My z1 charges fine if i dont let it get below 40%. If i let the battery drop down to around 10% it takes a long time to reach 40% and then charges normally. It doesn't matter what method i use for charging it still charges the same, one observation i did make though is that when charging from a low percentage up to around 30% the phone gets very hot so it might be a good idea if we don't cycle our phones batteries so low?

Same problem here. Have you solved this problem? Thanks in advance.

Don't have the Z1 anymore but I never did figure it out. Was very sporadic when it happened.

If you are really curious maybe grab one of these:
Shows Volts and Ampere.
They are sold as "usb meter" in eBay/aliexpress for as low as $1.70 from China and actually work quite well.
Helps to easily spot a cheap cables(low ampere) or chargers(lots of varying voltage) that should go to the trash.

I updated to lollipop and this is happening to me now.
Before, I charge so fast, now on lollipop any charger I use is so slow even when turned off
it will take 7 hours to finish charging to 100%
