Charging your phone while you’re sleeping results in the phone being on the charger for 3-4 months a year, Hatem Zeine, founder of Ossia, has said.
According to the developer, the process inevitably lowers the capacity of phone’s battery.
Experts also warned that leaving phones to charge overnight can actually make the daily battery life struggle even worse.
A recent report has explained that batteries depreciate from the moment they’re first used, according to The Sun, including the ones in our smartphones.
Plugging them in overnight increases the time your phone’s connected to a power supply, which effects the battery’s long-term ability to hold charge much faster than if you just charged it for the amount of time needed.
