    It takes my t bolt nearly 6 hrs to charge from 10% to 100% , does anyone else think this is ridiculously a long time to charge a stock battery? my OG D1 used to take just under 2 hrs. how long does it take your phone to charge ?

    Not even half that long, even if it's already turned on.

    USB or wall charger?

    Also, was the phone turned on and in use during part of this time? If so, how was the phone being used? 4G area? Lots of variables.

    You may have an issue. I can play games on mine and go from 9%-100 in about three hours max. Im also using the 1500 mah batteries.

    With a USB charger I've noticed a rather slow charging, slow enough to where I had to switch it to my wall charger so I can see it taking up to 6 hours. However with a wall charger it's very fast, maybe 2 hours.

    I haven't timed it... at least a couple hours from 10%...but to the op it is significantly longer than my D1. About 50% longer id say...

    On one of the little note tabs on the charger cord when you first get it, it says the normal charging time for a normal battery is 4 hours, 5 hours for extended battery.

    Most USB chargers provide about 800mA, this is also true for some car chargers and wall chargers. The best that I know of is 2A of current and this will not be from a computer USB, only car or wall outlet type chargers. The more current the charger has the faster the charge rate. Something to think about when shopping for a charger.

    Also, if the phone has GPS on and is constantly syncing data such as email to Google or another server, the phone will draw more power leaving less charge current for the battery. This will increase charge time considerably. One of my car chargers is only 800mA and will barely charge the battery when using Google maps for car navigation. This would happen with any smart phone. I got a 2A car charger and it helps a lot but still does not charge as fast as when the phone is idle.
