Here is why your smartphone should not be kept on charging overnight


Do you plug in your phone before going to bed at night, thinking your phone will be fully charged when you will wake up next day? But do you think this is a good idea? Well, that depends.

Many people don’t like to keep their phones for much longer than two years. If that sounds like you, feel free to charge every night, and as often as you like in between. Because you are not going to notice the damage it causes to your phone batteries.

Frequent charging takes a toll on the lithium-ion batteries in our smartphones. And it’s not because they can be overcharged, smartphones are in fact smart, they know when to stop charging.

Here’s why:
Many smartphones make use of a technology that allows their batteries to accept more current faster. The technology enables phones to adjust to the amount of charge that a charger is capable of supplying. It allows power to pulse into the battery in specific modulations, increasing the speed at which the lithium-ions in the battery travel from one side to the other and causing the battery to charge more quickly. But this process also leads lithium-ion (and lithium-polymer) batteries to corrode faster than they otherwise would.

Is there a solution?

People looking to preserve their batteries should make sure their phones don’t become overheated, Campos advised, because high temperatures further excite the lithium-ion in batteries, leading to even quicker deterioration. Apple’s website says temperatures above 35 degrees Celsius can “permanently damage battery capacity.
