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.

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.
