    It seems like I could plug my old Moto Droid1 in to charge, and within an hour it was ready to go. With the Samsung Charge phone I have now, It feels like it charges REALLY slowly. I had it on the charger for an hour last night and only gained about 20-30% of an increase in battery.

    Just me, or is anyone else seeing this too?

    Mine charges quickly enough. I usually do it while sleeping but I think I went from dead to around 30% in an hour.

    Slower than my old phones, including a Blackberry. I think it is about the same as my wife's Fascinate.

    Forever. I'd think this can be changed in a software update. I hope it can be at least.

    I am going through the same issues with my Charge charge. I am now trying to charge it with the cover off on a cool surface. Maybe it's overheating??????

    So I took it out of the case and placed it on a cool surface. It was very warm! It is charging faster now. It was going at a snail's pace and at about 52% when I sent my last post. It is up to 83% now.

    My charge will go from 15-20% to full in about 3 hours plugged into the ac charger. When plugged into the usb, it's slow.

    Same, it's pretty slow inductive charging (not a problem since I charge all day on a desk or nightstand while sleeping) and slow on the USB side. When I charge it through the AC adapter it goes much quicker and not really a problem.

    My D1 did charge faster, but I believe this is also a bigger battery. I think this is the noticeable difference for people coming from older androids or blackberrys.

    Its pretty slow, slower than my Thunderbolt but I think they do this to prolong battery life. Fast charging really heats up the battery and causes loss of battery life and other issues like fires. My Samsung Epic also charged slowly.

    I got the extended battery and it seems to take about twice as long to charge, although it's looks like it's 3x the size of the standard battery.

    I only wish they made protective covers that can handle the extra bulk...

    I totally drained my DC until it would not power on any longer, plugged it in and 3.5 hours later it was fully charged,
