I know the battery sucks but...

why does it take so long to charge? I haven't done any tests, and I guess I can't since I no longer have my Mogul, but my perception is that it takes almost twice as long to return to a given state of charge than the Mogul did. I have chargers at home, work and the car and the Mogul almost never got below 80%, and it would always get back to a fully charged state in about 45 minutes to an hour. I let the Tp get down to 60% (Wasn't hard) and it's been charging for over 2 hours and it's only up to 80%. Sometimes I miss my Mogul.

Re: I know the battery sucks but...

In 2 hours, I can get almost a full charge. How are you charging your TP, via USB perhaps?

Re: I know the battery sucks but...

Yeah, mine's actually charges relatively quickly. 2 hrs sounds about right esp. with no usage.

Re: I know the battery sucks but...

The stock wall charger charges at 1 A, but other wall chargers, and charging via USB typically charge at less ( I think 500 mA). If you are using your old chargers, or charging via USB, that could be the reason. Someone else pointed out, and I've come to agree with, that it takes ~1 minute to charge up ~1%, and I can usually get a full charge in ~1hr 40 min (100 min).

Re: I know the battery sucks but...

I charged my Vogue and Mogul both using USB all the time, but the TP definitely takes much much longer on USB. I'm now actually using a wall charger just for the TP at work, but it's still taking a long time...
