Default G3 Taking 7hrs To Fully Charge

My G3 is at 45% and it says it's gonna take over 7hrs for it to fully charge.

Before anyone ask, yes..i am using the OEM charger and cable that cane with the phone.

I'm on my second G3 and really don't feel like exchanging this one for another one...

Are you using your phone while it's charging? Is it at a high brightness?

When my G3 is charging and I'm using it (redditing, XDA, Clash of Clans, etc.), my charge time is pretty insane as well.

THIS plus if your outlet is weak or not getting enough power it will take forever. I had a surge protector and mine was plugged into the last slot and was taking forever to charge until I checked it with a meter and found the last slot was weak and under powered. Tossed the whole thing out and have had no issues at all.

Yeah i was using it checking email and forums, but still didnt think it would take this long to charge. And in reality it didn't. I mean it took a little long but nowhere near 7hrs to charge. Maybe like 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hrs to charge...and thats with me using it. So i guess that would be normal in all actuality. The time estimate that the phone displays is just off its mark.

Hmm...this also interesting because i do have the charger plugged into a power strip. When i charge it today, i will plug it directly into a wall socket and see if that makes a difference as well.
