I see....my aurto dim is on....what is this by the way?

More or less i use it like you...and after one day is 40% down...but with nomral use makes it for the next day also....

Anyhow...i think 4 hours is not normal charging time...if we get the extended battery it will take how long?8 hours?This is not normal.

Auto Dim is a light sensor on your phone that will dim your light if the phone thinks its dark in the room, or some shit like that. Point is that sensor eats battery.

As for the 4 hrs... Im not sure, I charge mine at night and when I awake *100%*... never really timed it.

I have noticed the same lengthy charging time. I have a 45 minute commute and the battery level will rarely change when I have charged with my DC charger for the full commute.

If you battery level is at 40% 4 hours doesn't seem that bad.
If your battery level was at 90% and it was taking 4 hours, then i'd be worried.

Mine doesn't take nearly that long to charge. So I'm wondering what is running when you're charging it? I've noticed if I leave certain apps on the battery drains very fast.
