Like laptops, smartphones also come equipped with a universal charging interface (MicroUSB port). But if you use a charger that does not match the original, then the battery starts getting damaged.

The battery of the phone gets a little hot during charging. If there is a cover on the phone then it becomes an obstacle in the middle of this process. In such a situation, it is suggested to separate the cover of the phone and keep the phone on a soft cloth. This protects the battery as well as the display of the phone.

Nowadays most of the smartphones are coming with fast charging technology but fast charging is not suitable for every phone. Actually, in fast charging, more voltage is delivered directly to the phone, due to which the temperature suddenly starts rising rapidly. We would suggest opting for simple charging for normal phones. Also, choose the charger based on the features of the phone. If your phone suddenly gets hot, press and hold the Power button until the display turns off. After this, turn on the phone only when its temperature comes down to room temperature.

Experts suggest that never put the phone on charging again and again. Only plug the charger in when the phone’s battery level is at or below 20 percent. Repeated, untimely charging puts both the phone and the battery at risk of damage. Try to charge the phone only when the power is exhausted.

Prefer such a power bank, which has been given control feature of aspects like voltage, short circuit, over charging. Such chargers do not damage the battery of the phone and are also useful to the user in adverse circumstances.
