Default [Q] Z2 thinks its charging after being unplugged

I've been having a weird problem with my Z2. When plugged into my car or my laptop I get an error message to say that the "phone is using more power than what is being supplied" and it stops charging. However, when I unplug the phone the LED stays red, and the lightning symbol appears by the battery and doesn't go off until a reboot.

Is this happening to anyone else? I've only successfully managed to charge it with the mains adapter and cable it came with, no other adapters work?

I had it replaced by CPW - even after a reboot it still thought it was being charged. Restore didn't fix it either.
They switched it out no problem.

Same here. If I use the magnetic charger in the car and then remove it, the charging light stays on. If plug the phone into the dock at home and remove it, the charging LED turns off. Not sure what's causing it.

Maybe its because, as shown on included leaflet, dock charger is dedicated to wall charges?

I have noticed that sometimes the time it says it has been on battery is way off, I took mine off the magnetic charging dock yesterday at 12:00pm but when I check in the battery section it is saying 17 hours 58 mins & 47 secs on battery, it should be saying 1 day & 1 hour on battery.
