Lithium Ion Batteries Are the Best

In the past 10 years there have been all kind of different types of mobile phone batteries. Just recently cell phone makers have switched to the Lithium Ion technology for today's cell phone batteries. We want to herald the Lithium Ion name and tell you why these are just hands down the best batteries to date!

A few years ago mobile phones used Nickel-Cadmium batteries that had a "memory" so to speak. What this means is that if you let you battery get to 50% of charge capacity and then charged it it would start to think that at 50% capacity it was totally empty. Many of us remember how quickly cell phone batteries appeared to die with the (Ni-Cad) battery. If you have a Nickel-Cadmium or a Nickel-Metal Hydride battery, make sure you let it run all the way down before charging to give it the correct memory parameters. Lithium Ion batteries have no "memory effect" whatsoever. This means you can charge your phone when the battery is at 80% or when it is completely dead without harming the battery.

These types of batteries also do not receive any damage if you use your phone while its charging. Older cell phones that used older types of batteries would damage the battery if used while charging. This simply is not the case anymore with the newer mobile phone batteries.

Another really great feature of Lithium batteries is their weight. We all remember the "brick" cell phones that were heavy. Today's cell phones are lighter than ever because of the new Lithium Ion battery. These newer batteries pack a lot of punch while requiring very little physical space. Because of this technology we have had technological advances such as the ipod and iphone. Even many Hybrid vehicles on the road run on this same Lithium Ion technology.

Even though the Lithium Ion is the best battery around there are still things that will drain it quickly. Leaving your phone on vibrate will drain your batter very fast as well as operating your phone on a 3g network. The back light of the screen of your mobile device also drains the battery reliably quickly. People that search the web or play games on their phone typically have much shorter battery life because they are draining the battery charge faster than most people.

If you are searching for a replacement battery or a backup, remember which battery is king. Please refer to your manufacturer's guide to make sure you replace your current battery with the exact Lithium Ion battery the manufacturer recommends.
