How To Get Broken Charger Tip Out Of iPhone?

Everybody uses their phone relatively roughly after a while, but sometimes we get a little too rough. There are certain cases where the charger tip breaks off due to bending or forceful usage. Usually, this would just be a quick replacement, but sometimes, the tip can get stuck. Luckily, this isn’t the end of the line for your phone. This article will guide you on How To Get Broken Charger Tip Out Of iPhone?

Use Super Glue

  1. Super Glue has had a variety of uses, but by applying it to the edge of a screwdriver, we are able to give ourselves a little sticky stick that will allow us to safely pull out the damaged charger. So, get a screwdriver with a head small enough to fit into a charging port and a decent amount of regular or gorilla glue.
  2. Coat the tip of the screwdriver with a small amount of glue and allow it to dry a little.
  3. Insert it into the port and let it make contact with the charger.
  4. After about half a minute, gently pull out the screwdriver causing the tip of the charger to come along with it. 

Note that certain types of glue are more adhesive than others; the same goes for how fast it becomes adhesive. Meaning that this solution can be an easy fix if you are familiar or comfortable with your knowledge of the glue. If done carelessly, the screwdriver can be stuck alongside the charger port, worsening the situation.

Use Tweezers

  1. Much like glue, tweezers have had many uses. Unlike glue, though, this is a much safer alternative. One pair of small tweezers will allow us to safely pull the damaged charger tip out of the port. Grab a pair of tweezers and make sure that they can fit within the charging port of your phone.
  2. Insert the tweezers and attempt to grab ahold of the broken-off tip. This can and will take a few tries as they tend to be slippery.
  3. Once you have a firm grasp on the charger tip, gently pull it out. 

If you do not have a pair of tweezers, a pair of nail clippers can also do the job. Note that it is possible to damage the charger port with this method. Do your best to avoid touching the charger pins with the tips of the tweezers in order to avoid further damage to the device.

Use a Sim Ejector

  1. Grab yourself a sim ejector, preferably the smallest size available, so that you can easily poke at the charger.
  2. Insert the sim ejector into the charging port and move it around to cause the charger tip to loosen or wiggle out of the slot. 

Be warned that this can cause damage to the charging slot, so make sure to avoid any of the pins.
