How To Fix Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Not Fast Charging

Problem: Having fast charging issues with the Pocophone F1.  The phone is several days old. It has been charging fine for all that time.  Recently, it stopped fast charging. If I use a simple adaptor, I can “slow” charge it consistently.  Bought a new fast charger, and it doesn’t work, either. Slow charging continues to work consistently.  I’ve tried resetting, blowing out the connector, etc. I can get the original fast charger to work once in a while, but not consistently.  Since the new cable and fast charger don’t work consistently and the slow charging does work all the time, it doesn’t appear to be a cable or fast charger issue.

Solution: The Pocophone F1 supports the Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 technology however it ships with an 18W QuickCharge 3.0-compatible charger. This allows the battery to fully charge in half an hour from a 35% battery life.

If your phone is not fast charging then the troubleshooting steps listed below must be performed.

  • Sometimes dirt or debris stuck in the charging port of the phone can affect the way it charges. Clean the port using a can of compressed air to remove any foreign matter trapped in it.
  • Try using a different charging cord to charge the phone. This allows you to check if the cord you are using is what’s causing the problem as this gets easily broken.
  • Try using a wall charger with Quick Charge 4.0 technology to charge the phone.
  • To check if the problem is caused by a software glitch you need to backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete do not install any apps in your phone yet. Try to check first if the issue still occurs.

If the above steps fails to fix the problem then you will have to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
