The most problematic component of a modern smartphone is the chemical battery, which still has to be recharged every day, just like 10 years ago. This means that an ordinary user regularly has to work with a smartphone that is charging.

First of all, you should consider the issue of safety in order to exclude the possibility of electric shock and even death. In the case of chargers for mobile gadgets, this is not just a pro forma warning, but a very real threat from which it saves using the original (complete) adapter…
However, not everything is so simple, because many people are not satisfied with, for example, a 5-watt charger, which is put in a box with an iPhone.

The most dangerous option is buying a cheap charger from an unnamed manufacturer. Such an adapter can actually kill a person and such incidents have already occurred. Moreover, in several cases it was found that the user was simply talking on the phone while charging, and did not play heavy games or launch energy-intensive applications.
Another problem is slow charging and heating of the battery while using the gadget on charging. By running a game or even a movie on a smartphone that is connected to a power source, you will notice an increase in the temperature of the case, and this is not at all good for the device’s battery. If such loads are regularly applied to the battery, this affects its service life, and in the worst case scenario, the battery may even catch fire. Naturally, the owners of smartphones from the low-end segment are primarily at risk of such a risk, however, memories of the explosions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, as well as the recent story of defective Apple MacBook batteries, are still fresh in their memory.

You can use a smartphone for charging if you are sure of the manufacturer of the gadget itself and the charger, but the battery will experience additional loads and heat up. If you have in your hands, for example, Apple iPhone, Samsung flagships and other TOP smartphones with a complete adapter, there is nothing to fear (with strong heating, the devices will simply turn off automatically), while a non-name device from the Middle Kingdom with the same nameless adapter can cause trouble.
