It's very simple to plug in your phone and sleep, wake up the next day to see your phone is fully charged.
But, is it really safe to charge your phone overnight? Don't you think you might be taking some risk? After a thorough research and discussion with phone technicians I have discovered the risk involved in charging your phone while sleeping here are some of them:
1. YOU'RE KILLING YOUR BATTERY
if you charge your phone all night and always, you are in a sense killing your battery with your bare hands. New batteries start to deteriorate immediately after being manufactured. The batteries that power your favorite mobile devices have a limited amount of time they can keep working, before they start draining faster. However, you may not realize that the more time your phone takes to suck in the charger, the faster the battery will drain. Turning it on for 8 hours every night respectively for about 4 months of the year will make your battery run down totally. Think of the charger as fatty junk food. It's still food, of course, but it's not really worth eating.
2. IT FORCES THE BATTERY TO BOUNCE BACK AND FORTH LIKE A PING PONG BALL
When your phone is fully charged, it will automatically stop charging, just like you would stop pouring beer before the glass overflows. However, even if the phone is not doing anything, the battery will not fully charge for a long time and will be discharged again. As soon as the minor charge disappears, the charger turns on again and sets the value back to 100.8 hours of mobile phone operation, this constant fluctuation lasts all night, and the agonizing passage every night will eventually drain your battery.
3. IT MIGHT CAUSE A FIRE IN YOUR HOUSE
Well, to be honest, this is not a common problem, but it is definitely scary. If you charge your phone at night, check it before bed and you may pass out by placing your phone under a pillow. The phone generates heat when turned on and also when being charged. Heat under pillows, blankets, and sheets can help to start a fire. Although infrequent, but it isn't advisable to charge your phone and place it on under your pillow while sleeping.
4. IT JUST DOESN'T TAKE TOO LONG TO CHARGE A PHONE
If I need to catch my flight at 12:00, will I arrive at the airport at 7:00? Obviously not. So why charge your phone for hours longer than necessary? According to research the average cell phone charge time ranges from 30 minutes to several hours, with the actual "longer" time starting when people charge their phones overnight. Of course, there is no such method yet, but there are still problems. Would it really be practical if modern cell phones could be charged in a matter of hours, and the resulting battery could be charged over a longer period of time?
