We're reasonably skeptical about this one...

But respectable website Business Insider tried it and said it worked!

It's just a fact of life we deal with that our phones are a major part of life and they will very quickly run out of battery. 

Here are some tips for cutting your charging time:

  • Use a wall charger. It's more efficient. The iPad wall charger is the fastest charging of the apple range.
  • Turn on airplane mode. This actually helps speed up the charging process.
  • Don't turn the screen on or check it while charging - that uses battery.

Business Insider got the iPhone to 100 per cent using this method, compared to the control method's five per cent, in five minutes.
