The technology behind today's cell phones is remarkable. With the ability to talk, listen to music, take photos and download, upload and store huge amounts of data, there is virtually no limit to the access of information these devices provide.
The lifeline of these phones (as well as tablets, laptops and other mobile devices) in almost all cases are lithium-ion batteries. These tiny power sources have been effectively operating smartphones since their inception, and they are a remarkable improvement over previous cell phone batteries. Yet with the amount of power needed to keep our phones running countless programs and apps day in and day out, something has to give sooner or later; and it's usually the battery.
Here are some limitations, considerations and tips regarding cell phone batteries to help you get the highest performance and prolong your cell phone battery life:
If your smartphone is vital to your existence, be sure to take these simple steps toward maintaining your battery and getting the most out of its runtime.

While many people complain that li-ion batteries don't last long enough in their mobile devices, paying attention to how they are used and charged can make a huge difference in prolonging battery life.
