Struggling With An Android Smartphone That Doesn’t Charge? Here’s What Causes It

At a long day’s end; you find your phone on the brink of drying. To make it active again; you plug it in, but nothing happens. 

Now, this can be very frustrating feeling, especially when smartphones have become such an integral part of your livelihood. More bad news is, such issues are difficult to diagnose as it can happen due to vivid reasons. 

  • Your smartphone refuses to charge properly…
  • Or it could be charging very slowly…
  • Or, it charges so slowly that it uses more power than gaining it…

Charging Port:- 

The first major reason why your smartphone doesn’t charge properly is when your charging port is distorted or obstructed. 

Primarily there are a couple of aspects to check- the wall adapter and the charging cable- namely the latter as they endure a lot of wrapping, re-wrapping, flexing. 

You trying to plug them in weird angles doesn’t help the cause either. All these can lead to damaging the cable and hence prevent the device from charging completely. 

Software Crash:- 

Charging is not a hardware issue but a software one. The smartphone needs software to detect if the charger is plugged in, and so if the software crashes, the device will not charge as well as it ought to. 

A reboot, also known as a software reset helps clear out all the apps and data from the RAM apart from your saved data. It also helps clear out the unnecessary processes which could be running behind the screen hence causing a drain on the battery while it is still charging. 

Software Update Third-Party Applications:- 

Some apps may hinder the device’s ability to charge properly. This is mainly in older android models, and if you update its existing OS, then it may result in your device charging slowly. 

Using The Phone While It Put On Charge:-  

There are a lot of people who have a habit of using their smartphones while it is still charging. The apps that are in use consumes a good % of the charge and puts pressure on the battery to sustain any. Due to this excess load on the battery, it also charges slowly. 

So, one suggestion would be not to play games or watch movies when your low-on-charge device is plugged in. In some instances; when you use the device while it charges, the battery consumption may be so high that it might not charge at all- neither does it lose. This gives off the impression that your phone won’t charge even while being connected to its charger. 

To determine the root of such battery troubles; you should not use your device and allow it to charge fully. And if you notice that your device still doesn’t charge, then speak to our phone repair technicians. They will inspect your Android device thoroughly and try to resolve the issue as soon as possible. 

If It Has Suffered From a Minor Water Damage:- 

Another distinct possibility why your android device doesn’t charge as well as it ought to could be due to minor water damage.

Another thing which we would suggest you is never to charge your device during the night. This could cause overheating of the device and also a potential explosion.
