    I am charging my LG G3 from 4AM at 14% Battery Life got up at 8:30AM battery is on 57%!
    Could anybody explain me why it takes so loooooong to charge a stupid battery? In this time my LG G2 was charged already while on the LG G3 I am not even half charged!
    Is there a problem?
    Anybody has a batter or faster charger?
    Please help

    P.s. Yes! I am using the charger it came with the G3/G2 (same 1.8Amp Charger)

    Mine took awhile to charge the first time or two. Now it's quick.

    I don't understand this. My G3 charges quickly...I've never felt the need to time it accurately but we're talking about 1-1½h from a lowish state, say 40%, to reach 100%. At first I wondered whether the voltage pressure difference between 110v in some parts of the world, and 240v in others (I'm in UK), might make a difference to charging time, but a quick research suggested that it doesn't.

    Definitely should not take that long. Mine takes about 1.5 hours for a full charge.

    Its already my 3rd night charging this phone, first time/night I understood that it took long but what's a up with the 3rd night? I am still stuck at 58% from 4AM which was at 14% and now 9AM its still at 58%, is there anyway to make this faster? I am going nuts! And forget about when the screen is on it won't charge at all, it will stay at that amount if something it will go down while plugged in, while my G2 had no problem charging while screen on or off!

    You use the charger and cable it came with the phone?

    Figured it out! The charger that comes with the phone is crap! 1.8Amp is garbage, I got into my car at 10:01 with 60% at 10:20 it was at 80% and that's a car charger on 2.4Amp charger! So I ordered now a 2.4Amp charger from Amazon!!!

    Yep. You might want to see if you can exchange the charger.

    The charger that came with mine has an output of 5v, 1.8amps, and I don't have charging problems. Are you sure you've hit on the right fix?

    I'd have to agree with others, if you had to upgrade the charger when other do not you're fixing the wrong side of the equation.

    It took my phone about three hours to charge from 20% to 100% this morning.

    If 1.8 doesn't charge and 2.4 does than yes!

    That's also with me using it a good amount of time. It's hard for me to keep my hands off of my phones.

    Try it over night, like the amount of time I gave and let me know

    I'm sure that if I charged it over night that it would be fully charged when I woke and that I'd have no idea when it was full.

    And BTW the phone has to charge normal while using it not draining or remaining the same!

    Just got my G3 and wondered...does anyone else think it is really hard to put the charger into the device? Maybe I am just use to my S4 being "loose" but it just seems like its really tough connecting the charger...at first I thought I had it going in the wrong side up but I was wrong.

    Yes. It seems to be necessary to mate the two together in a more precise position than other phones I've known and you feel you're doing it wrong and are going to do damage.
