    Charging Dilema

    Well, I havent been on here in a while because i havent had any problem with my Droid.

    And, now I have a slight problem.

    It happens when I charge my phone in an outlet, it will say "Charging <percent here>" but then 10 seconds later it stops, but when I plugin my phone into my computer it will charge perfectly fine.

    Another issue is my phone will Power down with 5% of the battery remaining, but it will act as if it has 0% battery when I try to turn it on, however if I plug in my phone to charge. It instantly starts up with the alert of 5% remaining and will continue to charge until full.

    Any suggestions on why this is happening?

    I would try and buy a new one. And see if that works. If it doesn't, ill be surprised, and it means its the charging port and its insurance time.

    Shouldn't be the port if it still charges from the computer.

    Could be the battery too, usb charging method charges slower and actually gives a better charge than using an outlet and if the battery is going out, it may not accept the faster charge. Just an idea....

    And that issue with shutting down is normal. I believe its actually 4% where it shuts down. It doesn't have enough power to boot up at that point.

    Getting a new battery never hurts.
    But I found that charge's USB connector, that connect to your device, get worn down, becomes loose and don't connect well. So you may see starting charging then doesn't charge, because of the charger's USB loose connector.
    Get a new charger.
