In general, the more you charge your phone while driving, the less range your car will have. Charging the phone while driving is not a big problem when you are using an electric car, but when you are using a car powered by gas, it becomes a big problem.
This is because a car uses a lot of power when starting. For an electric car, the car needs to use a lot of electricity in order to start its engine. Therefore, when the owner of an electric car starts the engine, he will lose some of the battery power.
If the car is not used for a while, then it will lose the charge completely.
This is not a big problem if the car is not used for a couple of hours, because the owner can put it on charge while driving. But if he is driving a car powered by gas, then he cannot charge the phone while driving.
Otherwise, he will run out of gas, which is not a good idea.
You see, electric cars, solar panels and even your cell phone all use the same thing – DC power! Before we answer this question, let’s first get to know about DC power and then see how does it affect an electric car’s range.
Charging the vehicle while driving is possible, but it will not charge the battery as much as if it is charged when the vehicle is parked. This is because while the vehicle is moving, the regenerative braking will also be taking place, which will also charge the battery. So, the overall charging efficiency will be lesser when the vehicle is moving.
While it is not recommended to charge your phone while driving, there are no real dangers involved in doing it.
Your phone is powered by a lithium ion battery and an electric vehicle is powered by a lithium ion battery.
The only difference is that the former is a portable, handheld device while the latter is a car. So a fully charged phone will have no impact on your electric vehicle’s range.
However, your phone’s battery will eventually drain while you are driving and thus, the electric vehicle will have to run on the battery and there are chances that the vehicle’s range will be impacted due to this.
