    I've read in another thread somewhere that there are some car chargers that only charge at 0.5amp (as if charging via usb) and therefore cant keep up with the actual battery drain.

    The question is, how can you tell when its charging at the lower (usb) rate as opposed to full rate (wall charger)? Is there a different icon or something.

    if you go into Settings --> About Phone --> Battery it will say Charging USB or Charging AC

    I have a car charger on its way which hopefully should supply 1A so full charging... I'll post my results
