Too many myths swirl around smartphones and electronics in general. Unfortunately, users tend to believe this nonsense, so it’s important to pour clean wine. Today, we’re going to look at the use of flight mode in practice and whether this feature can make your phone charge faster. We’ll reveal right away that it is de facto possible – but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Flight mode makes no sense
To understand the issue as a whole, we first need to understand what Flight Mode actually does. The meaning of this feature can vary from phone to phone, so you always need to take into account the smartphone you’re holding in your hand. For example, on an iPhone, you can use this mode to turn off your cell signal, data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and all location services.
A side effect of this mode is a reduction in battery consumption, and here we get to the heart of the matter. The phone doesn’t flow more power during charging, nor does it magically store it faster – it has nothing to do with the charging itself. The phone simply uses a little less power, which may (or may not) result in a slightly faster battery.
You can’t tell the difference
If you don’t use your phone while it’s charging, you won’t notice the difference between flight mode on and off. So it’s pointless to think about triggering this feature every time you charge and tearing your hair out if you don’t. Phones are smart enough, let them do the work for you.
Do you use flight mode while your phone is charging? If so, do you notice a significant acceleration in battery charge? Share your opinion in the discussion!
