Included with the holder are 8 support legs (4 short and 4 longer versions) that can be customized based on device size. For most devices, the best mount holder configuration is to attach 2 short support legs on top and the 2 long support legs on the bottom of the holder.

How to choose the best charger and cable for your smartphone

1) Choose the correct charger:

This is simpler. Each charger comes with a label or inscription informing the current in amperes ( A or mAh ) and the voltage in volts (V) .
The voltage should always be 5V and the current must be at least 2A or 2000mAh . Below these values, generally, will be little for any current appliance. The maximum is usually 3A or 4A .

2) Cable selection (USB, MicroUSB, etc)

It does not look like it, but this task is just as important as choosing the charger. And it’s usually a lot more complicated than it sounds. First, because the difference between a quality cable and an inefficient cable is not always “visible”. Second, store sellers (virtually everyone) can not tell which cable is the best, and therefore end up making only brand recommendations or assumptions.

5 tips to increase the battery life of your mobile phone

The most current gadget is powered by lithium-ion . They are quite different from batteries used in older devices, such as nickel-cadmium , and some procedures that help extend the life of older batteries may have the opposite effect on newer technologies. See five tips for your cell phone’s battery not to leave you in the hand with little time to use.

If you are going to charge the phone at night, remove the
Most smartphones today are smart enough to stop powering the battery when the charge reaches 100% , so there’s no need to worry about that. But if you go to sleep with a cell phone in the socket, it’s a good idea to take off the hood: lithium-ion batteries are extremely sensitive to heat and the measurement can increase their life.

Do not store the battery empty.

An empty battery is unstable, and can cause serious injury if it is taken out of the drawer after one or two months of use. Ideally, you store your battery with about 40% of the charge . It tends to lose something between 5% and 10% of the energy stored each month spent in idleness, a security rate good enough to prevent explosions when it is put into the power outlet.

Do not let yourself beat 0% or 100% frequently

Modern batteries do not like extremes. Ideally, if possible, always carry it from 40% to 80%. A full recharge cycle is exhausting and the battery life is shortened.

Make small daily refills

Contrary to what most parents think, the lithium-ion batteries used in modern cell phones do not suffer from memory problems like their older relatives, those of nickel-cadmium. That is, they will not hook up at 80% if you do not have time to leave the phone in the socket until it reaches 100%. On the contrary, small daily recharges , which keep the level above half, help increase battery life.

Do not use the fast charge mode

Lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to heat and sudden variations in electrical voltage . They prefer everything to happen slowly and always. The fast charging option available on some Android devices , therefore, can even break a branch from time to time, but it is very harmful to the health of the device.
