Slow charging s7 edge

New Member


I have a Samsung galaxy s7 edge for almost 2 years, but in the past 6-8 months I experienced an issue with my battery. When I plug in my charging cable, my phone says: advance charging, but my phone only draws 1 amp of current. I expected like 2 amps minimum. 

I use the original Samsung wall charger and a good quality cable. 

Do you guys have any idea why this happens?


Kind regards,

Hi @Davidhova


If this was my phone I'd try....


  1. Check the charging port for lint and debris.
  2. Try another official Samsung charging brick and cable.
  3. Soft reboot by turning the phone Off and On.
  4. Ask a Samsung Service Centre to run a diagnostic test on the phone and charging kit. 

Also try a fast charge wireless pad to see if that works and if so that could point to the charging port at issue.


I wish you all the best with this situation. 



My advice comes from being a UK Samsung Phone User.
