Magnetic Port

Hi guys!

So i'd been using a few magnetic charging cables and i saw that its magnetic field had deteriorated.

I mean it felt a little weak compared when i first charge it using the magnetic port(maybe i'm paranoid).I tried with other,new arrived cable and it felt the same.

So eliminate the cable's magnet being weak i started thinking that maybe overheating Z1(during intensive gaming and internet-surfing) might burn-off the magnetic field of the magnet at the magnetic port of Z1(according to law of physics).

So guys,anyone thinking/having the same?Or maybe to re-magnetize the magnet? Hahahah

Much Thanks!

Re: Magnetic Port

There is no magnet in the phones merely a metal plate - The magnet is on the charging cable and the two pins are just a conductive means of transferring power - Heat etc will not diminish the properties of metal thus render it not a metal, If you are using different cables then it's possible the different strengths are swaying your thoughts

Re: Magnetic Port

Ohhh i see

So yeah i'm pretty paranoid.Or maybe indeed the cables were already de-magnetized a little bit when arrived.

Btw thanks alot @Thommo !!
