You’re mistakenly charging your iPhone – and it could be wasting HOURS

Do you find yourself constantly having to charge your iPhone, especially if you’ve been using it for a while? Chances are you’ve charged it by mistake.

When compared to older models, the rechargeable batteries of today’s iPhones are certainly impressive, however, they hardly last as long.

Aside from the obvious limitations of rechargeable smartphone batteries, most people don’t charge their iPhones properly.

Do not charge your iPhone by any means

Learn showed that charging an iPhone’s lithium-ion battery to 100 percent actually damages it.

As a result, this reduces its lifespan, giving you fewer charges.

While the data vary on what percentage you should aim for, the general consensus, in this case, seems to be as low as possible.

Many people seem to think that 80% is the number to strive for when charging your phone because your phone goes up even further requiring its battery to use a higher voltage.

When the phone uses this high voltage, the battery will be damaged the most.

Stop turbo charging

Fast chargers, or “turbo” chargers exist, and while they may seem like a lifesaver, they can do more harm than good when it comes to your phone’s battery.

In other words, turbo phone chargers work by increasing the number of watts (W) delivered to the phone’s battery.

This increases the voltage used by the phone’s battery while also heating it up – two factors that reduce its lifespan.

While we can’t deny that turbo phone chargers are handy, they should only be used for short periods of time and only if your phone’s battery is below 50 percent.

Furthermore, you should not leave your phone plugged in to the turbo charger overnight.

Do not use iPhone while it is charging

However, it is very tempting to use our iPhone while it is connected to the charger, which can be extremely damaging to its battery.

There is convincing evidence that using a phone while it is charging can not only shorten battery life, but also disrupt the charging cycle.

This is especially the case if you are using your phone to play games or watch videos, which are considered processor-intensive tasks.

Keep your iPhone cool

The last thing you want to do to preserve your iPhone battery is to keep it cool as often as possible.

Not only will this help preserve battery life, but it will also improve the overall functionality and longevity of your iPhone.

For charging specifically, this could be like keeping the iPhone in a well-ventilated place, or maybe even taking it out of the box while it’s back on.

Also, you’ll want to avoid placing your phone on a hot panel or under a pillow while sleeping.
