Otherwise, it can have consequences for your wallet.
Premature wear of your device, excessive consumption of electricity…
This is what happens when you don’t pay attention to how you charge the laptop.
And it’s the same for tablets, laptops, or other small electronic devices.
But then, what are the best practices will you tell me? Well I tell you all about it.
Discover how to properly charge your phone while saving energy. Look :
1. Unplug the charger when the battery is charged
We start with a bad habit that we all have and which can cost us dearly at the end of the year!
That of leaving the phone connected continuously even when it is fully charged.
We often do this at night.
Before going to bed, we plug in the laptop and unplug it the next morning.
Well this is very bad practice.
On the one hand, it consumes too much electricity.
But in addition, doing this greatly reduces the life expectancy of the phone, especially the battery.
2. Remove the charger from the socket
Another bad habit to banish, that of leaving the charger plugged into an outlet without the phone at the end.
Let me explain.
Often, when the laptop has finished charging, it is unplugged, but the charger is left on the mains socket.
Well, that consumes energy unnecessarily.
And yes, even unplugged, the charger continues to consume electricity!
So, once charging is complete, remove the charger from the socket.
3. Don’t let the phone completely discharge
You probably don’t know this, but letting your phone completely discharge is not a good thing.
You know why ?
Because a completely discharged battery requires much more energy to recharge.
As a result, we wait longer for the charge to be done and therefore it consumes more electricity.
And then it’s also the battery that takes a hit; it wears out much faster.
The good method is to recharge the laptop as soon as it is between 10 and 20% charged.
4. Charge the phone in airplane mode
Charging your phone in airplane mode only has advantages.
Already, it allows not to consume electricity unnecessarily, since the battery is only slightly used in this mode.
Then, because the phone charges much fasterwhich again saves you electricity.
There are also other ways to charge the phone faster by applying these tricks.
5. Activate the « energy saving » mode
When the battery starts to run low, many phones offer you to switch to « power saving » mode.
This allows the battery to last longer, because application updates are no longer being made.
Well, know that you can activate this option in the phone settings just before recharging the mobile.
On iPhone for example, go to « Settings », « Battery » then activate the « Energy saving mode » button.
This little trick allows you to charge the phone faster and therefore consume less energy.
6. Charge the phone with a programmable socket
Have you ever thought about charging your electrical devices with a programmable socket ?
You know what it is ?
It’s an ordinary electrical outlet, except that it’s equipped with a timer.
The advantage of this type of grip is that you can program the time when the charge of the portable must stop.
For example, you plug in the phone at 8:00 p.m., and you tell the plug to stop at 9:30 p.m.
That way, you don’t have to think about taking care of it, the charge stops by itself.
This socket allows you to save energy.
7. Charge your phone at work
For this trick to work, you don’t have to tell your boss anything; hush!
Because as mentioned in the title, the idea is to recharge your mobile everywhere, except at home.
And what could be better than doing it at work when you know you spend most of your days there.
Do the same in public places (shopping malls), restaurant or hotel.
Also take the opportunity to recharge your external battery !
That way, once back home, you don’t need to use your electricity.
You connect the external battery to your phone, which extends its operating time. Smart no?
