With the boom of the smartphone market, chances are that you currently own a smartphone too. You will as well agree that a smartphone will be useless without some battery juice to power it. So supposing you have a flat battery and suddenly bumped into a power source, you will definitely want to quickly slip out that charger to get some juice. This post describes how you can possibly make your smartphone charge faster.
1. User Original Chargers
While most smartphones can comfortably accept USB 2.0 cords as chargers, the amount of battery juice you accumulate will vary based on the originality of your charger or USB cable. With some USB cords you can get up to 10% charge within 5 minutes. While with some others, getting 5% may take up to 20 minutes.
2. Power off the Smartphone When Charging
Most people including myself have a habit of using their smartphones while it's on charge. Well the bad news is this will affect the level of battery juice you will accumulate. So if you want it fast, shut the phone down.
3. Activate Airplane Mode
If you cannot power off your device you can also activate the airplane mode. Becuase the less your phone is trying to perform tasks while it's charging, the more quickly it will recharge. Airplane mode blocks any wireless radios on your device, reducing your phone's capabilities and therefore stopping it from doing so much. No calls or messages will be received while it's in airplane mode, but it’s worth it to have a device that will stay on for the next few hours.
4. Turn off Mobile Data
Supposing you simply can't shut down your smartphone because you are probably expecting a call, you could speed up the charging rate by turning off your phone's mobile data as well as WI-FI.
5. Clear Off Unnecessary Features
Check your smartphone to see if you have any unnecessary features on, like Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, mobile hotspot or NFC, which could be using up battery power. Close all your apps as well and stop your phone from doing automatic backups or updating apps from the Google Play Store.
Therefore, stop making use of the phone and leave it till you finish charging.
With these tips you should be able to accumulate a reasonable percentage of battery juice the next time you bump into a power source and want to grab some quick battery juice.
