Having issues with your phone or tablet battery life? Well here are a few things to check for before getting it replaced. This also depends on what types of chargers you use and how often you are plugging in your phone. We all know a bad battery can be very frustrating from the phone dying randomly or taking forever to charge. Old and bad batteries can also lead to other internal problems such as damaging a circuit known as Charging IC (U2). If your screen looks like it is being pushed out on one side it could be your battery inflating and can cause damage to your screen or other internal components.
It is always recommended that you use an original charger for your phone to prevent damage not only to your battery but also to other internal components. One of the pros to knock-off chargers is how inexpensive they are compared to original, but in the long run, it is cheaper to use an original.
