When I plug in my GT-I9505 to charge, after about two minutes, it starts beeping with a double beep sound about every second. Someone suggested that this wasn't a phone issue, but third-party software. But I am interested to note that the beeping occurs exactly as the lightning bolt flashes in the battery charging icon at the top of the screen.
Well something is definitely up with my phone and this is nothing like any of those "poor battery life" posts. I'll just get on with it. So recently (the past month or so) my phone hasn't been charging normally, i noticed that the little lightning bolt to indicate charging at the top of the phone would disappear and show the battery percentage every 3 or so seconds.
Looks like my unit is no longer charging. When I plug in the 30 pin I get a pop-up stating "Battery Critically Low - Disable all apps to conserve battery." I get the "Lightning Bolt" icon over the battery icong stating that it is charging, or powered, but it will not charge the battery.
My 30 pin cable is a bit worn at the connection. Maybe this is the issue?
I have had the nexus since the day it came out and its been a great phone but around 2 days ago i have seen the dreaded still charging lightening bolt on the battery icon, i first off ignored it but i have been seeing a huge decrease in battery performance within 4 hours i would be 2 thirds drained.
We have all heard of battery saving techniques to get our phones to last the entire day, but my question is in regards to charging strategy...
More specifically, is there a 'best practice' for charging your battery?
Is it best to let it get down real low before putting it on the charger? If so, is it best to leave it on the charger until it fully charges?
Not sure if anyone of you experienced this problem before.
It occurred to me that my charging from socket is so much slower than normal, thus I downloaded current widget to check the current that is charging, and it turns out that it is charging at USB speed, and in my Battery information in Settings, it is displayed as USB charging instead of AC charging.
