Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
What I have done to solve this annoying charging problem is to notice over time the USB charging connector does not fully insert into the USB charging port. The root cause of this is dust and lint mostly from where you carry the phone gets packed into the port by plugging it in hundreds of times night after night. Eventually you have a bad/marginal connection.
I solved this by carefully picking out the lint fuzz with the smallest jeweler's screw driver available (a small gage copper wire or dental pick would also work fine). You will amazed by the amount of fuzz that is removed. Keep picking and blowing out the fuzz till you can no longer see any accumulation in the bottom of the port. Use good lighting and an eye loupe or magnifying lens to see into this small space. When your done the connector will be able to insert fully into the port like it did when the phone was new.
I hope this helps you. It is a simple and inexpensive fix.
