Charge your mobile phone faster

Your top-of the-line mobile phone is only as effective as the amount of battery charge in it. As someone rightly said, a phone without juice is just a brick! Knowing how to charge your phone is key to making it last through the day. It also means greater efficiency and lesser stress for you – after all, not everyone packs a power bank. While most new phones have the fast-charging feature, charging an older model – with the battery on its last legs – can take up to a few hours to top up. Here are some simple and very basic tips that will help you charge your phone quickly.

1.Turn it off

Power down your phone before you connect it to the charging cable. This stops apps from running in the background as it charges, giving the phone an even, uninterrupted and quicker charge.


2.Switch to airplane mode

Don’t wish to switch off your phone entirely? Turning it on to airplane mode reduces the drain on the battery by disabling data networks, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. With the phone having to perform fewer tasks, it will charge faster. Just remember, you won’t be able to send or receive calls or messages.

3.Find a wall

Compared to connecting your phone to a laptop, gaming console, charging brick, car charger, an extended connection or a wireless charger; plugging your phone directly into a power connection in a wall is the fastest way to top up. Mains connections give twice the output and hence take a fraction of the time to charge the battery.

4.Control the temperature

Keep your phone cool while it charges. Remove the cover, keep it out of direct sunlight and place it away from heat sources like radiators. High temperatures are not conducive to battery health and will eventually affect the life of your phone adversely.


5.Use the right charger

Chargers with higher wattage help to power up your phone quicker. The original charger may or may not be a fast charger, so consider buying one. Arm yourself with the right adapter and cable, because one is ineffective without the other. You must also check compatibility with your phone before attaching it to a new charger.

6.Be patient

If you keep switching your phone on as it charges, the battery is going to take longer to top up. Every usage drains battery, increasing charge time. Leave it alone and you’ll have it juiced up before you know it!

Though these tips are applicable to both new and old phones, they are more effective when the phone/battery is new. If your phone has done a few years, it is best to upgrade to the next model for better battery life and phone performance.
