Guilty As Charged: 5 Bad Habits When Charging Our Phones

Published

We get it: there is so much to do on our phones, that we will do whatever it takes to keep using them. But some of these things bring down the battery life of your phones over the long run. Read on to know the things you should stop doing to prolong your battery’s life:

 

  1. Letting the battery die before charging it

As soon as your phone gives you the first low battery alert, close all your apps, turn off the internet, and put it away for charging. Your Instagram scrolling and chatting can wait: your phone is dying and it is best to charge it as soon as possible.

 

2. Recharging it constantly throughout the day

 

On the other end of this spectrum are people who charge their phone even when it is at a decent 50% mark. Once or twice during a long day is fine, but do not make it a daily thing. Doing so will damage your battery. Charge your phone when it is drained up to 20-25% only.

 

3. Using the phone while it is charging

This is damaging to your battery and very dangerous for you. There are so many incidents where phones have blown up because people were on call while it was charging. Keep yourself occupied with another activity while your phone finishes charging.

 

4. Leaving it charging overnight

 

Yes, it is convenient to wake up to a phone fully charged. But you still have to resist the temptation, so that your battery’s longevity is maintained.

 

5. Using any charger that’s lying around

Keep your phone’s own charger with you. Do not use a substandard one, or of a different company or make. The difference in ampere and voltage will affect battery performance over time.

Chandrayaan-2 Spins History In Lunar Orbit

Published

India’s spacecraft to the moon Chandrayaan-2 successfully entered the lunar orbit on Tuesday, clearing a crucial move for it to land on the moon’s surface on September 7.

The spacecraft will hover around the moon’s orbit for the next few weeks, before it is slowly lowered onto the lunar surface. Chandrayaan-2 is an integrated spacecraft comprising an orbiter, a lander – Vikram named after the father of India’s space programme Vikram Sarabhai and Pragyan, a rover that will roll out out once the lander touches ground.

India’s first moon mission Chandrayaan-1 suffered damage to a few instruments after it faced issues with the heat shield of the spacecraft on entry into the lunar orbit. Space scientists had attributed to the lack of adequate information on the heat generated due to friction when entering the moon’s orbit, a crucial data the US declined to offer. This time around, Isro officials had enough data from its first mission to make the lunar entry smooth.

“We did what all humanly was possible, but at the same time since it is new mission and it is a terrifying moment for us,” said K Sivan, Chairman of Isro.

A series of orbit manoeuvres will be performed on Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the moon’s surface, Indian Space Research Organisation said.

“The landing day is fixed and the location of the Moon is fixed, but our launching day delayed to achieve the same landing day, we worked on the time based on that,” Isro chairman K Sivan said. “After landing images will be made available by the Rover”.
