Does the Voltage of Your Mobile Charger Matter?
Jun 13,2019, 163
Chances are you probably have a ton of phone, tablet, and laptop chargers that you’ve collected over the years just laying around your home. We’ve all heard horror stories of devices exploding when using the wrong charger, so how can you tell which charger is safe to use with each device? It all comes down to the voltage. Using a mobile USB charger can help avoid damaging your phone, but it’s not always a convenient option. Keep reading to learn all you need to know about what voltage means when it comes to charging your device and how to avoid damaging your phone.

Does Voltage or Amperage Really Matter?
The voltage of your charger is extremely important when it comes to charging mobile devices. Any time you’re not using the designated charger for your device, you need to make sure that the voltage and amperage of the replacement charger is compatible with your device. You can usually find this information on your device, battery, or if all else fails, on the manufacturer’s web site. If the voltage of your charger exceeds the specified amount on your device, it’s not a good idea to use it.

Amperage is just as important, if not more so than voltage. Amps are the current that’s supplied to your device and regulate how much power flows through from the power supply to your device. To charge your device properly, the amperage on your charger or power supply should either match or exceed the amount required by your device.

The average cellphone or tablet typically requires 5V to be charged while laptops can be as high as 20V or 25V.

Do High-Voltage Chargers Damage Cellphones?
High-voltage chargers do, indeed, have the potential to damage your mobile device. Batteries have limited operating temperatures that top out at around 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit). When charged at higher currents than they’re designed for, these batteries can heat up quickly; operating at an increased temperature can decrease the life of your battery drastically. In addition, devices that are charged with power supplies that have a significantly higher ampere rating are at risk of exploding. In short, the amperage and voltage of certain chargers can definitely damage your phone, so make sure to check out the specifications of your device before using an off-brand or random charger.
