Wirelessly charging your phone, while highly convenient, risks depleting the life of devices using typical lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), report researchers.
Researchers at WMG at the University of Warwick have found that use of inductive charging, whilst highly convenient, risks depleting the life of mobile phones using typical LIBs (Lithium-ion batteries)
So why do batteries swell? Lithium-ion batteries create a chemical reaction that generates power for modern electronics. However, as a battery ages the chemical reaction that occurs inside the battery no longer completes as intended, which results in the creation of gas. In more technical terms
This guide instructs you to fully detach the display assembly; this is intended to prevent accidental damage to the display cables. If you feel comfortable removing the battery without putting undue strain on the display cables, you can skip the steps for detaching the display.
