It is an undeniable fact that smartphones have facilitated our jobs since they came into our lives. However, there are a lot of issues regarding smartphones that are hard to fix. For example, the charging problem is still not fully resolved. This is why many of us have to carry our chargers with us wherever we go. However, in order not to fall into this situation, it is very important that we protect the battery health of our phones, and there are several different ways to do this.

How to Perform Battery Test in Android Operating System?

Android phones do not have a built-in way to check their battery health. However, there are free battery saver applications that you can use for this. You can download these apps from Google Play Store and check Android battery health. The apps generally recommend you to charge up to 80% as universally accepted. This ensures that your battery is both healthier and longer-lasting. The applications try to present you with data about the state of your battery and the way you use it.

The quickest and easiest way to look at battery health is to go directly from your device to the Settings > Battery tab. This battery measurement does not give you specific details, however, it will warn you if your battery needs maintenance.

You can also get a little more detailed information about your iPhone or iPad's battery status using the Console app, which comes preinstalled on all Macs. To do this, launch the Console app and plug your phone into your computer with a cable. After typing "battery health" in the search section, you can find details about the current battery level of your device, whether there is any battery problem or not.

What is Battery Calibration?

The Android operating system has a feature that monitors the phone battery capacity when it is full or empty. The compatibility of this feature with the battery is called battery calibration. This compatibility is ideal when you first purchase your device, but over time it deteriorates due to use and starts to display inaccurate data. For example, it causes your phone to turn off before your charge reaches 0%. To solve this problem, it is necessary to calibrate the battery.

How to Calibrate Battery?

You can follow these steps for battery calibration:

  • Use your phone until it runs out of battery and turns itself off.
  • Press the power button after it is turned off. The screen will seem to turn on but will turn off again. Repeat this process until no lights come on.
  • Plug your phone into the charger and charge it without turning it on until the display or LED indicator reaches 100 percent.
  • Unplug your charger and turn on your phone.
  • If the battery indicator does not show 100%, reconnect the charger while your phone is on and continue charging until the display reads 100%.
  • Unplug your phone and reboot. If it still shows 98% or 99%, plug it back in until it reads 100% on the screen.
  • After waiting for a while when your charge reaches 100%, remove your device from the charger and use it until your battery is completely empty.
  • Once your battery is dead and your phone is turned off, charge it once again without interruption.

If you face any issue regarding the battery, maybe you have to change it with a new one, but definitely an original one. To understand that a battery is original, you need to pay attention to some details:

  • In order to understand the differences between the fake and the original battery, it is necessary to pay attention to the writings on it. Some of the fake batteries do not have a place of production, and some of them even do not have an NFC antenna.
  • Another difference is the usage time. Original batteries have a longer life and charging time than fake batteries.
  • It does not experience sudden drops in the charge percentage during use in the original battery.
  • In addition, it is often possible to understand whether the battery is original or not from the hologram on the battery.
