Avoid extreme temperatures, whenever possible. Do not overheat the battery by keeping your phone in the sun or near heated appliances. Additionally, avoid putting anything under the case (e.g., credit cards or pieces of paper), as it also contributes to overheating.© DepositPhotos
Keep the battery charge within a fixed range to prevent wearing it out. Charging up your phone in that 30 to 80 percent range keeps the voltage lower and prolongs the battery lifespan.
Do not charge your phone overnight, because then it might be plugged in for hours after it has reached 100 %, which will accelerate the aging process of lithium-ion smartphone batteries.© DepositPhotos
When deciding which phone to opt for, focus on the tasks you want it to perform. For example, if you are buying a phone for your child and know that they will often use it for playing games, it better to choose one with a more powerful battery.

It is best to use the original high-quality charger that came with your device. It is not difficult to identify a poor-quality charger: the adapter will become very hot, and the charging will take a long time.
Likewise, charging a new phone is not rocket science: there is no need to discharge the battery fully or charge it to 100 %.© DepositPhotos
