[Q] "Slow Charge" notification? What did I do?
I started seeing a "Slow Charge" notification yesterday saying that I should plug in a genuine HTC charger to optimize the charging time. I normally charge the phone at my PC using a USB docking station and have done this since the phone was new in April without ever getting this notification. Despite the notification, it still seems to charge fine though, although it might be imperceptibly slower, I didn't really test it. I did test with a wall charger and the notification went away (it wasn't the HTC charger), so at least it is checking for something.
I am charging the phone at work today (also through USB/computer) and get the same message, so it isn't just the home setup.
A couple theories that someone might be able to shoot down for me:
I accidentally ran my phone completely out on Saturday, would that have triggered anything? Maybe the battery needs a few cycles now that it has been fully* discharged?
The phone has been fairly warm when plugging in the last couple days (new game
), would that trigger this? It wasn't warm every time though and the notification is still there.
Unlikely, but was there a change with the 4.3 update that might effect this?
*The phone shut off, but I assume that didn't damage the battery since the phone did an automatic/controlled shutdown at 1% or so to go.
