I have four ways to charge my Lumia 800:
Since the 7.8 update (or so it seems) I cannot charge the phone with anything other than 1 or 2 unless my battery is at a certain level (less than 25% it seems).
If my phone is totally dead, 3 and 4 will do nothing other than show the red battery - they wont revive the phone. Yet if I need a top up, they seem to work
Is it possible the new firmware had altered the amount of charge the device needs and thus is ignoring other methods?
When charging with 3 and 4, the Diagnostics tell me I'm connected but it fluctuates between (Charging) and (Discharging), never getting more that 90 mA charge. 1 and 2 give a permanent (Charging), averaging 260mA.
My adapter charger has a 350mA output and has always worked before now.
You need at least 1A (1000 mA) output from your charger in order for the phone to recognise it and actually charge. Anything less is just messing up your battery.
Thanks for your reply.
So even though I've been charging fine with these other methods, I've probably been doing my battery no good?
I'll invest in a few quality chargers then.
