It is not always necessary to have an outlet near you for charge the phone. This is especially true when traveling or in a crowded room with only one or two sockets to charge. Most cell phone users nowadays use an Iphone or hook up to smartphones. Smartphones, even though they sound smart and have made life easier with their nice easy-to-use features, suffer from the battery capacity issue. In any case, the battery life does not exceed one day. This is even worse when your phone is connected to the internet or there are a lot of background applications running on it. Therefore, it is always advisable to carry a power bank with you. But there are also ways to charge your phone via laptop, if you've never heard of them before. Also, until now, we would have thought the phone would only charge while the laptop is on with the flip open.
Charging the phone can be done via the laptop even when you sleep or when the flip is closed. All you need to do is a couple of settings on your system to enable the necessary ones.
