The days when you needed a charger when your iPhone’s battery was empty. The purpose of this article is to describe in five convenient ways how you can charge an iPhone without a charger.
When the iPhone battery runs low, it is usually charged with a charging adapter and a light cable. The cable is attached to the adapter that is connected to the wall and then connected to the iPhone. A bolt/flash mark appears next to the battery, which turns green, in the status bar on the iPhone screen to indicate that it is being charged as shown in the screenshot below.
However, there are other ways to charge an iPhone without a charger.
Five of these unconventional methods are listed and discussed below. They can be tried out by all iPhone users at home. They are absolutely safe and will not damage your device. They have been tested and recommended by iPhone users worldwide.
How to charge your iPhone (Best Methods)
Quickly rechargeable battery
Now that we are on USB-C, let’s take a look at the power supplies, also called backup batteries. You can take and remove any old battery pack. However, if you choose a USB-C version with Power Delivery, you can charge your iPhone quickly if you use this Lightning to USB-C cable. In fact, it’s probably the best use of the iPhone’s fast charge, because connecting on the road is a big mess. I like this ZMI PowerPack 20000:back to menu ↑
Alternative energy source
Portable Battery / Camper Charger / Solar Charger / Windmill / Crank Machine – Portable battery packs are readily available on the market for all budgets. They have different voltages, so choose your battery carefully. Simply connect a USB cable to the pack and connect it to your iPhone. Now switch on the battery and check whether your iPhone is being charged normally. There are a few battery packs that can be permanently attached to the back of your device to maintain a constant power supply and prevent the iPhone from running out of battery power. These packages must be charged as soon as their power is used.back to menu ↑
The normal Lightning USB charger
This is the standard option. You take the small charger from the iPhone box, connect everything and wait. You can also use almost any USB charger or USB port. However, if you do this, keep in mind that malware can live in USB chargers. Fortunately, there is an easy way to protect yourself. Buy a ‘USB condom’ – in that case, you have to find out if the condom itself is questionable – or make it yourself.back to menu ↑
Charge iPhone from iPad
If you have an iPad Pro, you can use it to charge your iPhone. This is probably only useful in an emergency, but in an emergency, you will be happy that you can. The disadvantage is that you need a Lightning to USB-C cable for this. Avoid the Apple version and get one from Anker: back to menu ↑back to menu ↑
Now that you have a USB-C to Lightning cable, you can charge your iPhone through any USB-C port, whether it’s a charger, a power supply, or a computer. And the best news is that recent iPhones charge faster. If you often need to charge your iPhone quickly, this is a great option to keep close at hand.back to menu ↑
We come to the Qi support. It is easy to be skeptical – they are slower than a cable, they are ineffective and they may not charge the iPhone fully if you do not place it properly. But once you’ve used one, this changes the way you think about charging. I now charge my battery bit by bit and often, instead of at night.
I also keep the charging levels below 90% unless I plan a day trip from food. After all, why pressurize the battery by squeezing it completely if you don’t need it? You can also charge your AirPods on the same small floor rugs (assuming they are in a wireless charging case).
