The Life of a Cell Phone Battery

Although landlines are a still a popular option for the home, the use and ownership of a cell phone has been almost a must in today's culture. While the cell phone started out as something that was big, bulky and with poor reception, today's models are extremely compact, colorful, and technology ridden. With the extra features often comes an extra need for more power therefore with each phone comes an equally impressive battery. 
Ah the battery. We forget about the cell phone battery until it goes dead or fails us. It is then we realize how each cell phone has its own unique battery. So what is it we should know about batteries?
With each unique battery are unique ways to care for them, charge them, etc. Types of phone batteries include: 

Lithium-ion Battery:  This particular type of battery is one of the newest in power technology.  On average, the lithium-ion is twenty-five percent lighter than other leading batteries.  If charged completely for the first three cycles of its life, the lithium-ion will last approximately ten percent longer than most other batteries.  The lithium-ion will general be of use for approximately two to three years. 
Also as with other batteries, overcharging the lithium-ion will ruin its performance, or minimize it in some cases.  To overcharge would be to charge the battery more than twenty-four hours, consecutively. This means, no leaving the cell phone on its charger for longer than this amount of time. 
Nickel Hydride Battery (NiMh):  The nickel hydride will generally provide twenty-five percent more power than the nickel cadmium battery.  This battery will require a complete empty charge, and a full re-charge, every four to five cycles.  This, in a way, clears the battery and gives it a fresh start.  Like most other batteries, it is never in your favor to charge the nickel hydride for more than twenty-four hours. Again, this can be complicated at first as one must remember to completely discharge their battery or let it run dead at least four to five times before recharging it. 
Nickel Cadmium Battery (NiCd):  The nickel cadmium is the oldest of cellular power sources.  These batteries will still perform on a positive level, although they are not sold as often as the above options.  The NiCd battery has not proven to be environmentally positive, as per its disposal inefficiency; although, the NiCd battery continues to be sold in stores today. 
The 'Memory Effect' can also alter the life of a cellular phone power source.  The 'memory effect' is a particular condition in which the performance of a battery is lessened due to partially charging a phone on a regular basis.  If this 'partial charge' is happening frequently, the battery tends to forget that it is capable of gaining power past a minimal point.  Eventually, the battery can only be charged for small amounts of power at a time.  This can happen to any type of battery, although some can withstand it more than others. 
There are several ways in which an individual can lessen the use of their battery without talking less.  Turning off your Bluetooth feature, lowering the screen brightness or turning the phone off when it is not in use can assist in prolonging battery life. 
How long will cellular batteries last? This can primarily depend on the type of battery you have in your phone and how well you, the owner, remembers to take care of it and its needs.
