Default [Q] Stock charger only charging at 1A

Hey all,
The stock charger that I got with my S5 (Australian) says it's a 2A charger.
But when I plug it into the wall, it only charges at 1A.
Also happens when I use my 2A car charger.

Anyone else experience this issue?

Possibly only the cable can handle 1A have you tried a different usb cable?

Using the same app, used it on the S4 and now S5 and got the same result. About 1-1.2 amps

Stock rom and kernel will only charge at 1200ma max if the screen is on. It goes up to 1800ma with the screen off. The charge rate is still dependent upon having a good or a bad cable though
