S4 battery charging slowly

I have a Samsung i9500 running 4.4.2, had lots of lag and battery issues, so i factory reset earlier today. Everything's great and all, running smoothly, but battery is charging slowly. It's been charging about 2% in the past 30 minutes (granted I was reinstalling my apps during that time), while normally maybe charged already 10-15% while in use. Any insights?

Re: S4 battery charging slowly

Welcome to Android Central! If you were using your phone fairly intensively while trying to charge, that will make the charging process slower. Installing apps is pretty processor intensive, so what you're describing is not surprising.
