    Not really new but not charging

    This time it"s the Moto G Plus. It had been doing fine but when I plugged it up, it didn't. I've tried the usual, checking the connections and using different cords. I shut it off for now.

    How can I stop my phone charging at the recommended 80%?

    If, as recommended in several videos I've watched, it's helpful for battery longevity to avoid full charging (and leaving on charge when full) how can I best do that? I have a Galaxy A13 and as far as I'm aware there's no way to make it stop charging automatically. My next step was apps that...

    Help Would like to what could possibly be wrong based on my phone behavior described within

    Of late, when my MOTOROLA G5S+ phone drops to around 80% (from a full charge) an outward call or video viewing will cause it to trip and reboot without notice. When I turn the phone back on the charge has dropped straightway to 69 %. This will happen again at circa 40% and the charge dead drops...

    Battery Life Question

    Well I've finally after 2 years had my first faulty battery. Had no clue why my Otter Box wouldn't fit for over a month. I just assumed I tore the clue part when I removed the Otter Box a month back. Anyways finally decided to Google and found out it was most likely caused by a bad swollen...
