It may be that many of you have already noticed that when your mobile phone is exposed to extreme temperatures the performance of the battery decreases sharply.
Surely some of you have also been very scared the first time this happened to you but the truth is that this is only a measure of your mobile phone to protect the useful life of your battery.
The truth is that the battery of mobile phones is designed to work in a suitable temperature that oscillates between 20 degrees or a little more.
When the battery begins to work in temperatures below 10 degrees or above 30 degrees is when its performance automatically begins to decrease to protect the state of the battery and prevent permanent damage to it.
The effect of extreme temperatures
In temperatures lower than 10º, to be more specific in cold temperatures such as -5º, the battery performance decreases up to 20% and something very similar happens when the temperature approaches 40º, in the case of heat percentage of battery performance is reduced up to 15%. Luckily, this low performance in the mobile battery turns out to be something momentary and has no permanent side effects in the useful life of your battery.
One of the most notable differences when a device is exposed to these extreme temperatures, is that for example in the cold the effect is only noticeable in the percentage of the battery and it does not affect the system, but the heat does slow down the system, for example if the mobile is exposed directly to the sun, the battery can get overheated and breakdown.
The best tips to make good use of your device in extreme temperatures are:
- Charge the battery to 100% before exposing it to extreme temperatures.
- When it is very hot, keep the mobile in a cool place and never leave it directly in the sun.
- In the case of very cold temperature, it is best to keep the phone protected in a warm place, or you can also choose to use thermal covers that help maintain the ideal temperature.
Do not let your mobile run out of battery
As we have said before, it is very important not to let the percentage of the battery reach 0% when exposed to very low or very high temperatures. For this reason, many establishments, are aware of the effects of temperature on the mobiles of their customers, such as the premises located in ski resorts, have begun to make mobile charging stations available to customers.
From Yupcharge, leaders for more than 10 years in the field of charging stations for mobile devices, we have a wide catalogue of mobile charging stations for restaurants and other establishments that fit perfectly with the needs of mobile users in extreme temperatures.
For example for ski resorts, our Poprock cargo locker with capacity for 8 devices, or the Wall box with capacity for 20 devices, are excellent options, since being closed lockers maintain an ideal temperature for the proper functioning of the battery at the same time it is loaded.
For temperatures with many hours of sunshine, as in summer, our recommended charging station would undoubtedly be Soleo. A station that works thanks to solar energy that collects from its roof, although it can also work with hydraulic energy, and can be used to connect 8 mobile devices.
Yupcharge has the ideal charging solution for any sector. Choose the charging station that best suits your needs!
