To prolong the lifespan of your phone’s battery and overall device, there are several practices to avoid when charging your phone.
1. Opt for chargers that are specifically designed for your phone or from reputable manufacturers.
Cheap or counterfeit chargers can deliver improper voltage and damage your battery.
2. Avoid leaving your phone connected to the charger for an extended period after it reaches 100% charge. Overcharging can strain the battery and potentially reduce its capacity over time.
3. Avoid exposing your phone to extreme temperatures, both high and low. High temperatures can degrade the battery, while cold temperatures can temporarily reduce its performance.
4. While fast charging is convenient, using it constantly can generate more heat and put stress on the battery. Whenever possible, opt for regular charging or slower charging methods.
5. Thick or bulky phone cases can trap heat during charging, potentially affecting battery performance. Remove the case or use a charging-friendly case while charging.
6. Though it’s convenient, leaving your phone charging overnight for extended periods can put unnecessary stress on the battery. Disconnect it once it reaches a sufficient charge.
7. Using power-intensive apps or performing resource-heavy tasks while charging can generate heat and impact the battery’s longevity. Minimize usage during charging.
