Does anyone know where i can get an identical charge like the one that came with the phone? The reason why is because the one that came with my G3 makes an almost hissing sound during charging and its making me nervous.

uhm no. rechargeable batteries need a charging circuit in order to not overcharge and blow up (tried it, it does happen lol) consumer electronics have this built in because they don't want their consumers catching fire. As long as you provide it power, it'll charge. The charging circuit will take care of the rest. 2.1a chargers are widely available and will provide a fast charge

Are you sure it's a 2.1a charger? I swear my D850 was 1.8a.

Look on Amazon, but search for G2 chargers. I don't remember seeing any in the g3 section


Edit: looks like they have one now

You're obviously set on this oem thing, by all means, have at it. But if you want a good fast charger, get a 2.1a
