How to Calibrate Battery for Maximum Life on Android Smart Phones

Calibrate Battery LogoOver a period of time we have seen on how you can taste your different Android phones with the custom ROMs, also in the articles of custom ROMs we have been talking about the calibration of battery which we will see on how exactly you can do the same and also in the due course of this article we will see on what exactly the calibration of battery means to you with its benefits. Please note that this method can only be applied for all those phones whose phones are updated with the custom ROMs. So, lets check out with the help of a short procedure on how you can calibrate your phone’s battery easily with the help of simple instructions below.

Instructions to Calibrate Battery for Maximum Life on Custom ROMs:

  • Once you install the custom ROM in your phone, you need to ensure that you have charged your phone for 3 -4 days of time so that the battery gets aligned to the usage pattern of yours. Ensure that in these 3 – 4 days of time you are not charging till the battery becomes 15 – 20% so as to utilize the full charging cycles.
  • Now, once the battery is charged full after 3 – 4 days, you then need to connect the phone to the computer with the help of USB cable and then connecting the USB cable to the computer, enter into the recovery mode.
  • Now, to enter the recovery mode there are different key pattern which you need to follow for different phones as its different for different phones. Like, for entering into the recovery mode in your Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 as well as in the Samsung Galaxy Ace you will have to first turn off your device, long press the volume up key, press Menu as holding both the buttons press the power button to start into the recovery mode.

  • For more on how you can enter into the recovery mode, you can also refer the above video on how you can enter into the recovery mode for your Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 and on Galaxy Ace handsets.
  • Now, once you get into the recovery mode, you will find an option called “Advanced” at the bottom of the list in the recovery mode screen. Once you tap on the same, you will see an option called “Wipe battery Stats”, scroll to the same but don’t select the same to wipe it all. Quickly, remove the USB cable which is connected and then choose the option of “Wipe Battery Stats”.
  • Once it’s done, you will have to reboot the phone by selecting the same after selecting the “Go Back” option in your recovery mode screen. Now, that’s it you need to again do it for 3 -4 times once the phone is fully charged so as to fully ensure that the battery has been calibrated to the 100% charging so that then you will be able to enjoy the most of your battery.
  • Please note that after wiping the battery stats, you need to put your phone to the charger for 30 minutes even after it shows that the phone has been charged to 100%. That’s it you have now successfully calibrated the battery. This is the best way and also is the simplest way with which you can calibrate the battery so as to enjoy the fullest potential of the battery as claimed by the ROM manufacturers. This procedure can be applied to all the custom ROMs like Amestris ROM, Blockbuster ROM, Galaxy S2 ROM, Extra Ordinary ROM and also on other custom ROMs which we have covered the same on androidadvices.com.

    “Now, that’s it you need to again do it for 3 -4 times once the phone is fully charged so as to fully ensure that the battery has been calibrated to the 100% charging so that then you will be able to enjoy the most of your battery.”

    Does this mean you repeat the entire process of charging, discharging and wiping the battery 3-4 times or just 3-4 times charging and discharging and you only wipe it once?

  • khendrup

  • kaushal

    Neal please tell me, i am having samsung galaxy ace and at the time i play motion sensor games every time it goes left side automatically,even though i did tried to callibrate however the same is thing is happening…..wat to do?????????

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      yes there are some issues with particular games as it doesnt support flash!

  • uros

    Is this way better then simply using Battery Calibration application that you can find on the Market? If yes, then why?? I suppose that Battery Calibrator does the same thing with just one click in the programme. Or am I wrong?

    Thanks….

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      no, its only for the phone swith custom roms!

  • Lu

    Hi!

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Mini. From what I understand, this phone requires a special ROM. If so, where can I find it?
    Secondly, my battery goes dead in less than 12 hours, although the phone was purchased only 2 weeks ago. I calibrated the phone when I got it ( battery charge of 12 hours then fully discharge – 3 times) yet it can go dead in like 8 hours of stand-by. Do you thing it’s a matter of re-calibrating it or should I go see a service for the phone.

    P.S. If calibrating is the correct step to take, is Battery Calibrate Free App ok to use?
    Thanks!

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes battery calibration only works on the phones with the custom rom installed!

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      BATTERY CALIBRATION CLEARS THE LOG OF BATTERY CHARGING AND ALSO RE CALIBRATES FOR THE FULL PERFORMANCE. ITS GENERALLY POSSIBLE TO DO THIS IN CUSTOM ROM LOADED PHONES!

  • arive

    Gracias por la información, me resulta de gran utilidad y provecho.
    Está muy bien explicado el procedimiento.
    En mi caso, precisamente por falta de concreción en anteriores explicaciones de este mismo proceso, lo he realizado siempre incompleto. Motivando que no alcanzase resultados óptimos.
    Un saludo.

  • Nix

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

  • Sach

    As soon as i pull out my usb cable my phone turns off, so i don’t get the chance to select ‘go back’ and rebooting.

  • dr salil

    do we have to repeat the process 3-4 times on the same day or on different days,I have recently updated my galaxy s2 with superfast litening rom.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes you need to repeat the same!

  • BG

    DAMN PROCESS,MY FONE IS NOW DEAD

    • Palani

      Get a wall-charger for charging your battery externally, and then charge the battery on it. Once the battery is completely charged, put it into your phone and reset the battery calibration.

      Worked for me.

  • RiseTong

    for unlocked galaxy s2, is the rom already the custom one or we need to install another custom rom b4 calibrating the battery?

    thx..

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      no, its not a compulsion!

  • amar

    Why do you require to connect the phone to the computer via usb and then enter in recovery mode ?
    Simply booting into recovery mode and then wiping battery stats is not enough ?

    Point is – while connected to a cumputer via usb and entering into recovery mode is tad diffucult. It simply is booting on.
    Whereas entering into recovery mode when phone is disconnected is easy.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      its a process! while the cable is connected, the phone will be charging!

  • Harmeet

    Is this applicable for Sony Xperia Arc?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      No, you cannot calibrate the battery for your phone!

  • amit

  • Dilip

    Thanks so much for the Instruction

    On the Instruction 6, …” Now, that’s it you need to again do it for 3 -4 times once the phone is fully charged .”…Does it means need to do the same procedure of calibration 3- 4 times ?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes dilip you are correct!

  • Baba

    Hi, I purchased my Samsung Galaxy Pro in June 2011. I too have been facing the batter problem- easily gets discharged with 3 to 4 hours. Shall follow this procedure you have given or this procedure is suited for brand new versions. I wish to know whether the data I stored in this phone would get deleted during this process?

    Regards,

    Baba

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      no, the data will not be deleted!

  • Douglas

    All of these things to have a custom rom that voids your warranty, i think ill go back to original ones

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      the warranty can be reclaimed by revoking the root access!!

      • Douglas

        I know but if somethings bad happens and i cant turn the phone on?

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

          there shouldnt be any issue, pull out the battery and then try starting!

  • sainath

    hii, are there any custom ROMs developed for Galaxy Fit S5670?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes sainath, we will soon be coming out with the same!

      • siddhartha

        can you give the ,, rough idea, that in how many days, it will be on the website ,, ! as after seeing the other phones running on different custom roms, it’s hard to resist !!

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

          Which one you want?
