Google Pixel 2: How to calibrate the battery

Is your Pixel 3 not charging up to 100%? Maybe, all it needs is some battery calibration. It’s not as hard as it sounds. Here’s how you do it.

Calibrate the battery on your Google Pixel 2 XL

Again this is only applicable if you still have a little power left on your device. Calibrating the battery is essential to keep battery performance optimized and that the your phone only shows the correct battery level at all times. The calibration process involves draining the battery completely and therefore it should only be done occasionally. Calibrating the battery more often can depreciate the battery’s lifespan from constant draining or fully discharging. If you haven’t done it yet and you would want to give it a shot, then follow these steps:

  1. Use your device until it powers off or when the battery is completely drained.

  2. Turn it back on and then let it turn off on its own.

  3. When your device is powered off completely, connect it to a charger and then allow it to charge until the charging indicator or battery icon says it has reached a 100 percent.

  4. Disconnect your phone from the charger then turn it on.

  5. If the battery life does not reach 100 percent, plug it back into the charger and allow it to charge longer until it is completely charged at 100 percent.

  6. Unplug the charger when the battery is full.

  7. Restart your phone.

  8. Then start using your phone again as you normally do until it runs out of power and turns off on its on.

  9. Charge it again until the battery gets fully charged.

  10. Turn on your phone.

Your battery is now calibrated.
