    So last night I was streaming video with my phone plugged in and the battery died after about 70 minutes. The battery wasn't fully charged when I started but I didn't think the phone could possibly drain the battery when charging. Has anyone else had this happen or know how to app it from happening?

    How was it being charged? If you were using a usb port, a car charger or lower quality wall charger I can see how that can happen. Its possible with the stock wall charger but it is a lot less likely.

    what's even worse is when you try to navigate with a low battery and the phone dies, while charging!!! It's occurred several times to me. I hate when that happens.:mad:

    I only use the stock wall charger. I just don't understand why HTC would make a product that can drain the battery than the charger can handle

    In some cases even plugged in you can kill the battery. The phone can use more power than the charger can give it.

    Also depends if you're using cheap USB cables. I bought a Sprint Mifi card and it came with a big fat cable that had no problems charging, and seemed to charge faster than my regular USB cable. Are you using your stock cable?
