Easy 5 Tips/Ways On How To Fix Slow Charging Problem/Issues On Your Smart Phones
Stay Away From Your Phone While Charging: Using your smartphone while charging is not healthy to your device. It put a negative impact on your Android’s battery life. It puts battery under heavy load and cause the device to heat up.And Also do the following.
- Close/End all the applications that are running
- Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS
Replace Your Battery: If you’ve been using your device for more than 1 year, and it takes more than 3hours to charge and less than 5hours to discharge, then it’s time to look for a replacement.
Avoid Charging From Powerbanks, Laptops or PC: A lot of us do this but while they can charge your device using USB ports, it is still not a best idea to do so. USB ports on Computers are meant for transferring data, they do not enough current for a device to charge. Hence, slow charging.
E.g Output Current of USB
- USB 2.0 can provide up to 500mA
- USB 3.0 can provide up to 900mA
Replace The Charging Cable: Many times, it is the micro-USB to USB cable that is the culprit. These cables lose their efficiency over time and therefore can’t provide enough current to charge the phone/device. Change the Micro-USB to cable. Either purchase a new original one or borrow the one that’s being used on other device.
Use Airplane Mode: Airplane mode on your smartphone can significantly improve the charging process by decreasing the charging time. The only disadvantage is that you would not be able to communicate with others through mobile network or internet.
By Observing the Above, You will surely Get A Faster Battery Charge without Experiencing Much Problem Or Issue with your Charging on your smart Phones.
