Default Battery Issues - 65+ hours to fully charge?!?!

Hello,

I discovered a weird issue with my phone this morning. I woke up and the battery was sitting at 64% after charging overnight. That seemed a little weird so I tried doing several different things (battery pull, clear the cache, etc...) to see if it would correct the issue. It did not. I just got done draining the phone completely and then plugged it in. In about an hour's time, it charged 2%.

The only thing that I have not tried at this point is a full system restore

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Do you have any ideas of things for me to try? I am willing to try anything before using a full restore as a last resort.

Thanks,

LBS

EDIT: Well, I dug out an old blackberry wall charger and cable and it immediately fixed the issue. I think its a bad LG charger and USB cable. I guess ill toss them.

I've experienced this. Does your battery stats page look a bit like this?



What charger AND USB cable are you using to charge the device? While I was using the bundled LG charger at the time, I was using an old HTC MicroUSB cable I had from a previous device when I encountered this problem. When I used the bundled LG MicroUSB cable instead, the device charged normally.
LG G3 D855 (Int/UK) - Rooted Stock LG 4.4.2
HTC One M7 (801n) - S-OFF, CyanogenMod 11 (Installer)
Sony Xperia Tablet Z (SGP311) - Rooted Stock Sony 4.4.2

Asus Nexus 7 (grouper) - Stock 4.3
HTC One X+ (Int) - ViperOne 2.1 (4.2.2)
Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 - Ultimate N7000 XXLSC
HTC Desire HD - Android Revolution HD

I've been using a 3rd party 6 foot long USB cable with a third party rapid charger. Last night my wife needed to borrow a USB charger, so I gave her mine and used the LG provided charger and cable for the first time last night. I hadn't really thought about it. Maybe its a bad charger?

Could possibly be that. I think the G3 might be a little picky with chargers and such you use with it, I'm not too sure as I've pretty much used the G3 wireless charging dock to charge my G3 (and that is very picky with what you use with it, if it's not at least 1.8A then say hello to constant beeps and errors, my old 2.1A Nexus 7 charger seems to power the dock fine.)
