Default Pogo pins charging at higher rate.

Recently my wife broke her USB port on her n7, so I decided to just attach some wire to the pogo pins as I know there was a ground and a 5v line. After I installed battery monitor, hers was charging at 1000 to 1300ma. Mine charges at 500-600ma.

Maybe my port is broken too I'm not sure. Can anyone confirm this?

Download battery monitor widget from play store. It will display the MV on the top right of the screen.

I also charge my nexus from a homemade dock at the 1000-1300 mark compared with my usb port. The usb port is so bad that most of the time I see it discharging while in use!!!

I believe this is a hardware fault as mine used to charge great through usb. at one point my usb socket stopped working altogether, I ran a soldering iron over it and it is at least working again, still slow to charge.

I have also been following a thread about this in the google user forums. One person stated that when they changed the usb board charging rates resumed to normal standards. There is a lot of people in that thread suffering from this. Bad show google.

Have you guys confirmed that the n7 charges faster off the pogo pins?

It can charge just as fast off USB I know mine does I think the problem seems to be that the ports are easily damaged and it slows the charge rate

I have been following a thread on google forums about people suffering from poor charging rates. I can confirm that many users in that thread, myself included, have found that charging through pogo pins charges normally, whilst the usb charging takes forever and even discharges with screen on!!

MTP not working?, dont follow this advice.

It is with a third party charger as my charger broke, but it was the same with the original.
