When talking about battery life, there are always many little rules for what you can and can’t do with your smartphone. And actually there are some true and really exist.
Before we explore the charging “myth”, let’s have a look at the pic below.
Anyway, it will make you laugh at first; But then? Will you feel that the words “using phone while charging” and the scene are so familiar that it seems to be true for your daily charging life?
Yes. Most of us, I believe, are onto this case.
And at the same time, most of you are hearing that using phone while charging will not hurt the battery at all. True or False?
Common sense that when using phone while charging, that means you’re using power. And with no doubt that will simply slow down the charge.
More specifically, if you’re talking on the phone while charging, it will either slow down the charge or draw down the battery more slowly until you finally hang up. And then it resumes charging.
If you’re texting, that won’t use much power. However, watching videos or playing intensive games will use up the battery. It’s something like trying to fill up the car while driving it.
Will it only slow the charge while using and charging the phone at the same time? Nope, it additionally risks an explosion. In other words, using phone while charing may cause the phone to overheat, as the electronics inside the phone might overheat if the battery is also heating up. The simple solution is to turn off the phone and let it charge.
Low energy consumption like reading messages won’t overheat it. But what functions will exactly use the most phone battery?
Wi-Fi downloads, video chat and GPS are on the top.
Anyway, for faster charging, for safer charging, just leaving it alone while charging. That will help you lot, I’m sure.
