[News] How To open the secret battery menu in Your Xiaomi Smartphone, to see battery charge cycles?

Hello Mi Fan's!!!

Did you know that there are a series of Xiaomi secret codes that enable you to access hidden menus? If you have a Xiaomi mobile updated to MIUI 11, you can access the secret battery menu of your Xiaomi  mobile. The trick to enable this secret menu of MIUI 11 is only valid with this operating system version. But also not with all, but with those versions that are based on Android 10 so if you have MIUI 11, but based on Android 9 Pie, you will not be able to access it.

The code to access the hidden battery menu in Your Xiaomi Smartphone!

By entering this code we are given access to a screen with information about the battery that, although it may seem irrelevant, allows us to know a data as important as the battery cycles through which our smartphone from the eastern company has gone through.

If you meet this requirement, open the phone app, enter the code * # * # 6485 # * # * in the dialer and then press the call button. A series of data will appear on your screen that detail battery information such as its status, voltage and so on, but the one that interests us is the one identified as MF_02 . And I collected Some More info about available code's in this menu so, i will explain it here!

An important Notice: The MF_05: and MF_06: Not appear in this menu, hope you understand!

  • * MB_00: Remaining battery power
  • * MB_06: Battery health status (displayed as "Good" indicates normal battery status)
  • * MF_02: The number of full charges (not counted when the single full cycle charge conditions are not met)
  • * MF_05: actual battery capacity
  • * MF_06: Factory battery capacity
  • * Battery health percentage (%) = MF_05 ÷ MF_06 × 100

This is the one that indicates the battery cycles of the smartphone or, says otherwise, how many times we have put the phone to charge. In this case we have done it 232 times, that is, less than one year.

What is the use of knowing battery cycles?

As simple as knowing how much life your mobile phone has left. As you know, the battery is one of the most degraded elements of your phone since the brands began to make their phones thinner, few phones allow you to change this component manually. In fact, replacing a phone's battery is so expensive that it often makes up for buying a new phone.

Battery cycles mark the life of the device because as soon as 500 cycles are exceeded (about a year and a half), the battery loses capacity and effectiveness. And if we start talking about wireless recharging, the issue is complicated because there are already studies that show that these cycles weaken the phone battery even more.

1 charge cycle is 0-100 each time, if you charge the phone 50% each day, it need 2 day to complete the 1 cycle.
