Nexus 10 Charges faster if it is on

I don't know if it is unique to my Nexus 10 but I've observed that it charges much faster if it is on (not turned off) during the charging process. I've verified this with the provided charger as well as with several others. All the chargers had at least 2.0 amp capacity. I use a Pogo cable normally but this is also the case with the micro USB socket.

This seems to be counter intuitive but it's certainly true with my Nexus 10. Currently it is running Android 4.4.4.

I almost always charge while powered off because it makes sense that it would be faster. It always seems to take FOREVER! Now that I've read this I think I'm going to have to time it and see which way wins.

I'd be most interested to see if you find the same thing I did. Frankly, what I observed seens counter to everything I've ever read about this. Thanks.

Hi,

It does indeed charge faster, but when charging while it's off it seems to solve some problems with battery calibration and battery last longer .

I charge during shutdown, takes about 6 1/2 hours. My Nexus 7 only 3 hours.

Hi,

Nexus 10 has a 9,000mAh battery, while Nexus 7 (2013) has an almost 4,000mAh and Nexus 7 more or less 4,350mAh, that's why there's a big difference between the charging times.

Definitely not what I have seen in my usage. Sometimes when I am playing a game on my Nexus 10 while it is plugged in, the battery percent drops, albeit slowly...

Yeah, games suck a lot of juice, especially with high brightness. The device is sucking more juice than can be replaced by the charger
