Re: my iphone doesnt charge

Hi there!

There have been some reports of iPhone chargers going bad prematurely.  The test:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer via the USB cable.  Does it make a little beeping noise when you connect it, and then charge up?  If so, the issue is not with your iPhone or USB cable.
  2. Next, using that same USB cable, connect it to your iPhone charger.  Do you get the same connection noise and then does it charge up?  If not, the issue is probably with the charger.
Assuming you have a faulty charger, you are still well within your 1 year warranty from Apple.  Visit an Apple store ( Genius Bar (make your reservation online before you go, to avoid waiting around), explain the issue and how you tested it out, and they will almost certainly replace the charger for you at no cost.

Good luck!

Message on my iPhone shows icon for iTunes to plug in a charger. What do I do?

Charge the phone at least overnite. Sometimes a replacement phone may arrive with a totally dead battery and the charger may not be able to put out enough current to operate the phone and charge it at the same time. If you want it to charge faster use a plug in charger with an output rating of 2 amps. They usually have 2 USB outputs and can charge two devices at the same time. If you only charge one device it's a piece of cake for the charger. .

Not sure. But dod you check if the charger and the cable are correct? When you insert the charger cable the phone should give a beep, turn on for a few moments and than goes in sleeping mode. If nothing happens, please try another cable and / or an different charger.

This product is made by Karuna Borneo. It is a power charger, model KBM300. It charges my iPhone when low. It is a Li-Polymer battery, 3.7 volts/3000 mAh. The video shows it plugged in to the wall

did you use it before you charged it the first time ?? If so it may never take a full charge because ive been told they are set at what ever the first charge is set at and they dont come fully charged.

Iphone 3g proper charging

Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.

Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active, which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan. The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A

I bought a portable charger for my iphone 3gs, my battery was getting low so i put this charger in and now my phone wont switch on?

The charger may not be compatible with your iPhone and the battery on your phone may be completely discharged.

Use an OEM (Apple iPhone) charger and see if it charges your phone. Do not unplug it until it is completely charged (several hours).

My Iphone went dead, and i was charging it through the PC....but it didnt I reset it (home + on/off) but it just went blank and the low battery sign came on again! a

Try an a/c charger, many times the usb ports don;t put out enough to give it a good charge.
If it's a 3G you have to have a charger that works on it.

Try using another cable or charger. A damaged charger or cable could cause it not to charge. 
Otherwise, contact apple or apple store for repair.
