    I have a Vofafone Smart Prime 6. Today it was at 23%, so I plugged it in, the light was on, but the battery kept draining. It was at 3% so I turned it off and left it in, with the light still on and the screen saying it was charging, but when I turned it on it was at 2%. How do I fix this?

    Make sure first that the USB lead is good, and that the USB port is clean and undamaged.

    I've had problems with my HTC One M9 charging with specific cables. It seems to be positional. There is advice out there on how to clean a USB port, and after viewing a lot of it, and playing around myself, here is my recommended procedure.

    1. Mechanically clean out lint, chocolate, and the like. Some suggest a paper clip or needle but that could short out the contacts and brick your phone, I recommend against it. Some suggest a Qtip but it won't fit. Some suggest a toothpick, which won't short out the contacts but might break off in there. I recommend getting some flossers at the drugstore. The Glide brand is clearly superior for flossing your teeth, but any brand that has a plastic toothpick on the back end will work for this. The toothpick is soft, nonconductive, and flexible, and will not break off in there.

    2. Blow out the port using a can of compressed air.

    3. Clean the contacts, by spraying a tiny amount of DeOxit in there, and then using a fine-bristle toothbrush.

    If anyone has better recommendations, please post them on this thread; thanks!
