Avoid these mistakes while charging your phone

Many phone users do complain that their device’s batteries discharge quickly. They also put the blame on the manufacturer for this problem. However, the manufacturer is not to be blame always. 


Here are five mistakes that users typically make when charging their phones:

1.  Waiting for the battery to reach low levels before charging

Don't let your battery get drained completely before charging it. Letting your battery get drained completely before charging will make the battery get stressed and shorten the battery life. This might not happen immediately, but over the time, it begins to manifest. Think of your battery as a human being, you cant wait till you are about to die before you rest and revive your health.

2.  Keeping your phone case on while charging
Whenever your phone is charging, it typically emits heat. to avoid exposing your device to high temperatures, it is advisable to remove the phone case/pouch while you are charging so that the heat emitted from your phone can escape while charging. By this, you can prevent your device from getting hot and overheating when charging. 

NB: don't charge your phone at uncomfortable temperatures, this can permanently damage your battery.

3.  Charging your phone in the wrong places
Always mind where you charge your phone, because if you didn't take note of than, it can negatively affect your battery capacity. Normally, every phone have a range of temperature for which they can function normally and charging your phone in a hot area can raise the temperature and stress the battery out.


4.  Charging your phone overnight
The range of time for sleeping throughout the night is mostly between 5-8 hrs, and your smartphone battery typically needs 2-3 hrs to fully charge. Charging your smartphone overnight constantly stress the battery each night. very soon, your phone will develop battery problems. Also, the temperature will rise when the battery is overcharged. Now, apart from shortening battery life, it can also threaten your safety, it can easily explode after getting over heated. It is better to charge before you sleep and avoid charging overnight.





5.  Plugging whatever charger fits
This, especially applies to smartphones. Most smartphones users use a micro USB as charger and for this reasons, most people tend to switch and swap chargers since they fit into and work on their phones. However, this is not appropriate and in the end, it can negatively affect your phone battery. The fact that most smartphones have the same micro USB doesn’t mean all chargers and phones are compatible. Some chargers function differently and that difference can be detrimental to your device if care is not taken.
