    My husband's galaxy s5 is having problems with charging. He charges it overnight (with wall charger), but in the morning it hasn't charged back to 100%. We unplug and plug back in, but nothing happens.
    If I plug it into my galaxy s3 cable (wall charger), it immediately starts charging. Plug it back in s5 cable, and it sometimes charges and sometimes it doesn't.
    It charges fine when plugged into computer.
    He's bought a new wall charger plug only (not cable) but there is no difference...

    I hope this makes sense enough, for someone to answer

    Thanks for tips, advice, etc.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does the S5 charge at all with the current cable? Or does it charge up to, say, 90%, then stop? And does it charge all the way up to 100% with your S3 cable?

    Offhand, I'd say there's a problem with the cable. Is it the original cable that came with the phone? It may be worth getting a replacement cable--an official one, if possible, but most other cables should still work fine.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, it is original cable and plug, also have a generic plug.

    Current original cable and plug, and generic plug: yes, it charges to 100% for a few days and them stops charging completely.

    Yes, it does charge to 100% with original s3 cable and plug, no problems.

    And as I said, no problems charging through desktop computer, or laptop.

    We will check into getting a new cable and plug.
