Quick Phone Recharging Tip

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Smartphones

Here’s a quick tip for getting a smartphone or tablet that’s running low on juice up to full power as fast as possible. Switch the device to airplane mode while you’re charging. This shuts off the WiFi connection and means your phone won’t use any power updating apps or receiving notification.


Airplane mode is usually found under Settings and is usually under Network connections. Don’t forget to shut airplane mode off when the phone is charged. Otherwise, you won’t be able to connect to the Internet.

    Wouldn’t it be even quicker if you just powered-down your phone?
    Just a thought.

    Good tip but you didn’t make it clear that on a phone airplane mode also turns of the cell system radio so no texts or phone calls will be sent or received. I like Don’s idea if you really want to charge it fast turn it off.

    Yes, both Cynthia and Don’s idea gave me info I didn’t know.
