What is bypass charging on Samsung smartphones?

Bypass charging allows users to bypass charging on their Galaxy phones. That is, you can use the charge from the power outlet while plugged in without it charging the phone’s battery. So, when it’s being done, your phone’s battery status is not affected. It neither increases nor decreases.

When not in use, the phone reverts back to its regular battery usage pattern. The advantage of bypass charging is that you can spare the burden of battery strains when it is not required.  

If your Galaxy device has no bypass charging, it works as usual. The power goes to the battery first before other components of the phone can access it.

What are the benefits?

Bypass charging has many benefits. Especially if you are a heavy phone user and also a gamer who uses the phone plugged in, this feature is for you.

  1. Heating from charging is averted
    Bypass charging avoids your phone from heating during charging. Playing games, and using graphically intensive apps can also raise your phone’s temperature. So, when charging and playing or using apps, your phone’s SoC works to its maximum. Bypass charging averts heat on your phone coming from charging which also makes it easier to handle and perform smoothly. Although remember that the feature works while playing games only.
  2. Battery cycles maintained
    Every phone comes with limited battery cycles and Galaxy devices are no exception. After completing its battery cycles, your phone’s battery starts under-performing before becoming noticeably unbearable. Bypass charging avoids the phone’s other components from having an access to the battery. In essence, bypass charging doesn’t use the battery as it is not charged in the first place. So, battery cycles are saved.
  3. Better battery health
    Theoretically, bypass charging maintains battery health. When the feature is toggled on, the battery is not affected or influenced by charging from the power outlet. So, if you want to prolong the battery of your phone, and optimize its health the best way possible, the feature is helpful.
