In theory, with the passage of time then the software will not be for accurately displays the percentage of battery. Perhaps the level of accuracy is reduced only slightly, but if continuously will decrease accuracy. It could be the original battery level is still 70% only read 45% on the screen. Therefore, calibration is necessary to restore the level of accuracy of the battery level readings.

How to do it?

Actually, there has never been a standard of the vendor or manufacturer of the battery to calibrate. The most common way is as follows:

Use the device until the battery is depleted and the device turns off by itself.
Charge the battery to 100%. Not to break up the filling.
After 100%, allow up to 1 hour.
finished
There may still be other versions of how to calibrate the battery, such as repeated several times such measures even have to reset the device. But whatever it is, basically there is no specific standard battery calibration way.

What effect?

The expected effect is the measurement of the battery level becomes more accurate. For example the original battery level is still 80% yes 80% legible on the display device.
