    Was amazed how quickly my N5 charged compared to my old phone.

    Took some advice and installed the battery guru app someone posted about.

    Since then it seems to take twice as long to charge?

    you may have something there. i also have it installed after reading the same thread. its little more than couple of days. yesterday i kind of offhand noticed that it seems to take a little longer to charge, but did not think too much about it.

    I've been using Qualcomm BatteryGuru for three weeks. My N5 charges just as quickly as before, with the added benefit of much longer battery life. I'm very happy.

    i have to upgrade my own comment. this time i let the battery go down to 16%. then i put it on charge. i was tethering while it was charging. took one hour 47 minutes to reach full charge. that seems normal. even if it was slower it is negligible.

    I'm thinking the app does some sort of Calibration as charging has slowly returned to normal. About an hour and a half

    Might have something to do with the settings in this menu:
