Full battery is a happiness, but the fact is that we often complain about smartphone’s short battery life and the amount of time it takes to charge up. Although there is no secret sauce, the tips and tricks below can help you charge your iPhone faster than usual so you aren’t left with a brick in your hand. Read on.
Switch Off Your iPhone Or Switch Off The Right Settings
Screen is the biggest battery drain. If switch your iPhone off, it doesn’t have to look for Wi-Fi networks, hop on a 4G network or even mark its location on GPS, and the battery has to do nothing but charge itself. Another advice is to put your phone on Airplane Mode, and turn your screen’s brightness to its lowest setting and keep the screen off for as long as possible.
Use A Wall Charger, Not A USB Port
Our iPhone can be charged through the laptop’s USB port, but a lot slower. The first reason is that USB ports usually only charge at 0.5A, so it’s going to take more time compared to a 1A power adapter. Second, if you connect your iPhone to your Mac, for instance, it’s going to start syncing immediately, which causes your phone to charge even more slowly.
Use The Right Power Adapter and Cable
This can’t be stressed enough: the amp rating. The charger that comes with our iPhone has something like this written on it: 5.0V->1A. That 1 amp of current is what most smartphones need. If the charger has a higher amperage rating, the phone will charge at a faster rate. If the rating is lower than 1A, then our phone will charge slower than it probably should.
Keep It Cool
Smartphone batteries use lithium-ion, which follows a simple principle: a cooler battery is a better battery. So it’s smart to look for a cool spot, like the blast from a wall-unit air conditioner. Of course, none of this is needed if the average temperature in your room is already below 30 degrees Celsius.
Don’t Forget About iPhone External Battery
In fact, there has been many iPhone external battery in the market that can provide variety range of juice at 1A or more. The Kinkoo Infinite Nova 10500mAh portable external battery charger, for example, I have found that it can be a great way to keep charging your iPhone even after you are no longer near a plug point.
I think maybe this is the easiest way to follow, but what do you think of it? Would you rather use that over these tricks, or is it another iPhone external battery to carry around?
