Date: 27 Nov 2015    Group: Science and Technology    Category: Technology   

Most of the mobile phone user manuals recommend to charge the mobile phones with the charger provided with it. At the same time we are seeing lot of multiple pin chargers available in the market which can charge many mobiles at a time. Is it safe to charge the mobile phones with these multiple pin chargers either singly or with other mobiles? Awaiting responses from experts.

Yes, multiple chargers can be used to charge mobiles with alone or with other mobiles. This is done with the help of USB chargers.
USB chargers have consistent and standardized voltage.They need another means of putting more power. Most USB cables designed exclusively for charging limit the current to between 1 and 1.5 amperes.
In addition to the volts and amps, the third metric to keep an eye on is frequency. Check writings on the back of both the charger and device to ensure it reads something like this: "Input 100 – 240V ~ 200mA 50 – 60 Hz."
These chargers utilize a small chip to monitor and manage the state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH) of similarly-equipped batteries. This is the basic feature on almost every modern secondary battery on the market and also among Li-ion systems. This feature allows the batteries to charge safely without the risk of getting overheated and explode.
The process for charging a battery typically occurs in three stages. The first stage is known as the bulk charge which dumps a large amount of voltage and amperage into battery. The maximum voltage and current a battery can withhold happens in this stage.Once the battery fills to 80 percent capacity, the charger will drop the amps but maintain the incoming voltage for the second stage, absorption where the battery reaches near full capacity without over heating. The current begins to drop significantly which ensures that at least 20% remains every time for charging.
The final stage, around 85 to 95-percent capacity, is known as the Float which ensures that the current is maintained but not added.
Once you're sure that your device's needs line up with your charger's output, all that's left is ensuring your USB cords are equipped with the proper pin connector.
Instead, just stash a single spare brick in your bag, bring only the cords you need, and stagger your device charging so that one is always plugged into a port on your computer.
While we can use the same charger for multiple devices, its better we avoid it so as to preserve the efficiency of the devices.

I do not think that it is safe to charge mobile with multiple charges at a same time.
Charging mobile gives heat to mobile and if this heat increases till certain extent, it will definitely damage the mobile or battery.

If you want to use different charger pin s at different times, then it is all ok. There will not be any issue with mobile.

But use single charger at a time.

I will start my answer by mentioning a myth and its fact.
Myth : Do not use Cell Phone while charging.
Fact : You can use Cell Phone while charging with its own charger.

Here, you are asking whether it is safe to use a multiple pin charger. The answer is, it is not completely safe i.e. you cannot use your cell phone while charging with multiple pin chargers. Also, note that the charging process will be slow when you use multiple pin chargers.

So, my suggestion to you is that prefer normal chargers to multiple pin chargers. Also, avoid charging multiple phones at a time using multiple pin chargers. It might be dangerous.

Hope you got what you need.
