Calibrating your android device may sound cliché. But what’s the deal about calibration and why is it important? Calibration basically does a reset or rectification of some anomalies on your device that makes it send wrong or misleading data. Recently flashed a ROM, updated OTA, changed your phone’s battery or restored a full backup? If you tick one or more of this checklist, then you are likely to have experienced a false charge by your battery.

This problem makes it rather easy to lose battery power, and also difficult to know when your battery is fully charged. Before calibrating your phone’s battery, finding out the cause of the problem is key. Does your battery look good without any bulges? and your operating system in top condition? Is your battery naturally close to its end-life? If these are not the cause then calibration can be a good step in getting your battery rejuvenated.

• Calibrating a non-rooted device

If your device is non-rooted, a simple manual calibration process can do wonders. Here’s how to go about the process which involves cycling the battery charge.

• Extensively use your phone until it switches off naturally

• Switch on your device and let it automatically go off

• Plug your Android phone and let it go on a full charge (with no interruption!)

• Switch on your android phone

• Now unplug the charger and turn on your phone. It’s likely your battery will indicate it is not fully charged.

• Plug in again and get the 100% charged notification. Switch on and check if there’s a discrepancy. If the battery doesn’t reflect it is 100% charged, repeat this step until your battery displays 100% when restarted.

• Having attained the 100% charge capacity, drain the battery to 0 and repeat the cycle. This does a manual reset of the battery and effectively calibrates it.

• Calibrating a non-rooted device

If you have a rooted device, downloading an app for the process is usually the way to go. Battery Calibration app by NéMa should work excellently for this task. Some users have also reported that clearing the batterystats.bin is another great way for rooted devices. Nonetheless, here are your steps to calibrating a rooted Android phone.

• Completely drain your battery by using your phone till it goes off. Switch it back on and ensure it goes off on its own.

• Afterwards, use an original OEM charger to plug your phone and let it power up to 100%

• Switch on when it’s 100%. If your battery shows it is still yet to be fully charged, switch off and plug again. Repeat the process until it is charged fully without any discrepancy.

• If the charging gets stuck at a particular percentage, repeat the process until it works just fine and attains full charge.

• If this is done, visit your Play Store and download the Battery Calibration app

• Grant root permissions and tap on Start calibration.

• Follow the screen prompts after running the app and make sure root permissions are granted

• If the calibration is completed, reboot your android phone and drain the battery back to 0 %. Get a 100% full charge while the phone is switched off.

• Switch back on and you are all set!
