5 Easy Ways to Fix Slow charging on Smartphones

My Note 5 says it is going to take 6 hours to be fully
charged from 10%….When I first got the phone is was charging very fast, about
20-30% up to full in a little under an hour…now I need to charge it all
Anyone else have this issue or have a solution?

What causes my phone to charge slow? Is it the battery or
the phone inside?????????
That was the message I got from a concern user and I’ll try
my possible best to proffer a solution to it. More contributions are welcome
via the comment.
How to Fix Slow charging on Your Android/iOS Device
>>Replace The Charging Cable: Many times, it is the
micro-USB to USB cable that is the culprit. These cables lose their efficiency
over time and therefore can’t provide enough current to charge the
Change the Micro-USB to cable. Either purchase a new original
one or borrow the one that’s being used on other device.
>>Use Airplane Mode: Airplane mode on your smartphone
can significantly improve the charging process by decreasing the charging time.
The only disadvantage is that you would not be able to communicate with others
through mobile network or internet.
>>Stay Away From Phone While Charging: Using your
smartphone while charging is not healthy to your device. It put a negative
impact on your Android’s battery life. It puts battery under heavy load and
cause the device to heat up.
Do this;
Close/End all the applications that are
Turn off WiFi,
Bluetooth and GPS
Charging From Powerbanks, Laptops or PC:
A lot of us do this but while they
can charge your device using USB ports, it is still not a best idea to do so.
USB ports on Computers are meant for transferring data, they do not enough
current for a device to charge. Hence, slow charging.
E.g Output Current of USB
  • USB
    2.0 can provide up to 500mA
  • USB
    3.0 can provide up to 900mA
you don’t have a charger nearby and using PC USB port as a last resort. It
would be great if you connect your device to a USB 3.0 (blue) port.
Replace Your Battery:
If you’ve been using your device for more than 1 year,
and it takes more than 3hours to charge and less than 5hours to discharge, then
it’s time to look for a replacement.
the highest form of abnormality is for your device to be charging for more than
4hours and it still didn’t get to 100% full charge.

  1. Hello prof, please how do i root my infinix hot 4 pro? My hot 4 pro was bricked while trying to root it but i just got another one today cos it can't be unbricked even after taking it to computer village. Pls, i need to root it badly..

  2. In my quest to get a better charger to charge my phone faster,i ended up with one that killed the phone completely. Immediately I plugged the charger to my phone,it started charging and then went off. It has refused to come on since then. Took it to be checked and the guy said the board has been burnt. Told me to forget about the phone cos the board is more expensive or equivalent to the cost price of my Infinix hot 3. Took it to slot and the price they called for me was more than the cost price of the phone. I've abandoned the phone now and gone back to my old blackberry I thought I was done with. So sad.

  3. Pls oga yomi,am using innjoo fire,my phone usualy heat up,and went off when browsing with it, pls any solution,and where can i get battery if need be,thanks.

    • InnJoo fire has always been known as a notorious phone whose follow come battery swells up like a forsaken bread and up till now InnJoo hasn't come up with any solution to it.

      Yes, there is solution. disable unused applications running at your phone background. uninstall apps you are not using from your phone. Reboot your device and you are good to go.

  4. My infinix hot 4 x556 is charging slowly have already try many charger. Even have change the complete down board. Dsame…. Want can i do please

    • Remember, not all chargers are original. I’ll advice you to put ur phone in flight mode, then charge it. If it charge faster, then some applications install on ur fone is causing it to charge slowly.
