Electrical issues with the battery of the device due to age of model and overused battery capacity.
Battery Doesn't Last Long ¶
If the LG X Power will not power on or show any sign of charge unless it is plugged, you will need to try to exchange the battery for a new battery. This may be caused by overuse or leaving it charging too long.
The way to do that is by first opening the back cover of the phone by using one of the metal spudger's from the set. You can start from the bottom of the phone and put the spudger between the back cover and the side to open up the back. Then you can take out the battery and replace it with another battery.

Device is Not Charging ¶
If the phone is plugged into the charger coming from a computer or laptop and is not displaying the charge light in the top-left corner, first check the charging settings in the phone and make sure that it is set to charge and not file share. If the the phone is plugged into the charger directly connected to a wall outlet, then it could be the charging port is not properly working and will need to be replaced. This could happen by incorrectly plugging it in or even a faulty charging cord could affect the device negatively. You might need to replace the charging adapter using this guide.
