    Default One thing I've noticed on the Note II

    One thing that's a big step up on the Note II is the Charger.
    It's a 2 amp charger so more juice flows through it and can charge the battery much faster.
    Today I was at 19% when I plugged in, within 3 hours it was 100%.
    Now that may not seem much but with a 3100 mA battery that is super fast.
    An iPhone charger would have taken much longer.
    I will try to deplete the battery completely and do a full charge just to see how long it takes.

    Yes, the Note II still rocks!

    That is why I tend to charge my devices with my Nook Color charger. It's a 3 amp charger. Phone gets a little warm sometimes but it charges fast!

    I have noticed that the newer ones are actually 1.9 amp but I'm pretty sure my older one is indeed a 3. Gets my phone a bit warm at times. Sometimes makes the touchscreen a but quirky while charging.

    My GN2 makes kind of a gurgling or buzzing when i plug it into the wall. Is that normal? Does anyone else have that. I can hear it standing a little ways away from the phone.

    That doesn't sound normal. Mine makes no such sounds while charging.

    I'm going to have to retract my statement about the Nook Color charger being a 3 amp charger....... I just checked my other one and it also says 1.9 amp. Hmmmmm. Now I have to figure out what charger I have that I saw the 3 amp rating on.......

    But the B&N charger still does a bang up job of charging my android phone. And it is fast.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Phones usually only charge at the rate they can handle and the max is usually what the charger with the phone can do, so even if you use a 3 amp my guess would be it would only be charging at 2 amps anyways.

    Good info. I was just using the one from my SGSIII. Turns out the GN2 is a 2.0 amp output and the SGSIII charger is 1.0 amp. Finally broke out my GN2 charger!

    @ mixo- I have a ton of battery experience from racing r/c cars, and just a bit of advice, you can charge at any amperage you want. The smart thing to do is to charge with the supplied charger from the box. With a li-ion battery you should really charge at 1c, which is 3.1 amps max for a 3100 mah battery. They give you a 2 amp power adapter in order to preserve battery life since you're putting less strain at the lower amperage. Not trying to battle or anything just figured I'd pass my knowledge along!

    It takes 2.5 hours from about 5% on the Samsung battery charging case/stand. Probably a little longer if you charge on the phone because it needs to keep the phone powered.

    Listen close. Plug the GN2 in and listen. Does anyone hear a strange sound. Kind of hard to describe. I can hear it several feet away once I know what the sound is.

    I hear a quiet high-pitched buzz that cycles on and off during the night. I have it plugged in charging next to my bed. It drove us crazy until we got used to it. Now I don't notice it.
    Does your gurgling/buzzing cycle on and off?

    Mine is on a table next to my bed... Never noticed any noises, and I keep it plugged in overnight. Now I'm kind of afraid to actually try listening for it. I might not be able to ignore it !
