It has happened to all of us: you plug in your phone to charge and it just… won’t. You tell yourself it’s probably the outlet, and you try plugging it in at different spots, even into your computer. But when you try to charge your phone everywhere you can think of and it still won’t come back to life, you may need to get your lightning connector itself replaced.
Why Should I Get My Lightning Connector Replaced?
If your phone won’t charge anywhere––no matter what outlet or computer you plug it into––it’s likely your charger’s lightning connector that is the culprit. This is the 8-pin connector that is on the smaller side of your charger cable, the one you plug into your phone. This little device is sturdy but can break down just like any other important connector, and there’s a real possibility you’ll need a replacement if your phone won’t charge.
Having your lightning connector replaced is much easier and cheaper than having the charging port in your phone replaced, which is why we suggest looking into this option before you consider if it might be your phone itself. Many times, the lightning connector is the issue and it doesn’t take much effort at all to fix the problem: the connector––or the entire charging cord itself––just needs to be replaced instead of something more expensive like your phone’s charging port.
We Can Replace Your Lightning Connector
We have plenty of lightning cables in stock that you can purchase for a minimal price in order to get your phone charging again. When you bring us an issue, the diagnostic itself is free, so we can determine if your only problem is needing a new lightning cable and then sell you another one for a nominal fee. Trust us, it’s best to find out if your only issue is the cable itself rather than attempting to monkey around with your phone and, potentially, make problems a whole lot worse.
Having Problems With Your Phone?
Don’t try to fix it at home via an unreliable life hack: let our team of professionals take a look at your device and determine the issue. Then you can decide if you’d like us to draw up a payment plan and begin fixing your phone or just sell you a new connector. Call today to learn more about your options.

There are plenty of ways to help improve the battery life of your iPad, but in some cases, it’s better to just bite the bullet and get your battery replaced.
Lower Your Screen’s Brightness Setting
One of the quickest battery drains is an unnecessarily bright screen. Especially if you are indoors, you can lower your brightness to less than half and still be able to see your screen just fine. You can do this by swiping open the Control Center and using the brightness slider or by entering Settings and then Display & Brightness
Close Unnecessary Battery Wasters
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirDrop are all taking up battery life when they are left on. If you do not need these programs at the moment then you can turn them off in your Settings menu or in your Control Center. Handoff is another battery waster you can turn off if you’re unlikely to want to switch tasks between your iPhone and your iPad.
In addition, leaving apps open when you’re not using them can also drain your battery. It’s a good idea to close any apps you’re finished with—even if you think you’ll use them later—if you’re trying to save some battery life for when later comes.
Turn Off Location Services, Push Notifications, and Background App Refresh
All of these (often unnecessary) services that your apps will be more than happy to perform are huge battery wasters, especially because they are usually going on when you don’t need them to be. You don’t really need push notifications for most apps, and having one of your fast food apps knowing where you are all the time is kinda creepy. You can turn off location services, push notifications, and background app refresh for certain apps as you see fit, or if you prefer, turn them all off entirely.
Keep Your iPad Cool
Allowing your device to get overheated can also drain the battery, so it’s important to make sure you keep your iPad nice and cool. It’s usually best to maintain a temperature of below 72 degrees if you can (and no higher than 95 degrees), so if you take your device to the beach, keep it out of the sun.
What If These Tips Don’t Work?
It may be time to get a new battery for your device if you’re spending all your time trying to save your battery life. Call today for a free diagnostic.

So you dropped your phone, and now the screen is cracked. You may be thinking to yourself that you could save a lot of money by replacing the screen at home. After all, it would be much cheaper than buying a new phone right?
Though you may be a totally capable fixer when it comes to household projects or cars, it’s important to always see a professional when it comes to fixing a cracked phone screen.
Why Do I Need a Professional to Replace My Screen?
Trust us. We know there are about a thousand YouTube videos out there telling you it’s easy to replace a cracked phone screen and that you can DIY the whole thing, saving you money and time. But the truth is, this type of easy-fix isn’t the safest option.
- If you try to replace your phone screen yourself, you could potentially fry the phone, crack the screen even more, or make a hundred other mistakes that could damage your device more than it already was.
- Working on a broken phone is meticulous and requires a steady hand. Usually people who don’t have any experience with this kind of work make mistakes.
- Life hacks are great and all, but using tools you have around the house to fix your phone just won’t cut it. Most people don’t have the necessary tools to replace a phone screen anyway, and buying them is just an unnecessary expense. Plus, unless you break your phone screen constantly, would you really want to buy something you won’t need more than once?
- What’s more, repair kits you can buy to fix your phone at home are often more expensive than taking it to a professional. And at least with the latter, you know it’ll be done right.
You may be thinking the easier option would be to just fix your phone at home, but in truth, it is actually cheaper, faster, and safer to have a professional fix your cracked screen for you. There’s no research required on your end and you can feel satisfied knowing your smartphone is in good hands.
Got a Cracked Screen?
If your cell phone screen is cracked, let us fix it for you. Your initial diagnostic is free, and we will get your phone back into your hands as soon as possible and as good as new. Call today.
