Default Charging EVO 3D

Anyone know if the charging on the 3D will be like the 4G where when you take it off the charger it drops immediately? Would be nice to see if HTC fixes this to where it's something like a trickle charge.

I also wonder if the chargers (car and wall) from the orginal evo 4g will work with the evo 3d.

There will be no trickle charge because it wears down a battery faster. what they need is two charging circuits. On for charging, and one to run the phone on after the battery is charged

I agree. There has been some reports on here by people running the trickle charge kernel that have seen their battery burn up or explode. I am sure people will still develop this kernel for the 3D though.

6 reports out of thousands of people using SBC kernels. And the problem was pretty definitively traced down to cheap Chinese knock off batteries. I never saw a report, or even heard of a report, where someone using a decent battery ever had any kind of problem.

I would assume any USB charger would work. They're not even really "chargers", they're just power sources. The phone has it's own internal charging circuitry.

There will be no need for SBC kernels for the 3d. The reason they were created was to fix a charging problem that was in the n1, incredible and Evo only. HTC has fixed the bug in the most recent phone lineup. Don't worry SBC haters and lovers, it wont be needed

If it uses micro-USB (like it should) then of course they would.

Here you go! Go nuts, buy a million of each of these:

If this is true, then that is great news!

Default Charging Problems

Hey guys, pretty new to this but here's the story;

My Evo 3D has been rooted and now has the latest version of leedroid (all done by my cousin) but now I'm having issues with the Charging.

I leave the phone to charge overnight but when i wake up, the light is green but the battery is only around 70-80%, I then have to leave it to charge until 100% and then unplug.. is this a software or hardware issue? it seems it stops charging when reached 100% but then doesnt remain active.

I've had a look around the forums but can't find any fixes.. please help!
