    So i forgot my charger this morning ARGGGGGGG. Then i remembered that i had a "spare" charger in my car. So i plugged it in my phone to the wall and a couple of minutes later a message popped up stating something like "the charger in use is not strong enough for this device" i am now noticing that the even though the little battery icon is acting like its being charged my battery widget keeps getting lower and lower. So i now learned that even though a charger might fit it that dosent mean that it would give it a charge. Today is going to suck lol.

    I think this charger is from non smart phone device WTF. I havent had a dumb phone in a year. So y the hell was this charger in my car SMDH.

    yeah, you gotta make sure the voltage is high enough to power the phone.
    just checked the charger i use daily and it says output=5v=850Ma.

    so if it is lower than that i doubt it will work well.

    No, 430mA will still charge it. It just may not charge it such that incoming charge > outgoing (to phone usage). mA measures current, not power.

    What is the voltage on your charger?

    4.4 volts. It wont charge it at all. I thought that maybe if i turned it off it would charge it. Then come to find out that the charge light won't even come on. So i am S.O.L. I would let it charge in the car but i dont want to cook my phone in the heat.
