- When the phone is plugged, there is an active current that runs from the outlet to your phone. And when the phone touches your skin, the current might be transmitted to your body.
- There might be unforeseen phone or charger defects that may cost your life.
- Parents and teachers must be aware of this and should pass on this information to their children or students if you are a teacher.
