Things You Should Never Do While Charging Your Smartphone by Tarivanessa(f): 1:56pm On Apr 20, 2018
Charging our phones is a constant process we have to undergo, in as much as we desire to use and explore our devices, we also owe it a duty to ensure to maintain our most important mobile support device. Whenever you charge, ensure that your battery reaches at least 80% charge. It is not necessary that it should always be topped up to maximum.
All batteries have an expiry date. Same is true for smartphones' batteries as well. However, the way you use your smartphone also goes a long way in deciding the longevity of your device's battery.

Here, charging habits as well as the chargers you use also play an important role. You should never do the following while charging you device.
1. leaving your phone charging through the night is sure to hurt the battery's health in the long run.

2. Using cheap chargers are dangerous both for your smartphone and its battery.

3. Always charge your phone with its own charger. Unlike laptops, smartphones use a universal charging interface ¬ the microUSB port.

4. However, if the charger you use does not match the original, it will affect battery performance, capacity to store charge and overall life (if done repeatedly).

5. Always ensure that the replacement charger's output voltage (V) and current (Ampere) rating matches the original adapter or is approved by the phone's manufacturer.

Avoid cheap chargers from unknown manufacturers. They do not include any safety mechanisms to protect against fluctuation and over charging. Adapter failure could permanently damage the battery and phone.
It is recommended that you remove the phone's protective case while charging. It is natural for the battery to become slightly warm, but the case may act as a barrier and slow down heat dissipation. If possible, flip the phone over and place it on a soft cloth to protect the display.

thanks for the tips. No. 3 will help protect my new phone because that's exactly what I was doing with the Infinix phone I had previously.

Everything points to damage of batteries or the phone itself. Replaceable things. What about things that are not replaceable such as lives and body parts. There are activities one can indulge in while charging that can truly hurt us.

no 5 is totally true, people just have one bad charger and replace it with Samsung charger or infinix charger, worst part is you won't know when you battery starts getting bad and before you know it issa problem

Kudos OP but your no 1 ain't true.. Cos the more you try to prevent your phone from draining your battery.. The longer it's lifetime ... I mean nothing like overcharging on smartphones.. When your battery is full and your charger is still plugged in, your phone will simply shift power consumption to your charger. Hence your battery relaxes! In fact plug in your phone every slight chance you get .. It's good for battery s health..

Some phones naturally has bad battery life coupled with terrible chargers. That phone won't be full in 4hrs and even when full will drain in 1hr.

Charging your phone over night is not harmful to the phone.
This is 2018 & mobile phone makers know that users charge their phones overnight...once your phone gets to 100% it stops charging

Op....the phone was not called smart for fun. It was called smartphone because it is very intelligent. It has the capability to perform so many functions without ur input.

For your number one point, the smartphone will automatically shut down charging and stop receiving extra current once the battery if fully charge. So no damage will be done to your battery if u leave your phone charging over night.

In your points 2 to 5, you are just saying the same thing in different ways. The summary is just to make sure u use a good and standard charger that matches ur phone for charging.
