Leaving your phone on the charger the next day can not only be frustrating, but it can also be harmful to your phone's battery life. A full charge can be detrimental to your battery's overall health, and it can also be a waste of energy. Here are the top 7 ways to keep from leaving your phone on the charger.
1) Use a Smart Charger
A smart charger will stop charging your phone once it reaches 100%, so you don't have to worry about leaving your phone on the charger for too long. Many smart chargers also have features such as sleep modes, which can help conserve energy when your phone is not in use.
2) Use a PRD
A PRD such as the Prox PRD® phone reminder device will alert you when you leave your phone behind reminding you that you need to go get it off the charger.
3) Use a Charging Stand
A charging stand can help you keep track of your phone and make it easier to unplug it once it's fully charged. By placing your phone on a stand, you'll be less likely to forget it on the charger, as you'll have a visual reminder that it needs to be unplugged.
4) Turn off Your Phone
If you are worried about leaving your phone on the charger overnight, consider turning it off before you go to bed. This will not only help you avoid overcharging your phone, but it can also help you get a better night's sleep.
5) Use a Timer
Many smartphones have a timer feature that you can use to set the time for your phone to stop charging. This can be a convenient and effective solution for people who forget to unplug their phone from the charger.
6) Get into a Routine
If you consistently forget to unplug your phone from the charger, consider getting into a routine. For example, you could unplug your phone every night before you go to bed, or every morning when you wake up. By establishing a routine, you'll be less likely to forget to unplug your phone from the charger.
7) Use a Battery Saving Mode
Many smartphones have a battery saving mode that you can use to conserve power when your phone is not in use. By enabling this mode, you can help ensure that your phone doesn't overcharge and that your battery lasts longer.
Leaving your phone on the charger overnight can be harmful to your phone's battery life and can be a waste of energy. By using a smart charger, using a PRD, using a charging stand, turning off your phone, using a timer, getting into a routine, and using a battery saving mode, you can avoid leaving your phone on the charger and keep your phone's battery healthy.
