Are you trying to find a way to charge your phone faster? There are a number of simple things you can do to accomplish this, I will tell you what they are.
How To Charge Your Phone Faster:
To charge your phone faster here are some simple things you can do:
- Turn off your phone while it’s charging
- Switch to Airplane Mode while charging
- Do not use the phone while it’s charging
- Use a fast charger to charge the phone
- Use a battery pack to charge the phone
Turn Off Your Phone While It’s Charging:
This may be a difficult decision to make because you will not be able to use your phone to receive any phone calls or notifications while the phone is charging.
Nevertheless, turning your phone off while it’s charging will make it charge much faster due to the fact that the battery isn’t being used.
Switch To Airplane Mode:
One of the best ways to charge your phone faster is by turning on Airplane Mode before you charge your phone.
When these features are running in the background, they have a tendency to consume your battery’s resources, even when you’re not using your phone.
- From the home screen go to Settings
- Tap Airplane Mode or slide the toggle to On depending on your phone
After following those steps Airplane mode should be turned on, when it’s on you will notice a small airplane icon at the top of the display screen.
However, you should be aware that when you switch to Airplane mode you will not be able to send or receive text messages, make or receive phone calls, or use data until you revert back to your phone’s standard settings.
Charge The Phone With A Wall Charger:
When charging your phone with a wall charger, for best results you should use the wall charger that came with your phone when you bought it.
A charger that was made by the manufacturer of your phone to work with your phone will do a much better job of charging it than a standard third-party charger, even though both chargers may look alike.
Be Careful If You’re Using Third-Party Chargers:
There are some imitation chargers that may look like the real thing, however, these chargers have a tendency to overheat the phone and they have also been linked to electrocutions.
These chargers are cheaper and they may look authentic, but you should avoid using these chargers at all costs.
Charging Your Phone From Your Computer:
Many people will often charge their phones from their computers because it’s extremely convenient to do so.
This isn’t bad for the phone in any way, but the problem with this is the power output from a USB port is significantly lower than that of the wall charger that comes with a phone.
As a result of this, it will take hours to charge your phone when doing it this way. Another option is to get a specially designed cable that has two male USB connectors and one micro USB connector.
This will give you the ability to charge your phone using power from two USB ports simultaneously.
However, if you have an iPhone and a relatively new iMac or Macbook you will not have these problems.
Apple products were made in such a way that they will recognize an iPhone when it’s connected and will automatically increase the power output to speed up the charging process.
Using A Fast Battery Charger:
If you feel as though the wall charger that came with your phone takes too long to charge it.
Then you should consider getting a quick charging accessory such as Samsung’s Fast Charging wall charger or HTC’S Rapid Charger, only if your phone is compatible with one of these chargers.
However, all relatively new Android phones have extra-fast charging capabilities which give you the ability to charge your phone at a faster rate.
The majority of the fast battery chargers can charge your phone 1.4 times faster than the standard wall charger.
However, you may notice that using a fast battery charger may heat up the phone much more than that of the standard wall charger.
Use A Battery Pack To Charge Your Phone:
You can invest in an external battery pack that you can use in the event of an emergency when your battery is low and you can’t get to a power outlet to charge it.
There are also a variety of cell phone cases that double as chargers for your phone. This is another great solution that can help you in the event of an emergency.
There are some battery cases that will give you approximately 60% more battery life and there are others that can double the battery life.
These options will not help you to charge your phone faster but they will stop your battery from dying when it’s running low and you can’t get to a power outlet to charge it.
My Final Thought:
Even though some of the tips I listed above will help you to charge your phone faster you must know that I do not recommend doing these things on a daily basis.
Charging your phone slow is much better for the lifespan of your cell phone’s battery.
