Recently my original charger only charges at 700ma vs the original 1200-1300 ma before. Now my phone charges half as fast, which is an annoyance but not a huge problem. Anyone got any ideas?

I had the same problem from day 1 when i received the phone. I contacted Google and they wanted me to send them the complete set of phone and box to send me a replacement. I simply used an older usb charger that came with my older phone.

I think its a quality or defect problem.

Just out of curiosity, how are you measuring the current draw?

Really? How do you see the "absolute" input current? I thought bmw only showed the difference between the charge and drain currents...

That is normal and avoids damaging the circuitry
