Successor to the popular Google Pixel 6, the Pixel 7 smartphone features a more powerful Tensor G2 processor, improved connectivity and AI features, and a better fingerprint reader.

However, like any other mobile device, Pixel 7 is also not immune to various bugs and issues. Now, some are experiencing issues while charging their phones.


Google Pixel 7 units occasionally bounce between charging and not charging with different USB cables

Some Google Pixel 7 owners (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) are experiencing difficulties charging their phones in one go as their devices randomly bounce between charging and not charging states.

They have used third-party applications like Accu-battery to record stats about the same. The issue even pops up when different USB cables are used for charging.


A Pixel 7 user complains that they hear charging notification sounds even when their smartphone is fully charged. Although, their mobile doesn’t display any pop-up when these sounds play.

They also mentioned that they are using the original charger and cable shipped with the device.

Another smartphone owner claims that they hear charging notification sounds after an interval of a minute or two. Also, they have not activated adaptive charging.

Anyone else have issues when charging? I notice that (even with different charging cables) the phone will bounce between charging and not charging. Thanks.

Pixel 7 occasionally has charging “bounces” where it acts as if it were unplugged and plugged back in repeatedly.

Those affected even mentioned that the cables fit correctly into the phone’s USB port. So, it might be possible that the problem lies within the charging port itself.

It is worth mentioning that some Pixel 6 series smartphone owners (1,2,3,4) are experiencing these issues as well. And we hope that Google will resolve the issue for everyone affected.

In the meantime, we’ll keep tabs on the issue where some Google Pixel 7 units occasionally bounce between charging and not charging even when using different USB cables.

We will update this article if we come across any new info.
