Is It Bad To Charge Your Phone Multiple Times in a Day?


You may be unwittingly diminishing the battery life of your phone without even realizing it. Even only a few years ago, modern phone batteries worked very differently from conventional phone batteries. Following the outdated ways may shorten the life of your phone's battery. This leads to the topic of how many times you should charge your phone every day.

Despite popular belief, charging your phone numerous times a day is a good idea. Li-ion batteries do not need to be fully recharged since the high voltage required puts the battery under additional stress. The greatest approach to extending the life of your battery is to charge it frequently and briefly

What happens when you charge your phone multiple times in a day?

Lithium-ion batteries, which do not obey the same laws as regular batteries, are used in practically all phones nowadays. The number of charges your phone receives in a day will not affect its battery health. However, the number of discharges it experiences throughout its lifetime will have an impact on its battery health. Each discharge uses one charge cycle from your phone's battery; once your phone's battery falls below 20%, you've lost one charge cycle. Typically, phone batteries last 300-500 charge cycles before needing to be changed. With each charge cycle, it gets closer to deterioration.  

Internal structure changes are irreversible in the cycle of the battery. During normal use, the lithium count gradually decreases as more and more become lodged on the anode; they form a limiting layer (known as the solid electrolyte interface) that grows and raises the battery's internal resistance, lowering the battery capacity. The battery memory effect does not affect lithium batteries, which are used in the majority of current smartphones, but it does affect older nickel-based (NiMH and NiCd) batteries.

How often should you charge your phone during the day?

For longer battery life, you should charge your phone battery enough times to maintain a battery percentage of 30 per cent to 80 per cent. Dropping the battery below 20% will drain it, and charging it above 80% can put a strain on it, especially if you're using a fast charger. The average phone battery life is 24 hours. However, the number of charge cycles your battery has previously gone through, as well as the number of programs and software you have operating in the background, will determine this. The battery life of your phone will decrease with each charge cycle. The battery will need to be changed once it has reached its full charge cycle capacity.

When you should plug your phone into the charger?

The ideal standard is to maintain your battery between 30% and 90% charged most of the time. When it falls below 50%, top it up, but disconnect it before it reaches 100%. As a result, you might want to think twice about keeping it plugged in overnight. Lithium-ion battery ages quicker when the previous charge is increased from 80 to 100 per cent.

Lithium-ion batteries don't like it when their capacity falls below 20%. Instead, think of the additional 20% "at the bottom" as a buffer for busy days, but start charging when the Low Battery level alert shows on weekdays. Avoid getting a poor battery percentage, but likewise, avoid getting a high one. In short, Experts advise keeping the battery charge between 20 and 80 per cent. To charge the battery above 80 per cent, a voltage of higher than 3.75V is necessary, depending on the phone. Excessive voltages might cause the device to overheat, which can lead to battery degradation.
