TheNexus 7 charger has a 5V 2A charger while the HOX uses a 5V 1A. Could I use the nexus charger without damaging the battery or the phone ? Would it charge faster ?
I'm receiving a message each time I plug in my charger which says "Battery charges more quickly if you use original charger" and when powered down reads "The connected charger will take longer to charge. To charge faster, use the original charger and power cord." Further, even after charging an entire night, I only get a 75% charge.
I have a car charger (the charger has Input 12V - 24V, Output 5V 1A). When I plug the Note3 to the charger I see the small lightning icon inside the battery that tells me that the phone is charging. However, when the phone is on during the Map navigation, I can see that the battery still drains.
When I put my phone on the charger, the battery starts draining. I have to charge my battery on an external charger. Just prior to this happening, I kept getting a notice on my phone stating that the battery was disconnected. Nothing had happened to the phone. It wasn't dropped or anything of the sort. I'm baffled.
I have a Nexus 7 factory-included charger and I was wondering if I could safely charge my Nexus 4 with it. Reading from the specs printed on the chargers, the N7 charger outputs 2.0A at 5.0V, while the N4 charger outputs 1.2A at 5.0V. If it's safe, would it affect the N4's battery longevity in the long term? Considering it would be charged with a higher current.
