    Hi, i have got the Zerolemon battery 10000mhA since February of last year.
    In this period I have changed two chargers for charging my phone with Zerolemon battery.
    I've noticed that probably both are broken and the charging is slow now.
    I'm trying a third charger (also original) for a Samsung Tab 4 and I noticed that all three chargers have 2A in output.
    But I'm noticing that the plug and the charger are overheating and probably the previouses chargers were damaged because a high consumption by our Zerolemon's battery was made..
    I wonder if this charger aren't enough for our large battery.
    Could be better a 3A charger good for Raspberry?

    A second question: the discharging when I upgraded to Marshmallow OS (stock firmware N910FXXU1DPD3) is very fast.
    Do you know why?

    While overall more amperage is better, 2A should be more than sufficient to charge any battery - and the charger should be able to manage its own heat and just charge the phone more slowly. The ZeroLemon is big but it should not be drawing power any faster than a normal charger. However, a 3A charger should be able to dissipate more heat, which means it won't get so warm and cook itself.

    As far as discharge, a lot of people run into faster battery discharge when they upgrade operating systems. Sometimes clearing the cache helps (power off your phone, press POWER-HOME-VOLUME UP simultaneously, wait for the menu, choose the option to clear the cache partition, then choose the option to restart). Sometimes it takes a factory reset.

    Thank you my friend.
    Just now I've noticed your message.
    I confirm that since latest update to Marshmallow the phone drains a lot of battery and sometimes lags and restarts.
    I've read that many users unfortunately claim this mode operation of their Note 4.
    Infact it seems that Samsung is giving a little update of about 300Mb to fix these issues...but now it's only for ITV devices.
    Mine is a H3G (HUI) brandized and the upgrade is still not available..
    I regret for this upgrading I did because Lollipop worked great!!

    For about the charger I bought online a Raspberry's charger with 3A output but I'm waiting for it...

    Personally when I read your post I'm inclined to believe that the battery drain after marshmallow update is a coincidence and that what you're really experiencing is battery failure that's affecting the chargers. The fact that you're noticing heat at the connector is what leads me to feel this way. I would switch back to stock battery and see if issues with charging and heat subside.

    Yes, probably you're right. But I need to use this battery and the original battery was built for a smaller amperage.
    Anyway this overheating is abnormal and at beginning the connector didn't overheat at least compared at these times..
    I can't exclude this possibility...
