In my case, after rebooting the phone, it jumps up! Yesterday it took a long time (about 45 min) to get from 2% to 11%. I turned the phone off during night. Today, I plugged it in without booting it. The loading-screen showed 11%. After booting, it went up to 50%!
I don’t know if there’s a relation to the fact, that the phone discharges in flightmode about 6% per hour since a few weeks… Some issue in the charge/discharge module?
This is so weird! I hope we will have different experiences with the next software update (1.8)… In the meanwhile check out this post. @therob also reported differences between loading screen and notification bar. Your issue also seems to be related to software.
This happens with wall charger or charging from computer usb port
Rebooting (usually) seems to fix it.
It happened v occasionally before 1.6 upgrade and much more since - now, possibly, about 20% of the time. Seems to be worse when I travel, so it could be something about going in/out of coverage and/or aeroplane mode.
I face the same problem as described above and identified the reason without having a real solution.
At the beginning, I had an old 2GB SD Card and all was right. This card died and I purchased a new one : a 32GB SDHC one.
Since this change, I face the problem described in this thread. By charging on a 220V plug, no problem. While charging on a USB port (on my laptop or in my car), sometimes charging doesn’t succeed.
When is happens, the solution consist in :
stop the phone
remove the sdcard and reinsert it.
restart the phone
It happens sometimes without any identified reason. When I face this problem, the other symptom is that I can’t mount my sdcard on a computer to read or write data. The computer tries to mount it without success.
If someone has a real solution to this problem, I would be glad to read it
I am checkling out this thread, as this morning, despite being on charge overnight, the phone had only reached 60%, and dropped quickly. I have just tried rebooting the phone, so let’s see. It seems to have gained 1%, but this seems quite a large problem so early into owning this phone…
So, to sum up… there is no hardware or software solution to this problem?
My cable did not change, it’s quite new; I don’t use a SD card; all of a sudden it stops charging; it charges very slowly after reading all the forums and restarting only, luckily, but must we accept this inconvenient truth?
