Using unknown chargers for smartphones is one of the common mistakes that users often make. It is worth noting that this situation is happening more and more after some manufacturers, including Apple, cut off the charger from the product package when selling it on the market.
According to experts, floating chargers can cause the device to overheat, affecting the life of the device, and in some cases causing an explosion. Therefore, experts recommend, users should choose chargers only from reputable manufacturers or brands.
Use the battery fully or charge it to 100% more often
Many users have a habit of plugging in the charger only when the device displays a message that the battery capacity is less than 20%. Meanwhile, others always charge the battery to 100%. Experts say that both cases are not good for battery life on smartphones.
According to experts, the batteries on smartphones will work most efficiently when they have a capacity between 20 and 90%. In fact, there is a case of lag in many smartphone models when the battery capacity is low.
Experts recommend that users not charge the device overnight or turn on the slow charging feature if the device supports it.
Use your phone while charging
Most smartphones today come with the ability to stop charging when the battery capacity reaches 100%. However, this does not mean that the charger has stopped working. When the user continues to use the smartphone, the charger will work again.
Therefore, experts advise users not to use the phone during the charging process. This action can cause the device to heat up quickly and even cause an explosion and greatly affect battery life.
The temperature is too high or too low
Temperature plays an important role in smartphone durability and battery life. According to experts, high temperatures can quickly degrade the battery, heat up the device, and affect the performance of the device. At the same time, if it is used in very low temperature conditions, the life of the battery and other components will also be affected.
