When you use your phone for many years, you may notice that over time your battery performance has decreased. However, there is no option to check the health of your battery on Android devices. This is a bit different with Xiaomi phones. You can check the health of your battery from a special menu with a special code included in the MIUI software.
How to check your Xiaomi’s battery health
What you have to do is not complicated at all. Enter *#*#6485#*#* code on the dial interface to check the battery loss and health status, and whether it is necessary to choose a battery replacement.
There are 2 important values for us here. MF_05 and MF_06 value.
MF_05: Current (actual) battery capacity
MF_06: Factory battery capacity
For example, in the photo below, 3400000 is written in the MF_06 section. This equates to 3400 mAh. The actual value is only 2603 mAh. So how do we calculate the percent life of our battery? This problem is solved by very simple math operation: MF_05 ÷ MF_06 × 100.
If we calculate the percentage life of the battery in the photo: we get the result 2603000 / 3400000 x 100 = 76%. When the battery health percentage is less than 80%, it is recommended to replace your battery for a better charge life.
