Hi, to all

I have a brand new RAZR i with a peculiar charging problem.
When I plug in the phone with the original charger (850mA) the phone only charges up to 98% (Even if I left the charger plugged for 12+ hours)

I tied with other charger (also rated 850mA) and the phone charges up to 97%

Next I test it with a tablet charger (rated 2000mA) And the battery charged to 100%
Also if I plug the phone in my computer USB it charge to 100%

Is my battery faulty? or I need a 2000mA charger for this phone?

Hi, mine also charging only to 97%. Sometimes it charges to 100% on original charger, sometimes not. I read that it's some security thing to avoid overcharging battery but I'm not sure.

If the Ri reaches 100% it stops charging and start using the battery instead of charger...
So if u look a few hours after charging is complett it will have lost a few percent of battery...

example: (charging over the night)
10 p.m. = 25% (plug in to charger)
2 a.m. = 100% (stops charging and uses battery)
6 a.m. = 97% (used 3% battery in 4 hours)

if its pluged into a pc it will charge to 100% and stays at 100%.

So. it´s Normal?

Then way it charges at 100% with a 2000mA Charger ?
This behavior occurs even if the phone is off while charging.


Also my phone came with jelly bean 4.2 out of the box...
