Cellphones are serious business.

Serious business for the


giant corporations that invest heavy budgets in upgra-
ding them with the latest technology and business for
the end-users that turned them into the highest frenzy
of our fast forward present. Were all thinking of the
fantastic features they come with and the sharp designs,
but seldom we think about their battery life, which is
their actual life. Battery life depends on charging. Char-
ging is a necessity and the charging habits have changed
over time, now allowing us to boost our cellphones
with power in shorter amounts of time and independent

of electric energy supplies.
Even nowadays, the technology that makes our cellphones
work the way they do, is based on the old two-way radios of
the 1940s that were used in taxis and police cars. The very
rst primitive cell phone was used in 1946 by the Swedish
police department. The phone worked using the principles
of radio transmissions and it was good for six calls before
the battery died. The thing about mobile chargers is that
they evolved in size, weight and capacities over time but
the downside is that they dont push enough power to keep
our cellphones up and running like the ones in the good old days
did. Check out our list and draw your own conclusion.
CONCLUSION:
In our present times, the longevity of the batteries is given
by the quality of the charger. Choosing a high quality
charger is very important as it can inuence the life
expectance, quality, durability and proper function of your
cellphones battery. By choosing a suitable charger, you
can save a lot of money from unnecessary battery replace-
ments and you can certainly save yourself from the
annoyance poorly performing batteries can create.
The prehistoric
titan of cellphone chargers
The titan of cellphone chargers
that rst appeared in the 80s
couldnt pump up power for your
cellphone to survive an entire day.
Moreover, the more you charged
your cellphone, the less could
resist, as the Nickel Camdium
batteries built up what is called a
memory eect and didnt always
hold a charge. The classic Motorola
DynaTAC, known as the banana
cellphone, took up to 10 hours for
charging.
The classic and most
common Li-Ion batteries
cellphone charger
This one is the most common
charging method, most widely
known, most widely used, most
familiar for all of us. As cellphones
evolved in shape and battery
components and attributes,
cellphone chargers became more
compact and thus easier to be
carried around in pockets, bags
and hands. The classic, which is
also called wall charger, because
now we have many alternatives for
this, can be connected either via an
USB cable or has an integrated
cable that can be plugged. The
average charging time for the
classic wall chargers is no more
than an hour, as time shrunk and
so did cellphone batteries and
chargers.

Wireless charger or
inductive charging
The wireless charger is one of the
most comfortable alternatives for
charging your cellphone, as you
dont need a plug and you do not
depend on those annoying wires
that keep your cellphone tied in a
steady and rigid place. The wireless
charger is usually done with a
charging station and the wireless
charger is nevertheless a very safe
and ecient alternative both for
charging your cellphone and for
expanding the battery life of your
device, because it adds durability -
Without the need to constantly plug
and unplug the device, there is
signicantly less wear and tear on
the socket of the device and the
attaching cable.
Portable
powerbanks
A portable power bank is a mobile
charger for your device and it is an
absolute must-have for your
charging needs, especially when
traveling. Depending on your
needs, you can choose either a
high capacity or low ranked
portable power bank. Some
portable power banks come with a
built in USB charger, which makes
them even more versatile. The
portable power banks are one of
the safest and most useful
charging methods as you can
charge your cellphone constantly,
while you are on the go. The
average charging time with a
portable powerbank is no more
than three hours, obviously
depending on the capacity of your
Fast charging
Bright minds somewhere in Tel
Aviv have been thinking about a
way to charge our cellphones in no
less than 30 seconds. It seems
that the new device works on
biological semiconductors made
from naturally occurring organic
compounds called peptides, or
short chains of amino acids, the
building blocks of proteins. The
30-seconds charger is a prototype
for the moment but it sure as
cellphone science works so we
cannot wait to see how our
cellphones battery life and
charging time can be improved. It
seems that these fast charger
work with an unique type of
battery that only boosts the
process and we will nd out more
until 2016, the ocial release
year.
The medieval cellphone
charger
After the Nickel Camdium batteries
fashion faded and technology took
an evolutionary leap, the Nickel
Metal Hydride batteries appeared
but the chargers didnt change
much. The only thing is that the
batteries were non-toxic and didnt
hold that memory eect anymore,
so the giant heavy mobile bricks
lasted for longer in terms of battery
power. With these kind of chargers,
the batteries could be recharged in
a shorter timeframe, and let users
talk longer before they died. Nokia
Cityman 900 took up to 4 hours to
recharge, a considerable step
forward in the history of cellphone
chargers.
The USB cable
Charging your cellphone went
one step further with this cable
that also enables data transfer,
connection, communication and
of course, power supply for
cellphones. The USB cable
appeared in the late 90s and it is
still a very ecient, pretty fast
and comfortable way to charge
your cellphone. The average
charging time with a USB cable
is of 3 hours, depending on the
amperage you choose for the
cable. The USB cables usually
charge your device four times
slower than a classic power
charger but they are more
versatile both in terms of size
and in terms of connectivity.
Solar chargers
Average weight: 140 g
Average size: 6 cm x 6 cm
Charging time: 4 hours
Maximum Capacity: 10000mAh
The solar chargers are nowadays
one of the safest and within reach
alternatives to charge your cellpho-
ne. Depending on their potential and
capacities, charging with a solar
charger can take up to 4 hours,
average time. General Rule to
estimate total hours of direct
sunlights to full charge: (Amperer
per Hour of the Battery / Amperes
per Hour of the Charger) + 10%. So,
youll need an average of 3 hours of
direct sunlight to full charge your
cell phone battery using a 2 Watt
solar charger or 30 minutes if You
have one of 18 Watt.
Charging kiosk
The charging kiosk is one of the
most advanced alternatives for
charging your cellphone nowadays.
It looks like a lifeless robot and it
encapsulates a large sum of
chargers for various cellphone
models. The charging kiosk is very
easy to operate and extremely
secure, as it follows some strong
security rules with passwords,
secret keys and password reassu-
rances. The charging time when it
comes to the charging kiosk is no
more than two hours, being two
times faster with the optional Qi
wireless charger.
Charging wearables
It seems that Microsoft has been
working with a fashion designer for
that and soon we will have the
benet of some great looking pants
that will greatly charge our cellpho-
nes also. The wearable chinos are
provided with a wireless charger
reassembled within the front pocket
of the trousers. Unfortunately, the
trousers are not machine washable
but are nevertheless a fastforward
leap in fashion design and technolo-
gy. So, these cuties come with a
wireless charger embodied in the
front pocket, that will properly pump
up the power of your device without
you needing to worry or think about
the closest charging point.
Car chargers
The car chargers for cellphones
come in a wide variety and for a
pretty large price range. The car
charger works as this wire that
connects your car battery to your
cellphone, allowing electroche-
mical energy to be transferred
from your car battery to your
cellphone battery. In terms of
chargin time, you surely know
that not all chargers are created
equally and the charging period
diers from one to another,
depending on their mAh capacity.
The car charger can easily be
integrated inside the space of
your car, by repurposing the old
cigarette lighter receptacles into
mobile device chargers.
