T31 console USB port won't charge phone.


Has anyone else had this issue? The USB port in my T31 console box supplies a charge rate too low to charge my phone. It lights up the phone, and everything appears normal, but the battery level of the phone continues to slowly fall. No problem with the cigarette lighter socket; I use a charger plugged in there which works well. I have installed a charge rate checking app on my phone, and it does tell me that the charge rate is definitely too low. The same port works OK to play music from a USB stick. Any clues?

Simple ... if the USB port plays music from a stick then it is a data port connected to the audio system and not mean for charging. These types of ports are usually only rated to 500mA as specified by the USB standard.

OOh..sounds so logical now, thanks. Technically speaking though, could the same port have been used for charging if it had a higher rating

Err...no. Because that port wires directly back to the head unit, meaning that its voltage output is determined by the circuitry of the head unit, and as Kev rightly mentioned, the port is meant to be an INPUT to the head unit, not an output for charging.

Re: T31 console USB port won't charge phone.


Small technical clarification. The voltage output for USB is always 5V.... The amp output is generally what varies.

Older phones use to be ok with a 500mA power input (5V * 500mA = 2.5W) but that has been increasing over the years so now newer phones more power to charge.

One option is to try a thicker gauge USB cable to cut down on the electrical resistance. I've had great results on just changing the cable.
