MintyPi V3 Won't Charge

Post by Indian Hobo » Fri Jun 14, 2019 7:59 pm

As it says in the title my newly built MintyPi v3 won't charge. The battery indicator light does not light up, and a portable charger will not turn on when plugged into the Pi. I know for sure it isn't charging, as the "Low battery, shutting down" message will still appear when it's plugged in to a wall outlet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using some dedicated USB-C charger like one from the Switch or a newer phone? if you are which I'm sure you are then you need to use a 5v only charger and not a usb-c charger that can do higher voltages.

You were exactly right (I was using a switch charger). Thanks for the help!
