    I've noticed something odd. When using my chargers that came with my Nexus One, it takes a really long time to charge, maybe four hours or more. These chargers used to charge my Nexus One extremely fast, in about an hour or so.

    I just plugged in to the Droid 2 Global included charger, and now I'm charging much, much faster.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Android can tell the difference between types of AC adapters...

    Depends on how low I am, but it goes really quick. I use the stock charger, plus the ones from the accessory kit.

    Just today my friend who the same phone as me borrowed my charger and while his phone was on my charger his touch screen wouldn't work, he unplugged it and it worked just fine, so that might be true haha

    Is anyone having a problem with it discharging after left in charger all night? Do you think it could be because I am plugged into the computer via USB rather than the electrical outlet?

    I purchased the dock yesterday and charged it from 20% to 100% and it took about 4 hours to do that I believe, however today I used it and it took it from 40% to 80% in about 45 minutes. I know with experience from iPhones that the USB charging (off a computer/laptop/monitor) takes a lot longer sometimes than it does if it is plugged into a wall.

    How fast your phone charges depends on the output of the charger. Wall warts charge faster as a rule, because most of them output 800 or more milliamperes. USB ports are somewhere around 500 milliamperes. This is how I understand it anyway.

    Good day. :blackdroid:

    SOME phones check for a specific pin/wire on a cable, to see if it's an approved high output charging source (usually around 800-850mA). If that wire isn't present, the phone defaults to 500ish mA, which is what a standard USB port puts out. It's how Apple products can tell you "This is not an approved charger" or whatever error they pop up when you use one of the cheap Chinese knockoff boomboxes (I used to sell them haha).

    I have no idea if that's at work in your case, but it's possible.

    If you use your phone while charging it(even lightly) it will take much longer to charge. Is it safe to use an htc charger or a BB charger with my phone?

    about 45 minutes from 0-100%.
