Particles with small electric charges can be produced abundantly in extensive air-showers, generated from the collisions of cosmic rays with the earth's atmosphere. These millicharged particles can leave their imprints at underground experiments via scattering-off electrons. In this report, we present updated constraints using low energy data from Super-Kamiokande, and the XENON1T experiment. Moreover, we provide new sensitivity projections for millicharged particles in the future JUNO neutrino observatory, and discuss different search strategies including both, single-scattering events, and multiple-energy-deposition traces.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
