One of the most common features in old telephones was the presence of removable batteries, which could be replaced by the same users. However, this component has disappeared in almost all modern mobileswhich now have a non-removable battery. Despite this, behind this change adopted by cell phone manufacturers, there is more than one reason. Do you want which one? Here we tell you.
What does it mean that the battery is not removable?
Unlike the old phonesmodern models integrate a sealed battery that is attached to the electronic body of the device, and that does not need a rear panel. In this sense, it cannot be removed by users, but rather, to extract them, it is necessary to resort to a specialized technician.
Why do cell phones no longer have removable batteries?
Although a removable battery had many benefits and was a good way to turn off a frozen phonemanufacturers consider this feature to be obsolete and that it goes against the current demands of users, who are increasingly looking for devices modern Y thin. The main reasons are the following:
- Slimmer phones: According to Android Central, the removable battery was a real obstacle for manufacturers to develop a thinner and all-screen mobile, since this component made the device thicker and also took up space.
- Avoid equipment damage: Although the removable batteries could be easily removed, many users used poor quality batteries. Being attached to the body of the mobile, only technicians can remove it.
- Safer mobiles: with the battery assembled inside, thieves will have a much harder time disabling the tracking features.
- Waterproof: By no longer having a back cover and becoming unibody devices, there is less chance of any liquid entering the interior of the mobile that could damage it.
