If you get an iPad, HTC, Samsung, Sony, Nokia Lumia or any smartphones/pads, this post is for you. 

Nearly all smart devices are equipped with new type of batteries, lithium-ion batteries. This type of battery has a great future. The more it is charged, the more power it would hold. On the other hand, this type of battery can not put up with hunger very well. The more often the battery stays in low, the less power it would hold later.

This battery is very “human”, which means overeating and starving are both not good for its health. Depending on the devices, you need to keep the device plugged in 2 to 3 hours after it’s fully charged for the first time. This action will help the battery to measure, “ what it feels like to be fully charged,” so in the future the battery will know when it's fully charged. After that, the best time to charge the battery is when it downs between 45% to 35%, and once it is fully charged, unplug it right away.

If the battery is low, below 30%, you will find it takes much longer time to charge. It’s not a big deal, but just make sure you don’t do it too often.

If you really take seriously about the battery lifespan, you can do the “calibration” action once a month. Remember, you only should do this once a month. If you do this too often, it’s actually bad. First, once a month, you can use the battery all the way down, and this means use the devices until it shuts down automatically. This way we know the batteries are totally out. Now recharge the battery all the way up to 100%, and unplug it once it gets charged.  This action will help the battery calibrate the full charge.

Remember, doing the “calibration” action once a month or once a season is good, but if you don’t feel like doing it, it’s also fine. Just make sure not to let the battery go hungry too often.
