    Well, I've had had my phone on for the last 16 hours or so and the battery had finally died, so I went to charge it and when I came back about 2.5 hours later, the battery was fully charged back up to 100%.

    Is it just me, or does the Droid charge extremely fast or at least faster than any other phone I've owned?

    Share your thoughts on this subject, I'd like to hear them. =]

    Not sure if it's faster than any other phone I've owned, but it does charge quickly :)

    It charges a lot faster then my old Storm 1 did. I have noticed it charges pretty fast. Somebody has a thread on charging times using different charging methods. I'm sure if you do a search you will find it, I'm to tired and lazy right now to look for it.

    thats normal..... I can drain mine to about 50-60% and charge it up in an hour.

    I think these are "LiPo" batteries which charge extremely fast.

    Lithium-ion polymer to be exact...... charge time is about 12 to 1.. . in other words, I estimate 12 hours of reasonable use will charge back to full in about one hour.

    Yeah it does charge fast. It's like an hour or so usually with the wall charger.

    the vehicle charger may hit it even harder.

    It charges alot faster then my Voyager ever did... And I have noticed that my dock charges faster than my wall charger did too... It may just be me though.

    Lithium-ion batteries have a "quick charge" feature. That is, when you plug the battery in, the first 90% charges within 1 hour, and usually takes between 1-2 more hours for the last 10%.

    Every phone I've ever had charges faster from the Vehicle charger as the input voltage is usually higher forcing more amps to the battery... but I don't know about the droid.
    If you can look at the tiny writing to see what the output voltage is, it may give a clue.

    I don't have the dock... I assume it has to charge through the little hookup connection verses inductance?

    Inductance would be cool.... if you tell me its inductance.. I may have to get one just for that!

    Negative on the inductance charging. That would be cool, but there is a little usb thingy in the charger that inserts into your droids's usb port when it sits in the dock.

    However, that being said, I would still highly recommend the dock!
