How to Increase Battery Life: Laws of Physics
How to Increase Battery Life: Laws of Physics Using laws of physics, you can increase the battery life of any smartphone (either an Android one or Apple). Let’s get on with the procedure and a little background on the Physics behind the trick.
How Smartphone Battery Works
The battery supplied power to every component of the phone. Micro-circuits connect the various components which are smaller and use minimum insulation around the circuits to make the as slim as possible. This is a problem because as per physics, any wire with a current going through it will have an induced electromagnetic field around that wire which can’t be avoided completely, however, some of the electromagnetic energy used to power the phone is lost through the magnetic field. With proper insulation, the magnetic field around the wire can be suppressed. The insulation blocks some of the field and redirects into the wire which can be used to power the components and improve the battery life.
With the lack of insulation, more power is lost, and it reduces the battery power which can be made efficient through better insulation.
How to Improve Battery Life
We are going to use the insulation using the basic household items.
- Printing paper
- Tin-foil – Acts as a conductor
- Regular tape
- Pair of scissors
We will use the tin foil’s characteristics as a conductor to reflect and block some of the magnetic waves which would otherwise be wasted. Instead of the electromagnetic waves escaping from the back of the phone which is the most vulnerable point, we would be using the tin foil to redirect it to the back of the phone. Simply applying some tin foil on the back of the phone won’t help, we will need to orient the tin foil so it follows along the magnetic wave lines so it can be reflected accurately.
The most of the electric current flows from top to bottom or vice versa. Since the magnetic field is always perpendicular to the direction of the flow of the current, so we will be using the horizontal strips of tin foil. When an inductor (the tin foil) is exposed to magnetic flux, it induces current related to the surface area of the surface. We will use half an inch of foil strips equally spaced.

Prepare the tools required for the purpose
Cut out the paper in the share, excluding the pace for the camera.
Slice the Tin foil in half an inch strips and tape them onto the paper.
Put it back into the cover and place your phone. It’s done!
