Moto x 2nd gen phone charging slow, and not fully charging


#1

WiFi and Cell Talk and Text and 4G Data (Moto X) (2nd Gen.)

Recently, phone takes long time to charge, then stops at 48%.

Have tried 4 different charges and 4 different cables, various combinations. The phone connector seems loose, requiring handling with care. With careful handling, the charge symbol appears in the battery icon. I have cleaned out the connector with compressed air.

What next?

given the age of the phone. and the “seems loose” IMO repair or replace…
but you could try a new cable and I do mean new, but the odds of 4 cables all bad at the same time, low %… know anyone who has a cable you could try… on the new side…
if so and it is still loose then I stand on my repair or replace…

Phone repair or a new phone would be my next step. I would lean heavily toward the new phone.

The connector might explain intermittent. What explains slow charging?

Hi @relder,

The battery lifetime for that phone is about at its end. You can try re-calibrating the battery with these steps:
