Not accepting charge, looking for alternatives to charge the battery.
My Xiaomi A2 is not accepting a charge. I got a battery diagnostics app and it never goes to -mA.
There have been discussions about this being a software issues, but I think in my case it could be a hardware issue as I used a macbook charger to charge my phone a few times. I remember the phone getting really hot whenever I did this.
I tried replacing the charge board with no luck.
As a desparate attempt to get some useful life out of this phone, I wanted to see if I could find an external battery charge so I could charge the battery by taking it out of the phone. This is what the connector looks like.
Is it possible to get some sort of device to charge these batteries?
