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.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). If my Boards or PCB Kits are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them and there is demand for them. You can join the mailing list on my Website to be notified when they are available.

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