How to stop charger overvoltage


  • Use the Main Charger of Your phone

    Are you using the same type of charger that came with the phone? If No, It is very possible that you may be using a charger with high voltage on your phone. Some phones charge at 1A or more depending on the type of phone you use. Despite the fact that they all have the same micro USB cable, don’t make the mistake of using a charger that isn’t meant for your device. Using a wrong charger can destroy your phone’s internal charging circuitry. So be very careful when selecting a charger, making sure that its current draw is the same as the phone. The phone makers have already marked the voltage that will be suitable for your phone and giving it out to you cause it will not cause any harm to the phone. Looking at the details of the charger you use, you will see where it boldly wrote about the voltage, so if a charger voltage output is higher than the input of your phone, it causes it to have over charger voltage. so I suggest that you change your charger to the mains charger. Avoid fast chargers if your device does not support it.

  • Switch off the phone and charge

    Another step on how to avoid over charger voltage, switching off your phone in order to charge it is one of the ways of avoiding over charger voltage. When the phone is shut down, every app that is running gets closed. Experiments have shown that phone charges faster when it is shut down than when it is on. So when you switch off the phone try to charge it, if it still says over charger voltage then I suggest you change to the mains charger.

  • Avoid using your phone while charging

    Do you use your phone while charging? Stop it! Using your phone while charging, makes the phone battery to be weak. Therefore, may not be able to attain its maximum input when charging. When you plug your phone and you are making use of it, that means the ones that get charged is being used up immediately by the phone. The charger is trying to charge your phone to fullness but you keep putting pressure on the battery, this makes it weak. When this happens, you may not have a lasting battery again. It is wrong, try to leave your phone to full then you can make use it. Or whenever you want to make use of it, you disconnect the charger from it.

  • Avoid plugging your charger directly to the wall socket

    Do you know that plugging a charger directly to the wall socket is risky? To avoid over charger voltage, avoid plugging your phone directly to the wall socket, try to use extension sockets.
