How adaptive charging works on Android

Activate the adaptive charging option to extend the battery life of your device.

Degradation of components is one of the most common problems we have with our devices. Some people call it planned obsolescence while others simply call it wear and tear. The battery is one of the most vulnerable components. Although a terminal can be charged once a day, it will eventually need to be charged several times daily. Android has now released adaptive charge for our Android devices. Android 4.2 has an adaptive charging feature.

Why does the battery become less efficient over time?

It is often obvious. The battery’s life expectancy is shorter, so the battery will eventually die. Battery life is the reason. batteries will lose their capacity over time and won’t last as well as they used to. A new battery has a life expectancy of approximately 100%. This ensures that our battery has its full potential.

The constant cycle of charging and discharging the phone’s battery will eat away at it. The battery will gradually lose its usefulness if it is constantly charged. Xiaomi phones offer their own optimized charging system. A phone that charges between 20% and 80% will last the longest, but it’s not always realistic.

We usually use the phone to charge it at night and then at bedtime, we wake up with 100% power. The battery is charged at night and kept on a 99-100% charge for several hours. The battery of a smartphone can store upto 80% of its useful life for 500 charge cycles. It all depends on how much use you give your phone. It is normal for the phone to start to decline if it is charged more than once per day. Adaptive charging is the answer to all our problems.

What is adaptive charging?

The adaptive load keeps the battery at 80% for most of the night. The battery will be charged up to 100% just before we get up. This allows to avoid the constant cycle of 99% and 100% that occurs during the night, thereby prolonging battery life. Google calls this technology “Adaptive Charging” in its Pixels.

Similar technology is also available from other manufacturers, such as Samsung’s “Adaptive Battery”. The name of the Google is used for iPhone and Xiaomi. Pixel 6 and 6 Pro optimise battery use. Adaptive charging uses our habits and alarms to determine the best time to charge 100% of the battery. If the battery is not fully charged upon getting up, then our device may need to take longer to learn our routines .

Optimizations that go too far

Although battery optimization is good in theory , it can be very difficult. Samsung is particularly guilty of going beyond the limits to maximize battery life. These actions can have a negative impact on the user experience with our terminals. These companies may make apps close, for instance, if we don’t use them. This can lead to missing notifications on our terminals, and a less enjoyable app experience. Most Android devices handle optimizations very well .

Companies are focusing on battery life to ensure that customers have the best experience possible. If we ask whether we should have enabled battery optimization on our terminals, the reply is a clear. The battery will be grateful long-term if there are no problems with the terminal that allows us to activate this functionality.
