Charging your phone in bed is not a good idea. It may cause a fire

As the CPR Kids fanpage proves, sleeping in bed with a smartphone poses a serious risk of fire risk. One of the last entries shows that this kind of habit can be extremely dangerous for the owner of the phone.

A dangerous habit

CPR Kids was inspired to create an entry on this subject during the last Christmas, during which many young people could receive electronic gadgets as gifts. Regardless of whether it is smartphones or tablets, the founders of the website urge parents to monitor how their children use their devices.

The Facebook entry above shows clearly what the effects of charging the phone in bed can be. The five uploaded photos show burn marks on the sheets, next to a visibly damaged charging cable. Both the mattress and bedding are highly flammable, and phones and chargers can heat up quickly, so if left unattended for long periods of time, there is a real risk of fire.

Recommendations for electronics owners

Among the comments it is suggested that parents always make sure that their children never charge electronics in bed. Equipment should always be charged in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations. This means that it should be placed on a flat surface, with no flammable materials around. Additionally, the owner should make sure that there are no foreign objects in the connector or plug that could lead to failure.

The creators of the fanpage believe that you should also avoid cheap accessories, such as cables that replace original cables or chargers produced by the manufacturer of our smartphone or tablet. Cheap replacements could have been produced without meeting the appropriate quality criteria, so using them may result in damage to the equipment and even electric shock and fire.
