Have you noticed that your phone charged at its best when the charger being used comes with the packaging? Do you feel frustrated? Ask this to yourself: “I plugged in my phone all night then why it wasn’t fully charged?”. Or have you uttered these following words: “Wow! Why is it that my phone gets hot when I am charging it?”
Due to different charging circuitry of different devices, all of the questions aforementioned above happen.
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. These devices have different power profile especially when it comes to their charging capacity.
Universal chargers, as what they called it, work with any device but they are not made to provide enough or safe charge to any device.
Picking the charger with right charging circuitry is not just about avoiding frustrations but it is more about preventing the occurrence of any problem in the future. One of the things that can cause problems on the charger would be excessive and low voltage. Few of these problems that are likely to occur would be: poor efficiency in charging, waste of electrical energy, shortage battery life, can cause damage to the battery and also to the device itself, there would eb excessive heating and the time to charge the device would take long.
Based from the presented problems what would be the solutions just to make sure that you are picking the right charger for your device? Thus, you must make sure to follow these tips.
First and foremost you must use the original charger for your device. Thus, every new purchase of a device there comes with a charger with it. Due to different power requirement of the device and also the unique relationship of the charger, that is why every packaging comes with a charger.
Second thing to consider is to check the device whether the device is optimized for different types of charges. The devices are quite different from each other brand to brand, so the charger of an iPhone will not give the same charging capacity to 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.
