    Hi all, I'm new to the Android world (and new to smartphones in general). Trying to catch up on about 7 years worth of mobile tech, so please bear with me. I'm very happy with my LG Optimus G, but when I charge it via wall outlet, I keep getting a message that says "Battery is charging slowly due to low electric current of TA/USB connection." I don't understand what this means. It does seem to charge way slow, though. I'm using the factory charger that came with the phone (Sprint model). I can charge it in the car with a car charger and indeed it does charge more rapidly and I don't get that message. This is not only annoying, but I assume that since I'm getting that message about it every time I plug it in, something is not right. Thoughts/help?

    I would suspect bad hardware. Either the adapter or the USB cable hooked to it.

    You shouldn't see this when you use the wall outlet. It's the wall charger that is likely bad, not the phone.

    If you use a computer usb to charge, you'll see this message, but shouldn't for the wall.

    Take the charger back to the store and ask for a new one.

    Thanks for the help. It was indeed a hardware/charger issue. Glad it wasn't the phone. Very happy with this LG.
