Is it okay to leave smart phone charging on the power outlet and fall asleep?

+11 votes
Sometimes i put my smart phone for charging on the power outlet and then i fall asleep without turning off the power outlet bar. Will the smartphone blast and explode if it continues to charge throughout the night? I mean it was not intentional for me to leave the smart phone charging but sometimes due to the absence of mind. However, i did notice that my smart phone battery started using up juice much faster these days than it used to, when i first bought my smart phone.

It is generally not a good practise to leave your smart phone charging for the whole night while you sleep because your phone battery's life will easily be shortened if you do that often. Also your charger's cable will go bad faster than normal due to extensive charging involved. Besides, sometimes there have been cases where a spark started an small explosion injuring the person sleeping close by. Always charge the phone when you know you will be able to watch out for any danger caused by over charging the phone.
