iPad mini 2 won't charge

My iPad fell off the bed while charging, bending the Lightning connector slightly, so that I had to prop the cable up on something before it would charge.

Now, though, it has gotten worse, to the point of hardly charging at all.

Is there anything I can do to remedy this, short of replacing the logic board or doing microsoldering?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

[] try another cable if they work...

[] if the pins have been damaged but workable, try something like a "magnetic usb charger" for Iphone/ipad, they're cheap and they snug fit into the device's port and wont have to be removed at all.

It helps if a little movement/or angular variation in your charging cable causes the charging issue.

Oh wow. I had no idea that existed. I'll give it a try. Different cables don't help, but perhaps this will. At this point I have to wiggle it to get it to register a connection at all, and it won't connect consistently. I'm pretty sure I bent the connector somehow, but I'm not quite sure what is damaged.

yeah give it a try and see if helps, otherwise you'd probably have to replace your connector . thanks
