    Has anyone experienced this? I searched the forums and the common answer was that 3 hours was normal but it takes my phone around 8 hours to charge on both USB and wall charging.

    I just got the fascinate a few days ago. Defective battery or handset? I called Verizon and they said that it can't be troubleshot.


    I really like the phone but 8 hours is excessive.

    I think around three hours for a full charge is normal.


    Also, does your battery drain all the way at night? Late at night, my phone loses signal and drains dead in a few hours.

    Don't know why it would take anywhere more than 3 hours tops

    Granted I'm on custom kernels but I'm fully charged within 2 hours from nearly dead battery

    Yes more than 3 hours is a problem especially from the wall/AC. 2-2.5 is the norm from stone dead
