  • The battery in a phone is the power source for everything inside the phone.

    The most common issues generally indicating a battery replacement is needed are:

    – device won't charge to 100%

    – device drops % of charging at random

    – device may heat up when in use, or on charge

    – device may run out of battery really quickly

    – device may smell toxic (like lithium ion)

    – device may not hold any charge at all

    – device will try boot up, but turn off after displaying apple symbol. We recommend replacing your phone battery about every year.

    The batteries are designed to last between 400 – 600 charge cycles and most aftermarket batteries go through about 50-100 charge cycles just during testing before you even receive the item. Phone batteries only take between 10 minutes to repair, depending on the model of phone.

    There are a few things that you can try to improve your battery performance.

    Troubleshooting Mobile Phone Battery Problems

    Changing certain habits and settings can conserve the life of your mobile phone battery.

    -Turn off location services, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi when you are not using them. These services drain the battery life quickly.

    -Only use the vibrate setting on your phone when necessary, as it uses more battery power than the ring tone alone.

    -Other battery-draining features are the camera and the internet, so evaluate and limit use of these features if necessary.

    Another thing you could do is review and clean up your apps. If there are apps that you have installed but never actually use, uninstalling them can improve battery life.

    Myths.

    You might have heard that you need to run your Mobile phone’s battery all the way down to “train” it to hold a charge; this is a myth. While this was true of older batteries, most current Mobile phones use lithium batteries that are designed to charge often. Letting the battery get to 0% power can actually be harmful.

    Heat... The mobile battery killer.

    Heat can cause the battery to degrade; make sure you don’t leave it on the dashboard of your car, out in the sun, or next to electronics that emit heat. However, your battery can also run slow because it is too cold, so it’s best to avoid extreme temperatures.
