I think it’s a pretty good guess that the two scariest words for any cell phone user are “low battery”. Apart from getting it wet, getting a low power warning is the worst thing that can happen to your smartphone, and most of us are constantly aware of how our battery is doing and if it needs to be charged.
There are many misleading myths that evolved over time about charging your phone, most of them are completely wrong. These myths are not only false but can actually do more harm than good, and reduce the total life span of your battery. So for those of us who want to keep our phone battery charged as long as possible, these are the myths you should avoid.Myth: Off-brand chargers destroy batteries.
Truth: While not optimal, off-brand chargers are still fine for recharging your phone and will not have a significant influence on your battery’s life span. What you should be avoiding are brand knockoffs. Charging you phone with one of these will barely get the job done, reduce your battery’s maximum charge and endanger its ability to function.
