    Default S3 not charging fast

    I've had my s3 for almost a year and this past week it's battery has been charging slower and slower. Now it takes 5-10 minutes to charge 1%. Charging overnight does not fill it either. Luckily it does not drain faster. Is the problem my battery? I've used both the USB and wall charger with the same results.

    The battery might be showing it's age. A new one is relatively inexpensive and probably a good place to start for troubleshooting.

    If you regularly use the battery until it's down to 10% or less, a year is about all you can expect from it. You get the longest life by charging it at the 40%-60% point. (Deeply discharging the battery gives you 200-300 charge cycles on most lithium ion batteries.)
