Having a healthy battery is probably amongst the biggest factor that would let you enjoy gaming on your phone... as playing videogames consume a lot of power. Here are the top 5 tips to prolong your device battery.

1 - Take off your phone cover if you are charging it overnight

Phones actually have the feature to automatically cut charging when the battery is filled up to stop the device from overheating. Heat is actually the real enemy in this situation - you should take off your phone cover so that the heat could be mitigated easier.

Overcharging is actually not as big of a problem

2 - Go for short charges

According to phone manufacturers, the sweet spots for lithium-ion batteries are 50 to 80%. You should charge your phone frequently for short durations throughout the day so that the charged ion would continue working - your battery life would be extended.
