Never leave a charger in an outlet without your phone: I’ll expose the three major reasons

Leaving chargers plugged into sockets after charging electronic devices may seem harmless, but it can have significant implications.

Even in standby mode, chargers continue to draw power, albeit in small amounts. This constant power consumption can lead to overheating and accelerate the wear of internal components like capacitors. In extreme cases, an overheated charger may emit smoke or even cause a fire, especially in the event of a sudden change in voltage.

Additionally, leaving chargers plugged in poses a safety risk, particularly in households with young children or pets. Exposed cords increase the likelihood of electric shocks, making it essential to keep sockets secure when not in use.
