How Do I Know If My Battery Charger Is Working-Care and Causes

How Do I Know If My Battery Charger Is Working-Care and Causes

Page view

Chargers play an important in all rechargeable devices. They help us to power up these gadgets so that we can enjoy using them remotely. But they can become faulty just like any other electronic device. For non-techies, it can be so hard to know where the problem is arising from.

In this article, we are going to discuss how you can use your battery charger, what to do if it doesn't work, and what makes them not work. Stay tuned until the end of this article so that you can gain this crucial info.

How do I use my battery charger?

Whether it’s a car, laptop or smartphone charger, safety must be observed first

Proper Connection

One of the most important things that you should observe while dealing with battery chargers is the connection. Make sure that the terminals of the battery are connected properly. If it’s a mobile phone, plug in the tip inside the charging port. Do not force the charger very hard as it will spoil the terminals. Once they are spoilt you might need to replace them since they are hardly repaired.

Compatible Devices

Battery chargers are made for use with specific models only. So it is important to check whether these two devices are compatible. Otherwise, you will be risking as the wrong compatibility can cause accidents such as explosions. If you are not sure about the compatibility, open the manual and read the capacity and voltage. This will give you a clue about whether they are compatible or not.

Switch Off The Device

If you want your battery to charge fast enough, then you should switch off your device. However, this is not necessary but it is highly recommended. Alternatively, you can reduce the background processes so that the battery can charge fast.

Plug In A Safe Socket

If the socket is wet or overloaded, then this might spoil your charger, battery, or both. Battery chargers usually require a higher voltage as compared to other devices. So if you overload a circuit then you might cause an accident.

What do I need to do if my battery charger doesn't work?

Diagnosis

The first thing you need to do when a battery charger doesn’t work is to carry out a diagnosis. This will help you find out where the problem lies. Start by checking whether your LED indicator is lit or not. If the indicator is on then your charger is okay and the problem might be on the battery or the device that you are charging.

Clean The Terminal Plates

Use alcohol to scrub the rust from the battery, laptop, or phone terminals. If these terminals contain rust then your battery charger will not charge. Now dry the terminals and insert the battery to its original position.

Take It To The Expert

Some battery chargers are so expensive and sophisticated. This is why you need to take it to an expert. They will fix almost any issue that you are experiencing but at a certain amount of fee. Mostly the Voltage AC is the one that needs replacement. Since chargers used different ACs the expert is at a higher position of getting the exact match for you. Otherwise, if you get the wrong model then you might spoil your gadgets.

Buy Another One

If the repair cost surpasses the buying cost then it's wise to buy another one. Some chargers lack spare components hence buying another one makes more sense. If it’s a phone charger then you can buy spate components depending on which is not working.

Some big chargers such as the car charger or laptop charger come with a warranty. So you can return them to the dealer for replacement.

Change The USB, Head Or Adapter

It is very easy to deal with some chargers that are divided into two parts. This is because it’s not easy for both parts to spoil at once. So you can buy another USB and still retain the head to cut costs. Conversely, you can buy the head alone if you are certain that the USB is okay.

If you are dealing with a laptop charger, then you can buy the two components separately depending on which is bad. Car battery chargers contain different parts that you can buy separately such as the cords.

What makes my battery charger not working?

Short Circuit

Some chargers will stop working after short-circuiting. This is because the might damage the voltage IC or another important component. So short-circuiting in the socket, device port or battery terminals is very dangerous. You should avoid such sockets is you want your charger to serve you for a long time.

Bad Connection

Bad connections too might cause your charger not to work. Make sure that your source has enough voltage for the charger to work. Also if it has two components, they all need to be connected properly. Most adopters feature an LED indicator that shows you when the charger is connected to a power supply.

Dead Battery/Device

If the battery is dead then that means the charger won't work either. For example, if you are connecting a charger to a dead smartphone or battery. Besides, if the device is dead, then it will not indicate whether it’s charging. So the charger might be okay but the battery is dead.

Low Voltage

Another issue that might cause it not to work is low voltage. This can be solved by fixing the power source.

Conclusion

A charger is one thing that our gadgets cannot function without. Whether it a car battery charger, a phone, or a laptop, they can stop working due to various reasons. For example, short-circuiting can damage the voltage IC. Once a small part is damaged such as this one then the whole charger is affected. Do not use one that is faulty because it can damage your device or cause an accident such as an explosion. Take it to an expert for repairs or buy another one if it's too costly.
