I have observed something in my mobile which I am certainly sure that my observation is correct. I am writing this to know more about charging behavior of mobile with different chargers. When I try to charge my mobile with less current chargers, they take around 4 hours to charge 100% but the battery drains a way faster in them. But when I charge my mobile using the high current ones, the battery lasts for two days I mean almost double battery life? Is my observation logical? Any reason for this behavior?
Charging problem in Nokia mobile with different chargers
You have a point with your observations. Today’s smartphone chargers are noted to be 5.3V or 2.0A and it charges faster, although the cable may be that long. Today’s smartphones also use up so much power in that, once a day charging of its battery is not enough and at times, when one uses his smartphone rigorously, he has no option than to be in search for a power to charge the device before the set or expected time of the day. There are in actual fact, certain stuffs which are worth noticeable when it comes to the use of charging adapters in charging smartphones. Manufacturers of batteries will caution and discourage you not to discharge your rechargeable battery fully to an extent that it carries no charge at all. The understanding is that it could damage or ruin the battery. Many smartphones today, with advanced electronic circuitry do turn themselves off as soon as the battery runs down. In one case a battery recharged fully, requires no charging via another recharge phase to gain extra charge before use. It is advisable that battery of smartphones, which are fully charged and are switched to trickle charge mode as some charging adapters do, should not be left on for an indefinite period of time. Another important fact worth noticed is that there is a rationale behind why manufacturers of phones in general do design a specific USB adapter for each phone developed. I therefore recommend that you keep the original charger intended for the device and not just swap or replace it with just any one. Swapping adaptors among phones can possibly create a mix-match in terms of electrical energy (ampere, watts, volts) usage. In case the charging adaptor gets spoilt, remember to look for a fine print on it which gives vital data of the adaptor and replace it with same. Understand that when you also charge your smartphone through your laptop or PC for instance, can slow down the charging duration rate. Hence consequently, always stick to the use of adapters with 2.0A ratings and possibly with a higher voltage not less 5.0V but also not more than 5.5V: this might cause damage to the battery of the smartphone. Always fight the urge of using your smartphone while charging to enable it charge faster.
