Tired of Your phone killing chargers?(5 Reasons)

If you’re like most people, you have probably had the experience of your phone charger dying after just a few months and you buy a new the same thing is repeated.

This can make you assume that the phone is at fault and there is something wrong with it. The phone is killing my charger and cables. Even though it’s just rare that the phone causes such a problem but you might be right.

In this blog post, we will discuss five reasons why your phone might be damaging or killing your charger. We will also provide some tips on how to fix the problem!

1-Cheap Quality charger

The first reason why your phone might be damaging your charger is that you are just buying a cheap low quality charger from amazon with no authentication.

When you buy such a charger not only it can damage the phone, but it is also more likely to break or malfunction after a few months of use.

Chargers that are made with cheap materials are also more likely to overheat, which can damage your phone or cause a fire.

To avoid this problem, you should always buy chargers from reputable brands. You should also look for chargers that are made with high-quality materials.

2-Low Voltage

Another reason why your phone might be damaging your charger is that the voltage of the charger is not compatible with your phone.

Most phones require a charger with a voltage of between five and six volts. If you’re using a charger that is supplying less voltage than what the phone requires can damage the power supply.

Take a look at the output voltage of your charger and make sure it is compatible with your phone. If not, you should consider buying a new one because this might be the reason.

3-Low current or Amp

The current or amperage is also an important factor to consider when you’re using a charger. The phone requires a certain amount of current to charge properly.

Chargers that have a lower current output can also cause your phone to take longer to charge.

Not only supplying a phone with low amperage than it requires is bad it is also not good for the charger. Because the phone is trying to pull more amp than the charger is capable to provide, it will put a load on the charger and eventually kill it.

Just check if the charger is capable to meet the power requirements of the phone. You should always use a charger that supplies either higher or the same amount of amperage that the phone requires.

4-House electricity Voltage

The house voltage or the input voltage might be the reason behind it, not the phone. The amount of voltage entering the charger is higher than what the charger needs. Most charger requires a constant input of 110-240 volts to function properly.

But if the voltage in your house is higher than what the charger can consume or it fluctuates a lot, This can cause a short circuit and cause the charger to stop working.

The easiest way to check this is to use a multimeter to measure the voltage in your house or in a socket that you commonly use to charge your phone.

5-Bad cable

All cables are not equal and bargain cables could be causing the problem you are having.

The cable which connects the charger to the phone must be capable of a high current for charging. If the cable has too much resistance during charging, the charger is under more stress than necessary causing it to overheat and burn out.

Try changing your cable and see if that solves the problem.
