  1. None of the above suggestion works for me. What I am doing now is to heat up my Galaxy S6 Edge using the fan of my laptop while charging it. So far, I do not get the “Temperature Too Low” message and it is now at 68% full. The body of my S6 was always lukewarm. In the last two days, it has been much colder than usual (like when you turn off the phone). Today was the first time I have the “Temperature Too Low” message when I tried to charge it. It did not let me charge it. I then place the S6 next to the fan of my laptop until it feels lukewarm and plugged in the charger. So far so good. It is now 70%…

  2. Funny thing is that my samsung galaxy A7 is giving me the error when i plug in Apple earphones and my charger. Then the message appears. But as soon as i take out the jack of the earplugs it starts charging. How crazy is that… so Apple doesn’t let me charge my android.

    • Wow was literally the case for me now. Except it’s random earphones. Plugged everything out and out the charger back in and now it works.
      Dropped my phone in the toilet about a week ago and just got this issue now.

  3. A lot of charging issues personally are caused by water getting into my phone. Wipe your cache by booting your phone with Power + Home + Volume Up, then turn it off and put it in a bag of rice for at least a day without using it. For me, it usually only takes 8 hours for the problems to fix but who knows what may have happened for your cases. Good luck!

  4. I got a little water on my Samsung Galaxy s6 edge and
    since it has been me the error message battery temperature to low and my phone will not charge. There really wasn’t much water that got on my device so I’m not sure why I’m receiving this message. Is there any way I can resolve this issue because I don’t have insurance ????????

  5. i get this message as i think my phone got damp and will not charge, even wirelessly (charging port wont work at all!) if i heat the phone up with my hairdryer and put it on the charging pad then it charges fine for 20mins

  6. I got the same message, but what I did was just left it on the charge n it does charge but make sure u turn off ur phone, it’ll show u the same msg but ignore ur phone n let it charge, it’ll charge eventually
