Does anyone here have a 2A charger and can tell us how much MI3 will get of that current? It is said that the MI3 comes with fast charging, but I bought a 2A charger and the maximum the phone gets is 1.3A. I am curious if that is the maximum the charger will output or just the phone can't receive more.
Did the measurement using Elixir2 app from the market, the "Information" thing. The standard Xiaomi charger puts out a maximum of 1A, and the brand new charger I got a maximum of 1.2A.

Nobody has a 2A charger? Maybe from a Samsung phone or tablet.

I have 2A charger that I got with MI3 India. My phone gets 1.3 - 1.5 A while doing fast charging. I guess that's maximum it can draw.

For me only 0.6A
Hey man I heard someone on AOSP gets 1.9A, IDK how he does that.
For me even 1.3A would be good, look:

I have tested it with more chargers, in more rooms, but I get only 0.6A
Every charging takes 3.5h for me.

Yes, 0.6A is pretty bad. Even stock charger is 1A. Maybe thay did that in MIUI to protect battery heating (to prolong battery life). I haven't tried AOSP (I'm waiting for non-MIUI stable lollipop release), but I will certainly check it out.
I've also noticed that in the chargers where two middle data pins don't work (meaning there is no voltage in them), charging doesn't work either (or it is waaay slower).

EDIT:
I've just charged my phone using Logitech charger (that came with my MX1100 mouse), and found out that MI3 uses 1A on this charger (don't know what is the rate on original charger). I am using MIUI 5, latest stable.
