Why You Shouldn’t Discharge Your Smartphone Below 20%: Here’s What Happens to Your Battery

Most users put their smartphone on charge after a beep sounds, indicating that the battery level has dropped to the 15 percent mark.

And some gadget owners are completely accustomed to using the charger only after the battery is completely discharged.

Both approaches are wrong. It turns out that the cell phone battery should be discharged below 20 percent as rarely as possible.

The fact is that the battery is badly affected by a very low level of charge. By the way, very high – too.

Consequence of battery discharge below 20%

The owner of a smartphone should remember the following: each battery is designed for several hundred charge / discharge cycles.

Further, the battery capacity decreases. As a result, the battery begins to hold a charge worse, and then completely ceases to function.

If you have time to put the mobile phone on charge before the charge level drops below 20 percent and do not charge the smartphone above 80-90 percent, then only one charge / discharge cycle will be used.

But if the user connects the charger to the gadget when the battery has been discharged to 15, 10, 5 or even 0 percent, then two cycles will be spent.

In other words, if you put your smartphone on charge late, then the load on the battery will be high.
