Here Are Reasons Why You Should Never Charge Your Phone Overnight
According to tech experts from ZDnet, it's BAD for your battery to charge your phone overnight.
This is something most people have heard, "never charge your phone overnight," but do they listen? No.
A quick google search on the subject would tell you, "Batteries decay from the moment you start using your new phone. This means they gradually lose their ability to hold a charge. By charging your phone overnight, you're increasing the amount of time it spends with the charger. As a result, it degrades the capacity much sooner."
Heat is also a killer of batteries. When your phone is charging, the battery heats up past room temperature, keeping the battery heated all night long will cause your battery to decay faster.
Here is how they say you should charge your phone on an average day to max out your battery's life:
Charge it for about 30 to 45 minutes in the morning when you wake up. Then charge it for another 30 minutes in the mid-afternoon to get it around 80%.
That way your phone is spending less than two hours a day on a charger.
Now that you are a little more educated on the subject, we suspect you will avoid charging your phone overnight for the next 3 days and then go back to your old habits.
Oh well, at least now you know why your phone doesn't hold a charge.
