Takes me 2 hours from 0 to 100% with the original DK30 dock.

about 2.5 hours here from 5%, but I normally just plug it in to the PC over night and that would take about 6-8h? at 500ma from near flat.

Yup, that's right.

Here is a question for you as I brought it up above, would a slow charge from USB be better for the battery than a charge at ~1500ma on the stock Sony chargeror even close to 2000ma from a Samsung/etc charger?

I've seen about 1900ma peak on one charger

Hmm, i know @hamdogg knows about batteries and stuff like that. I'm using the stock 1,5mAh(?) magnetic charger, and it charges my battery in about 2 hours. I don't dare using a third party (even Samsung) charger on it, since the risk of damaging the battery is too high. I'm willing to do it after 12 months though, since i have, and other have nothing to losen (warranty is gone).

It should take no more than around 2 hours with an original charger. Use either the original SONY USB (included in the package) or the original SONY 30DK DOCK. Are you using a third party charger? If yes, don't use it.

In theory it should take just over 2 hours, but this being the real world...
