1. Leaving your phone out in the sun. Heat has always been one of the worst things for phones. Direct sunlight can cause it to get too hot and stress the battery, which will shorten the battery’s life and possibly damage it.

2. Charging your phone without turning it off: When people are in a hurry, they usually don’t follow this tip. If you don’t turn off your phone while it’s charging, it could hurt the battery or at least make it last less long. When you charge your phone, it works best if you turn it off. This lets the battery charge more efficiently.

3. Charging your phone too much: If you overcharge your phone, the battery is always charged to a higher power than usual. This makes the battery work harder than usual, which makes it wear out faster than usual. Once your phone is fully charged, it’s best to unplug it.

4. Charging with low-cost chargers: As a way to save money, many people are pulled to chargers that are cheap but not very good. But these chargers can hurt the battery in your phone and make it more likely to break down. It’s best to buy a good charger for your phone and use it.

5. Not unplugging the charging cable: If your phone is still tied to the charging cable after it is fully charged, it can cause the battery to overheat. This can hurt the battery, making it more likely to break down.

6. Not checking your phone’s battery often: Just like any other device, a smartphone needs to be maintained and cared for regularly to stay in good shape. One easy way to do this is to check the power of your battery. If you find mistakes, it’s best to have a professional look at it as soon as possible.

7. Not using the right charger: To charge properly, your phone needs the right kind of charger. If you don’t use the right one, it can affect how fast the battery charges, how long it lasts, and even the battery itself. It’s best to charge your phone with the one that came with it.

8. You don’t clean the ports on your charger. Like any other gadget, your phone’s ports can get dirty and dusty. If you don’t clean them often, your phone might stop working and charge slower.

9. Charging a phone without a surge protector. A surge protector is a must when charging any gadget, including a phone. It keeps your phone’s battery from being damaged by quick jumps in electricity.

10. Not using the settings that the phone’s maker recommends: When it comes to charging, different phones have different choices. For example, some phones may need the battery to be charged every so often to make the battery last longer.

If you mess up while charging your phone, the battery may not last as long as it should. It’s important to pay attention to how you charge your phone and to do everything you can to keep it in good shape. If you’re charging your phone differently than what the maker recommends, it’s best to find out what they say and do what they say for the best battery power and life…..CONTINUE READING
