    That is obviously not proper behavior for battery charging. Normal charging should be about 7-8% charge per 10 minutes of charging up to about 92-95% full charge. The last 5-8% takes longer as the battery charge protection software slows the flow of amps to protect the battery from over-charge.

    If you haven't already done so, I would recommend a restart and or a battery pull and then try charging again. Also, I would check that the charger is in a wall socket that is actually getting power as well as making sure the micro usb connection to the phone is proper and fully inserted.

    Also, I should have added that if you are charging via a USB connection to a computer than it can take up to 5 times as long to charge as using a standard wall socket. If you are using the phone while plugged USB to a computer, you may not see any gain in battery level, but not any loss either.

    Can you explain a battery pull? Or is that exactly what it says... Pull out the battery, the put it back in?

    Yes, but wait about 10 seconds or more before putting the battery back in. There has been some debate on whether to have the phone powered down first or not, personally I haven't found a difference either way.

    Different chargers can charge at different rates. I still use my old Blackberry Bold charger simply because it has a longer cord. If your not using the charger that came with the phone, than definitely give that a shot.

    If your still having difficulty, you may want to call Verizon tech support. Your charger or even your phone (hopefully not!) may be defective.

    Thanks. I'll try that next time I totally kill the battery.
