What is airplane mode?
Airplane mode (or Airplane mode) is a setting available on most smartphones, laptops and similar devices. When you enable airplane mode, it will stop all transmissions from the device. You can see an airplane icon in your phone’s status bar, when this mode is activated.
This feature is called airplane mode because many airlines prohibit the use of wireless devices on planes, especially during takeoff and landing. There is some debate about whether phones can interfere with the radio equipment in the plane, but most think that “prevention is better than cure”.
Does turning on airplane mode help to charge the battery faster?
The answer is yes. Many experiments have proven that electronic devices will charge faster if switched to airplane mode.
In normal states, your mobile phone or laptop (wired, wi-fi on) will continuously transmit and receive signal waves. Especially when the phone has the location feature turned on, the transmission and reception of signal waves are more active. This is also one of the reasons why your phone or laptop is always good in an active state, the underground battery gradually drains even though you don’t use any applications.
Therefore, when switching the device to airplane mode (almost interrupting all signal transmission), charging will become faster. However, the time saved from this method compared to conventional charging is only about 10%. For normal users, this meager difference almost does not affect the usage process. You can completely charge without switching to airplane mode.
