    Does this happen to anyone else? I live in a 4g area and my battery can't charge the phone fast enough to even keep up while using the navigation. What is the point then?! It is very frustrating. I love this phone but this one is really bothering me since I used to use my Droid all the time as a GPS nav. Is there a higher power car adapter I should be using?

    I had this happen due to an app consuming my battery faster than my phone could charge. I would recommend rebooting then keeping tabs on what is draining your batteries.

    Don't have thunderbolt but had the same issue w/ D1 while using goog nav/pandora simultaneously. Was 90% when plugged in, and 70% after my 2hr car ride. After subsequent updates to the OS/maps/nav I haven't had this issue as much... You may just need an update?

    Mine caught on fire through my car adapter.

    The Yugo just doesn't charge like it used to.

    Yes, you need 1000mah rated adapter.

    Even with a 1000mah if you run gps, stream BT Audio, and run the video camera it will discharge faster than itvcan charge. I found a Scoche 2.1 amp charger (look for iPad chargers) that keeps up. The rgulator in the Tbolt charge circuitry still limits it to 1amp net input so it doesn't fry the phone (used 'current widget' to verify, and tested on my Incedible which has the same issue before risking my new Thunderbolt).

    Yeah yet advanced task killers and turn off all essentials before each time u put down the phone. U also need a more powerful charger if problem persists.
