    I recently noticed my Incredible 2 was only showing the battery life to be 50% after charging it overnight. I switched AC chargers and the problem continued. So I figured the battery was done, for whatever reason, and I ordered a replacement battery from Verizon directly. The replacement battery also only charged to 50% after a full night's charge. So...it's probably an issue with the phone itself. I have Total Equipment Coverage but getting a new phone's a hassle and I like my Incredible 2 (not guaranteed to get another I imagine). I figure it might be the phone's "charging circuitry"...is that easily repairable? I need to have a fully-charging phone in a week or so... :-/

    Are you rooted and running a ROM?

    Is your phone acting up in any other way? Have you tried a factory reset? (Yes I know you probably don't want to start over, but it'd alot easier than opening up the phone and trying to figure out what you're doing:D)

    I've heard of usb ports dying, but never just charging to 50%.
