Most of us have a laid back attitude when it comes to painting a picture about a full charge battery.
A faulty phone can cause a lot of inconvenience and disrupt the normal course of the day. Fortunately, there are reliable and tested tips to help you maintain your phone properly even when the temperature drops.
“During the cold season, smartphones may turn off, battery life is generally reduced, and screen sensitivity is reduced.
However, advance preparation and some sophisticated solutions will ensure that your smartphone works efficiently even on the coldest days, ”says Urte Idsinite, Huawei Product Training Manager in Lithuania.
Expert shares 5 recommendations that will help protect your phone from winter inconveniences and extend the life of the device:
1. Keep it close to you
Most smartphone batteries contain lithium-ion, which can withstand temperatures of -5 to 35 degrees Celsius. Therefore, any low temperature will significantly affect the battery life and efficiency.
“Smartphones are the most dangerous when it’s freezing cold most of the time, so be sure to keep your phone in good condition first. In adverse weather, it is important to do your best not to freeze your smartphone.
So, it’s worth keeping the smartphone as close to the body as possible, not in a handbag or backpack – in the pocket of your pants or jacket. Says Edessinite.
2. Use only when needed
If you’re willing to walk for a long time at temperatures below zero and you know you are not using your smartphone at that time, it is best to turn it off completely.
“On the other hand, if you want to use your phone, make sure it uses as much battery power as possible, make sure you close power-consuming apps, turn off location services (GPS), and turn on power save mode. When unplugging your phone, use it behind the wind.
Also, try to exploit the potential of other technologies. For example, if you have to make frequent phone calls outside, consider buying a wireless headset or smartwatch, which will prevent you from taking the phone out of your pocket unnecessarily. ” Edsinite is recommended.
3. Pay attention to protection
If it is necessary to switch off the phone during the cold season, it is important to take care of the proper protection of the smartphone. One of the most effective solutions is protection cases that help retain heat.
“High quality, water resistant case completely encloses the phone and protects it from direct contact with cold weather. If you accidentally throw the unit out of the damp snow or ice. Therefore, a protected case during the cold season is highly recommended because it not only keeps you cool but also protects you from possible external damage, ”he said. Says Edujunite.
4. Do not rush to charge
Even if you take all the precautions, your phone is still discharged – do not rush to charge it when you get home.
“The battery life of modern mobile phones stands out for its longevity: for example, the new Huawei Nova 9 has a 4300 mAh battery that allows the smartphone to be recharged in a matter of minutes.
However, when you return to a warm room, do not rush to charge the phone even if it is discharged – first let the device warm up a bit. Even an extra 30 minutes can prevent the battery from condensing, which can permanently damage the device’s battery. Edginite advises.
5. Learn from other mistakes
One of the most common repair errors on your smartphone is leaving this device in the cold in a car. Switched cars cool very quickly in cold weather, which can permanently destroy smartphone components permanently at low temperatures. However, if you have to leave your phone at work, be sure to disconnect it from the charger.
