Are you noticing that your cell phone battery is constantly dying even though you thought you charged it properly? If this is true, you may not be charging the battery in a way that can extend its life and unlock more charge. To unlock more charge, follow your manufacturer's charging instructions, only charge it twice a week, and take proper care of the battery.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Charge your cell phone's battery twice a week. If you charge your battery every day, the battery will last 12 to 15 months. However, if you only charge it a couple of times a week, you will unlock at least twice as much battery charge and have your battery lasting two to three years.

  2. 2

    Follow your cell phone manufacturer's charging instructions to unlock more battery charge. Most manufacturers will have you fully charge the battery for the first three charge cycles. They will also usually ask you to fully discharge the battery before recharging it again and to never leave it charging for more than 24 hours.

  3. 3

    Protect your cell phone battery by keeping it out of the heat and cold, avoiding having the battery sit dormant, keeping it clean and using only the options on the cell phone that you really need.
