20 Tricks to Charge Phone Battery Faster and Safer These days, people need 4 things to survive: food, water, air, and phone charging. And YouTube – oh, that’s five. Anyway, we want our phones to charge as fast as possible, even if it means messing up our little digital friends! Well, there’s a right way to charge your gadgets fast so they serve you longer–
and there’s some wrong ways! Avoid the myths and try these tips! 1. The quickest way to juice up is to turnthe phone off. The battery won’t spend any energy at all and will charge faster. 2. The phone also charges faster in AirplaneMode because it disconnects all communication channels. That way, the battery isn’t jugglingthe
task of sending and receiving signals while it’s getting some much-needed refreshment. 3. If you can’t go without Internet whileyou’re phone’s charging, at least try to stick to Wi-Fi. It’s more energy-efficientthan using your mobile network. 4. Turn off the sound so the charge lastslonger, and don’t forget the vibration! It’s a real energy waster. 5. The phone will charge much quicker if youdo it
through an outlet. Of course, you can use USB to charge it through the computerand car, but you’ll have to wait longer. 6. Use an original charger from the manufacturer.It perfectly matches the characteristics of your particular phone. Cheaper and unknowncharging devices can ruin the battery. There have even been cases when batteries caughtfire because of a poor-quality charger! 7. If you head out and don’t take your laptopwith you to a cafe, on a trip, or to
work, it’s best if you remove the battery. Thatway, it’s not sitting there all alone using power. Put it back in when you take your computerwith you somewhere. 8. Still, it’s not good to constantly keepthe battery without work, so try to discharge and charge it at least once a week. Unlessyou’re a MacBook user – then you don’t have to. 9. The windowsill next to your bed or chairmight seem like a
convenient place to lay your charging phone, but don’t do it. Evenif it’s not charging, keep your phone out of direct sunlight or frost. The battery drainsfaster at these temperatures. Room temperature is best. 10. Same goes for your laptop. In winter,when you come home packing your computer bag in with you, let the laptop warm up a bitin the room before you use it. Don’t let it overheat or freeze either. 11. On average, a phone charges up fully after1½ to 3 hours.
But there is a way to charge it up to 79% in about 15-30 minutes – thatwould be a quick charge feature. The battery in any phone is designed to receive a certaincurrent strength, and blocks any excess flow of energy. But not with fast charging. Yourphone quickly goes up to 79%, but then this function stops, and the amperage goes in limitedmode again. This is done intentionally to not damage the battery. 1
2. If you have an iPad, then use its chargingadapter if you want to charge your iPhone faster. Or you can find a special fast-chargingadapter for Apple Phones. 13. Your phone feels really hot and stuffyin a case, so remove it when it’s juicing up. The battery heats up during the charge.It’s better for this heat to freely escape through the phone body, and not accumulateinside the case. 14. Wireless chargers aren’t nearly as effectiveas conventional ones when it comes to speed. Yes, it’s convenient and looks nice withouta bunch of cords hanging all over the place. But if you need to charge your phone quickly,then wireless charging is a no-go. 15. Always work with your laptop on a flatsurface. Heat should flow out of it evenly and freely. When you put it on
your lap orlay it on a bed or pillow, it seriously overheats and ruins the battery. 16. There are so many tips on the Internetabout how to charge your phone “in just 10 seconds!” using anything from aluminumfoil to lemons! Manufacturers don’t recommend any of these half-baked ideas. Don’t fallfor the online hype – you could e
nd up doing permanent damage to the battery and phone! 17. If you have an older phone, unplug itwhen the battery’s fully charged. Charging a charged phone keeps the battery under stress.It’s like with muscles – they should rest after an intense workout. Without that, thebattery capacity will decrease noticeably after a year of such excessive overload, andthe phone will start losing juice faster. 18. If you have a newer phone, it’s notsuch a big worry. The latest models have a
built-in feature that blocks the chargingas soon as the battery’s at 100%. 19. Charge the phone as often as possible,but little by little. If you charge it to 100% and use the gadget until it’s completelydrained, then the battery will withstand about 500-700 recharge cycles. If you let it godown to 50% and plug it in for a short time, let it run down a bit again, and so on – yourbattery will withstand about 1,000 cycles. This comes to about 3 years if you chargethe phone every day.
The ideal level is always keeping the phone between 40 and 80%. 20. Still, you should “train” your batterycapacity once a month. You do that by letting it run down to 0% and then fully chargingit up to 100. This “exercise” will help calibrate the mechanisms that are responsiblefor the correct display charge level. But, again, don’t do this often because it canshorten your battery’s lifespan.
21. Monitor the status of your battery. Youcan download apps for Android and iPhone that show you how worn out your battery is andwhat its peak performance stands at. The app will notify you when the time to change thebattery comes. Replace the battery on any of your devices at least once every 3-4 years.I know it can be pricey, but it’s worth it. 22. Don’t leave a laptop connected to thenetwork with a 100% charge when you aren’t working with it. And don’t charge it to100% every single time. Like with phones, keeping the battery
between 40 and 80% isideal. 23. There’s a myth that you shouldn’tuse your phone while it’s charging. If someone has problems with this, it most likely comesdown to a faulty (or non-original) charger. With the manufacturer-approved charger, everythingwill be fine. Just don’t overload the phone while it’s plugged in by playing heavy games,for instance. Scrolling your social media, answering
emails, and watching videos – perfectlyfine during charging. 24. Another common misconception is that youshould close all background apps to save power. But modern phones are designed so that backgroundapps don’t waste power. That, and when you launch a closed app, it drains much more energythan launching an app from the background. 25. For your laptop, it’s a little different.You should download apps that speed it up by closing useless background tasks and deletingunnecessary cache files. Just make sure you find a good-quality trustworthy program. Sorry,but the best ones aren’t free! 26. If your phone has an AMOLED or OLED-typescreen, you can save battery power significantly. 20 Tricks to Charge Phone Battery Faster and Safer
Just set a very black picture as the wallpaper.This display consists of Organic Light-Emitting Diode. Sounds fancy, but it basically emitslight when current passes through it. Black doesn’t let light come through (except whereyour icons are, of course), so the screen won’t light up and waste so much battery! 27. If you go outside, but can’t leave yourlaptop, then you can use solar battery charging. The downside is that the speed of your chargewill depend on the weather.
The brighter the sun, the faster the charge. Just don’t leavethe laptop directly in the sun. Cover it, or lay it under a tree in the shade. If it’shot even in the shade, then you can use a cooling pad. Ah, doing work, outside, under a tree, inthe shade, with a gentle breeze and a glass of lemonade. Can you picture that? Hmmm. Andthat,
