    Because of the high-pressure sparking phenomenon caused by poor contact, pressing and sparking will oxidize the metal layer of the plug, leaving a layer of black substance after oxidation, which is oxidation.

    Oxidation is also called oxidation reaction. During the reaction of organic matter, the action of introducing or removing hydrogen from organic matter is called oxidation; the action of introducing hydrogen or losing oxygen is called reduction. Substances react slowly with oxygen to slowly generate heat without luminescence, which is called slow oxidation, such as metal corrosion and biological respiration. Vigorous luminous and heat-generating oxidation is called combustion.

    Precautions for charging with mobile phone charger

    1. Don’t make calls while charging.

    In the charging state, the insulation between the parts with dangerous voltage and the accessible conductive parts is broken down or the contact current is too large, which can easily cause electric shock to the user.

    The original chargers are like a small power supply bureau with over-voltage protection circuits and transformer devices, which can convert high voltage to low voltage and convert AC power to DC power.

    1. Qualified quality is the key.

    When buying a charger, be sure to choose qualified products from regular manufacturers, and don’t try to buy unqualified products from unqualified manufacturers.

    1. Pay attention to ventilation and heat dissipation.

    Voltage of the phone is higher than the standby state when charging, if you use an unqualified battery or charger, and the charging environment is poor. Such as high temperature, humidity, etc., accidents may occur.
