If your Skullcandy Indy Evo is not charging it could be due to dirt on the buds or charging case, software glitches, outdated firmware or you have placed buds incorrectly in the case.

1. Clean Skullcandy Indy Evo

The first thing you should do is clean the charging poles of your Skullcandy Indy Evo. Because when they are dirty, electricity will not pass from the case to the earbuds. 

For cleaning, you will need a toothpick and rubbing alcohol. To clean, pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the toothpick, gently move it on the poles, and make sure the charging poles are free of dirt. 

After that, dry the earbuds with the cotton cloth and ensure there is no alcohol left. Then place both Indy Evo buds in the case and whether or not they begin charging. 

If not then move on to the next fixes.

2. Clean Charging Case

After cleaning the charging poles of the Indy Evo buds, clean the charging pins of the case because earbuds charge when the charging poles connect with the charging pins. 

However, when the pins are dirty, they won’t pass the electricity. So, it would help if you cleaned them. 

For cleaning, pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the soft cotton cloth and clean the pins. After completing the cleaning, make sure the pins are dry. 

Then place both buds in the case to check whether they are not beginning to charge. 

If not, then read the following solutions.

3. Properly Place Buds

Sometimes we don’t correctly place Skullcandy Indy Evo earbuds in the case, due to which they will not charge. 

Mostly the mistake is we don’t connect the earbuds’ charging poles with the case’s pins. 

This can be due to incorrectly placed ear tips on the earbuds or damaged pins of the charging case. So, when placing the Skullcandy Indy Evo in the case, ensure ear tips are properly stuck with the buds. 

This way, your earbuds will correctly connect with the case and begin charging.

4. Press Earbuds After Placing

If your Skullcandy Indy Evo is not charging, you should press the earbuds gently after placing them in the case. 

Because the issue mainly occurs when the charging poles of the earbuds don’t connect with the pins of the charging case. 

So, pressing the earbuds will ensure they are appropriately connected to the case.

5. Charge Properly

Sometimes, the battery of the earbuds is completely drained, so they need more time to charge. You should make sure everything involved in the charging process is working correctly. 

Because sometimes, the charging cable or charging case port is faulty, due to which the case doesn’t charge and, as a result, earbuds.

 So, you should also keep an eye on these things if you are having a charging problem. 

Also, allow earbuds to charge for more than 1 hour if they are completely drained, or you have not charged them for a long time.
