Each Apple laptop adaptor will comes in two parts, the first one will be a square adaptor and the second one will be a removable plug (or lead) that will have full capability to connect to the wall. Pull up both the parts and then put them back together.
    ·Perform a check whether you have plugged into a wall socket or not? Is the socket accurately turned on? Have you ever given a try to a different wall socket?
    ·What does the Apple adaptor actually appears to be? Perform a check for whether it in pristine condition or has it got any tears in the cable?
    ·Check carefully for the MagSafe connection on the Apple laptop for any dust. By doing this will surely prevent the MagSafe connector from making a clean connection to the Mac device and will stop users from charging it up accurately.

    Step2; Check for all the settings

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

i have a macbook whose battery suddenly stopped working. the icon shows "X"; when I check the battery status, it shows "battery not installed". I have to have it plugged-in in order to work. until this happend I had been callibrating the battery regularly - this happened after the last callibration. what is wrong?

Most likely your battery failed during the calibration. Calibrating the battery is not something that you really need to do very often -- if at all. Most likely the deep power cycles you were doing with the calibration damaged the battery.
You'll have to to take the Macbook in to replace the battery -- depending on the model, they will just give you a replacement battery to purchase or you will have to have them replace the battery.
When you get your Macbook back, don't worry about calibrating the battery and just charge as usual.

My phone won't charge and is about to die. When I put it on the charge is says "Unable to charge. Non supported battery." I've tried using the air in a can stuff on the ports but that didn't fix it. What do I do??

You may have a hardware problem. It's very common for the charging port in a cell phone to become damaged somehow, which can cause this error. Other possibilities is a damaged battery or damaged power cord. Your best bet is to bring the phone to your carrier's nearest store and have them check it out for you. If it's the battery or the cord, a simple replacement is cheap and quick, but if there's a problem with the phone itself, you'll need to get a new one.

My computer won't charge! The problem is that where i plug in the charging adapter that "little hole" is loose and won't keep the adapter in, ultimately not letting it charge

This is really a physical damage to the slot for the plug.
There are some tweaks that you might try to keep it there, like pushing it and holding it with something, or use scotch tape or something similar, but ultimately it might affect the life of your battery.
There's really nothing substantial you can do other than changing the power adapter.
