You've been doing it all wrong
IPhone, Battery Life, Charger, Smartphone

We’ve all experienced the ordeal of hastily trying to charge your phone before leaving the comfort of your home.

Before you leave, you check the life percentage and you can’t believe what you’re seeing; it only went up 2%?!

You’re probably making a few of these mistakes that are preventing your iPhone from recharging its battery life as quickly as possible.

The Charger

Your first biggest mistake is probably charging your iPhone on your desktop. This is simply much slower than a wall charger and will also drain your computer unless it too is plugged in.

Find the best wall charger for your phone. The one that comes with your iPhone, especially with the newer models, isn’t always the fastest one so look into investing into a more efficient one.

Switch It Off

This is the best way to make sure all the energy is going into the battery and not being used up on the performance of background tasks.

These include automatic downloads and updates, app refreshes and even screen display.

Airplane Mode

Powering off isn’t always an option though.

So, in this event, try putting your on Airplane mode instead. This turns off your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and data which are drains on the battery.

Leave It Alone

This one is pretty self-explanatory; it’s difficult for your iPhone to refill on battery juice if you’re using it all up.

You can resist checking Instagram for a few minutes.

Cycle the Battery

Sometimes it’s just best to let it die. Literally. It helps the charging efficiency of your battery if every now and then you actually let it shut down completely.
