What to Do When Your Samsung Phone Won't Charge?

As the school year begins, many students are having a difficult time staying focused with distance learning - and you’re probably already mentally exhausted. Chances are, your Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet will be to. Even if you’ve invested in a Samsung Galaxy S7 Tablet with up to 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM or use DEX Mode a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 20, that memory space fills up quickly with Zoom Meetings, study guides, and PowerPoint slides.

When you’re not running out of storage or you’re dealing with a slowed down processor, maybe even apps that keep quitting on you. And now, with everything else going wrong, your Samsung tablet or smartphone refuses to charge. Full-time student with 5% battery? Not happening. So what do you do when you’ve already poured your life savings into textbooks and getting the smartphone or tablet in the first place? What are your most inexpensive options?

Defective or Swollen Samsung Battery 

As the battery ages, the chemical reaction that was once at it's full capacity slowly begins to depreciate. As a result, the lack of chemical reaction can cause the battery to slowly lose battery health and eventually stop working. In some instances this chemical reaction can be released resulting to a swollen Samsung battery.
