Why is my Skullcandy Indy Evo Case Not Charging?

The most common reason is that your charging cable is damaged or your power adapter is not compatible.

Apart from that, it’s also possible that dust and debris are blocking the optimum charging functionalities.

Also, you should use the desired rated voltage/wattage adapter for charging your case. Otherwise, it can be another reason why your Skullcandy case is not charging.

How To Fix Skullcandy Indy Evo Case/Earbud is Not Charging?

There are two possibilities- Either your Skullcandy case is not charging, or Skullcandy earbuds are not charging. In this guide, we shall learn to fix both issues.

Follow these steps to fix the Skullcandy Indy Evo case that is not charging-

1. Use the original cable

A common mistake everyone makes is that they plug in any cable to charge their earbuds case. If you’re also making the same mistake, then stop it now.

Every earphone brand provides a charging cable (mostly type C) in the box to charge the earphone case. Although it’s a standard cable still, it’s precisely designed for that particular brand.

If your Skullcandy Indy Evo is not charging 100%, then change your cable and use the original cable for charging your case.

2. Clean the charging port

The second biggest reason is you’re not cleaning your charging port frequently, due to which your Skullcandy case is not charging. Due to regular uses, dust particles accumulate inside your charging port.

The dust or any foreign particles stops the electricity flow to the battery, due to which your charging case doesn’t charge 100 percent.

It would help if you cleaned your Skullcandy case charging port with isopropyl alcohol and a piece of soft fabric.

After cleaning with alcohol, wait for 3 to 4 minutes to evaporate the alcohol from the charging port.

3. Change the power adapter

It’s rare, though, but sometimes the power adapter doesn’t support the earbuds charging case’s designed voltage and rated amperes.

So, you should try a different power adapter and check if your earbuds case is charging or not.

4. Clean the charging pin

Skullcandy Indy Evo is an IP55 splash and dust-proof, but this rating is for internal protection of earbuds.

Sometimes dust accumulates around the case pin and charging point of earbuds, due to which your earbuds don’t charge.

Due to dust around the case, the lid does not close properly, affecting the charging.

So, in order to fix the issue, thoroughly clean your Skullcandy case with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth.

Also, use a toothbrush to clean the charging point on the earbuds and the unreachable portion of the case.

5. Reset the Skullcandy earbuds

If you checked your charging cable and power adapter carefully and cleaned them properly, but still it’s not charging, then it’s time for a factory reset.

Follow these steps to reset the Skullcandy earbuds-

  1. Go to your smartphone’s Bluetooth settings and unpair the Skullcandy earbuds.
  2. Now forget the device to completely unpair it.
  3. Remove the Skullcandy earbuds from the case.
  4. Tap and hold both earbuds for 6 seconds to turn them off manually.
  5. Put off your hand for 5 seconds from the buds.
  6. Now again, tap and hold both the buds for 10 seconds to reset it completely.
  7. Put them back in the case.
  8. Again remove it from the case and pair it with your smartphone.


The most common reason for not charging any earbuds case is the torn or damaged charging cable. Apart from that, regular cleaning of the case and charging port is necessary for proper functioning.
