nokia lumia 920 slow charging

Hi,

I bought a new micro usb cable to have as a spare to charge my lumia 920 but have found that any micro USB cable that I use apart from the one that came with the phone will take forever to charge. The original cable when plugged into the mains will charge the battery from 10% to 100% in under 3 hours, any other cable can take up to 12 hours.

I have a battery app installed that tells me the % of charge per hour. The original charger gives me about 38% an hour while my other cables only manage 8% an hour.

anybody else experience these problems while using other cables?

Aftermarket OEMs might have a different amperage,if you your charging via pc your USB ports probably have different output capacity's.

Hello, all!

Slow charging is good to preserve the baterry. If you must recharge the battery fast, use the Nokia´s recharger, but if you leave the cell recharging the entire night, use de slowest as possible recharging mode. It´ll recharge the entire battery anyway and will preserve it for more and more future recharging.

Other tip: use the battery to the extreme end, until the GOODBAY message and recharge it for more 30 minutes, after the full bettery icon on display. It´ll preserve the baterry´s life for much more time and rechargings.

Thanks.

Peter

@Artmos your suggestions may be valid for Li-Ion batteries, but they are not suggested for Li-Polymer. For example, using a Li-Po battery to the extreme end will definitely shorten it's life.
