It does not matter whether your phone is charging or not when you are using it.
The answer to this question is yes and no.
First, let’s take a look at what happens when you use your phone while it’s charging: your phone has to transmit data in order for you to receive it. This means that when it’s charging and connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network, it’s still emitting radiation. However, the amount of radiation emitted by your device varies depending on whether or not the screen is turned on (and what features are being used). The same goes for downloading apps—the more data you download over time, the more power your device consumes and thus emits radiation.
Radiation from your phone goes down significantly as the battery level fall below 20 percent and continues to go down as the battery level goes down.
The amount of radiation you are exposed to from your phone decreases significantly as the battery level falls below 20 percent. This is because, as the battery level goes down and becomes less efficient, it requires less current to charge.
Radiation exposure is also lower when the phone is not in use, as opposed to being actively charged. The reason for this is simple: if you leave your screen on while charging it will be using a lot of power (and thus emitting more radiation) than if you were merely charging without using the device at all.
If your phone stays in the same position while charging, it may cause skin irritation or burns in some cases.
If your phone stays in the same position while charging, it may cause skin irritation or burns in some cases. The battery may expand or swell and become too hot to touch. In extreme cases, the battery may explode, which could result in serious injury. Additionally, you could be at risk of electric shock or fire due to overheating from prolonged charging of your device if it’s not placed correctly on its base charger or stand (if applicable) while charging.
You may be at risk of electric shock only if you use a low-quality charger.
You may be at risk of electric shock only if you use a low-quality charger. In this case, the charger won’t have been certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL; an independent testing organization) and will not have the proper safety certifications. The charger should also work with your phone model and be plugged into a working outlet. Additionally, it’s important that the battery has no damage such as cracks or bulges in order to prevent overheating from occurring when charging.
The battery may explode only if you expose it to extremely high temperatures while charging.
What is the risk of explosion?
Most people worry about this, but it’s very unlikely. The battery in your phone doesn’t explode if you use it while charging—even if you leave it in direct sunlight while charging or leave it in a closed car on a hot day and then turn on the air conditioning. The only situation where there is any possibility that your phone might explode during charging involves exposing the battery to extremely high temperatures (such as when using an unofficial charger). So if you’re worried about exploding batteries, don’t expose them to extreme heat!
There is no significant risk of radiation or other damage while using your phone while it’s charging, but there are some minor risks.
No, there is no significant risk of radiation, electric shock or other damage while using your phone while it’s charging.
There are some minor risks, however:
- Skin irritation or burns from the heat generated by your device. This happens when you keep a smartphone on a pillow or pillowcase—or anywhere else on your skin—when it’s plugged in to charge. You can avoid this by simply not placing your phone in direct contact with any part of the body when charging it up overnight.
- A battery explosion if you expose it to extremely high temperatures while charging (which is unlikely). The best way to avoid an explosion is by keeping your batteries cool at all times and not trying any DIY repairs on them unless you really know what you’re doing!
