'Love and Hip Hop' star Teairra Mari just learned a tough lesson -- you can get charged for not getting a phone charge.

You might remember ... Mari allegedly went nuts on an Uber driver in July after he refused to let her charge her cellphone. The driver claims Mari began to punch him and stole his charger -- forcing him to pull over. 

Prosecutors bought the driver's story and on Friday Mari was charged with battery and theft -- both misdemeanors. She was also hit with a vandalism charge but it's not clear where that came from. 

Mari faces possible jail time, where at least she won't have to worry about her phone's battery life.
