What is Adaptive Loading?

The adaptive or optimized charging function has been designed to control the charging speed of your smartphone to preserve the health of its battery from degradation. Naturally, battery health degrades over time after crossing a certain charge cycle threshold.

To slow down this process, adaptive charging intelligently controls charge cycles (especially during overnight charging) to prolong overall battery performance. Most smartphones, including Android and iPhone, come pre-equipped with this feature to protect their battery life.

How can adaptive charging keep your battery healthy?

The adaptive charging feature can help save your battery life in the following ways:

1. Check the load gearsespecially during overnight charging.

2. Reduces unnecessary battery degradation by limit charging cycles above 80% charge.

3. Intelligently monitors and learns your load model to determine the best time to fully charge the phone.

4. Avoids the recurring charging cycle between 99-100% during overnight charging and caliber your phone’s battery.
