We are supremely addicted to our phones, which is the main reason we can’t have enough of it and let go. If it was possible to have a never-ending battery system, millennials would go for it blindly. But sadly, our devices also need a break as much as we do from our work life, it needs to have its food and recharge themselves for another session.

So, when we put our device away for a break we tend to aim to get as high energy as possible and that might be harming it somewhere down the lane. Well as they say we love the ones we hurt, and this is not any different. Even though understand that it’s not humanly possible to keep a watch over your devices with your busy schedules, but your phone also needs some TLC in life.

When we let our devices boil away because of certain factors there are a lot of things that happen to our device battery, the major being Degradation. Though leaving your phone on charge or charging overnight might or might not degrade your lithium-ion battery but it still can be somewhere related to damage because the main reasons for damage could be:

  1. Charging cycles

All of the phone batteries have a specific number of charging cycles before they start to give up, on average these can be around 500 charge cycles with normal conditions. So, when we increase the number of times we charge in a day our battery starts to give up early which leads to the device becoming slow.


  1. Temperature

Temperature either very high or low hampers the performance of a battery. The low end of weather decreases the capacity whereas the high end makes the battery vulnerable to short-circuits. This rise or fall can be either in the surroundings or from the situation the device is in.


So, we recommend you to not worry about overcharging that much if you are using the correct accessory but to still take precautions for your battery to last longer. For tips to save battery life, check out our earlier blog.
