    ok so I got the skyrocket i727
    I have this charger :Amazon.com: PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w Travel Wall Charger with Swivel plug for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 5 4s 4 3 3Gs, Amazon Kindle Fire HD DX KeyBoard, Samsung Galaxy Tab (USB Cable NOT included) - BLACK: MP3 Players & Accessories
    and this cable: Amazon.com: AmazonBasics USB Cable - 2.0 A Male to Micro B (6 Feet / 1.8 Meters): Electronics

    with those I get 0.04 amps to 0.07 amps

    using the powergen with stock cable I stick at 0.06 amps

    stock cord and charger get me 0.02 amp to 0.04 amps

    stock charger with amazon cord I get 0.02 amps to 0.07 amps.

    turning the phone off seems to make no difference what so ever. in fact sometimes worse, I tried flashing stock 4.1.2and it helped a little then it boot loops
    I have no problems running cynogenmod and it never did this before on cynagenmod

    whats going on? I tried 2 different OEM batteries
    same amp rates nothing different

    Another cable/charger set up to test then? If that doesn't work, I am afraid you may have a connector problem in the phone.

    I used a third stock with a mediabridge cable yielding only 0.07-0.08

    is there any way to fix it if this is true?

    To fix it, I would guess yes. The question is how, which I do not know.

    That is an option. The worst they are going to say is that they can't do anything for you.

    There is a known issue. Use an OEM charger.

    What he said. There have been many issues with the Skyrocket and poor charging, as well as the dreaded wakelock which eats your battery.

    A 2 amp charger solved my problem.

    For my car or for my home, I only have success charging my S2 when I have a 2 amp charger.

    The phone only sucks the power when it needs it, it charges reliably and it stops charging (or slows to a trickle) when it doesn't need the power.

    A 2 amp charger will cost a bit more $$ but it solves a lot of grief.
