Black cellphone connected to a black charging cord. The screen has a green battery to indicate it is charging. Laying a charging phone under a pillow or sheet can trap heat inside the cord.

When do you typically charge your phone? When you’re at work? While you’re asleep?

The typical individual charges their phone at night while they sleep. Various studies performed over the last two years have revealed this practice is dangerous and leaves you and your teenagers at risk! Here is the biggest risk factor: Leaving them in the bed while you sleep!

  • The chords we use to charge our phones get hot. If they’re laying on the sheets or under a blanket/comforter, they’re not expelling the heat as they're designed to do. Should the device or cord get too hot, the sheets/blanket/comforter may burn. Devices should be left on nightstands or dressers or shelves on top of a non-flammable object. 

When charging your devices, be sure to use the product as the seller intended they be used. Read the guidelines in the packaging. This quick tip can keep you and your household safe!
