HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR PHONE'S BATTERY?

27th November 2020
"We are all concerned about our Smartphone's Battery life, its degradation and health."

Are you concerned about your battery life? Is it draining fast or does it shutdown by force? Does its temperature rise soon after you open gaming apps? Most of the Smartphone users, nowadays, are concerned about increasing their battery life, cause who wants to squander money on Smartphone every year because of battery problems? 

Here are 10 tips that will help you take care of your phone’s battery.

Understand your Battery Health

Our battery health degrades a little after every charging cycle. Charging cycle is the cycle in which your battery charges from 0% to 100%. So, if you charge up to 50% then it will be half a charging cycle. It is said that after 400 cycles the battery health degrades by 20% though in some cases it has been found that even after only 100 cycles the battery health degraded by 20%.

Thus, we must understand our battery health and try to reduce the charging cycle. The less we strain the battery by avoiding the high-brightness, extreme temperature, etc., lesser will be the charging cycle and longer will be the battery life.

Avoid extreme temperature

Extreme hot or extreme cold always has and will be the enemy of the battery health. Try to avoid extreme temperatures and keep the phone in normal temperature. Do not leave the phone in car when it’s boiling hot or when it’s freezing cold.

Avoid fast-charging and overcharging

All of us are in hurry to use our phone; so, we seek out for fastest charging charger. Well, fast-charging is most likely to strain your battery that leads to degradation in its health.

Also, it’s not healthy to charge your phone overnight or throughout the day even after it’s fully charged. If you plan on charging your phone overnight, then go with slower-charging chargers that won’t strain the battery.

Avoid draining the battery up to 0% and charging it all the way to 100% 

Try to avoid one full charging cycle as it strains the battery, and if possible, try to increase the battery charge by 50% in one charging cycle and not more than that. Experts recommend the Smartphone users to maintain their battery between 20% and 90% to avoid strain on the battery. 

Reduce the screen brightness 

Among all the apps and softwares in your phone, screen brightness drains the most of your battery. Try to reduce the brightness to the level in which neither your eyes nor the battery strains. Also, avoid auto-brightness as well. 

Reduce screen timeout/ Auto-lock

Most often, we leave our phones on and forget to turn the screen off. And, for the Smartphone having 2-5 minutes of default screen timeout, this reduces a lot of energy. So, try to reduce the screen timeout/ Auto-lock to save the battery life when you’re not using it. 

Apply Dark Theme

For the phones with OLED or AMOLED screen, use of dark theme can make a huge difference in saving the battery life. Dark theme uses less energy compared to bright theme. This tip can make huge difference in the battery life, especially for Android users

Restrict apps that waste battery

Restrict the unwanted notifications of the applications that are not required as they waste the battery. Also, restrict the applications from running in the background to avoid high battery drain. 

Use power-Saving modes 

Power-saving modes also helps to keep our battery healthy. Enabling power saving mode restricts the number of applications that can be used; as a result, you can use only the apps you require at the time without having the battery degraded by any other app. 

Use certified chargers only 

Chargers, having direct effect on the battery, can affect the battery life. Do not go after the cheap chargers and try to use the chargers of certified brands only to ensure no harm is made to the battery.

Top Ten Car Accessories

27th November 2020
"You will need these accessories as soon you buy a new car."

The following is the list of Car Accessories that we found best for the Nepali Market. 


 

1) Bluetooth Receiver

Most of the latest cars include inbuilt Bluetooth, but if your car is still living in the past, this little gadget can bring it back to the present. As it's powered by a rechargeable battery, you don't need to worry about a constant power source -the battery lasts about a week for normal usage. Simply plug the device into an aux port, make sure your media player is in aux mode and connect your device. It also contains a microphone to enable you to answer phone calls on the go. Enjoy wireless music and handsfree phone call service with this purchase.

2) Key Finder

Do you struggle to find your keys or wallet, especially when you are in a hurry? Well, worry no more! With this device, you no longer need to waste time trying to find your precious items. Simply attach the receivers into any four items, and when you need to find them, use the transmitter to hear them beep and blink. Transmitting distance is up to 40 meters. Although it feels a little cheap to the touch, it does its job, making sure you don't lose your valuables.

3) Trash Can

Knowing Nepalese people, when we typically have trash in the car it’s most probably going to be thrown out of the window or into the depths of the edge of your car seat. This product is a must-buy for every car owner as it keeps not only your car clean but the very roads you use daily. The bin can be conveniently hooked at the side of your door or the backside of your seat without taking up much space and can hold about 2-3 days worth of trash.

4) Back Seat Organizer

If you are always on the go and can't stand a mess, this product will organize the plethora of items cluttering your car. With hooks to hang onto the seat (compatible with any car), this product will allow you to store items such as umbrellas and tissues, and it even has a large compartment for emergency clothes. It can hold your tablets and phones, whilst protecting your back seat from scratches and spills. If you need a little more organization in your car we highly recommend this product.

 

 

5) Phone mount

Imagine driving around a busy road and hearing your phone ring in your pocket. Fumbling for your phone is a highly inconvenient and dangerous task whilst attempting to swerve through the chaotic city traffic. By attaching this phone mount onto the dashboard, you can at all times have easy access to your phone. Additionally, if you are unfamiliar with a particular destination, you can use popular maps services such as the one provided by Google to guide you and have easy access to your phone at all times.      

 

6) Mirror Holder HD Video Screen

There’s a big windshield for us to see through the front. But the procedure to back is always a headache with the two side and one center mirror. This is a product that fixes a screen on your central mirror and connects it to the camera drilled in the back of your car. It reduces our efforts of turning back again and again by simply putting the video of the rear end in the front screen. It also supports motion detection and gives you signals right away when you are about to hit a wall or if somebody comes towards the car.

 

 

7) Air Freshner

Smell is associated with attraction. You might have a shiny car and clean seat but it wouldn’t be enough unless it smells nice. The car parked under the hard sun tends to have a pungent smell with the heating of leather covers of the seat. A good air freshener would be a golden investment for your car. It will only look classy if it smells classy.

8) 

Owning a car is fine but protecting it from dust and dirt is a tedious thing to do. Plus, the sun fades the color of the car and makes it look older than it actually is. The birds who play target practice with your car and the caterpillars strolling around might be a part of nature, but not for your car. Cover your car with it and early in the morning, you wouldn’t have to deal with problems nature might cause for your car.

 

9) Tire Inflator

Imagine going on a long trip, far away on your four wheels. The weather is so pleasant and the song in your stereo complements it. But when a tire gets deflated, you can do nothing about it. Consider buying a tire inflator to get back on the track again. The car tires can’t be inflated with your mouth just like the balloons, plan ahead for your next road trip.

 

10) USB car phone charger

USB car phone chargers are the supplementary boon to the humankind and you can keep it on your car accessories list as it is one of the most used tool and in a budget. You can now unlimitedly listen to songs connecting your phone to the Bluetooth stereo, watch a movie and if the battery gets drained, there is a charger connecting directly to your car’s battery.

Graphene Battery coming soon

25th November 2020
"Graphene battery can have huge capacity with relatively smaller, slimmer battery packs and low weight"
Graphene Battery is considered the next major breakthrough in the battery technology. Lithium ion batteries are good but has many draw backs and due to phones getting slimmer and slimmer, battery capacity also has a direct impact. On the other hand graphene battery can have huge capacity with relatively smaller, slimmer battery packs and low weight. Graphene battery also has other advantages like faster charging and lower surface temperature.

Recent tweet from Evan Blass(@evleaks) reavealed that Samsung is in their final stage of development of its new Graphene Battery technology and plans to implement the technology next year or in 2021. @evleaks points out, devices with graphene batteries will be able to charge more quickly than current lithium-ion batteries. Some other possible advantages with graphene batteries include higher capacities, less weight, and lowered costs. Though Samsung has to develop techniques to increase battery capacity while lowering the cost.

If Samsung is successful in creating and implementing the technology, it is sure to take the company to number one spot in the smartphone industry.
