    I've been charging my phone on my laptop and it won't charge past 40%. Can someone please help me?

    I am not sure if I can help you for sure although I think I have had nearly every sort of charging problem.

    Here is what I would try:

    Disconnect from the USB

    Pull the battery from the Droid for 1 minute

    Replace the battery and power up the phone

    When the phone boots look to see what your battery level is

    Plug in to a wall charger only.

    I would bet it will charge just fine at that point.

    Good luck...and let me know if you strike out there.

    USB charges very slowly or even not at all if you have a lot of stuff running/the screen is on. A wall charger is best.

    Sweet! I plugged it into the wall about two minutes ago and it's already at 50%! I normally don't have any problems charging on my laptop, but I went ahead and tried the wall charge like you all suggested. Thanks so much.

    Is there a reason why the USB cable is short! A longer USB charging cable would be better! LOL!

    You don't want your USB cable too long. Get an extension cord instead.
