    HOW TO: Charge your battery... quickly! (and one problem)

    Hey everyone,

    I am sure this has been posted but wanted to sort of let people who may be new (like me) know.

    I have finally found a way to charge my battery relatively quickly.

    1. Must be rooted
    2. Must be on a proper plug in power source (computer USB doesnt work well)
    3. Must not be streaming background audio.

    --

    1. Download SetCPU
    2. Create a profile allowing your phone to underclock all the way down to a minimum 216mhz and max 316mhz when the screen is off.
    3. Plug in and charge.

    I have found I can jump 20-30% in as little as 30-45 minutes whereas before it took forever.

    If there is a BETTER way to charge FAST please let me know.

    My main problem now is a car charger/mount i have.
    Running GPS and charging doesnt charge, just gets the battery all hot...

    I am going to test whether or not it is actually DISCHARGING the battery while plugged in/screen on because i have a sinking suspicion this MAY be happening.

    Anyone else have that problem?

    Android overclocking allows you to set profiles. I set mine to underclock when charging (power) and overclock (usb so it still performs well when I just need to connect it to the computer). and it charges insanely fast. Ill time it next time I have to charge.

    Typed this all by myself like a big boy
    I puts the Gingerbread on the Droid: Gingerdroid.

    I'm only able to select 312mhz for the max, and 216 for the min.

    Right... these are correct. The min is 20x and max should be 312 I believe.

    Im not looking at it currently but these sound about right
