    I've had my phone for about a month. It use to charge within an hour or so, now it taking more than 4 hours for a complete charge.... Is there an app that can speed up the charging process? Pls help...

    Are you on the stock rom? Charge time varies depending on the kernel. My Thunderbolt with extended charges up from 0-100 in around 3-4 hours. On stock it was between 1-2 hours.

    if you are stock, there is a problem. it should only take 2 hours MAX to charge from dead to full.

    like the first poster said, charge times depend on the kernal. change the kernal and see if that fixes the problem.

    If you don't know that means you're stock. The stock rom is the rom that shipped with the phone. If you're stock and it took you 7 hours to charge your regular battery then there is an issue. I recommend exchanging the phone.

    Could also be an issue with the battery, or even a rogue app that's using WAY more juice than it should. Might wanna try something like Watchdog apps to monitor app usage to see if something is running that shouldn't be (and that would be a LOT).

    The Stock vs Rezound battery question, is because the new HTC Rezound has a battery that will also fit in the Thunderbolt, and many people have bought that battery to use instead of the original TBolt one, since the battery from the Rezound is a slightly higher capacity battery. Unless you've knowingly bought one, then you have the stock battery. Another way to check, is to just look. The battery for the Rezound is red, the stock Bolt one is black.

    Ill bet your battery is f'd..

    I'd take your phone to a store and tell them what's happening and they should swap out your battery no charge.

    I'd be surprised if an app were the cause, but an easy way to tell would be to charge the phone with it turned off and see if it charges faster. Should be less than 2hrs dead to full.

    If it charges normally with the phone off, report back and we'll see if we can narrow down an app that may be causing it.

    What charger are you using and how long is the cable? Are you using the stock HTC wall adaptor/3' USB cable that came with the Thunderbolt or are you using something else?

    At home, I found that with a 6' USB cable I had laying around, paired with any OEM charger (ie. Motorola or HTC), the actual amount of current going to the phone dropped down to almost a trickle.

    I've been using an after market charger that I bought because my phone was almost dead at work. It has a 4 foot USB cable and the brand is qmadix. I got it from a VZW kiosk (owned by diamond wireless). I know 3 feet to 4 feet isn't much of a difference but charge times are consistent and so is the voltage.

    What happened when you charged with the phone off?

    Still just as long?

    I haven't charged my phone off with the after market charger. I've got the extended so I just use it throughout the day and charge at night.

    Well like I said before, an easy way to tell if its the battery or a rogue app, would be charging with the phone off. If it charges in a couple hours, batteries fine, if it still takes hours, get a new battery.

    Also, I have a cheap aftermarket dock I use to charge spare batteries and it takes a LONG time to charge. 5hrs or so for the standard size battery, so could be a combo of those things.

    If you want to narrow it down you're going to have to do some troubleshooting.

    Haha.. makes a little more sense why you weren't trying to get your slow charging issue worked out. :)

    I heard that company's just put out a newer charger that charges over a longer period of time for a longer lasting battery. My takes that long as well. So it there something wrong or is it designed to charge overnight? I have a galaxy s2.
