    Hi all,

    I bought my Incredible 4 hours ago and its been plugged into the included power cable to my Laptop and its still charging from 16% to current 75%! My 6 week old HTC Eris (yes I want to sell it) charged far faster and in both cases i did a few hours of set up some app downloads etc and she is still not fully charged. Should i be nervous?:blackdroid:

    Use the wall plug to charge it.

    Use the wall charger. Most laptop USB ports can only deliver around 500ma of current, and this impedes the charging. The wall outlet should charger quicker.

    Cheers,

    For faster charges, yes. But you can use the PC link cable to charge it as well, just takes a lot longer.

    No. The link cable will charge the phone, but slower than the wall charger. I use my link cable to keep the phone topped off during the day, so that when I go out at night, the phone is fully charged.

    Cheers,

    Well its been an hour since i plugged in my Incredible with supplied home charger and i still am slow in charging? In the last hour I have only gained 10% charge sitting at the time of this repost at 85%!! I(t makes me wonder if the phone itself is defective as I've done all but use a car charger. ll

    Just got mine earlier. Using the wall charger it did not take very long for it to fully charge from when I opened the package (maybe 2 hours?)

    That would really suck, but maybe yours is defective.

    At the recommendation of the tech at the Verizon Store I let my phone run completely dead off it initial partial charge. Following this I powered down the phone and plugged it into the wall charger. It charged up to 100% in just over two hours.

    Have you tried charging the phone while its off?
