How to charge the phone via USB?

In the age of universal telephony, people of all ages have cell phones — from schoolchildren to retired people. It would seem that such a problem as charging the phone can not arise. However, it occurs, especially if the phones are special. We will try to figure out how to charge the phone via USB, and what is needed for this.

Types of ports

Specify that USB ports are of three types:

  • Standard USB 2.0
  • Mini usb
  • Micro usb

Standard USB 2.0 ports are mandatory on computers. Phones are equipped with mini or micro connectors. Each phone in the kit must include a charging cable. In case of its failure or loss, such a cable can be purchased at office equipment stores.

Ways to charge your phone

  • The easiest way is to charge through an electrical outlet. In this case, the cable connector is inserted into the USB port of the phone, and the plug into the outlet. The indicator on the phone display starts to flash, indicating that the charging process has begun. When the indicator blinks, charging is complete.
  • The following is a method of charging from the computer. To do this, you must have a cable with two connectors: with a standard USB 2.0 interface on one side and mini or micro USB (it depends on which port your phone is equipped with) on the other. By connecting the phone and computer using a cable, you can charge.
  • There is a third way. Modern car stereos are equipped with a USB port for listening to audio recordings from flash media. This USB port can also be used to charge the phone. Charging is also performed using a USB cable provided the car radio is turned on.

Now I understand how to charge the phone via USB. Please note that for the implementation of such charging does not require installation of any program on the phone. Charging is automatic.
