I just bought my LG Optimus V yesterday. For the first battery charge, I was told to let it die completely before trying to charge it up to 100% without using it. I've been charging it for +15hours now, and it's got a little bit left to go... it's been stuck there for a while now. Is this normal for the first recharging the battery? I didn't get an actual charger with the phone, it's an adapter and USB cable. I've had it plugged into a powerbar/wall, not my computer by USB alone. Is it possible that it's not charging fully because there are applications running in the background? If so I guess I'm better off turning it on and shutting them down?
