Using USB Chargers Safely(2)

Types of USB ports

There are three types of USB port dictated by the actual current specs (milliamps or Ma).

Dedicated charging port

A dedicated charging port applies to power sources like wall chargers that do not enumerate, so charging occurs with no digital communication at all.

Downstream port

A charging downstream port can be found on a computer or laptop and can supply up to 1.5A, whilst allowing a USB to be detected and begin charging before enumeration (which is when the digital communication takes place).

Standard downstream port

A standard downstream port can be found on a computer or laptop and needs to enumerate (start digital communication) to be USB compliant, however most present-day hardware does draw power without enumerating.

Voltage and Amperage

Not all USB connectors, cables and chargers are equal. For example, some wall chargers can supply more power than others and one particular USB socket on a laptop may vary in power from the others, or PCs with some able to charge whilst in sleep mode.

You will also need to consider Amperage.Chargers increase the current to provide a higher amount of power quickly – this is measured in amps and the more amps means the more power. Therefore, a charger that comes with a smartphone will provide less amps than a charger that come with a tablet. You will need to consider voltage and the equipment you’ll need to use to enable the use of USB chargers when travelling internationally.

Safety Concerns

Uncertified chargers come with serious safety concerns. Similar to unofficial batteries, uncertified chargers can be bought at a reduced price online, from overseas or in high street shops and these kind of electrical products may present a higher risk of exploding or catching fire. Not only do they present a risk to you, the use of uncertified chargers may also damage your phone (which in turn could void your guarantee).

Cheap devices often fail to meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment Regulations Act 1994. The money that you save comes with extremely high risks and therefore buying a branded/certified charger is essential to avoid often fatal repercussions.

Common Problems About Power Banks Like Us on Facebook 1. Powerbank unable to charge my tablet? a) Powerbank with 2A output to charge tablets. While some tablets can accept lower input (1A or 1.5A), the charging is slower and sometimes can only be charged when the tablet is in sleep mode.
b) Some tablet is cables might not be compatible with power bank due to different cable chipset design. For Samsung Galaxy Tab in particular, we recommend using the cable and connector meant for power bank (comes with some power banks.




2. Powerbank battery drained off very fast? a) Generally, a well maintained powerbank can retain up to 80-90% of its original capacity. Please check your device (phone/ tablet) original battery capacity and the powerbank capacity. Please also see answer 1.a. above.
b) The number of times a powerbank can charge your device very much depends on the capacity of both the powerbank and the device. Examples of calculation shown in answer 2 above.
c) Please do not attach cables …
Dos and Don’ts When You Use a Power Bank  Like Us on Facebook Modern gadgets are power hungry. Our increasingly busy lives mean a dead battery can leave you disconnected from life, work, and your daily routine.

As with all electrical and electronic devices, it’s important to treat them with respect and care to ensure they continue to work properly and safely.
With this in mind, we advise you to think about some general Dos and Don’ts to help keep you safe when using power banks and portable chargers:




1. Do use the power pack only for its intended use. E.g. to recharge your mobile phone or other USB powered mobile devices. 2. Do keep away from heat sources and liquids - direct sunlight, humidity or water. 3. Do only use connecting cables prov…
How to make your phone's battery last longer
Fed up with charging your phone every night? We offer some simple tips and tricks you can use to make your phone's battery last longer, plus point out the battery saving myths that won't help you at all.

Even in 2017, it's tough to go much longer than 24 hours without charging your smartphone. Better battery technology simply hasn't arrived yet, which means it's down to software and settings to eke out the limited power for as long as possible.
Unfortunately, you're never going to get a week's use out of a smartphone because of those big, bright screens along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 4G. However, by following our advice and making a few changes to your phone's settings (and maybe even changing the way you use your phone) you should be able to extend its battery life by a good chunk.
What we're not going to suggest here is to use your phone less. Our aim is to show you how to reduce your handset'…
