How to Fix Common Charging Issues with Your Phone

Charger not working? No problem. Having your charger randomly stop working when your phone’s about to run out of battery is frustrating. If you've restarted your phone but it's still not charging then it's time to look at your cable and charging ports.

Here are some common charging issues with your phone and how to fix them.

Slow charging

Find your phone charging slower than usual? There might be a few issues. First thing’s first, make sure that you’re using the correct charging port and the right power requirements. Using a charger that doesn't match the power requirements of your phone can slow down the charging process. 

Next, check the charging cable for any damage or fraying. If the cable is damaged, it can impede the flow of power to your phone and it’ll be time to replace it. 

You’ll also be surprised to know that a dirty charging port can impede on its charging capabilities. Dirt, dust, and lint can accumulate in the charging port, preventing your phone from charging properly. To clean the port, use a toothpick or a small brush to gently remove any debris.

Phone is not charging at all

If your phone isn't charging at all, the first thing to check is both charger adapter and cable. Make sure that they're plugged in properly and that the cable isn't damaged. If everything looks good, the next step is to check the charging port. Again, dirt and debris can prevent your phone from charging properly, so make sure that the port is clean.

If your phone still isn't charging, then you may have a battery issue. Lithium-ion batteries, which are commonly used in smartphones, can degrade over time and lose their ability to hold a charge. If your phone is more than two years old and you're experiencing charging issues, it may be time to replace the battery.

Battery draining quickly

If your phone's battery is draining quickly, there are several things that could be causing this. First, check your phone's settings to see if there are any apps or features that are using a lot of power. Location services, push notifications, and background app refresh can all drain your battery quickly.

Another possible cause of battery drain is a weak signal. If you're in an area with poor cellular coverage, your phone may be working harder to maintain a connection, which can use up a lot of battery power. Turning on airplane mode or turning off mobile data can help conserve battery life in these situations.


Charging issues with your phone can be frustrating, but there are usually simple solutions. By checking your charger, cable, charging port, and battery, you can quickly diagnose and fix the problem. If you're still experiencing issues after trying these solutions, it may be time to contact your phone's manufacturer or a professional repair service.
