5 Ways to Increase Battery Life and Reduce Slow Phone Charge

Most of us when we got our phones newly,we were impressed with the battery life and operations and would even boast about the battery and hours of operation to friends and family. But after a month or two,the battery no longer functions as it used to when we first got it.

Here's a similar complain we got from a friend

My Note 5 says it is going to take 6 hours to be fully charged from 10%....When I first got the phone is was charging very fast, about 20-30% up to full in a little under an hour...now I need to charge it all night.

Does anyone else have this issue or have a solution?

What causes my phone to charge slow? Is it the battery or the phone inside?????????

That was a complaint I got from a concerned phone user.Today I try my possible best to proffer a solutions. But if there are other ways not mentioned or suggested here,you are welcome to contribute via the  comment box.Thank you

How to fix a Slow Charging Smartphone

Tip#1:Don't Use Phone While Charging: Using your smartphone while charging is not an healthy move to your device. It puts a negative impact on yourAndroid’s battery life. It causes overload to the battery life thereby causing the phone to over heat

Follow these steps to Reduce Charge Time

•Close/End all the applications that are running

•Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS

Tip#2:Avoid Charging From Powerbanks, Laptops or PC: A lot of us are guilty of this crime. Irrespective of the fact that we charge our phones using any of these outlets,it isn't still a good idea to do so. USB ports on Computers are meant for transferring data, they do not have enough current for a device to charge. Hence, slow charging.
E.g Output Current of USB
  • USB 2.0 can provide up to 500mA
  • USB 3.0 can provide up to 900mA
In the absence of a charger,and decide to use a PC USB port as a last resort,it would be great if you connect your device to a USB 3.0 (blue) port.

Tip#3:Use Airplane Mode: Airplane mode on your smartphone can significantly improve the charging process by decreasing the charging time. The only disadvantage is that you would not be able to communicate with others through mobile network or internet

Tip#4: Replace Your Battery: If you’ve been using your device for more than 1 year, and it takes more than 3hours to charge and less than 5hours to discharge, then it’s time to look for a replacement.

Remember, the highest form of abnormality is for your device to be charging for more than 4hours and still doesn't get to 100% full charge.

Tip#5:Finally,Replace The Charging Cable:if you've tried the other tips mentioned above and none seem to be in your favour,replace the charging cable because oftentimes, it is usually the micro-USB to USB cable that is the culprit. These cables lose their efficiency over time and therefore can’t provide enough current to charge the phone/device. 
Change the Micro-USB to cable. Either purchase a new original one or borrow the one that’s being used on other device.
