How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Phones Slow Charging Problem
There are four basic hardware-related reasons that your Mobile could be charging slowly, and I will explain each of them in turnand in order of increasing probability. The issue could be:
- There is dirt, dust, or debris lodged in the charging port.
- The power adapter is damaged or faulty.
- The USB cable is no longer working properly.
- You are using the wrong power adapter for your phone, or a weak USB port.
DIRT IN THE CHARGING PORT
After using your charger for a while, it’s possible that dirt or debris is stuck inside the charging port, blocking the connectors, which is making it difficult for your Samsung Galaxy S9 to charge quickly. You can use a toothpick to clean up the dust, but be careful not to cause permanent damage to the charging port. You can try blowing in the port to clear out very light dust but do not get moisture in the port when you do so.
DAMAGED POWER ADAPTER
If the issue is a result of a broken power adapter, you can make certain by checking your device screen. Whenever you plug in your charger, there is always a message that says ‘fast charging is enabled.’ This message notifies you that your power adapter is working properly to quickly charge your Samsung Galaxy phone. If you can’t see the message when you plug in your charger, then you should consider replacing the power adapter.
FAULTY USB CABLE
To be sure that the issue is with the USB cable, you can use another USB cable from a colleague or friend (so that you will be certain the problem is with the cable and not something else) to test if the issue persists. If a different cable solves the issue then it’s time to get a new USB cable. Luckily, they aren’t expensive and can be found on Amazon or in basically every department store or dollar store.
CLEARING THE BACKGROUND APPS
There are times when some apps will be running in the background of your Samsung Galaxy phone, and you won’t even know they are active. These apps can, obviously, drain the battery, and they can make your battery charge slowly and also consume your Samsung Galaxy phone’s internal memory.
TO CLEAR THE BACKGROUND APPS
- Click and hold a space on your Home screen.
- Release your finger as soon as the list of recently used apps appears.
- Click on the Task Manager.
- Click on the option to End All Applications.
- Tap on the RAM option.
- Delete the RAM.
