As a modern people who can't do without the phone, it is a very serious problem that your phone is out of power, especially when you're ready to go out. It is the time that you want your phone to charge faster and faster. Here we recommend some little tips for you to charge your phone faster whether your phone is equipped with fast charge function or not.
1. Turn Airplane Mode On
Airplane mode is really a very useful function. As we mentioned in previous articles, if you don't want to shut down your phone before you go to bed, you can turn on the airplane mode, so that you won't be disturbed by messages and calls and there is no electromagnetic radiation.
Of course, this action can also save power and make charging fast. Because your phone doesn't receive or transmit signals under this mode, like be in sleep mode, charging is becoming more efficient.
2. Disable Some Less-Used Functions
Bluetooth and GPS also consume a lot of power, so it's best to turn them off when you're not using them. There are also other Apps you've never used or don't even know how to use, such as Email and “Siri”; you can disable them for fast charging.
3. Do Not Charge Through USB Port
Have you ever found that charging your phone through a USB port on your computer or car can be especially slow? The reason is that the current provided by these USB ports is usually only 0.5A, while the standard current for charging the phone is generally 1A. So how can it be possible to charge the phone only with a “small pipe” quickly? What’s more, long-term charging in this way may damage the battery of your phone.
If you're in hurry to charge, remember not to use a USB port. In addition, using shorter charging cables can theoretically charge faster because of their lower current loss.
4. Clean the Charging Port
If you have tried the above-mentioned methods, the charging speed of the phone is still very slow. Before considering whether there is something wrong with the battery, you can first check whether the charging port is blocked due to accumulating dust. Use a toothpick or paper clip, cover the tip with cotton, and then stick it into the charging port to clean out the dirt.
5. Avoid the Phone Being Too Cold
The too low ambient temperature can also affect the use of phone battery. Therefore if you want to charge fast, remember to keep the phone warm, put it in the pocket or get a phone case on.
6. Choose the Right Power Adapter
If you want to charge fast, it is essential to choose a power adapter supporting fast charging function, especially for phones equipped with fast charging. For example, if your phone supports Quick Charge 3.0, you can use a Quick Charge 3.0 power adapter to charge your phone.
Let’s take iPhone 8 series and iPhone X series for example. These two kinds of phone can support fast charge, but the provided original power adapter only 5W power. In this case, you need a 30W PD power adapter and a USB-C to Lightning cable to charge your phone fast. You can find the PD power adapter and charging cable on UGREEN online platforms.
