First, Reconnect the charger and data cable and try again. If you insert the cable into the phone too slowly or have not connected them properly, fast charging may not work.

Second, It is recommended that you use a standard Huawei charger and data cable. The charger and data cable will be detected during charging. Fast charging or super-fast charging can be enabled only with the following conditions:

  • Both the phone and charger support fast charging/super-fast charging, and the charging modes are the same.
  • If both your phone and charger support 9 V/2 A Huawei fast charging, the phone can be charged at 9 V/2 A.
  • The type and impedance of the data cable meet the requirements of fast charging. For example, 5 V/4.5 A Huawei SuperCharge requires a data cable supporting a current of 5 A or above (non-standard data cable may not be identified), and the impedance of the data cable should meet the SuperCharge requirements.
  • Check the connection of the phone, data cable, charger, and socket. If the port has dirt or smudges on it, clean the port in a timely manner. (You can use a clean soft brush or use an alcohol liquid cleaner if possible.)
  • If the cable is not completely inserted, remove and insert the cable again.

If you continue to face such charging issues, then it’s recommended for you to backup your smartphone’s data and bring it to the Huawei certified Service center for further assistance.
