Nowadays, we are all inseparable from our mobile phones. Our lives cannot be separated from mobile phones. Mobile phones can be placed around us, and we use them at home, at work, or on the go. But it loses power easily, especially when we go out and have no place to charge, which will bring us inconvenience. Therefore, many people will choose a mobile charger so that we can ensure that our mobile phones have enough power and can be used at any time, not only in emergencies.
However, with the widespread popularity of different models of mobile phones, there are more and more chargers, and sometimes we may borrow other people’s chargers because we are too lazy to look for them. In this case, we must know whether mobile phone chargers can be mixed. If used incorrectly, it can cause damage to the phone and pose safety risks.
Why can’t mobile phone chargers be mixed?
First of all, we need to know that the output voltage and current of mobile phone chargers of different models and brands are different. If chargers of different brands and models are mixed, the output voltage and current of the charger may not match, resulting in damage to the mobile phone circuit board. If you use a charger with unstable voltage to charge, the mobile phone charger will be damaged by excessive or low voltage, resulting in a shortened battery life for the mobile phone.
Secondly, other people’s chargers may be of low quality or fake. With the advancement of technology, many fake and inferior chargers have appeared on the market. And some chargers have not even been tested for safety. Such a charger will produce unstable power during charging, which may cause damage or even danger to your phone.
Under what circumstances can I mix mobile phone chargers?
If you must borrow someone else’s charger, you should understand that, in some cases, it’s okay to mix and match. For example, Apple’s mobile phone chargers are relatively unified and comply with the standards for Apple mobile phones. So we can use another model of charger to charge. Likewise, if you use a universal charger when purchasing one, it can be used interchangeably.
How do I use a mobile phone charger correctly?
To ensure the safety of your phone and reduce damage to your charger, you should know how to use it correctly. First of all, you should buy genuine products so that you can ensure that your charger is of stable quality. Secondly, you should wait until the power bank is fully charged before plugging in your phone charger. Avoid forcibly interrupting charging or accidentally dropping the charger plug when using the charger.
In short, we should exercise caution when purchasing and using mobile phone chargers. While mixing different makes and models of chargers may not seem like a big problem. It can lead to danger and circuit board damage. Therefore, if we must mix different chargers, we must pay special attention to the relevant details and safety issues.
