Did you know that charging your iPhone overnight is BAD for the battery?? We are so guilty of this!!
Tech expert Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, wrote about why you shouldn't do this HERE.
Basically, your phone doesn't need to be on a charger for 8(ish) hours. It's charging at a much slower rate which isn't efficient and the HEAT from keeping it on the charger all night is essentially KILLING your battery.
"Heat is a killer of batteries. While there's nothing you can do about the normal wear and tear that a battery experiences from being charged and discharged, heat is something you can do something about.
"When you iPhone is connected to a charger, it gets warm - warmer than if it isn't connected, and even though that increase might only be a few degrees above room temperature, doing this overnight, every night, doesn't seem smart to me."
So, what’s the best way to charge your iPhone?
Charge twice a day for shorter periods of time.
Adrian's own practice is:
"I put [the iPhone] on for 30 to 45 minutes in the morning after I get up (I also charge up my Apple Watch at the same time).
"Then I charge it around mid-afternoon for another 30 minutes or so to bring it to that 80% mark, which usually will be enough to see me through to the next morning.This is also why Apple has introduced the charging update to iOS."
