    Just got a CLNR phone and have noticed that the phone is taking several hours to charge....its been connected since 9 am and the phones @ 74 %. Is that correct? Seems kinda long.

    That's way way long. My S3 will charge in under 2 hours from nearly dead.

    I have an s3 with a 7200 mah extended anker battery and it'll charge from 10% to 100% in 4 hours. I'm taking that you have the standard 2200 mah battery. It should charge in like 2 hours. Are you using the OEM charger?
