The importance of charging your phone

Using your phone naturally depletes its battery, using it constantly, having multiple apps constantly open, or using other phone functionalities simultaneously only hastens the process. Charging your phone is a requirement to continue operating your phone, although there are wireless charging outlets available for some phones, people generally charge their phones through a USB & plug.

How often should you charge your phone?

You should generally charge your phone when it is almost depleted, of course, you may charge it to ‘top up’ your battery before making a journey. But charging it as little as possible (without the phone dying) is the most effective method of preserving your battery’s longevity.

Can you leave a phone plugged in once it’s fully charged?

You can, but doing so can eventually result in your phone’s battery being affected. You should aim to remove your phone from charge as soon as you become aware that is fully charged. 

Why isn’t my iPhone 13 Pro Max charging?

Whether you have an iPhone 13 Pro Max, or any other phone, there are common themes that can stop it from charging, here are the most common causes.
  • Water damage in the charging port
  • Dust and grime that have accumulated in the charging port
  • The component that receives the charge is either broken or out of place
  • The charger itself has broken
  • The charger’s output is broken, filled with dirt or grime, or bent out of place.
Our charging port repair services are only £65, bringing your charger along with your phone is the best way for us to run a diagnostic that can allow us to identify what is preventing your phone from charging, and it could just be that you need a new charger, saving you money.

Troubleshooting charging

The easiest way to see if your phone is at fault or your charger is by simply try using another charger (for the same model of phone as yours) or even a different USB, if this doesn’t result in any changes then it is extremely likely that your phone is at fault.

Apple Warranties

In the case of Apple, you have a standard manufacturer warranty, however, the likelihood is that accidental damage isn’t covered under your warranty. (Check this before making any choices repair-wise). That being said, you can still go to Apple to get repairs outside the warranty. However, you will be paying for this service.

Apple extended warranty

Apple does have an additional support plan for your Apple devices, called AppleCare+ which greatly subsidises the cost of phone repairs and gives you access to more support services, like 24-hour priority calling, however, you still have to pay a monthly fee of £9.99, this might not be worth it, along with a cheaper price to repair the fault at hand

Phone shop  repair prices

However, we can guarantee our level of service and expertise will make our repair the best value for your money. Additionally, we can answer any concerns you have, and provide tips to keep your device in the best condition.

Can I repair my charger at home?

Unless you are qualified in repairing electronics, have all the necessary equipment, and safety equipment/precautions, then you should not attempt to repair it yourself. The potential to cause irreparable damage on your device or its charger is too high, and is not worth the risk whatsoever. Additionally, sourcing individual parts that need to be replaced can make this process more difficult, and longer than it would be had you gone to an expert.

Dangers of repairing your phone charger

There is a risk of electrocution, burns, or causing a fire when tampering with the components of a charger, when it comes to a phone charging port, there is a risk of electrocution, and potential fire hazards too, especially if your home repair compromises the battery of the phone. You must always opt to go through the established channels first such as the manufacturer warranty, along with speaking with a representative of the phone’s model (in this case Apple) to find out the best course of action.  Phone repair shops should always be an option, but only once warranties are out of the question, as certain warranties are voided once you opt to use a 3rd party for repairing your phone. 

Is it worth getting a refurbished phone?

Whether you have an iPhone 13 Pro Max, or any other older phone that is damaged, refurbished phones are often the most economical way of getting a high-quality phone for a relatively low price and still having excellent functionality. But it’s important to distinguish between old, used, second-hand and refurbished phones before you make a purchase. So what’s the difference? Most second-hand phones have been repaired aesthetically but not necessarily functionally, so even though there may not be scratches on the back or cracks on the screen, you don’t know that the phone is working well. On the contrary, refurbished phones have been repaired by professionals so that the inner workings of the phone have been repaired as well as the outside. That makes refurbished phones slightly more expensive than used or second-hand phones, but it’s worth it to know that the phone is working well and won’t need any urgent repairs, or professional phone unlocking
