Every cellphone has a battery that delivers power in the same manner.
Inside your phone, there are cells that are made up of two electrodes.
In addition, there are electrolyte catalyze reactions.
This is responsible for converting compounds into new substances. Ions form in the electrodes over time.
The ions are responsible for driving a flow of electrons to the battery’s negative outer terminal. This supplies the phone with an electric charge.
Why Does My Charger Suck?
You are probably wondering, okay that’s great, but why is my charger so lackluster?
Your phone has a built-in regulator that controls how much electricity can enter through charging. This can greatly limit the speed of charging your phone to its fullest extent.
And this only happens if the power coming through is greater than what your phone’s regulator will allow.
All sources of power are not equal as well. You will probably notice a difference when plugging in your charger to your outlet compared to charging your phone via USB through your laptop!
You want to get as much power from the source without the internal regulator trying to slow things down.
