Since charging your phone is a daily routine, in certain situations, the device is charging slower than usual. What is the reason for slow charging?
Because of the revolution of smartphones, we have acquired habits like scheduling messages, using filters on Instagram and daily battery charging.
The routine of daily battery charging provides one advantage; you can check whether your phone is charging quickly or slowly. It is estimated that iPhone devices need between 2.5 to 3 hours of charging with the appropriate cable, depending on the model. Charging speed is not constant, as lithium-ion batteries do not like when you empty them completely or charge too much. So, when they reach an 80% charge level, charging slows down.
Accordingly, in this range, current consumption is slower. The capacity of Apple’s classic charger is 5W with 1 Amp current intensity. If you think it’s too slow, you can charge your iPhone with a 12W 2.4 Amp iPad Power Adapter or even with a new MacBook Charger. Although services claim that it is harmful to iPhone devices, this method has been officially confirmed by Apple.
Of course, if you still find charging too slow, you do not have to rush into the store to buy an iPad charger. All you have to do is turn off other factors that could slow down the charging of your iPhone. Logically, you should first check the charger, because fake chargers are not only slower charging, but they can damage your device.
In case you do not have Apple’s original Power Adapter, you can charge your device via the USB port on your computer. Using Lightning Docks is the most appropriate solution during operation, especially if you keep in mind that the outdated USB 2.0 standard will provide slower charging, while 3.1 or other Thunderbolt 3 standards will provide faster charging.
Do not forget about the cables, because if the Lightning cable seems damaged at first glance, this could cause slower charging. In this sense, false cables also cause similar problems. The color change at the end of the Lightning cable indicates contamination. If you find something like this on your Lightning cable, check the connector.
With a rapidly approaching flight, warm weather can also be detrimental to quick charging. Temperatures of 30-40 ° C heats up your phone. The batteries do not tolerate extreme temperatures, and the high temperature even destroys them. Since charging releases heat, it’s a bad idea to charge your iPhone on your car’s control panel during the summer months.
Luckily, Apple engineers have thought about this situation, so if you connect the cable to a cigarette lighter, charging stops automatically in a heated state.
All in all, if you want to charge your phone in the fastest and safest way, forget about fake chargers, take care of the purity of the Lightning cable and connectors and protect the device from overheating. The phone will remain in good condition and you will be able to sell it easily later, if you wish.
