Hi, Since yesterday my Jolla does not charge anymore. It keeps warning that it needs charging. Tries to restart without success (low pwr). Red blinking led. Tried several different chargers, PC and AC and ways to connect (first Jolla and then AC/PC), fast, slow. It just keeps blinking.

Answering myself... I did put it in the car charger and after a while it seemed to pick up charging again :-) Once heard from a battery specialist that if a battery has been deeply discharged that it can take quite some time to get any life back into it (or even give it a high voltage boost [don't do that via your Jolla!]). In my case it took half an hour.

What I do when this happens to me is pluggin in the charge to the Jolla phone withput battery. The phone will start to vibrate and then I insert the battery.

I would suggest to get an inexpensive 'universal cell phone battery charger' (on eBay they go for ~4 EUR)
They are handy also to for the cases where the phone is somehow not able to recharge the battery. image description

If charging does not work because the usb port is broken, a SolarTOH or a wireless charging TOH will also do the trick. Best is probably to send the phone in for repair.

Contact Jolla Care, and send your phone for repair.
