  • Check the USB cable you are using for charging

One of the first attempts you make into finding the source of the problem should be to see if the problem is caused by the USB Cable. USB Cable should be kept clean and should not be bent or broken anywhere. Try to test that cable on any other device, if the other device also charges slowly, then you know the problem is with your USB cable and it needs to be changed.

  • Perform a master reset

The perfect solution to slow charging issue is to get rid of the cached data. You can easily do that by performing the master reset. Before performing the reset, you will need to save all the important data of your device. For performing a master reset, follow these steps.

One of the quickest fixes to the issue of slow battery charging is to close all background apps. The apps that are open in the background often slow down the charging rate of the device. It is suggested that you close them so that the RAM of your device is not used to support the apps in the background.

  1. You can easily bring up all the background apps by clicking and holding the home button before releasing it after you see the recently used apps
  2. Click on the ‘end all applications’ option in the task manager
  3. Click on ‘RAM’ option at the top of the screen
  • Uninstall any third-party apps

Removing the third-party apps will help your device function faster and charge normally. Third-party apps often lead to the charging rate getting slowed down. If you have installed any third-party apps recently, then it is suggested that you start uninstalling them starting with the most recent ones. Once the apps that were disrupting the pace of charging are removed, the battery will charge at normal speed. To uninstall apps –

  1. Go to the Menu and select settings
  2. Tap on More and then click on Android Manager
