It's a long time since I had a cell phone, but as I recall, you can't put a phone on charge (or to charge). They don't charge themselves. You have to put it on a charger so the charger can charge it.

So I like 2 and 3. But check your spelling of charge and charged!

I can accept — and would probably say — 'I put my phone on charge' or 'I put my phone on the charger'.

You don't need to say 'I put my phone on the charger to charge', because there's no other reason for putting a phone on the charger.

Everybody should get into the habit of checking their posts before hitting Submit New Thread​ or Post Quick Rreply, and proofreading them again while you still have time to correct any mistakes by means of Edit Post.
