Been leaving my phone plugged in all night for 20 years, most of the worlds population who own phones will. What's the problem ?

I got this it's ok as a basic alarm, but when the alarm goes of with the radio the sound gets louder louder & louder within 5 seconds. I suppose it does it's job as it does get you out off bed, but it's a bit annoying.
Heat added for the price.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a USB charger with a built-in timer. But I do agree with not leaving on charge after it gets to 100%.

It over chargers the phone shortening battery life. They say you should keep it between 20 and 80% never charging to 100% to prolong battery life.
Phones are a bit more intelligent these days and will manage the power and just trickle charge once the battery is full. Feel your phone and charger in the morning, they won't be very warm as there's hardly and power being used.

When the phone gets to 100% it stops taking power from the source, then trickle charges taking power as it needs it to keep at 100% and almost everyone does it, ive done it for at least 20 years never had a problem and my battery doesn't wear out faster than others, if it is true, the effect it has is so minimal its not worth commenting warning people on here

I have set up a smart plug on a timer so it comes on about 40 mins before I get up. I also follow the 80% max rules as I hand my phones down to the wife and kids. As you can't replace batteries easily now I need to try keep them in as good shape as possible.

Not saying you should or shouldn't was just answering your original question. In the real world when your working all day the only option is to charge at night.

Install Accubattery and see the state of your battery? If its 100% then fine but I think you may be in for a surprise. Just as an FYI you need to charge and discharge a few times so you won't be able to get a value for a few weeks.

I already know about this, it proves nothing because even a phone which has been unplugged at 100% every time will no longer have the ability to reach 100% capacity.
Only way this would show anything would be to buy four new phones and charge two over night for a few months and charge two until 100% each day and then unplug and compare the results two or three months down the line.
But that doesn't change the fact that i could get two days out of my mate 20 pro new and now 10 months later i still get a similar amount of usage out of it after it being plugged in overnight for around 300 days straight, so not worth mentioning, charging overnight is fine
Well given that cordless landline phone handsets have sat on their charging holders 24/7 for about 20 years without the world spontaneously imploding, I wouldn't lose too much sleep over this one tbh.
We have this clock and the display is really bright even on it's dimmest setting
Grey is also same price 914/5753
