Always use the correct charger. This way you can be sure that your device is getting just the right amount of power. Too much power over a period will affect the life of the battery. Some non-name brand chargers are of poor quality and can do much more damage than they are worth.


Don’t let your device or charger overheat. Try and keep all charging equipment at room temperature wherever possible. Being exposed to especially high or low temperatures can damage the battery permanently.

Be careful. Dropping a battery could potentially cause damage to it, including causing them to leak dangerous chemicals.

Storage options. If you won’t be using your device for an extended period and plan on storing it, then most manufacturers advise to do this at room temperature and have it charged at around 50 percent in order to give your battery the best life possible.
