dear Fairphone Friends,
I am using an external universal battery charger to charge empty spare FP2 battery. This was working perfectly until recently the charger stopped working. Normally a purple light on the charger indicates when a battery is installed and as soon as connected to a powersource the light turns to blue indicating it is charging. And when fully charged it turns back purple again.
But now, it does no longer indicate purple when inserting a battery. And also it does not charge at all. It does show the blue light, but it clearly does not charge. It does not matter which battery I install. Both batteries work perfectly in the FP2 and do charge with the normal FP2 charger.
What could this be? Does anybody have experience with charging smartphone batteries and came across this problem? The internet does not reveal much about this either.!
- if the charger is broken, what would be broken and would it be repairable?
- are there any known recommendable external chargers for FP2 batteries?
