Have you ever wonder why your phone charges at the best condition when you are using the charger which comes form the packaging? Do you feel frustrated? Ask this to yourself: “I plugged in my phone all night then why it wasn’t fully charged?”. Have you ever said to yourself why on earth your phone gets hot while charging?
Due to different charging circuitry of different devices, all of the questions aforementioned above happen.
For example, you can think of it as a handshake. Another example would be the device iPad which requires 2.4 amps, the Galaxy Note series which require 2 amps, while iPhones require 1 amp and etc. Different devices have different power profile especially when they are charging.
Not because there are universal chargers, it does not mean that it could provide efficient or safe charge to any device since they are not optimized for such purpose.
Having a charger with right charging circuitry could not just help you from getting frustrated but also prevent numerous problem to arise. Both excessive and low voltage cause problems. These problems can be the following: poor charging efficiency and wasted energy, it could shorten the battery life and damage the battery and device itself, excessive heating and increased charging times.
To assure safety and making sure that you are picking the right charger for your device like the smartphone or tablet. Then you must take and follow the following tips.
First and foremost you must use the original charger for your device. There is a reason that when you buy a new set of device it comes with a charger. Because the each device has its own required power and relationship with the charger to ensure a safe and proper charge.
Next is you must check the optimization of any device for the different type of charges. Since the device is different so with the charger of iPhone that will not work the same with the charger of an Android phone.
Next is you must use voltage protectors when charging any device. Our phones today are some of the most sophisticated electronic devices ever made, however the charger becomes cheaper compared to the past sales. Today, there are no offer for over-current and over-voltage protection and worse no power specifications to ensure that the device you are using is protected. The absence of short-circuit and over-voltage protection will cause the charger to overheat worse to burn and worst to cause damage to your device.
Then, you must take heed all these tips in choosing the right charger for your device.
