    Default Re: Why such a long time for charging S3

    Thanks worwig and funkylogik for the info. I just found my old wall charger for my mytouch 4G and now there's no problem with the charging. I guess my stock s3 charger crapped out lol

    I don't use power saving mode at all and it still takes 2+ hours.

    I used to have an extra battery for me old LG phone. It doesn't take much time at all (Windows Phone restart really fast) and you feel like you are reloading a gun.

    I used to have a playbook charger and that was immense for charging my 9860 at the time. although there was a warning on crackberry I think not to use it consistently . I seriously cannot see a problem with a few hours to trickle charge. put it on charge, go to sleep!

    I get mine to Fully charge in about an hour or less. I did this by going back to charging with the cord and wall charger that came with S3 because it has more amps which is faster and Samsung's S3 cord has a hidden modification in it to cause Turbo charge ...LOL...i was just using any charger that i was close to til I decided to test this and the test proved this true to use the original.....

    Ok guys help me out here. My S3 is 5 weeks old. Today I put my phone on wall charge and in 6 hours it went from 15% to 42% ARE YOU KIDDING ME. And I don't use my phone while charging. WHAT SHOULD I DO??

    I'm finding very slow charging with the CORD, not the plug, that came with the S3 also and mine is only a couple of weeks old.

    The cord, not plug, from my Captivate connected to the new plug from my S3 charges great.

    Odd. I use my cord and plug in that came with the phone and from low battery (like 10% or lower) it takes about 2 hours - 2 hours 15min to go to full. I always reboot then plug the phone in to charge. And I rarely use it while charging (maybe a few text messages) but that's it.

    help!my samsung galaxy s3 charging time was for about 8 hours using the original charger what should i do?

    Default Re: Why such a long time for charging S3

    It's true that it is always best to charge with the stock charger, and to stay away from computer usb ports. The reason is more likely due to the different voltage or mah that they can move. Why don't you check what the voltage statistics are for your generic chargers vs the Samsung. When I use Samsung's wall charger I can get from 0-5% to 100% well under 2-3 hours

    I keep my phone and power saving mode on. Again, I think it is the cord, not plug, that comes with the S3.

    The app will teach you how to charge your battery healthily. I download it on my htc one x and find it really helpful. May be you can have a try.
    Teach you to charge it healthily?

    You plug it in the charger, not Rocket Science.

    My phone is taking extremely long to charge too, it wasnt this bad when i first got it 4 months ago, now it takes an inordinate amount of time, I cant even remember the last time I was able to let it charge to 100% simply because it takes too long. I also even conditioned the battery when i first started using it.

    Well, there area few possibilities. First, try a different charger, cable and/or USB port. Bad cables have been known to cause problems, and it's easy to eliminate these three possibilities first.

    If none of those are the culprit, give us some more data: Define "long time." If you charge it over night, at what percentage is your battery when you start and when you take it off the charger? After how many hours?

    Are you charging from a wall outlet, or a USB port on your computer?

    Are you trying to do things in the background (stream music or video, for example)?

    Do you have the phone set to keep the screen on when charging? If so, at what brightness?

    Try doing screen captures of your battery stats screens after the phone has been charging over night and posting them here.

    Charging my GS3 with PC takes ages, with the wall charger I'm averaging on 2 hours 29 minutes, if you're using wall charger is the wall output strong enough have u tried others, are u using a wall charger with enough Amp?

    I am on Sprint but nabbed a Verizon charger the other day (just some normal Android charger) from one of their stores since it's near my work. Not going to lie.. My phone (with that charger only) charges pretty dang fast. I am always shocked. I can go from like 20 percent to 95+ in an hour and a half or so.. Nothing crazy but I do believe it's faster than my stock one that came with the phone.

    All chargers have their specs on the exterior. Why can't you just check the OEM charger and battety yourself, instead of complaining about other's responses.

    My charges speeds are okay for me. Unlike tablets the S3 can charge from single digits to 100% well around a hour, and even faster with the wall charger.

    All batteries are not the same, so the fact that a S3 takes longer to charge (with a larger battery) is not wrong.

    What are you going on about? I don't see anyone complaining about your prior post. Or anyone else's post for that matter. People are posting their experiences and suggestions, just like you did.

    But if you want a response, I'll point out the poster immediately above your previous post said she was using the OEM charger, so your advice to avoid 3rd party chargers wasn't germane.

    I have an HP touchpad touchstone charger. the plug says the output is 2.0 A. will it hurt my sgs3? can i use this? i saw on previous post that theres a charger for a blackberry thats a little lower then this.. so will this help or hurt?

    No, it won't hurt.

    You can use any USB charger to charge the S3. Chargers don't "push" current, the device draws it, and the GS3 won't draw more than about 800 milliamps (mA), according to one forum member who says he's tested it, no matter what the maximum output of the charger is. All USB chargers should put out 5 volts. (If one doesn't, it's defective.)

    I think the stock GS3 charger puts out 700 mA, so your HP charger will allow the phone to draw its max of 800 mA, rather than limiting it to 700 mA. So assuming everything else is working correctly it would charge slightly faster.
