Li ion battery

 

Li-ion Batteries are indeed the most crucial hardware components, every Smartphone has one, and it is always NOT enough for the user's needs. Taking a good care of your battery is a very important matter as its capacity wears by time which affects other parts of your device.

 

In this tutorial here, we will provide you this Technical Smart Tips to improve your Battery's lifetime and improves its performance along a normal day usage.

How to Care for your Smartphone's battery the correct way:

 

1. Several partial charges are better than a full one

Well, just like in real life, several sprint sessions are better than a marathon. Lithium-ion batteries appreciate partial charging, for example from 30% to 60% or from 45% to 79%, as this keeps the battery's cells close to their ideal state for longer. This means that you have no excuse not to charge your phone several times a day if you can do so.

 

2. Avoid complete discharges

Okay, extremities are bad for your battery's health. Leaving it at maximum voltage for a long period of time is bad, but draining it all the way down to 0% is even worse. While modern batteries can't fully discharge (whatever you do, there's still a small amount of electricity that will remain unavailable to your phone's hungriness), hitting the rock bottom of your juicer means that some of the battery's cells will no longer be able to hold charge. And this is pretty bad.

 

3. Your phone's battery feels best at ~40%

There's a reason why the batteries of most phones come pre-charged between 40% and 50% - this is the ideal state of a battery as the voltage is neither too high, nor too low. First of all, this exact charge level does not stress the battery's cells, yet it still allows it to slowly discharge itself while waiting for the impatient user to provide a steady flow of electrical current.

 

4. Avoid high temperatures

High temperatures are bad for your battery. Your battery can lose up to 80% of its overall capacity if you store it at temperatures of 140F (60C) in a year, though we doubt that anyone will do so. At 77F (or 25C), your phone will lose less than 20% of its maximum capacity for one year.

 

5. Low temperatures are a no-no as well

If you need to store a battery (due to reasons unknown), make sure that you don't subject it to extremely low temperatures, as freezing deteriorates cells' ability to hold charge, similar to the way heat affects them.

 

6. Leaving your battery depleted for a long time will render it useless

Normally, your lithium-ion battery will be depleted if the voltage level falls down to roughly 3.0V/cell. If, however, the voltage inside the battery falls below 2.7V/cell, the battery's protective circuits will put into the so-called "sleep" mode, making it nonchargeable naturally, that's the worst case scenario. That's why it's advisable to always make sure that the battery is charged to some extent ideally,that'd be around 40%, as we already mentioned.

 

7. Lithium-ion batteries have a shelf life

Simply put, you shouldn't stock up on lithium-ion batteries regardless whether you use them or not, they slowly degrade over time and their maximum capacity deteriorate. Instead, buy a new battery immediately before you put it inside your device.

 


Odin 3

 

If you want to get the latest firmware updates on your Samsung Android device, you'll have to Flash the ROM manually. The best way to do this is using Odin 3 tool and in this Tutorial we will show you the safest way on How to flash a firmware update to your Samsung's Android device.

 

Odin

 

BEFORE YOU START!

 

- Fully recharge your Samsung device battery before engaging into flashing process.
- Prepare a Windows base OS computer or laptop, Odin flasher tool will not run on Mac and other OSX systems.
- Use the supplied USB data cable, a bad USB data cable caused a flashing errors. Believe me, I've faced it several times, if you get failed errors in Odin then you did not read this.
- Remove the external micro SD card if you have one, to avoid any failures and error during the flashing process. (Recommended for beginners, some rouge 3rd-party apps stored on SD card may also caused some problem)
- Closed any other running programs in your computer, this include Samsung's Kies too which basically blocks you from using Odin.

 


DOWNLOAD TOOLS:

 

youFirmware

 

- Download Odin v3.10 from HERE

 

- Download Latest Samsung KIES + USB Drivers from HERE

 

- Download Samsung USB Drivers ONLY from HERE

 

- Download Official Firmware for your device from YouFirmware

 


STEP 1: Run and configure Odin3 v3.10

odin 3

Hover your mouse to these three Odin check-boxes options, by default the "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" check-boxes are marked Checked. Just ensure the "Re-Partition" remains NOT-Checked.

 

Step 2: Boot your Device into Download Mode

download mode

Turn your Samsung device off, then Press the [Volume Down+Home+Power] buttons all together at the same time, HOLD them, then let them go until a warning screen prompted you to choose continue or cancel. Then Press the [Volume Up] button to continue and you will see a download mode screen on your device like in the photo above.

 

Step 3: Connect your Samsung device to the computer via the USB data cable

Once you connect your Samsung device with the USB cable you can see that Odin's ID:COM triangular bar turned to blueish color and shows you the USB port number of your Samsung device is using for connecting with your computer. The COM number will depend on which USB port assigned with your phones, it usually connects from 01 to 07. There is also a word that says "Added" in the log-cat box. If you ain't see any response, try to recheck the USB cable and re-install the USB Drivers.

 

Step 4: Load the Firmware into Odin

 

Click the Odin "AP button" then browse and select the firmwares file. Just make sure you already unzipped it and then browse to the folder where you downloaded your firmware, it should end with file description as "tar.md5".

For Example, if you are about to flash a Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F, the firmware should look something like this "G900FXXU1ANE2_G900FOXA1ANE2_HOME.tar.md5". Note that Firmware packages comes in different build version numbers and basically shows the device model number such "N900F" or "N925A" and so on.

After that, wait 1-10 seconds while it reads the MD5 checksum.

 

 

Step 5: Install the Firmware into your Device

 

Simply hit the "Start Button" Once both AP and CSC files filled with the right files, simply click that Odin's "START" button to begin flashing. Wait and watch the progress bar as it will show you the exact time how it completes the flashing and it takes a couple of minutes before the flashing finishes, you have a time to relax for a while.

 

 

Step 6: Wait until the Restoration Process completes!

 

When original firmware installation successfully completed, you'll noticed that Odin displays a word "PASS" in Green. This means the operation was a success. Then reboot your phone and you are done. Check the Notes below if you have any problems.

 

Important Notes:

 

• If you flashed a firmware and faced issues with your Wi-Fi connection, Make sure that "auto reboot" option in Odin3 is NOT checked (Step1) and wait until Odin says "PASS" (green text at the bottom right) then disconnect your device.

 

• Samsung KIES installation is required to get the Samsung USB driver, In case you don't want to install KIES OR you already have it but facing many issues with it on your syste... just install the Samsung USB drivers only from the links above.
