How to Charge a Phone with a Broken Charging Port

Posted: 27 Nov, 2022.

No one wants their phone to reach 0% battery. But if your charging port is broken, you might be struggling to get your phone powered up. With these tips, you can determine the problem with your charging port and see how you can charge your phone if it’s broken.

Check if the charging port is the problem

If your phone isn’t charging, the first thing to do is check what’s causing the issue. There are many reasons why a phone won’t charge, including a fault with the software or the battery itself. There could also be a problem with the charger you’re using.

Make sure you’re using a high-quality charging cable, like MAGFAST Lux. Lux is super strong and durable and even comes with a limited Lifetime Warranty. We know that our cables will last for a long time when they’re treated right, and so you won’t need to worry about them failing – if they do, will send you a replacement.

You should also check the charger you’re using. If you’re using a charger that plugs into the wall outlet, you should check that the outlet is working by plugging in another device. You should also try to use a different charger or charging cable. If the phone still won’t charge, it might be an issue with the phone.

You can check it’s not an issue with the software by making sure your phone has the latest update downloaded and installed. You can also try turning your phone off and on again, which can sometimes reset any bugs which are causing a glitch with the charging software.

If you’ve tried all of the above and your phone still won’t charge, it may be a fault with the charging port.

Clean the charging port

If you believe the charging port is stopping your phone from charging, you should start by cleaning the port. Over time, dirt and debris can enter the port and build up. This will prevent the charger from connecting properly and passing power through to the phone.

Turn your phone off and then try to clean anything out of the port. You can use a soft dry toothbrush to dislodge any debris, or you can use a cotton swab. You should avoid using toothpicks or paper clips as these can damage the delicate components inside the charging port.

If you notice dirt falling from the port as you clean, it is likely that this is what was preventing your phone from charging. Once you’ve cleaned the port, try charging the phone again.

Use wireless charging

It may be that the charging port is damaged. It might have become loose, or the pins might be bent or broken. If this is the case, it will need to be repaired for you to be able to use it.

However, you may be able to charge your phone via wireless charging. Many modern cell phones have wireless charging enabled, so you can charge your phone without using the charging port. This is a great way of keeping your phone powered up until you can get the charging port fixed.

Wireless charging is often slower than cabled charging, and so you’ll want to ensure you’re using a premium Qi wireless charger, like MAGFAST chargers, to get the fastest and most efficient charge for your device. Our chargers use state-of-the-art Qi wireless charging technology so you can simply place your phone on the charging zone to give it a quick boost of power.
