Be it Samsung Galaxy, Motorola, Xiaomi, HTC, Nokia or Micromax – among the most common grouse on all these smartphones is slow charging or no charging. Do you plug your micro USB cable into charging port for hours together only to find the charge level to go up to 10%? Or worse still the phone has absolutely stopped taking charge? Worry not. We give you 5 simple steps to get top notch charging performance.
1.Change the charging cable: With you using micro USB cable interchangeably across different phones, may be its time that you again switch the cable. If the cable doesn’t seem to be the problem, check the wall plug adapter, as adapter may be the issue. Ensure that the same charger/cable combination works on a different device as this will help you eliminate the possibility that it is your device, not the cable or charger.
2.Clean the charging port: Many a times the reason behind your phone not charging properly is because there is some debris blocking the connection. Clean the micro USB port on your phone- it might be blocked with pocket lint, dirt or other minute rubbish.
3.Toothpick Fix: Due to continual plugging and unplugging of the microUSB cable, the metallic surfaces inside the charging port do not make correct contact with the cable. All you need to do is shut down your device, remove the battery and use toothpick to ‘lever up’ the little tab inside the USB port on your smartphone or tablet. Do so very carefully and gently, then reinsert your battery and plug it in. Most likely this should solve your problem.
4.Replace Battery: May be the battery in your phone is past its use by date. Try replacing the battery, especially if it appears swollen or out of shape.
5.Visit experts: If none of the above fixes work it’s time to visit experts. The charging port on your phone might be burned or the problem might be with the charging IC on the motherboard. Visit experts at http://www.JustLikeNew.in or simply call 1800-3000-5304
