strange (not just slow) charging

I have the Sunshine T1 tablet (aka Cloudmobile?) running Android 11. It works quite well considering what I pad for it :) , even the battery life isn't so bad. But the charging behavior drives me nuts. It isn't just *slow*, but crazy nonlinear. I mean, it's slow but steady from 0 to about 85%, and very quick from 90% to full, but that stretch between 85 and 90 takes *at least* an hour, probably more.

The system seems to consider 90% as close to full because there is an option to turn off the battery saver mode when it gets there. So I would like to reach at least that point before starting to drain it again.

Is this perhaps normal for some batteries? Or am I doing something wrong? I always put it in airplane mode when charging. I also tried different cables and charging locations, neither makes a difference.

Depends on the charging method you're using, but this is usually normal behavior. Charging speeds are faster on the low-mid battery range and begin to slope down as it reaches full capacity.

Welcome to Android Central! I agree with SpookDroid, although I'm not sure why it goes quickly from 90% to 100%. It might be a quirk of the firmware's battery reporting software.
