    Default Charging issues.

    Why can i not charge my phone using my car's USB port? I am using the factory charging cable that came with the phone. It tells me to use a compatible cable.

    Welcome to Android Central! Car USB ports may not have a charging circuit, since they probably expect you to use the DC power outlet.

    Many car ports only supply 500ma, which isn't sufficient to charge the G2.
    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

    You need to purchase a car charger that is a minimum of 1.8A (1800mA) to charge the phone. I purchased a rocketfish charger from best buy that is 2A and it charges just as good as my wall charger.
