Why Did My Phone Stop Charging?

Why Did My Phone Stop Charging? A Lint Story

The Silent Charging Port Killer

Have you noticed that it has become increasingly difficult to charge your phone? Do you need to hold your charging cable at weird angles just to make a connection? Wrapping or forcing your cable to charge are temporary fixes that can be harmful to your phone. Fortunately, there is a fix. It just might not be what you think. To answer the question, “Why Did My Phone Stop Charging?” we have to first shift our focus to a place that millions of people have in their very homes. The laundry room.

Pocket-Lint, Really?

Yes. Pocket-lint. We have worked on hundreds of phones with “broken charging ports”. A few of our customers have visited us after Apple told them they needed an expensive repair or even a new phone.

Over time pocket-lint and dust build up in the bottom of your charging port. As a result, every time you charge your phone, the lightning cable compacts the lint. Compacted in such a way that even canned air or duster can’t dislodge the debris. To remove the debris we need a narrow and rigid tool. Toothpicks will not work. If you don’t feel comfortable cleaning your charging port, bring it by one of our shops. We do charge port cleanings for free.

If you don’t feel comfortable cleaning your charging port, bring it by one of our shops. We do charging port cleanings for free.

Unfortunately, we do see phones that have damaged charging ports that can’t be fixed by a simple cleaning. Since these ports are one of the most vulnerable spots of your device, they can be affected by the elements of day-to-day life. As a result, your phone may need a charging port flex cable repair. All of our shops are equipped to do these repairs on-site. Don’t be stuck wondering, “Why Did My Phone Stop Charging?”. We have the solution for you.
