Should You Charge Your Phone 100%?

Hello everyone, Sudarshan here and today i'm going to talk about something that many of us often worry about and that is should we let our phone charge overnight or should we unplug it.

Well this dilemma exists because we have heard that it's not safe to charge a phone for long hours at ago and lot of people even fear that it might explode.

So let's address this concern straight away along with some best practices so that you can get the most out of your phone battery.

Should you leave your phone plugged in overnight?.

It's completely safe to let your phone charge overnight. given that your battery isn't faulty, one should  understand that the battery that comes embedded in the phone nowadays doesn't overcharge in fact once the battery is 100% it automatically stops start but here is a word of caution make sure that you're using a genuine charger because there have been cases of inexpensive and fake chargers catching fire, whenever possible use the charger that comes with the phone as it's tested checked and approved.

When it comes to phone charges avoid cheap alternatives while it's completely safe to charge the phone battery overnight but it might not be the smartest thing to do,  it's also a good idea to not charge it to a full 100% that's because the battery is under a lot of stress during the last 20% of charge and it can affect the battery's lifespan therefore it's advisable to charge it to 80%.

Here is another common myth that many people believe gives good results and that is charge your phone battery once it's fully drained, I say do not do this never wait for it to come down to 0% this too can adversely affect the battery's performance overtime charge it  when it's down to 20 or 30%, So an ideal situation is don't let it go below 20% and about 80% also when it comes to the lithium-ion battery the one in your phone you don't have to wait for it to drain or come down to a certain level you can charge it randomly let's say you charged 5% and unplug it then after an hour or so you try to 10% and unplug it again that's totally OK there is nothing wrong with partial charging in fact the short popups work the best for modern different batteries, whenever you charge your phone and especially leave it overnight it's recommended that you remove it out of the case during charging, also don't keep it under your pillow or a pile of books or any such thing if you keep doing this you can expect the phone to heat up which could be damaging for the battery in the longe term. Just keep these things in mind whenever you charge your phone next be it during the day or at night.
