Battery Protection: Overview

When it comes to the Battery Protection feature, Galaxy devices manage to consume less power from the battery to reduce the additional stress on the battery.

If you’ve also received the latest One UI update and are interested in using this feature, you can go to Settings > Battery > Battery Protection. Then Turn it On manually by choosing any of the three following modes:

  • Basic
    • When your battery is charged to 100%, charging will stop until the battery level drops down to 95% and then charging will start again.
  • Adaptive
    • Use Maximum while you’re asleep and switch to Basic before you wake up. Sleep time is estimated based on your phone usage patterns.
  • Maximum
    • Your battery will stop charging when it reaches 80%.

That means the ‘Basic’ mode will generally allow the device to complete the charging to 100% and immediately stop charging until the battery level goes down to 95%. It will again continue charging. While the ‘Adaptive’ mode automatically switches between basic and maximum as per your usage and sleeping pattern.

However, the ‘Maximum’ mode will restrict the battery charging to 80% and reduce the charging life cycle of the battery.
