Iphone charging problems
One of the most common issue across many apple devices, from iphone 5s up to the 7 and ipad mini through to the ipad 6 2018 which is the dreaded not charging, fake charging or rapid battery drain issues.
These are all commonly caused by a faulty/damaged Tristar charging IC and in some models the Tigris USB IC. This IC in simple, regulates the voltage that is put into charging your battery. When this malfunctions it can cause many different issues, such as not charging at all, not charging a flat battery, not powering on at all, rapid battery drain and only charging when turned on/off to name a few.
This damage is most commonly caused by cheap cables being used and charging your phone in the car. Apples own cables can break pretty easily so people often go and find the cheapest possible replacement, which is never a good idea, cheap cables do not have a regulated output meaning the voltage into these IC’s is too high and damages them.
We repair charging problems on many devices on a daily basis, we are able to test if it is the IC itself causing the fault or something else on one of the main charging lines.
When this fault appears, most repairers will tell you that this cannot be repaired or that it will take several days to a week.. This is because they lack the knowledge and are unable to test these components and replace them themselves. We specialise in board level repairs and know the tristar circuit like the back of our hands.
