Galaxy S6 :: Fast Charging Vs Regular Old Cable Charging?
Dec 8, 2015
When I use an older, slower charger for my GS6 overnight, my battery usually lasts all day, unless under HEAVY use of video or music. However, when I use the Fast Charging cord that was boxed with my GS6, it seems to charge to 100% at lightning speed, but then seems to lose power 5 times faster the next day. I may barely use my phone for <10 minutes during the day, and it is down to 10% by 5pm! So, fast charging = faster battery loss? I'm not seeing an upside to the Fast Charging, at all.
I have an Iphone 4s that was purchased a few months ago. The charging cable all of a sudden would not charge my phone and I noticed there is a burn mark on the inside of the plug that goes into my phone. Is this cable covered under applecare plus warranty and should I be worried there is a problem with my phone?
This has happened 3rd time...1st time i gave to service center they took 2 days and changed "sub unit" of charging...with in 2 days this was 2nd time it stopped working again i had to again submit mine cell n they gave me after 12 to 14 days.......this is mine 3rd time It has been 4 months this is happening 3rd time again
I've had my edge for a few days now and everything has worked fine. Today however, fast charging is not working. Just went to plug it in and it said six hours until fully charged. Thought it was just because it was at 6% and need some more power or something to start the fast charge? Doesn't seem so. I tried different wall outlets and it's still not fast charging. I am using the charger that came with the phone. It's charging so incredibly slow.
My phone gets hot to the touch when fast charging, but after a while, it cools back down. Usually when it gets closer to finishing it gets cool again. And should I be worried about it heating up? I rarely fast charge for fear that the heat will cause damage
As of this morning, my phone no longer charges using the supplied Samsung charger. Additionally, when I UNPLUG the cable from my computer or the wall, I receive a notification saying "The dock is connected" which is obviously odd as I have actually just disconnected the cabling. Along with this message, the docking audible is heard when plugging in the charger on either the computer or the wall.
When I plug into my computer, the phone is no longer recognized as a USB device either which makes it difficult to back anything up at this point.
I do not have the lighting bolt or any blinking LED's while the charging cable is plugged in.
So far I have done the following to troubleshoot - tried different cable on both the computer and wall - power cycled the phone multiple times - checked for system updates. I am up to date. - cleaned / blown out the charging port - cleared system cache
I have not yet done a factory reset for obvious (last resort) reasons.
Just got the G4 last night and I bought a quick charger 2.0, but just wondering if there is a way to know that it is fast charging. Should it say so on the screen? I remember my buddy's Gflex 2 saying it, but mine doesn't.
My phone is working pefect before but from last one month appox its fast charging is not working, it is taking around 4-5 hours to charge completely. I tried Formating and software repair with PC Suit but nothing works.
I recently got my Nokia E72, and am trying out the USB Data Cable Charging "feature" - it just does not work for me. I wonder if am doing something wrong? The process of inserting the Data Cable is quite straight forward, the phone presents a menu of options "PC Suite..." which I promptly cancel. I then get a message "Charging", and about 15 seconds later I get a message about disconnecting the charger?
The battery/ phone are now in power save mode ie battery almost completely drained - right. So, why will it not charge through the data cable - it refuses. I have searched on the interweb, but seen to be the only one with this problem. The Nokia E72 manual mentions that charing is possible through the use of the Data Cable. I am directly connected to the computer (MacBook Pro 2009 Model). Mac OSX correctly detects the Nokia E72. Do I have to be in Windows XP?
Only problem is, I'm using the same exact USB cable that I have been using for nearly 2 years. It all the sudden is switching between not being supported and charging (which is annoying, as the phone is vibrating twice every 15 seconds now). Anybody have any clue?
Today my E72 just started "charging" without being attached to electric charger or USB. It's charging for couple minutes and then stops. And that happens every half hour. I will turn it off, take out the battery and hopefully it will stop.This phone is becoming more and more buggy. At first it was fast and everything worked gr8. After time it started to give me error messages, memory messages and so on.
My battery life really sucks, I have it on only 1EV, no gps, no wifi, and min apps and I still only get like a day of full battery with moderate use. My battery also charges from basically dead to full in like an hour or 2. I'm running .428 on my 9550, should I try to see what verizon can do? or can I do something on my end you think?
I switched from a 9000 to a 9700 so I bought mini to micro adapters to use on my car charger and my USB cable so that I wouldn't have to buy a bunch of new chargers.
When I plug my USB cable into my Belkin power block or cigarette adapter it won't charge, but if I plug in my wall charger or plug the cable into my USB port on my computer, it will charge my 9700. Both the power block and the cigarette adapter will charge my iPod, so I know it isn't the power block.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?
Over last one month, I have bought at least 4 new USB cables, and within a short period of time, these USB cables just refused to charge anymore, at least no more "lightning" signal on the apple devices indicated. While the condition of these cables are still very new, what could be the issue? I have ensure that my devices have the latest OS updated and yet these charging issues are happening more and more frequently.
Two days back i put my phone on a car charger and restarted it because an app wasnt working, since then its not working. If I take out the battery and put it in it switches on but the screen goes blank in a few seconds and the phone shuts down. If i put the battery back in and plug it to a charger immediately it stays switched on till the charger is plugged in but shuts down within seconds of removing the charger, i have tried a second battery also but it gives the same message.
I am using Xperia Neo for more than a year. The battery was fine, it usually lasted for 1.5 days with my usual use. Suddenly since 2-3 days, I notified that my battery was going down way faster than before and the phone temperature was much warmer.Battery hardly lasted for a day and it was going down even when in sleep.Last night I gave a full charge, disconnected it from the charger and went to bed. I also installed a 'Auto task killing app' to check whether it improves the battery life. In the morning I found that there was no charge in the phone. I tried to charge it, but its not charging, the red light is not coming up. Its not even detected or charged when I connect it to my laptop.The main changes that happened within last 2-3 days- 1) I updated Facebook app2) I installed a battery saver app, but uninstalled it3) Last night I installed a auto ask killer
About to replace 6500 Slide with X6 16gb, does anybody know if USB cable to laptop PC will allow charging or not? like the 6500 Slide does not.I know a car cigar lighter charger might work but I'm a train/bus traveller
I realize I'm careless for letting my battery die so often, but I have trouble unlocking my phone if I:let the battery die and the phone shut itself offplug the usb charger into my computer and the phoneturn on the phoneI end up being unable to unlock the phone. If I press the power button or menu button, I am prompted with the message "Use keyguard switch to unlock screen and keys" But sliding the keyguard switch has no effect.
My phone is totally dead, i cant do anything power button + volume up button , force restart button near the sim , and nothing happens , also when i connect to a usb charger the red light is blinking all the time. I need my xperia z2 back to live....
I got my iphone last year and the cable was fine but it started to crumble up wher you plug it into your phone.If you pull the crumble down it has a small hole and if you touch or move it the charger will not work so i have to unplug it and replug it in. Just wondering if i can get to apple to fix it i'm still under warrenty.
