Since we spend a lot of time with our phone in our hands every day, its battery runs out quickly. Interestingly, this is influenced not only by the frequency of using the mobile phone, but also by the way we charge it.

That's why experts recommend not waiting until your smartphone is completely discharged.This doesn't mean, however, that it's a good idea to charge your phone overnight.
