Priv - Slow charge time?

Views: 1292 Replies: 11
I just got my first Blackberry, and love it! Except two problems. 1. They physical keyboard is terrible compared to my OLD stratosphere II
2. It takes FOREVER to charge.
It takes anywhere from 3 to 8 hours to fully charge from low battery.
Charging the phone while playing a game on it, at times DIScharges the phone (percentage actually goes down, while its plugged in).
This is not a typical charge time is it?
Has anyone had this issue or is it a known issue?
Fix?
I have updated to android 6.0.1

I have updated to android 6.0.1You might want to invest in a Quick Charge 2 type of charger. Or, at least, once that provides much more power. I tend to use the charger that came with my Playbook. The QC 2 tends to put out much more power when the device is really depleted and slows the charge at it gets higher. My layman's understanding!

Thankyou for the welcome! I do have a portable battery that has a 2 Amp output slot, and my MSI also has a "super charger" slot that I assume is just a 2 amp USB slot.... Those 2 amp connections help, but it still takes hours and hours!
@electrox3d
The stores in my small town did not have them in-store. Also, its basically the only android with a qwerty. Anyways I love the phone, despite a downgrade on the keyboard....
charger for the playbook? Is that any different than a typical fast charge 2 Amp output?

If it doesn't improve things, you probably have a bad battery

Even using my charger from my Q10, the most mine takes to charge (from dead) is 4 hours. But like the others say, an investment in a quick charger is not a bad idea. I do recommend you look for something OEM, however. But maybe I'm just paranoid.

It takes less than 1:30 h on a QC charger. I have this one and it's definitely worth a 12 USD investment. [Qualcomm Certified] BlitzWolf QC2.0+2.4A 30W Dual USB EU Charger Adapter With Power3S Tech | BlitzWolf.com
(this one is for EU power sockets so be sure to check that depending on where you live)

Have you found that you can still use chargers that supply less juice after using the Quick Charger?The phone knows what it's plugged into, it will give the fastest charge possible with what it has to work with. A possible exception would be a knock off quick charger, make sure it's Qualcom cerified if buying a QC.
Also make sure you are using a good cable, just as important as the actual charger, the elcheapos have under sized wires, and especially if long, will not charge properly no matter how big a charger it's plugged into.
Would you try and power your house with a 100 ft, $19.99extension cord from Kmart?
Personally, I use wireless charging. It does take 4 to 6 hours, but I drop it on the charger before I go to bed, so I don't care.

I think your all pretty much right, according to the "ampere" app, both my supposed 2A usb ports are only putting out 500mA up to 1A barely better than the wireless charger!
