Always in 'Charging' state, despite being disconnected from external power
#1
Already ran the updater.

Battery is always in the 'Charging' state despite not being connected to external power.

Persists across power cycles.

Sounds like a hardware issue, does it actually charge?
You should open a support ticket just in case you need some replacement PCB.
Come have a chat in the Pine A64 IRC channel >>

Yes. It charges normally but disconnecting does not change the state.

How would I go about opening a ticket?

I also have this problem on any operating system. On chromium it can't even obtain batrtery status. I guess it goes along with the emmc not being recognized either. even after obtaining a new module (yes switches are set correctly, no it wasn't hotplugged) Hopefully support will get back to me on this

When connecting to a powered USB-C dock, the battery state changes to 'Discharging'.

Not connected to USB-C dock nor 5V via barrel jack: 'Charging', actual state is 'Discharging'
Connected to USB-C dock: 'Discharging', actual state is ???
Connected to 5V via barrel jack: 'Charging', actual state is 'Charging'

I made the same observations with my PBP. I charge it mostly via the barrel plug. It works just fine, but the status is wrong. The values presented in Power Statistics Details don't seem to be plausible, as well.
