hello friends. i have a dual charger and the plug is detachable. i can charge by plugging it but at times when my laptop is turned on, i prefer charging through the usb port. with that i can also transfer data or music to and from my phone to my laptop or vice versa. i find the plug bulky when i go to work, so i usually leave it at home. how about you? where do you charge your mobile or cell phone?

I have several ways to charge my phone. I can plug the charger into the mains and charge it that way. In the car we have a thing that plugs into the lighter socket and that can charge it too while we drive. I also have a little solar charger that is like a tiny little notebook,you open it up and plug the end into the battery that is attached to it and the other end plugs into the mobile phone.

The last cell phone I had had the capability to charage the phone through a USB cable. When its at night I'll usually charge the phone using the AC outlet in the bedroom. if I'm busy during the day I'll usually charge my phone through the USB cable. However, the usb cable doesn't want to work right now so I can't use that option. At least today.

Cheiyen, As for me, I have never been caught out as far as cellphone batteries are concern as I have a spare for my Blackberry. Charging will usually be at the end of the day for me with a desktop charger where I have 1 at home and another packed in my briefcase.

I usually charge my phone from computer through usb port or in my car. I travel a lot because of my work & I spend good part of the day in my car.

I charge mine up at home, so when I have to be away, I don't have to take my charger with me Mine can either be charged up by way of the usb on my lapotp, or I can also put the usb end into an adapter that plugs into the electrical outlet. I like that as I can use whichever I want to. This is the first one that I have had that works both ways. It does make it easier, I must say. I use the usb port on laptop more than I use the outlet, as I have the phone sitting on the ocmputer table right by me, so I can use it while I am sitting here on the computer. Take care, and happy mylotting.

i think charging through usb port of laptop is pretty slow, i usually use my laptop ac adapter which has a usb port , so while charging my laptop ,i can also charge my smart phone, it's pretty fast ,but i also use power banks, it's convenient

We have 2 chargers for our phones. One is in the bedroom. We often plug our phones in at night. We also have one in the kitchen, for daytime or quick charges.

Most of the time, I charge my phone at home. But there are times that I need to call a lot or receive a lot of calls which would drain the battery. On such cases, I charge it on my laptop considering that I always bring my laptop at work. I do agree with you that it is somewhat a burden to carry the charger all the time.

Actually, I am using three mobiles Nokia, Motorala and Samsung each. As all they have diferent types of chargers, it is difficult to carry them all. So I always travelled with a multi point charger and a direct battary charger. These help me a lot.

i use my desktop charger when charging my cellphone. my cellphone doesn't have the feature of charging it using usb cable coz its already an old model. despite that, i love my cellphone coz it is reliable when i need it the most. :)

I usually use the plug in the wall but sometimes I do charge it via a usb lead if I am downloading some pictures or music to my computer from my Phone or the other way around. I sometimes keep it on a bit longer if I do that just to make it charge enough.

I usually full-charge it at home but in case of emergencies, I do it in the car or in the office. Malls now have places were you can charge. In mini-stores, they allow you to charge for a fee
