    Hi all,
    So I'm watching a streaming game in my browser and my battery gets down to 28 percent.
    I plug it into the wall and the charge indicator comes on and I go back to watching the game. After about fifteen minutes I go to see how high the battery has charged up and it's down to 20 percent! So that means even plugged into the wall it's draining the battery?

    Except if the cable was faulty the charging icon would not have come on over the battery icon, right?

    There are some activities that can cause power consumption to exceed the charging capability, plus sometimes the phone halts charging if the battery gets too hot.

    When I run Trapster + Navigation on the charger, I have a zero sum gain (No Charge or discharge).

    Streaming video shouldnt consumer more power than the charger can provide, so I assume your battery got too hot.

    are you using the wall charger that came with your phone? That's the only one that I know of that can output 1A as well as trigger the A/C mode charging that causes your phone to actually draw 1A.

    Actually I wasn't using the charger that came with the phone. I was using the 1 that came with the kindle. I haven't touched my kindle since I got the new phone. Perhaps that's what the problem was. Thanks.
