Your smartphone uses a lithium-ion battery. It offers far improved experience than its predecessors from previous generations. Your smartphone includes advanced battery management software that allows you to experience cutting-edge features including fast charging, more available battery capacity, longer lifespan, all contributing to enhancing your battery experience.
Lithium-ion batteries have limited lifespans. Lithium-ion batteries need to be replaced after a certain duration of use. This aging process depends on many factors that may accelerate or reduce this degree of aging. Charging your smartphone in extreme temperatures (for example, directly in the sun) accelerates the chemical aging of the battery. Aging also depends on the total number of charge-discharge cycles.
Smartphone users notice battery aging as a gradual decrease in the amount of maximum charge capacity that the battery can hold. With aging, users experience a declining amount of battery use time. Battery performance is a simple measure that compares the maximum amount of charge that the battery can hold relative to when it was new.
Your battery management software includes state-of-the-art Adaptive Charging algorithms from Qnovo that operate in the background to monitor the battery’s performance and early signs of aging. By studying the state of battery health and anticipating future aging, it dynamically adjusts the rate and degree of charging to make your battery experience seamless. A well-maintained battery should age slowly to give you more available charge capacity over time.
