Since cell phones became a main facet in our lives there have been tons of different reports on how to properly charge your new device when you first get it out of the box. Some reports say that you need to charge the device fully before you turn it on, and some say to let it die completely. Some people recommend charging the device when it fully dies and to not charge it every night unless it is completely dead. With all this conflicting information, how do you know when to charge your device and if you’re doing damage to the battery?
Over the past years, our mobile devices have advanced well beyond our expectations. The rapid evolution from simple mobile phone to powerful mobile computing device has given rise to the Swiss Army Knife of technology — small enough to fit in your pocket, yet powerful enough to complete any task. While mobile technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, the batteries powering them have failed to keep up — leaving mobile users with few solutions.
