Smartphone not charging? Apply this simple trick

There are a number of reasons why your Android phone or iPhone may not charge. It could be due to rusting of charging ports or damaged cable. There is a common problem with the charge port.  The port is usually blocked by dust filling and the cable doesn’t fit properly.

There is no cover on the charging port of the phone, as a result of which dirt and other debris can be easily collected there.

In the beginning this is not a problem but over time these dust and debris start to accumulate and when the charging cable is connected to each other it is not possible to charge gradually.

If you have had a phone for more than 6 months and are experiencing problems with gradual charging, the dust in the port may be the reason behind it.

But the good news is that the solution is very simple.

For this, take a toothpick or any thin and long thing which can be put inside the port, if it is made of wood or plastic, it is better so that no harm can be done to the port.

Insert your tool into the charging knob and take it to the end and then gently start scratching.

The iPhone has to be scratched back and forth, while in the USB port it has to be done around the charging connector, this connector is in the middle of the port.

Abrasions quickly loosen the accumulated waste and make it easier to remove from the port.

You may be surprised to see how much rubbish was inside the port and yes don’t forget to gently scrape around the port but carefully.

When a large amount of garbage comes out, then re-install the charging cable to see if there is any problem.

Most likely, the charging will start and if not, take out the garbage again and charge again.

If the problem is still not solved then decide to buy a solution like new cable or charge
