    My G3 3,000 mAh battery takes just as much time as my 7000 mAh-ish Nexus 7 battery to charge. Sorry if this is a repeat thread but can anyone else share the problem I'm having? 30 minutes on the charger (with casual use) increased my battery life by just 5%.

    5% over 30 minutes is really slow... you are right. But there's got to be something going on.... what charger are you using? What is the phone doing while it is charging? Are you having battery drain issues, etc.... If you are using the same charger/cable for both and seeing the G3 go THAT slow... something is up.

    My 2012 Nexus 7 would probably need 10 hours to charge on the stock cable, stock adapter and many others I've tried. Finally found a combination that works for me but ymmv: 'Frieq hi-speed' usb cable and 'New Trent NT90c' on Amazon. I also picked up the Nexus 7 dock to charge through the pins for when the device port fails. I can charge the device in reasonable time now.

    I'm using the stock LG charger. The phone screen is on (because I'm using it) but only for texting and emails. I typically get a full day out on a single charge, but I have atypical days where I need my car charger. I have Wi-Fi on only at home, location off, Bluetooth off, and no 3rd party task killers or battery monitors.

    How does it charge with the screen off? This screen does have a voracious appetite and it will most definitely charge slowly if you are actively using the phone, even if it is not processor intensive stuff.

    I am in lieu of Swiftkey. Should I install Swiftkey?

    Still much longer than my Galaxy S4. If I had to guess, 3.5-4 hour charge with screen off from 20%-100%.

    Well, only if you have issues. I'm playing around with the settings a bit... But I think that LGkm might have to work on gesture accuracy... I didn't type that LGkm earlier, the 'km' just appeared.

    But off topic reply is off topic.. Let's help this dude's battery issues.. Heh

    Same issues here. If I am using my G3 while charging, forget it... I'll die before it reaches 100%... However, if I let it sit and charge, it will charge completely in two hours. It's hard for me to keep my fingers off my phone. For reference, my S5 would be charging and I using netflix, charging was never a problem....

    Reminds me of my Thunderbolt days. The phone that single handedly set smartphones back a few years...

    After speaking to numerous Verizon tech support tiers, they told me it's a trickle charger and to expect 3-4 hour full charging cycles.

    The problem i have with charging is the cable, and getting the usb cable to insert properly. Here is one area that i feel the g3 lacks a bit.

    But i haven't noticed any problems charging per se.

    What is the output current? There should be a sticker on it that says something like "OUTPUT:5.0V=1.2A" Output voltage is 5 volts and max current of 1.2 amps.

    The higher the second value, the more current that the phone can pull (up to its own internal limit of course), the faster it charges the battery. I have a couple of older bricks for some older devices and stuff.... they are down around 300-500mA... The above rating is the LG charger than came with my Nexus 5. The charger that came with my new G3 is 1.8A, and the Nexus 7 (which has a massive battery) is 2.0A.
