And if you indeed have such worries as well, then the short but definitely helpful blog I prepared is especially just for you! In this blog, I will share with you the safety guidelines you have to bear in mind when it comes to charging your smartphone and keeping your mind at ease every time your unit is plugged into the power socket. So without any further delays, let's get right into today's discussion…

Use Original or Certified Chargers Only

First and foremost, but most importantly, you need to buy chargers that are sold by the original brand or at least it was accredited by the brand to be used by the unit you currently own. The most important characteristic of an original brand is that you are assured that it won't cause any accidents or result in any damage to your smartphone. In addition, these phone charges have undergone an extensive and meticulous process of high level of quality control to ensure that aside from the charging working properly, they also test the unit for any defect that would lead to malfunctions. Of course, a set of type c charger is indeed more expensive than those from an obscure brand, but you are definitely getting a high-quality charger that you can rely on.

Remove the Charger from the Wall Socket is Not in Used

Leaving the charger brick plugged into the wall socket is a common practice nowadays because of how convenient it is to just pick up the cords and insert them into the smartphone. However, it is also not the safest practice because electricity is still flowing to the charging brick that could short-circuit at any point especially if you have a faulty electrical system at home or the charger itself is already wearing out. Despite the trend you are seeing over the internet, it is best not to leave them in the wall plug.

Turn the Mobile Phone Off or Disable Background Apps if the Unit Heats Significantly While Charging

Although you can use your phone while it is charging, It's a bad sign that your smart device increases temperature significantly during its charging period. It could mean that you are overloading your phone with tasks more than what it is capable of doing. But another reason why it is overheating may be due to a faulty battery. But no matter what the case may be, it causes the smartphone to charge the battery slower than expected, which would result in the charging brick increasing its temperature as well.

Final Thoughts

I hope the blog that I shared with you today has somehow helped you gain valuable insights on how to properly charge your smartphone with due diligence and presence of mind. Of course, the most important thing you have to consider among the list of tips I have shared is to invest in charges that are officially sold by the brand or at least certified by the mobile brand company. As discussed, they will indeed cost you more money compared to the cheaper varieties you find in the local market, but investing in certified chargers is worth your while considering the quality you'll get and the safety characteristic it can provide you that gives you the peace of mind that it won't damage your phone or explode like what you see in the social media.
