Power to you
Energy consumption is the first issue we’re going to identify for you. A phone that’s charging doesn’t take much electricity but it is still drawing power when it doesn’t need to. This is one of those small issues that can make a major difference to the electricity consumed across the world if we all change our habits.
Although there’s no evidence to suggest that leaving a phone charging for ages damages the device itself, damage is being done to the charger as it remains at a hot temperature for longer than it needs to. This makes some of its internal components suffer and its life is reduced as a consequence.
