Why You Should Never Charge Your Phone in A Car

If you are planning a long road trip or end up spending your entire day in a car due to traffic, the most frustrating scenario could be a phone with low battery. This applies especially to the iPhone as it often runs out of battery. Most people have a charger plugged into the car’s USB port or the lighter port in order to get that juice again. What most people do not realise is that charging an iPhone in your car can cause more damage and ruin your phone’s battery.

You may have noticed your phone takes longer than usual to charge and that is because the USB port in your car provides less electricity than your phone actually requires. When plugging your phone to a port that yields less electricity, your phone will suck up electricity at a much faster rate than the port is capable of delivering. This, in turn, will freeze up your phone or barely charge the smartphone.

Charging your phone can also be detrimental to your car’s battery. Even though your smartphone might not look like something that can affect your car’s battery, the odds are high that your device is depleting the car’s battery faster than usual. This may not be an issue for new car owners or cars with newer batteries; however, you may want to stop using the car’s port right now!
