If you want to check the battery health of your OnePlus Phone, there’s a free app built by OnePlus which shares that data with you. Not only does it let you check your battery health, it also provides a series of diagnostics for your device to make sure all the bells and whistles are working fine.
How to check the battery health of your OnePlus Phone – An easy process
If you haven’t already, look at our guide on how to sideload apps on your Android phone. Outside of that, there’s nothing really technical about this.
Head on over to APK Mirror and download the latest version of OnePlus Diagnostic. The latest version of the APK is dated May 4th, 2020, which you can download directly by clicking here.
It’s worth mentioning that this is an official OnePlus app. The publisher is OnePlus Ltd on APK Mirror which means using the app won’t pose any danger or risk to your phone or its data.
Once you have installed the app, launch it from your app drawer or your home screen.
From here, you’ll see view battery status at the main screen. Tap on it.
At the very bottom, you can see your phone’s battery health.
You can see my phone is at a healthy 90%, with a month after launch. In addition, you can also find out your device temperature here if you need to.
Lastly, the app also lets you run some hardware diagnostics and tests on your device to make sure its in working condition. This saves you the trouble of running the dialer commands which can be more technical.
The oddest aspect about the app is that it’s unavailable on the Google Play Store. However, this is one of those apps that will likely get an update once every year or so.
With OnePlus devices, maintaining good battery health is simple. Always use the provided Warp/Dash charger. Buy a spare one to take to work or travel if you need to, but avoid using third-party or other chargers, powerbanks, etc.
