Cannot charge via USB source.

2020-01-02, 23:20 PM

Hello. I have 48% on my battery so I thought I would just charge it by connecting the zoom to a LG zero client. I have priviously charged my Nokia with no problem. So the Zoom showed a charging singal when connected, but 30 mins later, it was still 48%? Any input? Thanks

Hi.

 

It should charge, though I can't know for certain how your USB ports may be set up. Do other devices charge okay on that port, and have you tried any of the other ports on the same machine?

 

I am going to run my zoom down (it's charged) and see what results I get from USB charging.

Yes. I charged my Nokia 8.1 before and it works. The Zoom has a "charging" symbol but just stayed at 48%. The % dropped to 47% when I used the phone to do simply tasks such as checking emails (no heavy usages such as playing video games or watching YouTube).

Hi.

 

The online specs for your device indicate it should charge, though the ports are USB 2.0, not the more powerful USB 3.0 ports. I'm not an expert on USB (maybe I can find one) but from some searching it looks like some devices are set up so the USB ports "share" the power output. That could potentially drop the power too low effectively charge. 

 

Does the phone charge fine otherwise? And did you try other ports on your device?
