You’ve been experiencing charging troubles with your Android phone lately, right? This is a typical issue that many Android users have to deal with. Fortunately, there are a few methods for determining the root reason of why your Android phone won’t charge and how to resolve the issue.
Phone not charging when plugged in Android
1. Restart Your Phone
To charge your Android phone if you’ve plugged it in and checked to make sure it’s securely attached on both ends but it’s still not charging, the first thing you should attempt is to reboot your phone. Certain applications that operate in the background may have an adverse effect on battery life.
A reset will terminate these services and enable the phone to begin over from the beginning. To restart your phone, press and hold the Power button until a menu appears on the screen, from which you may choose the Restart option.
2. Put Your Phone in Safe Mode
In the event that you’ve done everything, including resetting your phone, and your Android smartphone is still not charging, consider putting your phone into safe mode. Due to the fact that your phone is only capable of running the software that came with it when in Safe mode, this helps you to identify whether any third-party programmes on your phone are causing the problem.
To enter safe mode on the vast majority of Android devices, press and hold the Power button for a couple of seconds. To enter Safe mode, press and hold the Power off button on the screen for a few seconds. Following your completion of Safe Mode, restart your phone in the regular manner of operation.
If you see that your phone is charging while in safe mode, you may safely assume that one of the third-party applications installed on your phone is the source of the charging problems on your phone. If the problem persists, try uninstalling any of the programmes you’ve recently downloaded and see if that helps.
3. Try Another Charging Cable
4. The USB Port Needs a Fix on Android
It’s possible that the continuous plugging and unplugging caused some of the metallic surfaces within the USB port to get damaged. This will result in poor communication and your phone may either stop charging or charge very slowly if this is the case.

Turn off your electronic gadget (and remove your battery, too, if the phone model allows that). Make use of a little object, such as a toothpick, to “lever up” the tiny tab located within the USB port of your device. Make careful to approach this with as much gentleness as you possibly can. As soon as you’re finished, plug your phone back in and check whether it begins to charge.
You could also try cleaning the charging port, particularly if there is a build-up of filth that can be seen with the naked eye due to the build-up of dust. To thoroughly clean it, use a dry cotton swab to wipe it off before connecting in the charging wire again.
Probably to your surprise, a surprising amount of dust and other particles can sneak inside your phone. If your phone was not in the pocket where you were enjoying your snack, it is likely that some dirt from other sources made its way into your phone’s compartment.
5. The Wall Adapter Might Not Be Working
A second option to explore is to use a charger that can be removed from the cord if you have one of such models. It’s possible that the continuous removal of the cable has caused harm to the USB port. Switching adapters will allow you to determine if the issue is with the adapter or with the computer.
You could always ask a buddy if you could borrow theirs, or you could always purchase a new one. Connecting your gadget to a PC or a power bank might also be beneficial. If it charges, then you should definitely attempt to get your hands on a replacement adaptor as soon as possible after that.
6. Install Ampere on Android
Installing Ampere on your Android phone will ensure that your phone is fully charged at all times. It’s completely free and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. It provides a wealth of information on the health and performance of your battery. The amount of electricity being pulled, the build ID, the Android version, the temperature, and whether it is a battery or an alternating current charge are all shown.
