Does warm or cold weather drain phone Li-Ion battery faster ?
Hello, does warm or cold temperature have worse impact on Lithium Ion battery ? Does heat or cold discharge battery faster ?
Lithium ion batteries don't like extreme temperatures. Optimal operating temperature range of lithium ion battery is approx. 0 to 45 °Celsius / 32 to 113 °Fahrenheit. The range may depends on manufacturer, but in general li-ion batteries perform best at room temperature.
But cold weather drains lithium ion battery faster. Batteries discharge faster at low temperatures, especially when freezing.
