On more than one occasion, it has happened to us that our charger suddenly stops working, and we do not know what to do. Because of this, you have surely wondered how to repair or fix the charger of a cell phone or mobile? Here we will give you some steps, so that you can give first aid to your charger.
As mobile technology advances, so does your power supply. With the release of more and better cell phone models, the need was born to create new and better chargers, which shorten the charging time, making it much easier to use our cell phone.
First method to repair a mobile charger
If your charger has suddenly stopped working, it is likely that the one that is damaged is actually the cable of your device, so you must first check if it has any visible damage.

If this is the case and your charger has a damaged part of the cable, you can first check if it still charges your cell phone, or if it is dead at all. In case it is still carrying it, you can restore stability using a little tape or tape, preferably black better. Nevertheless, you can use any.
Try not putting too much pressure on the cable and give it a few turns with the tape, thus restoring its firmness. This can be a half solution, as it is something we can do if we do not have welding experience or do not have the tools.
Although it is rare, it may be the case that the damaged one is the USB port and not the charger itself. To rule this out, we must remember that electricity can be drawn from any USB port. And what better than to use those of our PC or laptop. You just have to connect your cell phone to the USB port of the computer and check if it charges or not.
Second method to repair a cell phone charger
Another slightly more complex form of fix our charger, It is repairing the affected sector directly. In this case we will need to have a soldering iron and some tin, also if you want you can use gloves as a safety measure.
In the first instance you must locate the affected area, and make a cut, then you will have to peel the two ends respectively. You will find 2 pairs of wires, and you will have to expose the copper of all the wires respectively. In case you don’t have a soldering iron, you can always splice the cables with your fingers.
In that case you should be careful because they are fragile cables. If you are going to solder them, you will have to use a little tin on each wire and join each wire with its equal on the other end. You must respect the colors and match only those that have the same color. In case your charger is fast charging, it is the same procedure and in the same way you will find 2 pairs of cables.
It may be the case that you find a mesh that wraps the two pairs of cables. In these cables you can cut it directly, since it is difficult to splice, but if you are welding you can also join it to the other part of the mesh. Once this is done you will have to isolate each of the joints with small cutouts of tape.
Factors to take into account when charging your mobile device
An important factor is the time it remains connected to the current, because many times the cell phone is fully charged and even so we leave it loading. This usually happens a lot when we charge our cell phone at night. For this reason, it is important to disconnect our charger from the current when we stop using it.
Although it is inevitable that our devices will be damaged at some point, we can always extend their useful life. In the case of mobile chargers, care must be taken when connect them in public areas, since they can be affected by high tensions.
Something that greatly reduces the duration of chargers is to bend the cable when using it, this greatly weakens its internal parts and causes it to break and stop working. For this reason, it is always better to leave our phone charging on a surface and not move it too much.
