The topic is pretty self-explanatory. This article will give you a detailed instruction of how to double your phone’s battery at home without any fancy equipment that too for free! Basically, I am going to tell you how to use your household items to reduce the unnecessary wastes from the battery so that it lasts much longer. This trick is coherent with Android, iOS, and even Microsoft operating systems. So, let’s get to it.
Before going to the process let me explain how the modern battery works. Inside every cell phone, there is a battery that supplies power to all the components inside the cell. These components are connected to the battery via small wires called microcircuits. Now let me ask you a question. Do you like your phone slim that fits in your palm easily? Most of you undoubtedly said yes. Well for that exact reason, the phone companies try to use the bare minimal insulation possible in the circuit to keep it flat. However, this causes a slight problem. As we all learned from elementary school that any wire with a current going through it, will give off an electromagnetic field. Which means that some of the currents that would have used to charge the phone are lost due to the adjustments made to make the phones slimmer. That is the reason older versions of cell phone had such long-lasting battery life compared to the smartphones today.
A simple answer to this problem would be to add insulation to the system again to make the battery fully utilize the power the electromagnetic induction is creating.
For this hack, all you is few basic household items. Like:
- Phone case
- Paper (4A preferred)
- Tin foil
- Regular tape
- Measuring tape
All available at home or at your nearest store. The foil sort of helps those lost fields to reflect back. But simply attaching the field won’t work, you have to align it with the field.
Since the phone is vertical, the current is most likely to be from top to bottom. The magnetic field will be perpendicular to the direction of the current. So horizontal piece of tin foil would be parallel to the magnetic field blocking it from escaping the surface. We want the strips to be very close together but not touching. So the strips need to be half an inch wide. The best thing to do is make a template on where the tin foils will be going. Doing that, the work becomes fairly easy. Cut out the A4 paper according to the size of the cover, ensuring the space for camera and speakers are not covered. Take the half inch cut tin foils and attach it to the paper with tape. The number of tin foils will vary according to the size of your phone. Place it inwards to the case so that it doesn’t scratch the back of your phone. Put your phone in the case and that’s it. It is that simple. This hack will reflect the lost field back to your battery, almost doubling its lifetime.
So if you are unsure about the efficiency of this nifty little trick, you can check the remaining life of the battery using any battery monitoring app with the foil and without the foil. When I did the experiment, my phone showed 14 hours of battery left but with the foil almost instantly showed 29 hours and 40 minutes left. Almost more than a double!
