The batteries of current smartphones are lithium ion, which have a charging capacity of up to five thousand milliamps (mAh) or higher values, however, like any device, they also have a life cycle that you should extend avoiding certain negative and very common practices that most users do without realizing it. On this occasion, from Depor we will explain what the consequences of charging your phone are Android with a broken or frayed cable. Take note.
Most likely keep the same charger that came in the box with your telephoneif it is the case suddenly the cable is worn, old and even broken or peeled, even so you continue connecting it to your mobile device to charge it, stop doing it, since you would be deteriorating the battery of your equipment and even exposing yourself to a discharge electricity, reported the technology portal the BBC in London.
- According to the aforementioned medium, each cell phone receives a certain voltage, if the charger does not meet these standards, it would directly affect the battery. In simple words, it means that if the broken or frayed cable does not provide the same electrical measurements, it could significantly reduce the life of the battery.
- The broken wire could also overheat the device’s battery, causing explosions and short circuits. As you remember, when a cell phone battery explodes, a chemical reaction is generated and the component starts to catch fire.
- It is common to use the cell phone while charging it, if the cable is bare you run the risk of suffering an electric shock when you touch it.
a phone battery Android medium or high range can withstand approximately 500 charge cycles or maybe a little more, it all depends on the care you give it, the brand of equipment and its range. If you notice that your cell phone discharges quickly, it is likely that the milliamps (mAh) of the battery are decreasing, for example, if your new phone came with 5,000 mAh, now it may be between 3,000 or 4,000 and it will decrease with the use.

Your device’s battery wears out from the first day you use it, and its duration is measured by “charge cycles”. What does this mean? basically it represents the number of times the battery is charged from 0% to 100%, for example: if you charge your cell phone twice a day, the first from 0% to 50% and the second from 50% to 100%, this means that you have just exhausted a charge cycle. In the same way, if you charge it three times a day, two at 30% (they do 60) and one at 40%, it gives a total of 100%, therefore it is also considered a charge cycle.
