Lenovo K8 Note - slow charging battery issue

2019-09-02, 6:40 AM

I am seeing very slow charging of k8 note recently and it is taking 7 - 8 hours. Tried different chargers and no improvement. Tried safe mode, reset etc but no luck.

 

It is very disappointing.

 

A question to lenovo is, does this have any connection to the software? I had a similar issue when i picked oreo update and got solved at that time after your software patch sometime later for oreo so.

Hey,

 

Yes, it does have a connection with the firmware. Mostly it is a part of the kernel - a software that helps the hardware to communicate with the applications. Most time slow charging is due to bad charger or damaged charging port. Can you download the "Ampere" app from play store? Connect the charger and post back the readings. It should be between 900 to 1800.

Amal

Tried with two official chargers and Ampere showing ~400. One of the charger and cable is new.

400 is too low. DO you see the "turbo charging" notification when plugged in?

I am not seeing Turbor Charging in display (earlier it used to) so I tried with another Motorola Turbo  charger as well but no luck and Ampere showing same results with that charger as well. Do you think it's a port issue?

Yeah, I think. Since you have tried resetting, it could be a hardware issue. Have you tried charging while the device is switched off?

1.check you battery is bad or damaged.

2.If you’re using your PC to charge your phone, then your phone is going to charge very slowly. Even with USB 3.0, the standard energy output is only .9A (.5mA for USB 2.0). That’s under ideal circumstances — any damage to your USB cable or ports can knock that meager flow of energy even lower.

3.Check teh Problem with the Charging Port
4.check the You have a bad cable

 

Way are your Phone Charging Slow, check the tips below:
