Okay, so my Samsung S2 Skyrocket SGH-I727 started burning through its battery life today, and keeps showing the following message: “Charging paused. Battery temperature too high”.
This problem persists with 2 different batteries, one of which is brand new. Relevant google searches make reference to a bad battery sensor in the phone.
The past few days on the East Coast have been uber hot and humid, and my phone face has been drenched in sweat after long phone calls. Perhaps some moisture has entered the phone? Time to put in into a bag of uncooked rice to see if this solves the problem.
UPDATE – I had to send this phone out for repair. The technician said that the Charging IC chip went bad and needed to be replaced. It took a little while to find the part, however the Charging IC was replaced and the phone is back in action. Many thanks to Josh and Kyle at MobileTechVideos.com
The following posts on xdaevelopers and Galaxy Forums seem to be addressing the same problem: [Q] Charging Paused can’t do anything
