Cell phone batteries are an essential component of our everyday lives. Phone battery replacement is required eventually by everyone. Batteries power our devices and keep us connected to the world around us.
In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the chemicals, production, and lifespan of cell phone batteries. If you already know you need battery replacement, please visit an iFixYouri walk-in location.
What Type of Battery is in an iPhone?
The most common type of cell phone battery is the lithium-ion battery. This type powers Apple’s iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones. These batteries contain a number of different chemicals, including lithium cobalt oxide (LiCoO2), lithium manganese oxide (LiMn2O4), and lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). These chemicals allow the battery to store and release energy as needed to power our devices.
How Do They Make Smartphone Batteries?
The production of cell phone batteries is a complex process that involves multiple steps. First, raw materials, such as lithium and cobalt, are extracted from the earth. These materials are then processed and mixed together to create the active materials used in the battery. Next, the active materials are placed into a battery cell, which is then sealed and tested to ensure it is functioning properly.
When Will I Need Phone Battery Replacement?
The lifespan of a cell phone battery can vary depending on a number of factors, including the battery quality, its usage, and how it is cared for.
On average, a cell phone battery will last between 2-3 years. However, batteries can sometimes last for up to 5 years. Modern phones and their original charging blocks have circuitry that regulates the current, preventing unnecessary blasting of the battery with the current. For this reason, iFixYouri always recommends high-quality charging accessories like those for sale in our walk-in locations.
To prolong the life of your cell phone battery, avoid leaving it plugged in overnight, avoid extreme temperatures, and avoid using the phone while it is charging.
