    Exacty same problem with my 2 week old S3. Its taking ages to charge completely and that too using the charger. Made a big mistake I bought this. S3 SUCKS. To all those who want to buy s3. DONT EVER DO THIS MISTAKE. SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 SUCKS. Its complete waste of money.

    Come on! from dead to full charge it takes the S3 about 2.5hours to charge with the 1amp samsung Wall charger. If you charge via a computers USB port it will take forever to charge because USB ports DON'T PROVIDE ENOUGH POWER! You may also have a defective battery or phone or even the charger I suggest you get a replacement and stop trashing a awesome phone I have had mine since August and from dead to full charge it has always taken about 2.5hours to charge with the 1amp wall charger. 2.5 hours is normal charge time. And if you are using your phone while it is charging that will also increase charging time the same goes for any mobile device.

    I have had a problem with the cord, not the plug, that came with my phone being slow. I got my old Galaxy S cord and put it on my new plug and it charges normal now.

    I had the same thing with a brand new S3. I have used a PC USB port, netbook USB port, random USB charger (1A), a Samsung note charger (2A), Samsung Galaxy S3 charger (1A) and a Jackson USB charger, all with the same random USB cable.
    Then I used the cable from the box, and it charges quickly. The other one was noticeably thinner, and I guess it somehow restricted the amperage.

    I've seen that before out of a no name cable. I measured it and found that I was only getting about 4.5 volts at the phone.
    Oddly, I bought a bag of cheap cables from Amazon, at like $1.25 each, and those are all heavy wires.

    In my case the charger was the problem. On the male end that goes into the phone there should be 5 of those gold pins on the inside of it and in mine one was missing (broke apparently idk how).. The phone would take forever to charge (up to 6 hrs to charge it fully) and if i use it while it is plugged it i would either lose charge or stay at the same percentage battery life. Bought a new charger and the problem is gone.

    Me too ... my S3 LTE charge as slow. And while plug into wall charger... and I am using g it. The battery recovery seem slower than the battery consume. Help! I am so mad about it. Thinking if I am to buy a new charger or put my phone to the shop... sinception it is less than a year.
    This happened even I had tried hard to deactivate some application and cleared it.

    The only time it is slow is when I do not use the charger that came with it

    Cool Re: Slow battery charging time

    Same problem just developed with my Note. Overnight the battery is suddenly charging at a trickle compared to the rate during the first several months. I put in a new battery and it charged at the old fast rate for a day and then suddenly it also started charging too slow to keep up with any data usage. Change charger and cords. ..same result. Obviously, problem with the phone hardware or software that ruined two perfectly good batteries in a row. I read through dozens of completely useless answers but I know what you're talking about. I'm sure Samsung knows the problem's cause but will they admit it? Had same thing happen with my first smartphone, evo, a few years back about a year into my contract. Sprint's "diagnoses" had me buying battery, charger and downloading new software all of which had zero effect. Only thing that fixed it was replacing the phone. So I have no idea what the problem was except that it was probably in the phone hardware...a component like a resistor gone bad maybe? If a regulator goes bad on a car the battery sometimes gets too much juice and it burns out. Similar thing maybe..a resistor or something gone faulty?

    If you want to charge faster, you can buy an rapid-charger such as the Blackberry Premium Charger which is excellent, and charges twice as fast as the stock S3 Charger.
    The S3 Charger is 700mah, while the Premium-Charger is 1.8mah.

    Don't use the blackberry charger. The highest amp charger sold from samsung for this phone is 1amp at 5volts. Any higher amp or volt and you risk damaging your phone or shortening your battery life and battery damage. I use the samsung 1amp at 5v charger that is made for this phone and from dead to a full charge takes about 2.5 hours if you have the phone on while charging not using the phone while charging. At the risk of stating the obvious a blackberry charger is for blackberry's only and is not made to charge the Galaxy S3.

    There was also an video from Crackberry or Android Central saying that this was completely safe.
    You can also buy on AndroidCentrals shop!

    This is 50% BS.

    Use whatever amperage charger you can get. The electronics in the phone regulate the current. It is safe to charge from a 1 amp charger or a 10 amp charger, the phone will NEVER pull more then 0.8 to 0.9 amps. If the charger is 0.2 amps, that is OK too, but it will be a slow charge.

    As for the voltage, that half is correct. Always use 5 volts.
    I actually made an adjustable charger for when I use my phone as a GPS on my motorcycle. On a previous phone, I used close to 5.5 volts to charge it. It charged quicker, but the phone of course got warmer. The phone electronics protected the battery though, and all was well. For the S3, I didn't need that faster charge time, so it put it back down to 5 volts. No reason to run the phone hot. I haven't tried an over voltage charge with the S3 to charge quicker. It likely would work without much heat, but I don't need a quicker charge on it.

    Hi guys, this may be a possible solution:
    I have narrowed the problem down to the actual charging cable that you use.
    I too have an S3, which used to charge super slow, so what i did was the following:
    - borrowed my brothers S3 charging cable to check if that makes a difference; tried it, no difference at all!!
    - used my HTC ONE SV cable, and it worked!!

    - i use a battery charging monitor for the phone, while using the original s3 charging cable, id get a reading of 200 to 300 ma provided to the phone, but when i used the HTC cable the reading shot up to 1000 ma, in other words 1A, i know this monitor isn't 100% accurate, but it tells you that there is a difference made when you change the cable.

    - Also, when you look at the S3 charging cable's micro-usb port, it only consists of 4 golden pins, but the HTC cable has 5 pins, so the extra pin may make a difference.

    WARNING: do not throw away your original S3 charging cable because that is the only cable you can use to sync your S3 with your computer.

    You tried to see if you're using correct charger? If your phone requires a 1.2a but are using a 1a charger, speed of charge will drastically go down. Also if you're using an extender, or a ****tier quality cable, it will slow down the charge. I use a 1a charger with an extender to the original USB cable while charging overnight and it takes about 6 hours to fully charge. This is an advantage cause it charges slowly and battery temperature stays low.
