Thanks for the video but I have one question. Why only charge to 80%? I understand that topping off the battery at 100% could decrease the life but why not to 99% instead of 80%?
BallroomBlitz (4 months ago)
So what should I do when my battery is 15% and i am outside? Turn it off?

How about charging a MacBook? Should I not let it go close to zero? Same rules for the iPhone apply?
Alyssa Newhouse (5 months ago)
The first tip was true because I let my iPod die all the way all the time and one day I charged it for like an hour and it never turned back on

Dayle (5 months ago)
I had just received my iPhone 7 plus on Tuesday and this video has helped me greatly as I am wanting to keep this phone for as long as i can. There is only one question I would like to ask you, and that is would the battery be harmed if it goes to the 20% warning that the iPhone notifies you of? Thank you.
Matthew Moniz (5 months ago)
You're welcome!
oo7 (5 months ago)
but when my teacher is teaching chemistry then I ask questions that we should not charge battery to 100% then he tell that no u should charge your battery 100% because if you do charge and discharge all time the battery life will decrease plz explain.

My battery mah is 1750 mah but an app show me it is 1000 mah .And also battery drain very fast .Can you tell me why it happen
Flighted (4 months ago)
Your battery has something called health and life. Battery health means how much charge of its original capacity it still holds. You must have had this phone for a few years
yay275 (6 months ago)
yhea you people need to get your facts right all of that is bad for your battery
dojo (7 months ago)
Nice advice but I have an iPad 3 that still gets 6-8 hours continual use from just completely draining and fully charging. I've also used while charging ( I know that's not the smartest thing to do), I don't think there is any real consensus unless Apple issued what you were reading off. I've watched this full video and have browsed eBay and still it's at 100%.

Hello everyone, i want someone to tell me what should i do with my new smartphone which i'm gonna buy it tomorrow. I mean what should i do with the battery.
Ken S. (8 months ago)
Well done video! Question: If I begin the charge at 50% then is it important to let it reach 100%? You mentioned keeping it between 50% - 80% is optimal. So is the preferred method to always keep it between that range?

thecollinzboy (1 year ago)
Only use Apple ligjtning cable and adapter and you should have no problem with your battery. Also only charge your phone when it gets below 10% an charge it up to 85-90% then it should be good

Peter Galbraith (1 year ago)
if the phone stops charging at 100% then it doesn't matter if you leave your case on.
Robert Taylor (1 year ago)
I think he meant the heat it produces as it charges but before it reaches 100%
FreshGaming123456 (1 year ago)
well i was surprized when i realized i i never let the battery get lower than 30% most of the time 60-80%
Joshua Welikala (1 year ago)
when i first got my phone i waited till it dropped to 0% and then i charged it .but i only did this once ,i know this had a negative effect on my battery but is this effect permanent?

I have a question okay so if my phone is not fully charged and I discharge it because I'm in a hurry. Does it harm the battery ?
ᴹᴬᴿᴷ (1 year ago)
ok so just to make sure, its better for me to keep charging my phone from 20-80% everyday rather than 20-100%? so when should i do a full cycle charge then, like once or twice a week?
Pinkman BreakingBad (9 months ago)
once a month

Miss p (1 year ago)
I charge my device ton100% when it's below 20%. Should I charge my device to 100% or should I charge to 80-90% ?
Cemetery Landscaper (1 year ago)
Iman Gianan ..yes it will affect the lifespan of your battery. never go below 30%. better yet keep it 40 to 80. maximum is 30 to 90. but 40/80 is best.
Iman Gianan (1 year ago)
Can I use my phone until 15-10% then charge it to 80%, will it affect my battery performance if I do that?
Cemetery Landscaper (1 year ago)
Miss p ..80-90
fwizel (1 year ago)
Say for example, I'm about to go to bed and my phone is at 60-80%. Is it still okay to charge it over night?
dynomax666 (9 months ago)
so my phone is plugged in to computer and is at 80%. should i leave it plugged in for the night or just pull it off and plug in through the day sometime?
Cemetery Landscaper (1 year ago)
fwizel ..if your phone has 60-80 then dont charge overnight. never charge over 90 if possible. keep it always below 90 or better yet 80

Boy have things changed. The trend is to have non-removable batteries not. (Forces people to upgrade) It's more important today to take care of the battery. I have still have my original Galaxy S, SIII and S4 phones. They make GREAT MP3 players and all features work over Wi-Fi.
