3 Common Mistakes We Do While Charging Smartphones, Causing Damage To Battery

You’d never know it, but the way you charge your phone can be crucial for not only your electricity bills and safety, but also the lifespan of its battery. The phone batteries used today are based on a precise number of charge cycles and to make them last longer, it is advised to never charge them to 100% or drain them to 0%.

Today we want to share with you some other tips about the right way to charge your phone, so you can use it in the best way possible and avoid any dangers.


Quick-charge devices aren't always a good idea

When you use a quick-charge device such as a power bank, the battery is exposed to a higher voltage. This can lead to overheating which can damage the battery and the phone.

Don't use your phone while it's charging

Using your phone while it's plugged in increases its temperature and puts severe strain on the battery.

Leaving your phone case while charging

Smartphones can overheat while charging, so if you leave your phone case on, the heat gets trapped. If that happens, the temperature rises and the battery becomes stressed.

And if your phone case is made of plastic, it might burn and damage your smartphone more.
