Do you leave your phone on charge overnight.

Some people advice against charging your phone overnight saying it is dangerous as the phone can get overheated and also that it can affect battery performance in the long run. I have done overnight charging of my phone plenty of times and haven't faced any problems. Do you leave your phone on the charger overnight? Have you faced any issues due to this?

of course the charger heats up when it is not original, so will the mobile phone too. i sometimes charge my phone overnight and it does not heat at all.

Also the phone heats up a bit and if it is under the pillow it can cause a fire as the heat can't escape.

@pitstop i don't put my phone under my pillow. it is in an open space free from things that are easily burned, like sheets of paper.

@ridingbet that's probably safer.

I'm just so afraid to leave something plugged overnight.

How do you charge your phone and be ready for the next day?

try avoiding this
It seems like the perfect time to top up your battery, but it's really not a good idea

This is not something to be viewed lightly as we heard and read many cases that cell phone can cause explosion when charging. Leaving it to be charged all night long? It's too risky.

No, aside from the danger of overcharging, it also lessens the lifespan of our gadgets. I take care of my gadget so it will last long.

Not really....most of the Chargers have in-built circuit cut-off system...so once your handset gets charged, it snaps the power supply to the mobile phone...so no question of over-heating....

I used to do that with my basic phones but never with my android phones. There are times that while charging the phone heats up and I don't want any kind of accidents.

I never charged my phone overnight. It is not good for the battery.

I always leave mine on charge overnight. Main reason is that by that time of night the battery is on low percentage, and I use phone as alarm.
