I've never had this issue using the LG charging pad.

Have you tried charging with phone off?

I used my Kindle usb cord with my apple wall adapter once and my DNA told me I was using an unapproved charger and that it would charge a lot slower

Just looked up the specs, and I found an old Palm USB to wall charger that fit the specs. I have it charging now to see if it will charge all the way. The output from the oem charger is 5v/1A -- the charger i was using was not putting out that amount.

Testing now...

I use the HTC charger at home, but at work I use a USB cable that I bought over a year ago for my old Incredible and it works just fine.

Looks like by switching to the different charger worked just fine. It now charges to "green".

That'll be it, then. I noticed the same thing using other chargers that didn't quite have enough juice. It'll never go to 100. Even with the 1 Amp charger, it stays on 99% for quite a long time before topping out.

I would say 750 mA is a bare minimum for reasonable charging, and even then with the phone off completely. The 500 mA charger in my car won't advance the charge at all if I'm using navigation.

I find that the last couple percentage take a very long time, even with the stock charger. Could be I have a poor quality charger though.

My 2 cents; It's not the cord that determines how it charges, its the port of the computer or the part that converts USB to AC. Thats the actual charger. Nowadays, most of my chargers have a USB cord that pulls out to plug into a computer. It's tough to keep track of the chargers. I use tape & a marker.
