The truth is that today we have more and more apps on our phones. Social networking sites, games, applications. Some of them work in the background to check statuses or notifications. Additionally, such things as non-stop internet or geolocation are enabled. All this causes the battery of our phone to run out faster and faster. So how can I charge my iPhone or Android phone faster?
How to charge your phone faster
The first and easiest answer is to turn the phone off and connect it to the charger. It’s a little inferior method, because we won’t be able, for example, to check your friends’ status on facebook.
So the best way to charge your phone quickly is to connect it to the charger and switch on airplane mode! Why? Because most of the energy stored in the battery is used to power the communication modules – mostly the cellular network and WiFi modules (if on).
In airplane mode, the device is not connected to a cellular network, which means that information that is cyclically checked such as the quality of the connection, whether there are new messages, whether someone is calling us, etc. Is not being checked anymore. It is worth considering to disable all programs and features of the phone while charging such as bluetooth, GPS. Thanks to this, the energy that we “charge” will not be used.
Or maybe Quick Charge?
There is another answer to the question of how to charge your phone faster. The Quick Charge comes with help. It is Qualcomm’s technology and, recently a standard used by more and more manufacturers. This system can be found on some Samsung, HTC, ZTE, LG and Sony phones.
What does the Quick Charge mean? According to the manufacturer, charging the phone with Quick Charge 2.0 is 75% faster compared to traditional charging. The manufacturer announces that Quick Charge 3.0 chargers are even faster – up to 40% faster than Quick Charge 2.0.
On Qualcomm’s pages you can see which phones support Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0. Such chargers can already be obtained for about 15$.
