    Default Extremely slow charging

    My wife got a new 2013 nexus 7 for Christmas. Out of the box the tablet was dead and I had to put it on the charger. After setting for 8 hours it went from basicly 0 to only 90%. During this time it upgraded to 4.4.2. My wife and I both have nexus 5s and both only take a few hours to charge from basicly 0. I did try different chargers in the house, the same ones we use with our 5s so I know they are good. The tablet was purchased from Amazon so I'm debating on sending it back unless someone knows a trick.

    Also the tablet is basicly stock. No apps outside what came with it have been installed and the tablet isn't rooted.

    First the Nexus 7 has a 71% larger battery than the Nexus 5. Second Nexus 5 has a Snapdragon 800 which utilizes quick charge. what is the amperage of the charger that came with the Nexus 7 as compared to the amperage of the charger from the Nexus 5?

    Your charging pattern also might be a little unusual in that your tablet did a system update during this initial charge. System updates can use a fair amount of battery, so that might be why it seemed it wasn't charging that fast. See how it charges the next cycle, when the tablet isn't doing anything.

    The chargers are both 1.2A for the N5 & N7/13. I'll give it another cycle & see how it goes.

    Make sure your using the charger and cable that came with the Nexus 7. Regardless of what the rating says there may be a difference between the charger for the Nexus 5.

    Well it was the tablet. The audio quit working and I rebooted the tablet. Well it started boot looping never getting past the Google logo. I sent it back to Amazon for a new one.
