Do you charge your phone the right way?

When it comes to your phone, there are right ways and wrong ways to charge it. You want to make sure you charge your phone the correct way to ensure you are getting the most out of your battery life. Charging your phone too often or playing games while charging could worsen the battery life. To make sure you are charging your phone correctly, follow the information provided below.

Do not play games on your phone while it is charging. Believe it or not, there is an optimal temperature range for your phone to charge between. If your phone is too cold or too hot, your battery could degrade. Playing intensive games on your phone while it is charging is the worst thing you could do to your battery. You also need to avoid placing your phone underneath a pillow while it’s charging. This could cause the phone to overheat.

Another rule to follow is do not charge your phone overnight. Leave your phone unplugged overnight and charge it while you are getting ready in the morning.  Partial charges throughout the day are a better option for your phone than sitting overnight.

One of the best ways to create a longer lasting battery life is to only use partial charges to keep your battery between 20%-80%. You can also reduce the amount of time that your phone spends charging after it hits 100%. You can reduce this time by not charging it overnight. You will also create a long lasting battery by keeping your phone at room temperature.
