The rise of video apps, phone games and chatting apps makes life funnier and more convenient, yet it also brings battery crisis. Now battery durance and charging speed have become standards for phone users while choosing a smartphone. Vivo has always been dedicated in lengthening the battery life and makes charging faster, the release of Vivo NEX proves that.

The Battery of Vivo NEX

Vivo NEX is equipped with a large volume at 4000mAh, an impressive number which surpasses many smartphones in the market. Yet considering the almost full screen at size 6.59 inches, the time the battery lasts is still not long which is a mystery. As for the charging, Vivo NEX is accompanied with its 22W charger and Type-C port, which enables it to complete a full charge within one hour. Though it does not support wireless charging like Samsung S9 and iPhone X, its charging speed is impressive enough.

How to Extend Your Battery Life

We all want to obtain a phone which is both charging effective and battery durable. As the charging speed is fixed, we can do something about improving the life of battery. Here are some tips for you.

Firstly, get your phone prepared with a durable power bank. This is the most common way to strengthen the life of battery, and also, the most effective way. When choosing power banks, we need to consider two things, the output and the volume. Generally speaking, we prefer the product whose output and volume are high. Some products such as Zendure A8 QC, Zendure A6, Zendure A5 are satisfying products.

Zendure A8 QC is designed with a large volume of 26800mAh, which can extend your phone usage 7-9 times. There are four USB ports on the frame and Quick Charge is available. This monster takes only 10-12 hours to charge while using a QC3.0 charger. Together with its portable design, it is an outstanding product.

Zendure A6 goes with a satisfying volume at 20,100 mAh. Its special design lies in the two USB-C ports for input and output respectively. A perfect choice for USB-C enabled devices such as Vivo NEX, iPhone X, 13’’ MacBook Pro. It is able to extend Vivo NEX 5 times.

Zendure A5 is also a portable product which is perfect for traveling and business trip. Its capacity goes at 16750mAh, a reasonable data when connecting it to the weights of 11.4 oz. You can easily put it into the pocket and take it anywhere. By the way, Zendure A5 is designed with two output ports for alternative devices.

Have you ever experienced that when you fully charge a power bank for next trip, while due to some incidents, the trip is put off to the next month, however, when you finally take the power bank out you find that only 30 percent battery is left. This is quite annoying. Based upon this, Zendure promise that each of it’s A-series product is able to maintain up to 95% of its charge after six months without use.

Secondly, don’t use your phone while charging. Avoid using your phone while charging. This is called parasitic charging and this kind of charging can be damaging. According to Xolo’s statement, "Small amounts of usage load stop the battery from entering a full charging cycle, damaging the battery."

Thirdly, don’t let your phone overheat. Heat is perhaps the worst enemy of lithium-ion batteries. You should avoid putting your phone under the strong light for the sake of safety. Also, play games while charging is not advisable.

Fourthly, use the original charger. It is important to use only the original charger especially when your phone supports quick charging. According to Xolo, “Using higher current than specified reduces charge retention capacity of battery cells in the long run. Hence, using any third-party chargers for quick charging is a strict no.”

Don’t let the battery go down to zero if possible. The best charging time should be the moment when your phone goes to around 10 percent charge left. Also, when your phone achieves full charge, plug it off from the seat. Though it won’t hurt the battery, charging battery to 100 percent every day will increase the process of aging.

To sum up, Thanks to the fast charge technology, Vivo NEX is able to achieve full charge within one hour. Yet as high battery-consuming has become a common problem for smartphones, you are suggested to take actions to extend the battery life of your device.
