My DroidX is my first Android and I just came from using Blackberry for several years. With my last Blackberry (Tour) it only took about 60 minutes to go from 0% to 100%, though I never took it that low and usually got a full charge in about 45 minutes.
The DroidX seems like it takes at least two hours, if not more, to get a full charge from near zero to 100%. This is when using the supplied wall charger.
At work I use a microUSB cable to charge my phone since I don't have a wall charger there. With the screen locked on (using the dock mode as a clock, though I don't actually have the dock itself) it did not appear to charge one bit after about an hour of being plugged in. The percentage never changed. I was kind of surprised that the phone is using all 500mA that the USB port is supplying just to run the screen. This means I can't have the screen on and expect to increase charge at the same time. Kind of sucks because I like looking at it.
Has anyone found a true rapid wall charger for cheap on Amazon or eBay? I've had bad luck before with other crappy wall chargers that put out less current than a USB cable, so if anyone has confirmed a good one, please let me know. It's also kind of lame that the supplied charger has such a short cable (I realize that's because it's a USB cable) but I'd like one with a longer cord. I just ordered two car chargers that people recommended on this forum so I've got that covered.
Any help would be appreciated.
