Here are a couple of neat tricks on how to charge your iPhone faster.

We know how frustrating it can be for iPhone owners to wait for their smartphones to charge. Most of the time, the plug, wait and pray process simply is not enough to get some amps into your hand-held device. iPhones are great – they’re reliable, robust, and there’s no limit to what you can accomplish using a smartphone.

However, the phone’s greatest disadvantage is its battery life – it either depletes too quickly, or its charging process takes too long, and this can become a little frustrating when you’re on the run.

To help you save a few extra minutes or even hours in some cases, we have compiled some of the best advice on the Internet regarding how to quick-charge your phone. These tricks will surely come in handy the next time you need to leave the house in a hurry.

First thing’s first – the difference between wall charging and charging you phone from your computer. Apple recommended that we use a wall charger if we’re on the run rather than the computer. They’ve explained that the wall socket is capable of delivering more amps in your phone than the USB port.

Another great tip to decrease charging time is to buy a different charger. However, watch out for those fake iPhone chargers. When buying a new wall charger, search for Apple’s MFi certification. That way you can be sure it’s compatible with your phone.

As unusual it would might sound, you can shave off a couple of minutes by simply removing your phone’s case. Apple said that the phone’s lithium-ion battery doesn’t cope that well with high temperatures, produced by outfitting your phone with bulky covers.

Another trick to get in mind is to close background applications. This tip is not only useful for decreasing charging time, but also for prolonging the phone’s battery life.

If you’re ever in a tight spot, you can always try switching eye the phone’s Airplane Mode. Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive/place calls, text or use any Internet-based application, but your battery will deplete at a slower rate.

Last (but not least) try cleaning out your lightning port every now and then. It may seem inconsequential, but you’ll be amazed at what a few stray dust particles can do in terms of battery charging.
