Default hilarious jab at samsung

Idk if this is just for the vzw version of the g2 but anytime i plug it in to one of my samsung chargers that came with my galaxy nexus (when on the stock vzw rom), instead of going to slow charge mode it says something along the lines of it being a substandard charger and that i should plug the cord that came with my g2 to charge it safely then cuts the power. Has this happened to anyone else using samsung chargers? Or could it just be that it really did dectect something wrong with the 2 particular samsung chargers i tried?
the definition of open: “mkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u git:// android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git ; repo sync ; make" .....gangsta mike drop...

The actual charger that comes with the G2 has integrated QuickCharge 2.0. Hence why you will notice much, much faster charge times.

Not many other chargers and phones have this capability.

I get that with a BlackBerry charger, too. It has to do with the amperage output.

Oh ok lol i thought it was a little brazen to just not allow your competitors chargers to work as all the other non samsung chargers i have at least will slow charge.

Yea i get that its faster w the stock charger what i was saying is that normally you get a notification when using a non stock charger that its in slow charge mode but with all my samsung chargers it wont charge at all, it shuts it off compleatly. I thought it was a Samsung specific thing but apparently it has to do with certain amperage outputs it wont let the phone charge with

You make it sound so special

It's nothing more than a high output charger. Plug it in an Ipad or > 2.0 AMP charger and it will charge just as fast, without the fancy "2.0" technology :P

This phone is stupid with chargers.
I have a dual charger, 2.3 amps and 1 amp. It fast charges on the 1 but complains about the other.
It complains about an HTC cable and cuts charging, but will charge normally when simply unplugged and plugged in again.
