Default G Pad only charges at 1A, at best

I have my tablet plugged in to a 1.8A Blackberry charger

I have a widget showing max rate maybe touches 1A, but never more. Why is that?

SlimKat 6.0


LG G Pad 8.3 (GPE)
Stock 4.4.4

What cable are you using? Some cables don't support high-rate charging.

Sounds like your app is measuring the battery drain. Unplugged you go -600-800 mA, plug into an 1800 mA charger and you'll get about +1000 mA to the battery.
