For me I had to charge the battery with one of these (https://pine64.com/product/pinephone-battery-charger/) but... It took me forever to realize that I had to plug the cable into a wall adapter that would supply enough voltage. There's an adapter I received from Pine64 and I used that, plugging in the wall adapter --> to the cable --> to the external charger. But this is not the right way, because the wall adapter having multiple ports, splits the charge. It has to be 1 single-port wall charger (or female USB port) --> cable --> external battery charger.

The other thing I had to realize is that the light has to at least turn red (green is full charge), to indicate a charge. If the light is off, it is not charging! The solution is to get enough volts to charge it, because it won't take a 2 or 3 volt! I'm telling ya'll so you don't worry.

For the time being, my phone being a Braveheart, it's the only way I know to bring it back on from a complete discharge. I might figure out another way. TLDR the phone is not dead. Blush

Undervoltage is dangerous, the charger needs to have 5 V. But I think you mean the amperage here, the amperage is variable and you should charge it with more than 0.5 A. Your Braveheart Edition is draining the battery while the phone is turned off due to a hardware bug (https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/PinePhone_1...rdware_Fix), later revisions are not affected. If it gets fully drained again you can put Jumpdrive on a microSD card, boot that and let it charge there.

GOT IT WORKING AGAIN!
I finally got the package I order to charge the battery and the phone is back up and working again. Thanks for the help everyone! Big Grin
