Portable charger not working
« on: February 16, 2018, 03:25:31 pm »
Today, my portable charger (which is half-way full) has stopped working. Whenever I plug it into my iPhone, it charges for 10 minutes and then a notification box appears on my phone saying "This accessory is not supported." Anyone got any clue as to why this might be happening?

Probably not super helpful, but did the cable get bent or damaged somehow? That happened to my old one when one of the ends got bent and it wouldn't charge normally unless I held it in with force

Ah thanks for the advice! I ended up trying the cable, and it worked alright by itself, but not with the charger?

It could be something to do with the voltage. Maybe the output is not stable and that's what's causing the problem. Do you have anything else you could plug into the charger to test it?

Thanks for the advice! I just checked and plugged the cord along with the (wall thing?) into the wall and it still didn't work.

That's weird. Is your cable official(apple branded)? Also what kind of charger is it more precisely?

Yup! I actually just switched the cable to a Puridea one and it’s working fine! The charger itself is a 2x Dulla.
