The problem of charger cables that are short-lived, easily damaged, or not durable, seems to be experienced by quite a lot of iPhone users.
In fact, sometimes people buy a new iPhone while also buying a spare charger cable in anticipation when the main cable is damaged.
Although Apple devices are known to have good build quality, the problem of cables that are easily damaged is still felt by some users to this day. In fact, the price to buy a new original iPhone charger cable is also not cheap.
The form of damage to the iPhone charger cable in general is peeling rubber coating. If the peeling rubber is left too long, the cables and connectors can break.
Usually, most people when they find the rubber coating has started to peel, will cover it with tape. Please note, this method can not last long because usually the peeling part will spread.
But, you dont have to worry. Actually there are some tips that can be used to extend the life of the iPhone charger cable.
Avoid charging while running heavy apps
Tips for caring for the iPhone charger cable to make it last longer, the first is to avoid charging or “charging” while running heavy applications, such as games or editing.
This is because the application can absorb a large amount of battery power. Charging while opening heavy applications makes the charger temperature increase or become hot due to working too hard during the charging process.
The hot temperature can cause the charger cable, which is made of rubber, to peel.
Use a charger cable protector
The easy to peel iPhone charger cable can also be avoided by installing a special cable shield. This elongated spiral-shaped tool can be easily found at a mobile phone accessories store or e-commerce store.
You can wrap the protective device around the charge cable to avoid direct contact with hot temperatures or sharp differences.
In addition to the special cable protector, you can also wrap the tape, which is usually used to attach electronic cables, to all parts of the charger cable. It can also make your iPhone charger cable last longer.
Roll up the charger cable properly
Make sure that you wind up the charger cable properly. The charger cable should not be folded carelessly. The cable should also not be rolled too tightly and tightly so that the rubber coating does not bend.
Because folds with sharp corners can make the rubber coating peel off. You can imitate the way you wind the charger cable like the cable reel that Apple makes in the iPhone box. So, you can roll the charger cable in a circle.
In addition, when you pack the charger cable in a container, make sure there are no sharp objects around it. Sharp objects can easily create scratches that cause the rubber coating of the charger cable to peel off.
