Here’s How to Charge Your Phone as Quickly as Possible
You’re set to start your day and oh no! Dead cell battery. Try these tricks and tip to juice your phone fast.
Get a powerful wireless charger
For a quick juice boost, look for a charger with high wattage. “The higher the number of watts, the faster your device will charge,” Macworld reports. The typical chargers that come with iPhones and older Android phones carry one amp of current and produce five watts of power, according to the consumer blog Techlicious. But “new rapid chargers with technology such as Quick Charge support two amps and 12 watts or more, potentially charging your phone up to four times faster.” Check out more cell phone accessories that will make your life easier.
Use an Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable
Got a half-hour to spare? If you have an iPhone 8 or later and an adapter, Apple’s USB-C Lightning Cable will allow you to charge your battery up to 50 percent of capacity. It’s compatible with Apple 18W, 29W, 30W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter.
Get a wireless charging pad
Though wired charging is faster, wireless charging is also a good option. The Samsung Wireless Charging Pad can work with phones including the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8, Techlicious notes.
Invest in a charging case
For an ongoing solution to keeping making sure you can charge your phone quickly, consider getting a charging case. Some models, such as the Apple Smart Battery Case, can extend your battery’s life for 22 hours. They come in a range of prices and designs. Are you someone who likes to take your phone on adventures? Some of the cases are made with protective materials. Now that you’re all charged up, find out some places you should never leave your phone.
