Charging your battery to 100% and letting it drop to 0% is bad for battery health
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery in your phone sends lithium-ion cells back and forth between the “positive” and the “negative” sides of your battery which creates energy that powers your device. However the movement of these cells back and forth also creates heat which eventually crystallises inside your battery, impeding the flow of battery cells back and forth and causing your device to put out less and less energy over time with each charge.
Ideally you want to keep your device’s state of charge away from the 0-20% or 80-100% range of charge. Regularly charging your battery to 100% and letting it drop to 0% is bad for battery health and accelerates battery degradation. Your phone won’t last as long between charges and will more quickly dip below 100% capacity.
Luckily, we’re here to help! Optimised Charging in the ARROE app can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged (or a customisable amount chosen by you) which can double the lifespan of your device batteries (or more!) and keep your phone performing optimally for longer.
