3 Iphone Charging Myths Abound, we're here to clear them up.
In the past few weeks, we've noticed that there's a large number of people who've been asking us the same questions again and again. The endless cog of the internet has created a lot of misperceptions, lies, myths, and downright stupidity with regards to iphone charging and how it works. We want to clear up three of the myths in this post.
Myth: Using generic chargers will damage your battery.
Fact: The only thing that will damage your iphone battery is using a knockoff charger. These knockoff chargers damage the iPhone logic board and as a result have a negative long term effect on your iphone. The knockoffs damage the battery. You have to continue looking for the MFI certification. Lifehacker did a very good side by side comparison of of knockoffs versus apple certified chargers.
The MFI certification is important as a hardware manufacturer of apple products. It gives companies like ours access to the iPhone charging chips directly from apple certified manufacturers and ensures true product quality.
Myth: Don't Turn off Your Phone, ever.
Fact: Turning off your iphone will help it charge faster in the future. A lot of people keep on their iphones for extremely long durations. Even Apple advises the same.
Myth: Don't charge your battery til it's dead.
Fact: Charging your batteries every day is a well informed decision. Apple and Samsung both build their phones with lithium ion. Lithium ion batteries require daily recharges. Leaving them at zero can make the battery unstable. One has to keep in mind that a battery is a chemical reaction of sorts.
