Are you charging your mobile phone correctly?

Are you charging your mobile phone correctly?

A mistake that most of us are probably guilty of making is how we charge our mobile phones. Phone batteries have a habit of going flat at the most inconvenient of times.The best way to charge a phone is on a flat surface which is dry and free from soft furnishings. However, this can also mean that you might miss an important phone call or can't continue with that live chat in comfort!

This can lead to dangerous methods of phone charging which leaves the phone at risk of overheating and fire. A young girl was electrocuted whilst charging her phone as she was in the bath. This highlights why we do not have electrical sockets in the bathroom (that's for another blog post!).

When charging your phone can be dangerous?

As electricians in Sleaford, we have seen an increase in damaged sockets where the wrong type of charger ha been used when charging items such as smartphones.Typically this is when universal chargers are being used which are not compatible with the type of phone being charged.

A recent survey sent to UK householders reveal the dangerous risks that UK householders take when carrying out work on their home electrics.

Whilst not all DIY electrical work is illegal, it does require a common sense approach. It is perfectly legal for you to carry out like for like DIY replacements in your home, so
if you are looking to replace some lights in your living room or replace a damaged socket front you can do this - but only if you feel confident in doing so.

However it seems as though householders are not aware that they are breaking the law as they carry out some high scale electrical projects in their homes. The main
problem of course here is that there is no guarantee that the work is safe nor is it certified maeaning the work not only puts the home and family members at risk but it
could also cause problems at a later date if the house were to be sold.

The majority of our customers don't understand what Part P actually means. However most customers have heard of NAPIT and feel these 'letters' mean something good and they should look for them when searching for an electrician.

Whilst the true meaning of what NAPIT does or means never springs to mind in 90% of cases, it is known for being a mark of quality and a safe, high standard of workmanship by registered Electricans in Sleaford.

This is huge piece of mind for customers who struggle to find the right electrician and cannot be excpected to understand the meaning of the Part P building regulation.

So why have we always been and always will be a NAPIT registered electrician?Quite simply,it is for my customers piece of mind, not just for the fact they recognise NAPIT as a mark of quality but also for our belief in each and every job being carried out to the same high standard and ensuring customer satisfaction at the end.
