Brilliant software could MASSIVELY extend your battery life

Did you already know that leaving your phone on its charger after it's battery is at 100 percent is the best way to drain its ability to hold a charge? Qnovo, a tech startup, did too. Their in-development app is intended to regulate the flow of electricity to your phone.

When your phone continues charging after it's fully powered up, the ions getting pushed around to generate a charge eventually begin bonding to each other. This basically means that there's fewer tiny feet walking on the fuzzy carpet to generate the static that keeps your phone making calls.

Qnovo's app works by constantly checking your phone's power level. It pulses the battery and then decides how much power your phone actually needs before it reaches a full charge. It actively measures your average battery life, charge time and power usage to determine the best way to keep your gadgets powered up.

The company is also developing a chip that works in tandem with their app that could be released as early as next year. Qnovo claims that the chip could do more than just increase your battery's lifespan, it could potentially charge your phone more quickly without any risks.
