Sorry to say, but it's not possible to check that without looking on screen. The idea from tjt263 is a good one, but since USB type C is fairly new, there isn't an adapter available for USB-C. I suggest to wait 'till new cables with a charging indicator included are released.

I have the same issue. My solution is to unplug the usb-c and plug it again and it shows the battery status on the display.

My experience has been that some (most?) non-MFi chargers/cables are unable to bring an iPhone out of a completely discharged state. In the past, I’ve had to use an MFi-certified Apple charger/cable first; only after the iPhone came back to life did the unofficial charger work.

This should be absolutely fine. I haven't tried it myself (yet) but Apple themselves state that you can use the 29W adaptor with the 12.9" iPad Pro, and other people have verified that it works (and doesn't cause damage). This all came out before the 9.7" iPad Pro was released, and it doesn't look like Apple have updated the product page for their USB-C to ...

Can a Macbook charge it's batteries from a USB-A charger (car or wall) or battery pack? It depends, but yes, it should work. The charging performance may vary from it charges very slowly to not at all. "Type A" is the connector type; it has nothing to do with how much power is being delivered. What you need is a power adapter that is compliant to USB 3.1 ...

I believe you might be able to do this.. My only evidence for that statement is from this USB-A to USB-C cable on Amazon and the associated product reviews. Dozens of users state that they use it, albeit very slowly, to charge their MacBooks. However, one user, who has the very first review and is rated as 'most helpful' provides technical details as to ...

It's probable that your adaptor is wet. The Gold-coated pins actually move toward the inside of the tip of the cable where that green led is. If you can find a way to blow inside that tip while pressing on the pins, tucking them in, you can by one chance dry it and get it working again.

I just filed down my new Apple MagSafe power cord on each end and it totally works with my 2012 15" MacBook Pro.. Just found out the edges and I did a few passes over the top were the pins are and pow! It totally works

I found it easiest to make this flowchart myself:

You have to do some basic trouble shooting. You have two components to check: The 12v power port in your car The charger Plug your charger into the power port of a different car with a power port you know to be good. If your charger works, then the problem is related to your car. If it dosen't work, then your charger is at fault. Alternatively, you ...

I finally fixed it today. It turns out the Magsafe DC-in board can be replaced. It's a little $25 part ($15 refurbished). I followed the instructions on iFixit.com; you have to take apart practically the whole laptop which includes a lot of tiny, tiny connectors, but it's doable with just a few screwdrivers and a spudger I made from a chopstick. The ...
