Every year there are a small number cell-related deaths and injuries reported in the news. In 2015, there were a few cases of portable phone chargers also exploding. Below are some notable cases.
Heating is the first thing which will happen to your device in case you are using it while plugged in charging. So is it that you think, the heating of your Smartphone doesn’t requires much attention. Well you are wrong, if you are practicing this very often, kindly end it as soon as possible. Getting your Smartphone heated for a prolonged duration will lease to over-heating and you could simply compare and imagine as of what over-heating does to your car in a Layman’s terms. Some of these could probably happen to you:
- Lead to leakage of the harmful chemicals in the battery.
- Lead to explosion of your Smartphone’s battery.
- Could probably stop your phone from turning “ON”.
- Bulge in the size of your smartphone’s bat.
Possibility of Cable Damage
This is explanatory. Using your phone while charging will have you moving and changing positions. Doing this will have you twisting, flexing, pulling and shaking your charging cable, damaging it in the process. Though you can minimize this, you can never be careful enough.
Frequent pulling of your charging cable can also disrupt the flow of power, damage the connector and subsequently lead to bad connection. Combined with inherent heat from the battery, a bad connection can also result in increased heating of your phone during charge.
While charging your phone, you should avoid placing your phone close to your head. This is because your device emits (low-intensity) radiations which could cause brain damage in the long-run; when you habitually place your phone to your head while charging or receiving calls.
Technically there is a transfer of electronic charges in and out of the phone which creates a magnetic as well as hear field and an energy involved in this process. Some reports also have it that some part of the heart could be prone to damage. Additionally, placing the phone to your ear while charging could also lead to electrocution.
Avoid using your handset while you are charging your phone. Using the device in this mode will increase the internal temperatures and shorten battery life.
Avoid using third-party battery apps
Avoid using third-party battery apps. Most of them affect battery life negatively as they constantly run in the background, aggressively shut down other apps; some take over the lock screen to load advertisements and even recommend apps that will further optimise your smartphone. Also, do not fall for the browser ads that con you into installing an app because your phone is “apparently” low on memory.
