    So the last two nites, I have noticed that when plugging the Lumia 920 in via USB rather than the included charger, I don't get a full charge overnight. The 900 used to be able to do that. What has changed or am I the only one having this issue. Granted once the charging plate finally arrives this might not be as big an issue but when traveling, there have been times I forgot my wall wart and had to use USB.

    I noticed the same thing. I bought the Energizer pad while I wait for my Nokia charger and it makes it so much easier to charge.

    Nobody else finds this annoying? Anyone know if the HTC 8x has the same issue?

    I had to charge with the USB (plugged into a wall jack) for the first four nights I owned the phone. It was always at 100% by morning.

    Same problem exists with iphone and iPad. Both require more power than usb 2 should support.

    You mean charged via USB through your computer?

    Its always faster through the wall outlet than through your computer. Every phone I've owned.

    Guys - I hear you on that - but I've never owned a phone that when hooked up to the computer via USB ports that didn't charge to 100% overnight (7-8 hours). This one doesn't. I know it's faster hooked up to a wall outlet or even a usb wall outlet for that matter. In fact, I've been impressed how fast things do charge there but the computer is a mystery.

    @snail - I guess that is the case. It's a bummer but that's the way it goes. If that's the price for better battery life then I suppose that's the way to go.

    I dont have a problem charging mine when the usb cable is plugged in to my computer at work (vs. the wall charger). Although, I haven't run the battery down to 0 to try it...its usually never lower than 40%.

    It could depend on the size of your battery? The output from your computer USB isn't going to be any greater, so in the same amount of time a 1500 mah battery will be filled to a greater percentage than a 2000 mah one

    I've charged mine with the usb port on my computer and the usb port in my car. Both charged fine.
