    TEMPO.CO, London - Be smart at recharging your smartphone battery, as this might be a new knowledge for most people. Gizmondo’s technology expert Eric Limer revealed that charging your battery to 100 percent is not recommended, as is letting it fall to 0 percent. The ideal way of charging is keeping your battery not less than 40 percent and not more than 80 percent.

    As quoted from NY Daily News, the technology site Gizmodo reported on July 1 that letting your battery fall to 0 percent and recharging it to 100 percent is wrong. It would instead make your battery inefficient, prone to explosion, and possess less battery life. "Running the whole gamut on a regular basis won't make your battery explode or anything, but it will shorten its lifespan," writes Limer.

    According to Limer, recharging your new smartphone’s battery for tens of hours prior to using it is a myth. The theory only applies to nickel batteries, whereas nowadays smartphones use lithium-ion ones.
