    Default why does my phone charges slow and drains battery so fast?

    I've bought a new charger but it wasn't samsung. I plugged it on my phone and it charges sooo slow. So then I change the voltage power supply (samsung one) thing.And it charges faster. So then I went to school, (it was 99%)I didn't even use my phone much I only text. So when I come back home, my phone was 10%.
    Why is my phone like this?

    And another question, is it bad to have a different voltage with different adapter? (if youre asking whats the voltage and stufff.. Idk what is it..dunno where to look)

    The stock charges (comes with the phone) will always be the best for charging, so I always stick to those.
    We're going to need screenshots of your battery stats if you want a better opinion on it. Depending on your usage and settings that could be completely normal

    Any adapter of the same brand should be fine. You can check your battery stats in settings > more > battery
    Screenshots are taken by holding home and power for a few seconds
