How to get the longest life for a Lithium polymer battery?
With the improvement of people’s living standards, mobile devices such as notebook computers, tablet computers, digital cameras, navigators, mobile phones, and MP3s have become essential items for people’s lives. Lithium polymer batteries power these mobile devices, hence the battery life is the most concerned issue for people, and the maintenance of lithium batteries is the most critical.
Recently, an article on the battery website about lithium battery life proposed a new conclusion for lithium battery maintenance: the best maintenance method is light use, light discharge, light charge, which is related to the equipment used.
The higher the frequency and the higher the frequency, the faster the battery will be exhausted. The lower the degree of deep discharge of the lithium battery, the longer it will be used, and if possible, it recommended to avoid recurring full charge and discharge.
As far as the user is concerned, it is best to charge your lithium polymer battery with 10% and 20%. The remaining battery can be charged at 50%, but try to avoid the phone charging when the battery power level is low. Do not run out of battery power entirely. If you are away from home, try to use a larger battery or portable power.
Also, the temperature of the use environment has an impact on the life of the lithium polymer battery. Too high (30 ° C) or too low heat will cause loss of lithium battery life. For example, a laptop that often connected to an adapter power supply, it is best to remove the battery. Because the battery not fully charged after it fully discharged, the laptop does not pay attention to the bottom ventilation when it is in use. The situation will make the temperature overheat, which is the real nuisance affecting battery life. Of course, if there is a better use environment or cooling base, they can avoid the loss of unsaved data in the event of power failure.
The maintenance of lithium polymer batteries may have only a small effect on a single charge and discharge cycle, but after an extended period, there is a comparison. After one year or longer, the lithium-ion polymer battery will have a loss of battery capacity. In contrast, a well-maintained lithium battery will use for a longer time, and the loss situation can be much better.
