Having trouble charging?
Is your phone charging slowly or not charging at all?
Take a break and let your smartphone rest while charging.Browsing the web, watching videos and playing games while your phone is charging will lead to a slower charging rate in order to prevent overheating.
In particular, if multiple apps are running simultaneously or if you run apps that require a connection to a network or other devices, battery consumption may be higher than the charging rate.

We recommend charging your device at room temperature for fast, stable charging.
Use an authentic Samsung charger.If you are charging with a USB cable connected to a computer, the voltage will be less than that of an authentic Samsung charger, resulting in a slow charge. For the best results, we recommend using an authentic Samsung charger.
Check for foreign objects or moisture.- If there is a foreign object stuck inside the USB port or the cable, the device’s safeguard may shut off charging for its protection. With a soft brush, remove the foreign object and try charging again.

Charging with moisture can lead to USB port corrosion and damage to the device.
If the USB port corrodes, visit your nearest service centre for device repair.
Check the cable connection.Charging may be slowed if the cable is not properly connected to the device or charger, if the connector pin is altered due to long periods of use, or if the surface is corroded due to foreign objects.
If charging continues in this state, the device may be damaged or may overheat. We recommend visiting your local Samsung Support Centre for advice.
Will the phone not turn on after connecting the charger?
If the battery is completely depleted, wait until it is 1% charged before turning it on.If the battery is completely depleted, the power will not turn on immediately even if the charger is connected.
Let it charge for a few minutes, and let it reach 1%, before turning it on.
Is the phone overheating while charging?

This is completely normal. If the temperature reaches beyond or below a certain level, charging may be shut off to protect the device.
