4 Ways To Make Your Smartphone Charger Last Longer


I suddenly heard the sound of a spark and the air smelt like where incense was being burnt so I rushed into the room to check what made the sound, the home theater was still playing music and everything seemed to be okay. In the midst of my confusion, I heard the dreaded low battery sound and I remembered that I had plugged in my phone with a new charger. My heart sunk.

It was the third charger I bought in 2 weeks. Each of the chargers cost N2500. I could sense my village people dancing because of the charger. #Softwork. It was downright painful but I still had to go and buy another charger. The fourth one. 😭😭...

Chargers are the most necessary smartphone accessories that we can't do without but sometimes the chargers don't even last up to 2 months before it develops issues.

It's either you have to bend the cord in order for your device to charge or the cord has simply stopped responding, it could even be charging extremely slowly.

It could even be worse ; it got burnt. In any way, there are different ways to make your charger last longer.

1.Use A Surge Protector

Surge protectors are not too expensive. These devices will help keep your charger and other home appliances safe when the Electricity Company decides to play games with your electricity. During current fluctuations it makes you very sure that nothing will get damaged as the surge protector will handle it effectively and if anything should get damaged, it's the surge protector that'll get spoilt first which saves you from buying another charger. Surge protectors normally cost between N850 - N6000 depending on the type you can afford. I'd advise that you don't be a cheapskate and go for the cheapest one because you won't like the outcome definitely. You can get the ones from N1500 and above.

2.When Charging Don't Stretch The Charger Too Much

The essence of this is to actually protect your charging port. This happened to me once and I felt like crying. It spoilt my charging port. If you are charging your phone in a public place like a barber's shop, don't let your cord stretch across the whole place. Someone may just walk across the shop and unknowingly match the cord and different things could happen. Your charger will definitely get weak because of this. Something worse could even happen like your charging port spoiling or your phone flying off your hands and smashing it's screen.

3.Always Unplug Your Charger From The Head
Never grab your charger by its cord and try to unplug it that way. It may work, and it may just seem like you aren’t really doing any damage, but over time the tension will cause irreparable internal damage.

4.Always Keep It Dry

Always keep it away from sources of water. Don’t charge in your kitchen, don’t charge in your bathroom, and always clean spills right away

If you follow these four rules, you'll be able to use your charger for quite a long time.

My Recommendation
If you want your android smartphone to charge fast, I think you should get a blackberry Playbook charger
