The battery of mobile devices are currently manufactured with the purpose of lasting between six to eight hours of continuous use; However, the large number of installed applications consume considerable cell phone power.

- What’s the point of that cylinder in your laptop charger? Its use will surprise you
Now, the main reason for this phenomenon is because the requirements of the applications to work on the phone are greater. However, there are four functions of the mobile device, especially those with an Android operating system, which if they are not turned off can drain the cell phone battery in a much faster way and are the following:
- Wi-Fi: when you leave the house, work, university and any other place, the best option will be to disable the Wi-Fi, since this tool consumes between 2% and 3% of the battery.
- Location: the best option to disable this tool is when users are at home, because it is important to keep it activated when leaving, in order to share the location to another person or track the device in case of being a victim of theft or loss of the device.
- Mobile data: keeping the Wi-Fi and mobile data activated at the same time can have great consequences on the battery of the phone, which is why it is essential that when connecting to a network, the best option is to turn off the cell phone data.
- Bluetooth: it is very normal for users to forget to disable Bluetooth after using it; since this tool consumes a total of 5% of the battery.
Habits that can damage the device’s battery
For a long time users have developed a habit on battery charging of these devices. Although in recent years technology has had a remarkable evolution, to the point that there are powerful fast charging systems.
However, there are a number of habits that can seriously damage the battery of the mobile device without people noticing and are the following:
- Charge the cell phone anywhere: few people know that if you leave the phone charging on top of an armchair, pillow or in an area that does not perspire, it can generate great consequences with the battery, since the temperature rises, thus creating major problems.
- Connect the phone when you sleep: leaving the device charging overnight, will cause it to degrade more quickly, since at the time of reaching 100% of the charge it will continue to run, which is why the useful life of the battery is spent.
- Constant use of wireless charging: this type of charging can be helpful on more than one occasion; However, its constant use can seriously affect the cell phone battery, because it has a less efficient charge and has a lower energy use.
- Leave the device in sunlight: Exposing the device to the sun’s rays can cause its temperature to rise to the limit not recommended, that heats it up more than necessary, which is why it will considerably affect the phone’s battery.
- Use the device in the charging process: this is one of the most common mistakes, since when using the mobile while charging it can lead to heating more than necessary, which can lead to harm the useful life of the phone.
How to charge the battery of the mobile device when the power goes out?
Turning to reversible charging technology
Currently, there are some smartphones that have the reverse charging function, thanks to this resource, a phone can transfer its energy to another device using a cable or with wireless charging technology.
With this option, the one can provide power for others cell phone and thus be able to notify people that someone is well or can make an emergency call.
Use an external battery
External batteries or ‘power banks’ are a very useful resource to charge several phones at times when there is no access to a source of electricity.
Nowadays there are different types of battery, which vary depending on the energy capacity they can store, this makes it possible to also charge the battery of a laptop PC or tablet.
