IS IT NECESSARY TO CHARGE A NEW SMARTPHONE FOR 8HOURS

 

After buying a new phone

We all have a question in mind

How many hours to charge this new smartphone

Smartphone shop vendor says to charge the new phone for 8 hours

Is it really necessary to charge a new smartphone for 8 hours

As it won’t take 8 hours to charge the newly bought smartphone

Then why these smartphone vendors are saying to charge the newly bought smartphone for 8 hours

There is a science behind this

Let’s see the science behind this

Actual topic 

A few decades before

Smartphones and other gadgets come with nickel-based batteries, that is nickel-cadmium battery or nickel hydrate battery

But now

It’s changed to lithium ion or lithium polymer battery

So we have got another question

Why the battery has changed from nickel-based batteries to lithium-based batteries

Because lithium-based batteries are better than nickel-based batteries

Let’s see why

Nickel-based battery has many disadvantages which are not there in the lithium-based battery

Let’s see that

In nickel-based batteries that is nickel cadmium or nickel hydrate battery, there is no provision to check whether the battery is fully charged or not

So these batteries are charged 8 hours or charged overnight

Now let’s see the second disadvantage of nickel-based batteries

Nickel based batteries have memory effect

Let’s explain this by using an example

So that even non-techy people could easily understand this

Consider you charge nickel-based batteries daily when it becomes 40% and charge till 89%

Then the nickel-based battery consider 40% as a lower point and 80% as the highest point

It will keep a memory for these lowest and highest points in it

Now let’s see the third disadvantage

The self-discharge rate in the nickel-based battery is higher as compared with the lithium-based battery

Another advantage of using lithium-based battery over the nickel-based battery is that lithium battery is slimmer than nickel-based battery

Now 99% of batteries in smartphones are lithium-based batteries

 

CONCLUSION

There is no need of charging a new smartphone for 8 hours or overnight. It was only  true for nickel-based batteries

But now it’s not needed to charge 8hours,  Now more 99.99% of batteries comes with lithium-based batteries

Lithium-based batteries are only needed to charge until the battery becomes full

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
