I may won?t go with you on this as the original epic charges extremely sluggish but the new epic touch 4g charges way quicker than the original epic still with a larger battery. So I think there must be something wrong with your phone get it replace or at least get it checked with your retailer

Re: Samsung Epic 4G Touch battery is charging very slowly with wall plus USB charging

As per my experience I can say that Samsung Smartphone is usually slow charging. My Nexus S 4g acquires 4 to 6 hours to charge. Begin on over to Samsung Galaxy S2 forum and you will see the similar objection. Earlier models, and I believe Epic Touch are too, make to limit charge rate to 650 ma sail through. It may bound the charge rate even additional if the phone is being use though charging. I was capable to expose as researching the cause of my sluggish charging Nexus S.

Motorola Photon 4G charged about 5 times sooner than my Samsung epic as a result it should be slower than photon 4 G

Well is it accurate that charging rate to some extent a function of the core I might vow so as to one of the developer tweaked a kernel for the minute, and one of his tweaks was "amplified power represent from USB for faster charging

You are absolutely correct but IIRC no one has succeeded in influence the epic OG, I'm not sure whether it was connected to galaxy. I anticipate we can have a developer who can make it possible on this device

Wel I was thinking it Takes longer to fill a larger tank. But he Evo 3d is as regards to the same ability and size battery and recharges about two times as faster. similar with the Motorola Atrix.

I just want to ask wouldn?t charging is slower let the battery to last longer I don't signify like longer as in on one charge, it?s as in years what I saying is this increase the durability . Batteries have a propensity to go bad after a hardly any years of make use of and can't be charged the subsequent to a while.
