    Are you charging it the same way? What are you doing with it while it's charging?

    I figured it out, the GPS was searching for a signal, it appears that as long the GPS is on and cannot connect it will search for the satellites draining the battery. I shut GPS off, and got a real quick charging time

    Interesting, I never turn off my GPS but it only searches when I enable Navigation.

    As do I. Quojo, you might have a runaway app that's causing the gps issues.
