How to fix Infinix battery drain so fast and All battery problems

Battery drain is common on Android phone models more especially for low level Android smartphone users. But excessive Infinix battery drain can be as a result of few things discussed in this guide.

Low level Android smartphone users simply means those that has limited control over their Android phones. They are neither on root, Xpose nor custom ROMs. Advance Android users can manipulate their battery, CPU and control access using some tools like Greenify, CPU Manager, Root manager under Xpose Frameworks

That’s said for now!

Reasons for fix Infinix Battery Drain so fast?

1. Bad or damaged battery

Batteries either become bad or damaged either because their lifespan has efficiently been utilized or messed up so quickly. For the case of less than 12 month Infinix battery (or any Android battery) being bad or damaged, it is either that it is a companies fault or owner’s fault.

On 80% cases, it is definitely owner’s fault. Here is why

Exposure of the battery to electric current when fully charged is a great coincidence to rapid battery damage. One doesn’t need to keep one’s phone plugged to the electric socket even when the phone keeps saying “Charging completed, please unplug the charger”.

It is a clear caution that leaving the battery overnight in order to fully get over charge is a bad practice. Also, constant charging is a bad practice especially in a region of scarce power supply.

Using of under-rated power banks is not always recommended. If one’s battery capacity is 4500mAh, using a power bank below 4500mAh indicates an overloaded or under-powered charge. It is like forcing a 5 years old kid to lift a 15 year old teen.

How to avoid damaged battery

Unplug phone from socket immediately after fully charged
Use battery up to at most 20% before another charge. Repeated charging above 50% is a bad battery practice.
Use power banks that are at least twice more than your battery capacity. If your battery capacity is 4500mAh, buying a 10,000mAh is will be a good one.

2. Poor or incompatible Infinix charger

Just like we earlier mentioned “Use power banks that are at least twice more than your battery capacity”, chargers have ratings. But these ratings are quite complicated to normal phone users. You might need to check how to know battery ratings in our guide here.

Meanwhile, phone manufacture’s ship phones with their compatible chargers. You can check the ratings on your charger before buying a new charger. This makes sure that it gives the same amount of voltage to your battery. Low and high voltages to batteries are disadvantages to them.

Be careful of cheap charges, they are not too cheap to mess around your precious battery. You may not be able to get an original battery from your phone manufacturers because almost all batteries on sales are from different people – businessmen.

How to fix incompatible Infinix charger

  • Make sure you look for your charger rating before buying a new one
  • Avoid cheap chargers.
  • Related: Be careful of energy savers one installs. Most of them suck more battery than they save.

3. Buggy Infinix System updates

Good batteries can start to misbehave when a wrong script override their initial scripts after system updates. This is simply a normal update bugs especially on beta system updates on Infinix.

How to avoid battery problems on Infinix System updates?

Avoid quick action to update to beta system updates. Beta updates are still prone to bugs – they are released just for testing purposes unless you really want to test.
Go for stable system updates with change logs that treat earlier bugs
Make sure to backup your original stock ROM before upgrading to newer updates.

OPTIONAL BATTERY GUIDES

1. Infinix battery overheat even when not using it

There are three instances for your battery to overheat even when they are not on use

  1. The battery is dead
  2. The temperature is excessive for the battery to bear or
  3. The I.C is bad

If the battery is either dead, above normal temperature or charging I.C is bad, then your battery is 70% chance to overheat when not in use.

Your battery will also overheat when in use if

  1. You are using a wrong charger just like we mentioned above
  2. You are using the phone while charging, as a result of clogged CPU, your battery becomes hot
  3. You are either using 3G or 4G band while charging

The quickest way to charge one battery faster is through

  • Turning your phone off
  • Turning on Airplane mode
  • Using the right battery
  • Sometimes using a fast charge tools or phone fast charge feature.

You can stabilize your device temperature by taking your phone into a freezer. Make sure that the freezer is turned off. Don’t place your phone direct in a freezer, find a plate and place your phone on it with the screen facing upward.

My phone cannot charge or it takes longer to charge if my phone is turned on but charges faster when my phone is switched off

You are either using a wrong or low capacity rated charger or your battery is becoming bad. Find a better charger with the right ratings.

I cannot type well while the phone is charging

The reasons are

The current is not consistent. Simply change to a different electric socket. Do not plug your phone direct to wall socket because it has less control over how current enter your charger
You are using a bad charger.

  13. My infinix hot 7 battery drains easily overnight ,,, the same way it drains when I’m using it is the same way it drains when I’m not using it …. What should I do?

    1. Please take your phone to a specialized phone technician.

      It could be your own initial charging cycle
      It could be your phone’s battery
      It could be the IC.

  14. When I charge my phone to 100% at night 10% will remove from it before morning… What can I do please 🙏 🙏

    1. If your phone has data network enabled, then it is bound to drop to some percentage.

      If there’s no data enabled, it is also bound to drop because your device requires battery to power on till sunrise.

      In order to reduce the discharge, turn the phone off or put it to flight mode.
