There are several obvious reasons why a phone battery dies, including failure to charge your phone until it is fully charged, or using up all its battery juice in a 4-hour phone conversation or online video-streaming binge. There are various other reasons why a phone can begin to experience obnoxious battery issues and complications on a regular basis. Continue reading to learn more about phone batteries and the best method for getting rid of a problematic cell phone.

Dead Cell Phone Battery Problems

Chances are your cell phone battery is made of lithium-ion like most standard mobile phone batteries. These tend to have an average lifespan of two to three years and typically maintain a charge for two to three days at a time. If your cell phone is losing its charge too fast, or not charging up all the way, there could be several reasons why.

Here are some common causes of dying phone batteries:

• Bluetooth App Remains On At All Times
• Multiple Applications Running At Once
• Vibration Settings Rather Than Sound for Alerts and Ringtones
• Overextended Roaming From Traveling or Locating Signals
• Over-Charging a Phone
• Extinguishing All Battery Before Recharging It
• Screen Brightness Set Too High
• Extensive Internet Browsing or Email Activity
• Overexposure to Heat, Cold, or Moisture

Most often, low power is the reoccurring complaint from cell phone owners with battery issues. Just remember that running several applications all at once (Bluetooth, internet browsing, video streaming, text messaging, etc.) uses up a phone’s charge very quickly. If you want your phone battery to last longer, set down your device and allow it to rest a little bit in between uses, or simply cut back on overusing. You can also try to clean up your phone’s storage by eliminating apps you no longer use or need. Furthermore, do not let your phone lose all its power before recharging it, and do not keep your phone charger connected for more than it needs. If you believe there is a malfunction with your phone battery, or it may be broken, it is time to look for a new phone.
