    My iPhone recently broke, so before I shelled out big bucks for another I thought I'd pick up a cheap Android device to see how the other half lives. Honestly, it's been nice so far. And at $79 the phone is a bargain. But ever since I got the phone about a week ago I've been getting a strange notification whenever I charge the device.

    I continue to get a notification saying "Slow charging. Use the original charger." The thing is, I am using the original charger and micro USB cable the phone came with. I've tried doing resets and even wiping the phone completely. Still, the notification persists. Another strange thing is that the phone itself doesn't really seem to be charging all that slowly. The other morning I was at 5% so I plugged the phone in and went about my business. Just a few minutes shy of two hours later the phone hit 100%, but the notification to use the original charger was there again, too.

    Could it be a bad charging brick or cable? I don't have a spare Micro USB laying around or I would have tested that already. Any other ideas?

    Yes, possible defective cable and isn't getting the capable current supply.. By all means, get a USB 3.0 to micro-USB and if things haven't improved you can try finding an appropriate charging block with same output voltage/amps

    So if I purchased an Anker cable from Amazon because, where it isn't an OEM product, will I still be having the same issue? Or must it be Motorola brand?

    Should be just fine.. I have absolutely no issues while using the USB 3.0 cables on both my Motorola devices
