    I have kept it charged in my room.

    Hi,

    Mina: Hey! Where is your mobile phone?
    Me: I have kept it charged in my room.

    Is the bold part okay?

    Not if you mean that you have left it on-charge in your room.

    Re: I have kept it charged in my room.

    UM Chakma, do you mean 'I left it charging in my room' or 'It's on charge in my room'?

    Re: I have kept it charged in my room.

    Yes, exactly that is what I meant but unfortunately I didn't know how to say it. Now I think I can. Let's check.

    I left it it on-charge in my room. (Bhai)
    I left it charging in my room. (Rover)

    Do both mean the same?

    You wouldn't hear "on-charge" in AmE. We would say it was charging.

    Re: I have kept it charged in my room.

    I've never seen or used "on charge" with a hyphen as Bhai wrote it. I would say "It's in my room, charging" or "It's on charge in my room". They mean the same thing - the phone is plugged into the mains power in order to charge the battery.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
