Default Ultra slow baterry charging via dock M36H

Hi, I would like to ask if there is anyone of you happen to be via a docking station charge the phone for a long time ? Yesterday I played Real Racing 3 which understandably draining battery as hell , so I put the phone in the dock station and keep playing RR3 but battery had been keep drained so I turned off the game and tried simply just looking over the net with the phone still embedded in the dock but situation has been the same percentages keep going down . So I turned off the display and let it charge if it stabilizes . I've found that one percent will be charged in 5 minutes which means over eight hours to full charge . I've tried to force kill Smart Connect (I've read that might be solution for this unusual draining) but nothing hapens...even about 2 times that process Smart Connect itself again launched and let notification popped. Otherwise I've tried to kill all applications to sure that no application is taking battery time. My charging set is :

1x Dock M36H
1x USB charger original manufacturer
1 MicroUSB cable length 2m (buying longer because of log distance of the socket)

My observation is that it could cause just that long cable because when I charge the phone with shorter on one side connected to the dock and on the other side to the PC and it worked flawlessly , and the phone has been around for 3h charged . Do you have some experience with it ? Or cable length does not affect the charge? Thank you for your insights

not only the length, the built quality is important too (armoring and connectors). the more tick it will be the better results you'll have (transfer speed and charging efficiency). for the dock I advise a cable of 1 meter only if it's cheap.

To further test and see if your extension cable is faulty:

connect the extension cable directly to the phone itself, not the dock and see how fast it charges compare to the stock. You can also download the app called better battery status as it shows the actual charging current. by comparing using just stock cable vs added extension, it should give you a better idea.

Current Devices:
Sony Xperia ZR, Google Nexus 7

HTC (Amaze 4G, Sensation 4G, Desire HD, HD2, Diamond 2, P3600), Oppo Find 5
