    Charging

    Hi guys,

    When i charge my Nexus 4 at home through a replacement cable but using the plug supplied connected to the mains, my Nexus charges pretty quickly, but when charging my Nexus at working using an identicle cable but this time through the usb port of my pc, my phone charges a lot slower, is there a reason for this?

    Do phones normally charge slower when connected to a pc rather than the mains?

    Yes, usb charging is always slower.

    Yes indeed, and I agree that USB charging is a bit slower as opposed to charging via the mains.

    Or I've had the other problem where my wall charger thinks it's in "USB" mode instead of "AC" and charges super slow ...

    Keep an eye out for that one too
