Phone Charging Hacks!

We are in an era wherein it is always a must to have our phones with us whenever and wherever we go. Most of us become lifeless whenever we do not bring our phones with us- worst is if we brought our phone its battery is dead. I suddenly remember the time when I had my very first phone- a Nokia 3310; the forefather of all mobile phones. This phone has a super long battery life and I remember charging this phone for like 2x a WEEK!

Phone batteries today- smartphone batteries to be exact- tend to lose charge easily. Just imagine how much consumption the crisp color displays these phones provide their users. Much more if users use their mobile data, wifi, and other applications - these apps eat tons of charge in a phone battery.

Days ago, my cousin visited me at our house. The whole time she was at home, she was all over her phone and the moment her phone battery died, she almost lost her life as well. Good thing we both own the same phone and I allowed her to use my charger. Then she asked me a question, “what are the ways to charge cellphones faster?”.

What are ways to charge phones faster really? Well, do not fret, I will enumerate some ways to help you guys charge your mobile phones faster so you can enjoy your day with your beloved phones

1. Airplane mode

This tip is too mainstream, I know, but it really helps. It helps you charge 2-3x faster than usual because you are also turning off all radio transmissions, signals, location and data that eats up a portion of your battery’s charge.

2. Do not download “Fast Charging”/ “Energy saving” App and the likes

This is a big no no! They never work because these apps tend to eat up your phone charge as well! As much as I am know, there are no apps that charges your phones up faster and majority of the tech bloggers I know do not recommend the use of these kinds of application because of the reason I mentioned.

3. Use Fast Charging Cables

Most tech bloggers will recommend using original charger rather than using 3rd party charging cables. However there are exceptions- as long as the power adapter is charging at the right rate as your original charger that came with your phone. I recommend using the Magneto Cable or the Zebra Cable from Widget City.

Magneto Cable is best used by Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC, and Nokia. It can also be used by iPhone users!

This cable comes in two colors, Gold and Silver and its cable is intricately wrapped by a super durable cloth-like fiber. It has two recievers for both Apple and Android users, USB to Magnetic Cable and its magnetic connector can be used as an anti-dust plug, and its cable length is 3.28 ft long.
Zebra cable on the other hand boosts its cable’s ultra strength as well as length which is 2 meters long! It has 2 in 1 lightning cable data transmission and charging cable for both Android and IOS users. It also has a strap to keep your charging cable tangle free! 

4. Leave your phone alone while charging

Please be patient. Part from your phone once a while- at least while charging! Not only will your phone charge faster, it will also protect your battery’s life.
