If your smartphone's battery reading doesn't match up with your usage pattern, it might be time to calibrate it. Here's what you have to do.
The folks at How-To-Geek detailed a way of calibrating your phone's battery to get a more accurate picture of how much juice you still have left:
- Let your phone drain completely until it shuts down automatically and won't turn back on.
- Put your phone on charge without turning it on. Leave it until it's fully charged.
- Turn your phone back on and confirm that the battery bar shows that it's 100% charged.
- Unplug your phone. The battery should now be calibrated.
It's not an exact science and there are other ways of calibrating your phone battery, but the process above is pretty easy to follow.
Head over to How-To-Geek to find out more about battery calibration and how, despite what others have said, the process doesn't make your phone battery last longer.
