There are many users including me who think the battery degrades its performance over a long time and the working capacity or the efficiency of the battery is reduced upon usage at a certain period. If you aren’t aware, a phone’s battery lifespan depends on the charge cycles rated by the manufacturers. if you own OnePlus smartphone and think the battery isn’t performing as it should, you can check your OnePlus smartphone’s battery health status using this easy guide.
When we talk about the battery lifespan on Android smartphones, a typical Li-ion battery should last roughly 2-3 years before it gets a performance impact. Assuming the charge cycles between 300 to 500 for your smartphone, the battery performance could get reduced by 15% to 20% if you surpass this cycle.
The charging habit defines the battery health, to keep the battery health in good condition, you need to charge the phone fully in a single charge when the battery reaches 20% or below (charge at least 80% for a healthy cycle). In addition, extreme use of the battery or heating of the battery also drops the efficiency to an extent over a longer period of time. There are also other factors that lower the battery life.
For example, with every full charge, the battery loses a charge cycle and since there’s a fixed charge cycle for the Li-ion batteries, it will reach a point where the battery let’s say 5,000 mAh will no longer operate at 5,000 mAh capacity but a little less.
