Make Your iPhone Battery Last Longer
Most of the mobile phones use litium-ion battery. The Apple made iPhone also uses a same standard and frequently rechargeable lithium-ion dry battery. In Apple ipod battery is not removable or replaceable. Therefore it is essential that a great care be taken to preserve battery condition in the best possible available way. Because battery cannot be replace by an ordinary technician so an expert can only replace the iPhone battery. Replacement of iPhone battery is an expensive affair; it normally cost $80 to 200 to get it replaced. A great care is needed to extend the life of iPhone battery to enjoy utility of it.
There are few basic guidelines, which help us to keep our battery safe. First and foremost rule to protect a battery is to keep it away from moistures environment. Do not drop it and lend in different people hands. Never keep the battery for overcharging and on exhaustive discharging condition. If there are any symptoms of malfunctioning of the iPhone, consult an expert without a self-fiddling. These batteries and sets are very sensitive and fragile, it is advised to handle the iPhone with a single hand.
An iPhone battery can be made durable by taking these precautions. A lithium ion battery is a standard and high quality battery, which can easily be made to be used for a few years if a proper care and precautions is taken. There is no such battery, which can last forever; it just means that a care makes battery to last longer. Heat is a plague for a lithium battery so it should be avoided in all conditions. Intense ionization takes place in the lithium battery and heat destroys its ability of ionization. Instructions are given in the iPhone booklet to avoid the continuous exposure of iPhone to the sunlight. The battery will be sufficiently hot to get destroyed in few hours.
There are the examples that in the after noon sun light has severely damaged iPhone battery. Leaving battery in the car exposed to sunlight can also damage the battery. Always make sure that standard charger supplied with the set charges iPhone battery. It will not only ensure you iPhone's warranty, but also keep the iPhone safe from damage. Lithium-ion batteries need to be charged with an accurate charging rate and smooth voltage without any interruptions. Local chargers won't provide the regulated voltage, which can slowly degrade the quality of the iPhone battery. Avoid charging iPhone battery in vehicle. These chargers are not accurate and charge the battery quickly, and it adversely affects the battery. Although Apple has developed few vehicle chargers, but these chargers are not as good as a charger provided with original equipment manufacturer. It's true; a little care makes an accident rare.
