Default Some useful battery and charger protection tips

Companies got together in 2007 and settled on a standard for USB charging. As a result, nearly any phone and tablet now comes with a USB charger that can be used interchangeably between devices without any issues. Any device that supports Battery Charging Specification 1.1 or above will detect and manage the amount of power and adapt accordingly. Right?

Well, those 50 cent chargers may look quite attractive, but experiments have shown that known brand names perform better and are much safer to use. Cheap cables and chargers have become a widespread problem in recent years. It’s such a problem that Amazon had to ban cheap, non-compliant cables from being sold on their site.

These two articles will provide some valuable insight and help you to understand the charger/battery link with your phone's health.
