    Why does our phones take so long to charge from the PC rather than from the wall?

    USB charging via PC isn't called trickle charging for nothing.

    I wrote up a little something about chargers. Used Cell phones, Refurbished Cell Phones, and No Contract Cell phones from Falken Mobile — Micro USB Chargers
    Its pretty much what the others have said. The USB port on a computer is usually putting out half of the power as the stock wall chargers. 1 amp verses 500mAh, or half the power. Half the power is double the time.

    EDIT Dont let the title of the link fool you, i only put the link to the small write up i did about chargers, not trying to sell anybody a phone. LOL
