You’re Charging Your Smartphone The Wrong Way, And It Could Seriously Cost You Big Time.

In the not-too-distant past, we were able to go about our days without a 24/7 lifeline to Facebook, Pokemon Go, or the wikipedia page for Bloop. Yet, these days, most are all too familiar with the anxiety that comes from seeing your iPhone's battery hit the red. And the worst part? We could have been avoiding that anxiety all along by taking a few simple precautions.

With these simple tips, your phone's battery will live longer and you won't have to worry. Because sometimes, knowledge really is power.

It turns out that, according to Battery University, a site run by manufacturer Cadex, our cellphone's lithium-ion batteries are susceptible to stress (much like we are when our phones die). So they recommend a few tips to keep your phone's energy pumping!
For starters, don't keep your phone plugged in when it's fully charged.
Actually, don't even bother charging your phone to 100% at all.
It's better to plug your phone in periodically throughout the day, in small doses.
