Glossary definition of AC Wall Charger

AC Wall Charger is an essential accessory for use with mobilephones and other electronic devices. The charger enables the mobile device to be powered, and for its battery to be recharged, by connecting it to a mains electricity supply socket.

AC wall chargers are often the only means of recharging the battery, and are usually supplied with a phone as they are designed to work with a particular product or type of battery. Wall chargers should not be interchanged without first taking advice, or expensive damage could result. Also note that it is normal for chargers to get warm while in use.
