I did the same, but it takes all night to get 80% whereas the direct USB takes a couple of hours to 100%

Ookay... I just connected the Mulitmeter between smartphone and dock (it's a hassle.... Hacked USB cable would be nice....)

The official Sony wallcharger (1.5A) is charging the dock and Smartphone with 800-850mA.

I tried Doomkernels Fastcharge and forced constant AC =roughly 1300mA.
Strangly when I set it to 1500 or 2000 in Faux app it falls back to 800mA.

The battery was 85% charged when I made those tests.

I thought fastcharge applied only to micro usb port

Yeah,,,, so.... i made a reallife test!

Set FauxApp to "Constant AC" in FastCharge options.


in 5 hours it charged 16% xD 3.2% Per hour.

Then after that i set to "Custom" 1200mA

Charged from 76% to 100% in 3.5hours

tonight i'm trying to empty the phone (Unreal Epic Citadel might be a good idea, or maybe GFXbenchmark Battery Test....) and set to Custom 1500mAh and see what happens.
