In conditions of war and constant power cuts it is especially important for Ukrainians to have a charged cell phone. To keep your smartphone battery longer, you should remember the basic rules.
A low-quality charger can quickly damage the battery. Therefore, only original chargers should be used.

Using your smartphone while charging
Leave your gadget alone after you've put it on charge. Put off watching videos, social networking, or playing online games. If possible, don't even make phone calls during this period.
In winter, when you go indoors after the cold, you should not immediately put the gadget on charge. The temperature difference affects the battery. The same applies to overheating. It is better to wait until the smartphone warms up to room temperature.
