    Default LG g2 not charging with original charger

    Occasionally since the KK update, when plugged in to the original charger, I get an error saying that charging has been stopped and I need to plug in my phone to the original charger. Typically I can unplug then replug in the charger and after a time or two it would realize it's the original charger and charge like normal. Now it is completely refusing to charge with the original charger. Any ideas what is wrong/what I can do? I had been excited about the KK update but it's been more trouble than its worth in some cases

    You could try turning the phone off, then on again. Check that the microusb connection is clean. Good luck. If everything else fails, try a factory data reset.

    Make sure you're using both the original charger and the original charging cable.

    Actually, I would try a different USB cable and/or charger... this sounds like a cable issue. I have charged my G2 from lots of sources, HTC/Motorola/Samsung chargers, third party chargers, computers, servers, etc. and have seen an "incompatibility" error.
    Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on AT&T (SimpleAOSP/hells-Core Kernel/LTE)
    Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (Snuzzo's Plain-Andy ROM)
    Current Tablet: iPad 4/Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
    Other phones "in the family": HTC One (M7), Moto G GPE, LG G2
    Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria/Incredible 2/Rezound/DNA, Samsung Stratosphere, SGS2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P

    I wouldn't blame kitkat, definitely think it's a problem with the cable or your charging port. Check for debris in the port, that could be interfering.

    I mainly use my original charger, but also occasionally use my Nexus 7 charger, kindle fire charger, an Anker external battery with its own cable, and an Anker car charger all with no errors and fast charging. The only time I ever got any warnings before or after kitkat was with an older car charger with low output that warned of a slow charge.
