Re: Does leaving a cell phone charger plugged in to an...
Yes. You are right. Here energy is not the criteria. It is always safe to unplug the charger (when not in use) to prevent the damage of a cell phone due to accidental over load of electricity or short circuits. Moreover Chargers do draw power when plugged in, whether or not a device is actually being charged.
If the charger is plugged in someplace easy to access, like right by where you keep your phone, you should unplug it. But if it would be difficult to have to plug it in every time you need to use it, you'll be fine just leaving it plugged in..and.It still uses energy even when not charging. Any electronic device plugged in a socket uses energy whether it is in use or not.

Your charge cord may fit, but it may not be configured to your phone. I just bought a new Nexus phone that has the same charge port as my older Galaxy 4s phone. The Nexus charge plug fits into the Galaxy 4s charge port with no problems but does not charge after plugged into outlet. But the older charge cord will work with the new Nexus charging wise but data transfer will not work. So you may have a charge cord that plugs into phone, but may be configured differently due to phone manufacturer. Hope this helps.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 - NO POWER, BATTERY, CHARGING AND CHARGER ISSUES
No power, battery, charging and charger issues
This guide contains troubleshooting steps and advice to help resolve issues you may experience when attempting to charge the handset.
After performing each step, please test to see if the issue is resolved.
Battery not charging
Battery is not lasting long
Phone won't charge
Failure to charge
Display remains black or blank
Are you using the correct equipment?Make sure you are using an approved Samsung wall charger and USB charging cable. Other brands of charging accessories may have different voltage parameters and could cause charging issues when used with Samsung devices.
Have you charged your phone for longer than 30min?
Leave your phone plugged in to the charger for about 30min without powering on. In some cases, it may take slightly longer for your phone to charge.
Is the battery icon displayed on the screen when charging?
After charging your phone for a little while you should get a battery charging icon appear on the screen which will indicate that your battery is charging properly.
If the charging icon appears, leave your phone for a little longer before you try to switch your phone on.
If however, the screen is blank and nothing is displayed, follow the below troubleshooting steps.
Is the charging cable plugged into a USB port?
Some charging cables can disconnect from the wall outlet adapter and plug directly into a USB port. However, when plugged into a USB port, the charging process is much slower due to the limited power output of USB ports. Instead, plug the device directly into a wall outlet to speed up the charging process.
Is the outlet faulty?
Try a different outlet or check for a switch connected to the outlet. If possible, try powering a different device on the same outlet.
Does another USB cable, or wall charger work?
Charging issues can occur if either the battery or charging cable is damaged. Verify that the charging contacts are clean. If necessary, clean the contacts using a cotton swab and rubbing on isopropyl alcohol.
If possible, test the charging cable by plugging it into another device and seeing if the device charges. Alternatively, try charging the device with a different cable. This may mean changing out the cable or the adapter on two-piece chargers.
If charging through a car charging kit, ensure that the car engine is running, and if possible try to charge other devices using other cables, through the same car kit. If none will charge, then it is likely there is a fault with the car charging kit. It is recommended to continue to cross-test devices, cables, and car kits until the problem device can be identified.
If the device charges when using a different USB cable or wall charger, the issue most likely lies with the charging accessory. In this case, follow the approved charger repair / replacement process.
Also, if the charger is connected via an extension or other multi-socket adapter, remove this and plug the charger directly into the wall-mounted socket. This will eliminate the possibility of a fault with the adapter.
If you are still unable to charge your device, continue to the next step.
Has the phone experienced any shock or exposure to water?
Accidental physical shock to a handset can sometimes cause problems to arise with battery or charger, as these components contain delicate parts, particularly. Damage can occur either to the component itself, or to the component's connection to the motherboard.
Water exposure can also lead to damage of these components, however due to the slow way in which this type of damage can manifest itself, the cause may not always be readily obvious.
With any physical damage of this nature, the only recourse is to contact the device manufacturer, and follow their approved repair or replacement process.
If the battery is drained on your iPhone 4, you really need to wait longer before it charges. Make sure you charge it with a wall charger because it charges faster than when plugged in on your computer. Also, if you have an iPad charger, it would be better since it has higher voltage and will give your phone more juice faster.
Just leave it for a while and it will boot in itself once it got the right amount of power. You may also try hard reset by pressing home button and sleep button simultaneously until you see the apple logo.
hi friend, step 1
Make sure you have all of the accessories. Some phones need special adapters for charging. If you're having problems fitting the charger into your cigarette lighter socket, check with your cell phone company. You may need an adapter ring.
Find the right battery. Certain phones can only be used with batteries from the same company. If you are using a counterfeit battery, be aware that you may not be able to charge it with your current set up.
Read the manual. Something as simple as charging a battery may take specific instructions. For example, some cell batteries need to be charged immediately while others come fully charged.
Use your charger. Most cell phone chargers are easy to use plugging right into your phone and home outlet or car electrical cigarette socket. Read your manual on specific steps needed for charging your phone.
Try Cellboosts. These convenient devices are disposable battery packs that plug into your phone, charging it when the charger isn't accessible. Cellboosts usually last for an hour and are not compatible with all cell phones.
Go solar. This innovation allows you to charge your phone wherever there is light. Just attach your cell to a portable adapter and let the light do the rest
hope this helps u
please rate me..........................
thank u for using fixya
you have done well in troubleshooting it. if you have tried another charger on it and its not charging, then you have to replace the charging port. if you are good opening phones, then replacing the charging port will not be a problem. the chrging port is usually not screwed, it is just fixed to the board by contacts. look for the replacement part and change it. other wise, take it to a phone technician with the new charging port and replace it. good luck!
Before you get creative and directly plug your batter into an AC adapter, try something much easier first. I have the same problem with my Olympus 770SW batteries. As silly as it sounds, the charger will only work in a select few outlets in my house that I found by trial an error, actually pure frustration. I suggest, go around your house and plug the blinking charger in all the outlets and see if you find one that works. That sounds a lot less shocking than solution 1 and 2 now doesn't it? Good luck!
In my 30+ years of servicing battery operated devices, I have to tell you that 95% of the time, it's a bad battery.
Question1 : I agree that it should operate on outlet power. Perhaps the battery has a shorted cell and is eating up all of the charger's available current. Chargers have a limited amount of capacity.
Question2: Charge the battery then remove it from the phone. It should be slightly warm to the touch if you touch it within a few minutes of completion. If you have access to a DC Voltmeter, let the battery sit for a couple hours and check the voltage. It should be at least (usually higher) what is written on it. Other than that, replacing it is the only other way.
The reason the phone won't charge is because the internal power port pins are broken off of their solder joints to the main board inside the phone. Wiggling it helps at first because the pins can still touch their connection points but after a short time that will cease to help. Google "cell phone repair". It usually cost around $50 to get it fixed with a new power port installed. Turn-around is usually 2-3 days.
