How To Fix Skullcandy Sesh Evo 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 case is not charging-

1. Use the original cable

Charging Cable Type C

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 case of the earbuds.

Although it’s a standard cable still, it’s precisely designed for that particular brand.

If your Skullcandy Sesh Evo case is not charging, use the original cable to charge your case.

2. Clean the charging port

Charging Case Cleaning

The second biggest reason is you’re not cleaning your charging port frequently, due to which your Skullcandy case is not charging.

Due to frequent 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. Try a new adapter

Power Adapter

It’s rare, 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 Sesh 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 earbuds’ charging point, which doesn’t charge.

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

So, 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
