Make Your Android Phone Charge Faster

Hello, there tech geek.

Here’s another post you are going to love. In this article, I will tell you a few ways to make your Android phone charge faster.

Yes, That’s right. You will learn how to make your Android phone charge Faster.

Having to charge your phone constantly is frustrating. Trust me, I have been there and the experience is not a good one.

You always have to move around with your charger or a power bank, with a constant fear of “a Low Battery “.

If your usage is above average, it’s unlikely your mobile device can make it throughout the day without a top up of power in the early evening.

I remember some time ago, I owned a Samsung device. Everything about the phone was amazingly outstanding. The only problem was that it wasn’t charging fast. So I had to do some personal research and digging and I found some ways to make my Android phone charge faster.

Here are seven (9) ways to speed up charging Android.

What is Low Power Mode?

According to Apple:

Low Power Mode reduces the amount of power your iPhone uses until you can get a full charge.

Here’s the scenario…you’re out for the day when you notice your phone battery is getting pretty low. You need to have access to your phone for the rest of the day but you don’t have a charger. Here’s where low power mode helps.

Low power mode changes some of the settings on your iPhone so the battery doesn’t drain as quickly. Low power mode will slow down or turn off features such as:

  • getting new emails
  • updated apps that are in the background (ie: not the app you’re currently using on your screen but other apps that are open on your phone)
  • some of the visual effects (ie: things like a wallpaper with motion)
  • “Hey Siri” (the ability to call Siri without touching your phone, simply by calling out “Hey Siri” near your phone)
  • automatic downloads and/or updates of apps

How to Turn on Low Power Mode

Low power mode can be turned on in two different ways:

  1. Turn Low Power Mode ON Manually:  Open the settings app > Tap on battery > Tap the toggle switch next to low power mode until it’s green
  2. Let your iPhone Turn Low Power Mode ON Automatically: If you’re battery gets to 20% charge or below a message will appear on your phone asking if you’d like to put your phone in low power mode. Click continue and your phone will enter low power mode to help you conserve battery power.

How to Turn off Low Power Mode

  2. Let your iPhone Turn Low Power Mode OFF Automatically: Once you get to a charger and you plug your iPhone in to charge, your iPhone will turn off low power mode automatically when your battery gets to 80% charge

7 Ways to Charge your iPhone Faster

Does low power mode make your phone charge faster? YES.

The more you use your battery while your charging the slower it will charge. In other words, the more you’re using your battery the slower it will charge. And, the less you use the battery, the faster it will charge.

Think of it like this. Say your charger can add 10% to your battery every 10 minutes (and, yes, different chargers can charge at different speeds…that’s why I use this one). And, let’s say you’re using Facebook which uses 5% of battery every 10 minutes. In the background, your phone is checking for emails which may take 2% of battery every 10 minutes. So, you’re charging your phone, using Facebook and your phone is checking your emails in the background. Here’s the net effect on the battery:

+ 3% your battery will gain 3% in that 10 minutes
Effect on Battery Function
+ 10% iPhone plugged in and charging
–  5% you’re using Facebook
–  2% phone checking for emails in background

Now, when you put it in low power mode, your phone will not check for emails in the background. So, if you still have it plugged in and are still using Facebook, your battery will see this:

+ 5% your battery will gain 5% in that 10 minutes
Effect on Battery Function
+ 10% iPhone plugged in and charging
–  5% you’re using Facebook
–  0% phone checking for emails in background – OFF IN LOW POWER MODE

So, what do you think? Does low power mode make your phone charge faster? Yes! This is a simple example…the numbers are made up just to illustrate the concept and not accurate. Also, there is much more going on that will drain your battery but hopefully this helps you understand why low power mode will make your iPhone charge faster.
