Hey everyone.

I noticed a lot of people have been having battery problems.

Not poor battery life, but the issue some people are having where they can only use their phone while its plugged in.

My question is what charger, more specifically, what charging cable is everyone using?

I've noticed that if I used one of my Samsung charging cables to charge this phone, it takes FOREVER! Where the Sony cable that came with the phone charges it literally 3-4 times faster.

The charging cube or block doesn't seem to matter as I am using a blackberry cube with both cables.

I have a feeling that using the wrong cable could be causing people issues with their battery. Like its not providing the battery the correct voltage or something, causing a malfunction.

I don't really have any proof or specific knowledge to base this on, its just a hunch.

So what'd your charging setup like?

Mine = Official ZL cable in a blackberry power cube.

yeah it charges much faster in sony charges than a samsung charger for me.acually your device wont accept power more than its requirement but unless the chargers and cables are faulty (defective)it may cause battery issues

Have that problem, and I'm not using the original charger; Using Motorola with motorola / nokia cable; Still...today you have 1 thousand different options to charge usb units, and as long as they're not defective, they should charge ANY certified product with no problem at all.
What I mean is I don't have any other cellphone who had trouble with that on past; if charger is 0,25A will charge slower, if it's 1,5A will do faster.
