Are having difficulty with Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus charging being paused? Most smartphone users would expect to experience charging problems when the battery temperature is too high. But if you’re using a Samsung Galaxy S9 or even a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, you’re just as likely to encounter the opposite issue: charging paused due to the battery temperature being too low on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
In case you didn’t know, Li-Ion batteries, like the ones that all Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices are using, can manifest problems when the temperature goes below… 4°C. Unless you’re trying to recharge your phone out in the snow, this cannot possibly be a problem.
Yet there you are, staring at the display of your smartphone, where you have this inexplicable message “Charging paused: Battery temperature too low” on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. What’s really going on and what can you do about it?
From where we stand, the battery temperature is measured by a thermistor located on your smartphone’s charging board. The reason why you’re seeing this message and the charging process is interrupted must be a malfunction of that thermistor. Therefore, you can either claim your warranty, if it’s still active, and let the Samsung technicians take care of it or…
You can also try to replace the USB charging board yourself. Of course, you’ll have to order a new board, open up the device, take out the old board and connect the new USB charging board. You could also ask a technician to do that for you, even if you no longer have a warranty, in case you’re not feeling comfortable doing it yourself.
A compromise solution can be the decision of charging the Samsung Galaxy S9 while being completely turned off. Some users reported that the “Charging paused: Battery temperature too low” on Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy S9 error is no longer a problem when the phone is powered off. Now, you may not always have this option of completely shutting off the phone or maybe you don’t want to be forced to do so.
Whatever the case, you clearly cannot afford to let this problem manifest because what’s a smartphone that you cannot charge as fast as you need, right when you need it, without having to come up with any gimmicks? Do whatever it takes to solve the battery temperature too low problem and make your Samsung Galaxy S9 charging process fully functional again.
